Restaurants in Dubrovnik
Being the tourist magnet that it is, Dubrovnik has plenty of restaurants, though one is more or less indistinguishable from the next. If you like seafood, grilled meat and pasta, you’ll be a happy diner here.
The restaurants below have been grouped into three different pricing categories:
Expensive (over 250 HRK)
Moderate (100 HRK to 250 HRK)
Cheap (up to 100 HRK)
These Dubrovnik restaurant prices are for a three-course meal for one, including half a bottle of house wine or equivalent, tax and service.
Stara LozaCuisine: Tapas
This beacon among Prijeko's run-of-the-mill tourist restaurants belongs to the equally classy Prijeko Palace hotel above. Chefs cook their food slowly here, with hours spent preparing incredibly succulent lamb shoulder, duck and suckling pig. Head upstairs to the tapas bar for lovely views of the Old Town and attentive waiting staff.Address: , Prijeko 22, Dubrovnik,
Telephone: +385 20 321 145.
Restaurant 360°Cuisine: Mediterranean
This elegant restaurant in a medieval arsenal comes with sublime views of the Old Port. Restaurant 360° is the place to sample top-class Mediterranean fare, especially through its tasting menu, which includes turbot and scallops along with richer options like venison that's been marinated for 24 hours. Reservations are essential.Address: , Svetog Dominika bb, Dubrovnik,
Telephone: +385 20 322 222.
ProtoCuisine: Seafood, Mediterranean
In business since 1886, Proto once served dinner to Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson, and the restaurant has made much of the royal connection ever since. Today, it generally matches the hype and its traditional fish and meat dishes are as good as any you'll find in Dubrovnik.Address: , Siroka 1, Dubrovnik,
Telephone: +385 20 323 234.
Lokanda PeskarijaCuisine: Seafood
In summer, the outside tables overlooking the old harbour make Lokanda Peskarija one of the most popular restaurants in Dubrovnik. In the cooler months it's still a favourite with locals. Diners can choose between eating in a candlelit dining room or on the romantic waterside terrace. The fried squid and mussels are both excellent and come served in attractive black pots.Address: , Na Ponti bb, Dubrovnik,
Telephone: +385 20 324 750.
Orhan is another of Dubrovnik's most renowned seafood eateries, with the outdoor terrace offering stunning views over the Old Town walls and the Lovrijenac Fortress. Dalmatian specialities dominate, and menus are dependent on the catch of the day. The covered terrace seats up to 90 diners, and it's worth booking ahead.Address: , Od Tabakarije 1, Dubrovnik,
Telephone: +385 20 411 918.
SesameCuisine: Mediterranean, Croatian
Sesame specialises in serving Mediterranean and Dubrovnik cuisine in atmospheric surroundings, offering dishes such as Dalmatian roast beef and gnocchi with truffles. The restaurant itself is set in a 200-year-old family home and is surrounded by citrus trees. As it's close to the university, it's a popular hangout for students.Address: , Dante Alighieria bb, Dubrovnik,
Telephone: +385 20 412 910.
Mea CulpaCuisine: Mediterranean
Managed by the same owners that look after Lokanda Peskarija, Mea Culpa offers an unfussy, inexpensive take on holiday grub, with pizzas and salads the main currency. Set in an alley among traditional stone houses, the restaurant has an outside terrace for up to 60 and the pizzas are big enough to share.Address: , Za Rokom 3, Dubrovnik,
Telephone: +385 20 323 430.
Oliva PizzeriaCuisine: Italian
There is nothing too extravagant about this place, just good quality Italian food at decent prices. Dubrovnik has an abundance of different pizza options but this is one of the best of the lot. Specialties here include the Gourmand, with mushrooms, peppers and bacon, and the Rocket with pesto sauce.Address: , Lučarica 5, Dubrovnik,
Telephone: +385 20 324 594.
Restaurants in Dubrovnik don't come cheaper and any more cheerful than this busy place. The name means 'oyster', and they're great value here, alongside the generous seafood risotto. The whitebait ('fried small fishes', as the menu has them) is another good option, especially washed down with the eminently affordable house wine.Address: , Gundulićeva Poljana 8, Dubrovnik,
