“Friendly staff, great atmosphere, good food”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Located by the docks where boats are busy giving rides to tourists, Poklisar provides a great atmosphere for outside dinning under enormous umbrellas in an open square. Four couples ate dinner here and enjoyed the friendly wait staff, the English menu, the passing scenery, and the delightful piano music. The meal began with a complimentary tuna pate served with warm bread. Most of us had the house specialty--a tomato-based fish soup which had a spicy kick to it. Potato soup was also available and was quite good. The pizza was tasty, and the penne pasta with fresh veggies was absolutely yummy. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The house wines were good and priced right. There was no hurry from the wait staff, so we lingered and enjoyed the evening.

“Great for people watching, average food”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The restaurant is situated in the harbour so has a lovely view and is perfectly situated for watching the world go by. You can either sit outside with a big choice of tables, inside or on a tiny terrace right next to the water (accessible through the inside). The menu is quite extensive although not very easy to follow as each individual menu item is described in several different languages (rather than having a separate page for each language. I had a pizza for lunch. It was pleasant but nothing more than that.

“A meal with a view”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We decided to eat here after a long days travel from Albania.

We sat facing the harbour, so watched the fishermen coming and going and the small tourist boats come and go. It was around 8p.m., so getting dark. Oh so peaceful AND, no mosquitoes - bliss.

The food was fantastic and very reasonably priced for the area.

I would recommend eating here and enjoying the views of the stunning harbour at leisure. The seafood risotto was yummy.

“Very good food and a lovely view”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

I had dinner here my last evening in Dubrovnik. I decided to go for the lamb and it was perfectly cooked. I came with potatoes and a lovely rosemary sauce. It was lovely to sit outside and look out at the harbour in the evening. Very nice.

“Very good restaurant in old port”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

Very good food in ambience of ancient city port. Very good jazz music played in live even for the lunch. Good service and affordable prices.
Choice of food is in range from local to Italian and even Far East cuisine.
If you are in Dubrovnik don't miss it.
