On visiting the town of Dubrovnik during a recent cruise we were walking back to the ship when we were caught up in a downpour. fortunately we had just passed a little hotel with a nice bar so we took shelter. The reason I am reviewing this hotel is that you would not pass it if you take a taxi into the old town from the port and it is only a few hundred yards from the town centre. We only stopped off for a quick drink and the atmosphere was great, we were received by a friendly lad in the traditional bar and he provided us with some wine and soft drinks. One thing to watch out for is the price list as it is in Kunars which is roughly 7.5 to 1 euro. we ended up paying 52 euros for our drink but the Korak Chardonnnay was superb.

A short walk from the Pile Gate of old town, this restaurant was recommended by our host when we were staying on Mljet. In what is becoming a bit of a tradition of celebrating our four birthdays abroad, first in Marbella, Spain, then last year at Chez l'amis Jean in Paris, this restaurant was right up there rating high on ambience, service and food quality. I would recommend it and wish we had been in Dubrovnik long enough to have lunch there as well.

Perfect setting on a lovely early summer evening.
From an amuse bouche of a dressed cheese bread, to starters of goat's cheese soufflé, tian of crab and home made ravioli followed by the tenderest saddle of lamb, this meal was perfect.
Vegetables,prepared with attention to detail, were cooked to perfection.
A simple pannacotta and raspberry coulis was a perfect ending.
We all loved this restaurant. Don't miss out.

We are a young couple who went to Sesame for dinner during one evening in Dubrovnik. We sat at the terrace area which was very romantic. We went on the recommendation of the 'Where to eat' guide and had the sharing seafood dish. The customer service was great.I was particularly impressed when they brought their complimentary starter of goats cheese out and I immediately told the waiter that I didn't like goats cheese because unexpectedly, they make something else for me. Instead they gave me marinated anchovies which was delicious. The main itself was rather pricey (400 kuna) but it was large enough to fill both of us up and it was very nice. The setting was definitely very romantic and would be perfect for a couple on a special occasion.

The food tasted delicious with the use of authentic Croatian recipes. We had a large selection of wines including some super local ones. Our only criticism would be that the 3 menu choices were somewhat limited so we did not go there again.
