A breath of fresh air in Dubrovnik’s old town, This restaurant is the concept of a family of Dubrovnik restaurateurs with decades of experience.

Restaurant Dubrovnik

High end restaurant for those in the know, this is a gorgeous place to spend an evening with delicious food and ambiance. Find it situated on the first floor terrace of a sumptuous old town villa, tucked away up a side street. The restaurant has a thoughtful and interesting menu with indulgent wines to match. Fairly expensive but recommended.

Restaurant Taj Mahal

East meets West at the Taj Mahal which specialises in cuisine from Bosnia & Hercegovina, a favourite with locals and visitors who discover it alike. Home made cooking in a cosy, old town street atmosphere is what it’s all about. However this cooking is quite different from the sort of Dalmatian, Mediterranean fare you will experience elsewhere!
