“Great meal at the top of the steps”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Nina from our sobe, recommended this restaurant. It is up the so-called "Spanish Steps of Dubrovnik" across the piazza from the one church. As it was cool that night, we ate inside which has a nice décor. My husband had the octopus salad which was very good and monk fish medallions wrapped in bacon. I had a shrimp pasta with truffle cream which was excellent. Tried one of the local Croatian beers. We enjoyed our week in Croatia but found that even their white wines we tried were drier than we like, but the beer was always good!

“Lovely location and decor, exemplary pasta”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Restaurant Kopun was recommended to me by a local working at the city port. It did not disappoint.

The restaurant is in a gorgeous location on the corner of the Old City, near St. Ignatius Church. The place has an outdoor terrace and a very classy interior.

I ordered the pasta appetizer (which was big and delicious enough to have been a main) along with the grilled fish of the day (seabass on this occasion). The food is typical of the best of Dalmatian cooking, which eschews heavy sauces and instead uses olive oil and garlic to bring out the flavour of the invariably high quality ingredients. I was also brought a generous basket of bread to accompany the meal, and unlike many restaurants in popular tourist destinations, this is FREE of charge.

In general my visit to Dubrovnik was probably my best culinary holiday to date. However even amongst the numerous gems I found in the Old City, I would still highly recommend that any visitors to Dubrovnik make some time for Restaurant Kopun in particular.

“Delicious and scenic too!”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

We ate here to celebrate my wife's birthday and it was absolutely lovely. The food is great and the location on a beautiful square is stunning. The staff were very attentive too. All in all a great place for authentic Croatian food amongst all the pizzerias in Dubrovnik.

“Really great food”
Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

We opted for the lunch special which was 3 courses. Prawns and young cheese entree really was something special and then the scampi pasta with truffle sauce blew us away. The Rozata dessert was also spectacular but I was so jealous of a friends choc cake i had to order one too!!
We were there before the season was underway so not sure how it would be under pressure. Couldn't fault the food or service. Prices not bad considering what you can pay in this area. Well worth what we paid.
