This is not the cheapest restaurant in Dubrovnik, & it's not local to the Old Town, overlooking the new harbour at Gruz, but it is definately worth the effort to find. The restaurant is only small, accomodating maybe 20 to 25 diners, however this helps to make the atmosphere, but it is probably advisable to try & make a reservation.
The staff are friendly & efficient, & the food is of good quality & different, & just as important, at about the right portion sizes. We didn't walk away feeling we could have ate more.
Everybody recommends the onion soup as a starter, & it is very good. There are about 6 main courses to choose from, & the chicken with humus & tuna we chose were excellent. The chocolate fondant was superb, so my wife tells me.
A 3 course meal runs at between 20 & 25 Euros.

We ate in this restaurant twice on a recent trip to Dubrovnik. It's well worth a visit. The menu is relatively small, but this doesn't limit the flavours on offer and the range is interesting. The wine list is excellent and the service is very, very good. The restaurant is busy and can be booked out - so it's worth booking in advance.

We found this restaurant on the bay overlooking the new harbour at Gruz thanks to Tripadvisor. Depending on where you are staying you may need a bus to get here as it is outside the old town area.
We had no reservation but the waiter was very pleasant and asked us to wait by the bar and after about 10 minutes of waiting we got a table in a pleasant terrace area.
The menu while short has a mix of very interesting dishes. For starters, i enjoyed the mushroom/porcini risotto which was delicious followed by chicken on hummus and celery sticks...it sounds strange but was really tasty. We thought it very good value for the area and with very pleasant service we had a very enjoyable meal.
Best to reserve a table.

On the second day in Dubrovnik we realized that we needed to base our choice of restaurants on previous visitors reviews. Otto Tavern had a long list of positive reviews and was close to our hotel. Lucky for us they opened at 12:00 and the lunch was very delicious - not only were the ingredients of good quality but the service and the composition was as well. We did not order anything complicated, but it was just a good meal with obvious effort and skill put into it.

Given recent reviews we knew we would be lucky to grab a Saturday night table having not reserved, however we gave it a go at 7pm and were extremely lucky in all respects! The attentive service was charming and added significantly to making for a very enjoyable eating experience. The menu is limited but varied enough to cater for most tastes, the atmosphere is friendly relaxed and conducive to a great night out. And that was what we had, superb food and wine, including the best chocolate fondant my wife has ever tasted all added up to a memorable occasion.
