“Top Restaurant - Knowledgeable and Gracious Host/Owner”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We selected three restaurants from TA to visit - all three were great --- Otto was the best! The reviews talk about the Onion Soup and Chocolate Souffle - believe them and order! In addition we had the steak (rump) with pasta, Sea Bass, and the chicken - we all thought we had the best. Ante Vlasic (Otto), the owner and greeter/waiter/proprieter was charming and provided great recommendations. His background with hotel management throughout the world well suited him for the task. The restaurant had just been updated and it is hard to beleive that it was a boat house at one time. A well done to Chef Branko Kusovac for great taste and presentations! Make reservations as when the cruise liners come it it is reportedly overwhelmed. If you visit at a slack period you may see Otto's fiance doing the books at the front of the restaurant - a family touch!

“Excellent service and nice presented tasty food”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Nice little restaurant. Service was outstanding. Food was prepared with love and tasted superb. It was also something for your eyes to enjoy. We had white fish fillet with leek and chicken fillet with hommus. Both very good.

“The best meal we had in Dubrovnik”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Lovely food - I highly recommend the onion soup, superb! Chicken was lovely and very moist, followed by the chocolate fondant - gorgeous! Very friendly owner and enjoyed our visit. Wished we had visited again during our stay.

“Delicous!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

The food, service, and ambiance were all first rate. The pepper steak was wonderful and I'm still dreaming of the onion soup and chocolate fondant 6 months later - they were both sooo delicious!!!

“Perfect”
Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

After we had dinner n the Old Town the night before where food was expensive and not great we decided to find a highly rated restaurant near were we were saying. It was great choice as we were there outside season it was quiet for Saturday evening, our waitress/barmaid was very friendly and cute. My partner had onion soup served in a bowl with bread cover made up on top - wow, and both our mains were tasty and filling. We would come back for lunch next day but they are closed on Sundays :-)
