“Very pleasant and a smiley waitress too... quite rare in Dubrovnik”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We had read reviews on TA for this bistro and we were happy to try when we saw the location. As others have clearly stated, the bistro is on the main street (Stradun) in a world heritage location, so the prices are a little more than some places, but not dramatically, but we knew before we ventured in, and the prices are also clearly available, so I don't think anyone has good reason to moan on that score, if you're on a tight budget, then avoid.... simples!
We tried the iced coffees one warm afternoon and they were yummy, so we decided to try breakfast the next day which was also yummy.... apart from the oranges they were more like lemons.... not yummy, but the rest of the breakfast was fresh, tasty and enjoyable.
The reference to the waitress is just that we noticed that in many establishments we visited and also our hotel, that whilst the staff were all polite and efficient, there weren't many smiley people, and the girl here stood out who was single handedly waiting on about a dozen tables and working extremely hard, but was still managing to stay very cheerful...... a round of applause for the smiley girl please.....
Overall, a pleasant place to enjoy a drink or snack, watch the world walk by and relax for a while

“Location, Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

As earlier reviews it is all in the location, people watching but at a small premium on prices. Ideal for a snack and leisurely drink - comfortable chairs, slick service and a menu geared towards passing trade. Where better to spend an hour resting and watching the footfall on the amazing marble main street of old Dubrovnik. Nothing really special about the food etc but nothing to fault it and everything is tasty. A average tourist spot, comfortable and clean raised above the average by its location.

“We ate here most mornings!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

I was visiting Dubrovnik for the second time and spending a little over a week there. My first trip there, I ate at Cafe Orlando a few times, and it was always delicious. So I knew exactly where to take my mom for breakfast when she accompanied me on my second trip! We ate there almost every day, to the point that the staff knew and recognized us!

The staff are friendly and efficient, and the food excellent. They have a wonderful breakfast with eggs, proscut and cheese, fresh fruit, an assortment of bread (croissant, baguette, etc), and fresh squeezed orange juice. Normally we would order one breakfast and split it between the two of us.

The staff go out of their way to make sure your food and experience are good. On our last day, we were planning on walking the wall surrounding the city and ate there first. At the end of our breakfast, we had a little bit of bread and proscut and cheese left, so they offered to bag it up for us. When we opened it later, they had made a whole new sandwich complete with lettuce and tomato! Wonderful food, wonderful service, wonderful people!!

“Super bruschetta and sandwich. Great for people watching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Prominently situated on the Stradun, the Old Town's main street, Cafe Orlando is right in the midst of what Dubrovnik is about. Surrounded by some of the main architectural attractions of the town and just perfect for watching the world go by, Orlando also offers some really tasty snacks as well as great coffee and drinks. Service was really good too, much better that it's competitor cafe close by.

“Lovely café-bistro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

This year was the 5th time we visited Dubrovnik. We love this beautiful city and its nice people.
But our vacations would be incomplete without a visit of Café-Bistro ORLANDO. You find us there every night watching the world strolling on vibrant Stradun and enjoying drinks served by Alan and his mother. Very, very nice people, who became almost like family after all these years.
When visiting Dubrovnik a visit to Café-Bistro ORLANDO is a MUST!
