Description: Sesame Restaurant is a well known Dubrovnik Restaurant situated just a minute walk on the main road on Pile gate close to Hilton Imperial Hotel near Pile gate, close to the Hilton Imperial Hotel. Sesame Restaurant is located in the complex of an two hundred-years-old family house surrounded by rich vegetation, including orange trees and very interesting residential architecture from 1900s. All dishes are prepared carefully and respectfully by Paris Cordon Bleu trained chef Marina Žibert. Chef Marina offers a unique twist on local and Mediterranean cuisine with a touch of French cuisine using modern cooking methods like sous-vide for optimum temperature and timing to preserve flavor and vitamins from organic vegetables, meat or fish.

A stone throw away from tourist trap in Old Town, this little gem offers a much needed escape.

Seated just under an old tree with colorfull lamps providing a class experience in tranquility (even though the music played some cheesy remixes of classic songs and not catching their true spirits).

We had astonishing prepared fish: salmon, tuna and sea bass, all very delicate cooked. Also, the veal was quite exquicite.

As a down side, the vegetables was nothing special and failed to complement the dishes sufficiently.

For deserts, we had cheesecake, tropical storm and think pink. They all were a delight for the eye. The cheesecake though, was not grasping its full potential. But the two others treated our desert hunger with sweet flavours.

Nice curb appeal and shade in the summer. Music was appropriately relaxing but food and service failed on all accounts. The beef burger was very fatty and the seafood salad was grisly raw. Beer was cold and service avoided eye contact. Not recommended.

Lovely setting, away from the busy Dubrovnik crowds outside of the old town lies this terraced gem. The menu is very reasonable - we got coffee/ fresh juice/ bread and an omelette all for around 70kn each. Staff weren’t massively friendly but all in all a nice place for breakfast!

The restaurant ambience is great and it feels lovely and relaxing if you’re seated upstairs. Service was also good throughout the meal. I had a lobster risotto to start which was great but the rib eye that followed was unlike any rib eye I’ve ever had and I was disappointed. However to someone else it might be fine or chose something else.

My husband scoped out this restaurant which is located outside the old town about 150 metres up from the information centre. He wanted a perfect location, fine dining and gluten free for my birthday. This restaurant exceeded all expectations. The staff were courteous and friendly and very knowledgeable about wines to match meals. Almost every dish was gluten free and they provided home made gf bread for my husband as well. The ambience of the venue was beautiful- away from the hustle and bustle of the old town and set amongst grapevines which provided shade on a hot afternoon. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a dining experience in Dubrovnik to remember.
