A unique place in the Old City to taste fresh oysters grown at the oyster farm in nearby Mali Ston Bay. This bay is the last place where the "Queen of oysters" (Ostrea edulis) still grows.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

You really can't go wrong at this restaurant. I ate there on a cold, rainy spring evening in April with my two boys (2 and 5) and my parents (in their 60s). We decided to check it out based on a recommendation from a friend only if it was worth passing over our favorite Dubrovnik restaurant Kamenice, and it totally was. The oysters are perfectly fresh, the sushi is outstanding, and the service is first-rate. Even the wine list is spectacular. Our waiter Tonchi let us sample a local white wine before investing in the bottle and recommended the amberjack because it was a fresh catch. It was worth taking his word for it, because the wine and the food were delightful. And Tonchi kept surprising us with teriyaki chicken for our boys and a raisin wine degustation as a thank-you for our business. We were deeply impressed with the food, the service, and the way they accommodated our party with kids. I'll be back!

“You can actually eat well in dubrovnik”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

I arrived in Dubrovnik with low expectations about food, due to friends' experiences. Bota surprised me for the quality of sushi and seafood. Great food and very friendly atmosphere. Go there if you look for quality!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We were in Dubrovnik last July, however just found the time to write some reviews. The oysters and sushi in this restaurant are amazing. Beautifully fresh, Croatian oysters, some of the best I have ever had. The sushi was amazing too, beautifully executed. Our waiter Branimir deserves a mention too, he really looked after us, excellent customer service.

“Nae Bota!”
Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

We stopped in here for dinner after seeing it tucked away and hearing nice things about it. So glad we did. The sushi was as good as any I have tasted in Japan! Crispy spring rolls were brilliant and the tuna melted in your mouth. The waiter was really good and was full of good chat. This place is a must for sushi lovers!!

“Good service, good oysters”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

I stopped by for Ston oysters, realized they didn't take credit card and thought I wouldn't have enough cash. Looking at the menu I had just enough for a few oysters. The host was thoroughly accommodating and the oysters were well prepared, you'll want lots of them.
