We accidently stumbled upton the Balkan Express Grill on New Year's night. We were looking for something quick to eat before we set off for the street party. We ended up staying for 3 hours and calling the rest of our group to come over and enjoy it. They had a special menu for the night in addition to their regular menu. The old man was so cute and friendly, and suggested an amazing wine. The food was delicious! I had trouble finishing mine because it was just so much, But tried my best to eat as much as I could. I wish I could have had the rest packed to take with me. The prices were so much more reasonable than the other places that we had had a look at. Can't wait to go back to Dubrovnik and eat there again!!

This restaurant is just off the busy Stradun main pedestrianised street on Petilovijenci. There is seating inside and outside. The service was very efficient and the staff were friendly. We had cevapi, flat bread, ajvar(roasted red pepper and aubergine sauce) chopped onion and kajmak which is an eastern european soft creamy cheese. We had a beer each to wash this down. The food was well presented and full of flavour. The food was excellent value for money considering this restaurant is in the Old Town. We paid 135Kn approx £14. Although the beer is expensive compared to places further away from the city centre as we had paid 18Kn for a large beer the night before in a Lapad restaurant and here the same size was 30Kn. I would definitely go here if visiting Dubrovnik again as the food was worth the visit.

first day of arrival and we decided to dine here just off the Stradun. We opted for the mixed grill plate for two. It was huge with various sausages, chicken wrapped in proscuitto, rissoles with cheese, grilled chicken and fried eggplant and capsicum and topped off with a capsicum relish. The side bread was tasty . We were lucky enough to get a complimentary cherry liquer also.
No need for dinner tonight! good service also.

This little hole-in-the-wall alley place, just off the Stradun near the Cathedral end, has excellent food and very good service. (As at many places, if you are nice to them, they'll be nice to you.) We had outstanding scoop-shaped fries to go with our cevapcici, and we bravely ordered a "salad" of Ajvar mixed with soft cheese; it has a name that starts with "U"-something. It was terrific. All in all, probably the most delightful lunch of our three weeks in Croatia.
