The Best Dubrovnik Restaurants
by Saron Lease 3rd June 2022
Dubrovnik restaurants are beginning to offer the culinary quality and variety that should be expected of such a luxury destination.
Restaurant 360 Dubrovnik, led by the executive chef – Marijo Curić and restaurant manager – Rudolf Papac was awarded a Michelin star again this year 2021-2022
Marijo Curić, born and raised in Dubrovnik, began to work in a kitchen at 17. After earning a diploma at the culinary school, he continued by working with great chefs: Claude Bosi, Brett Graham, Philip Howard, Yu Sugimota, Marcus Wereing, Enrico Bartolini.
His concept is based on adapting favourite dishes of Dalmatia and Dubrovnik to a very modern cooking based on old French school. Each dish by Marijo Curić is creative and skilful play of contrasts and textures, with at least one local segment accentuated.
Service is coordinated by restaurant manager and Head Sommelier Rudolf Papac who is responsible also for the wine list – awarded by Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. This extensive Wine list contains more than 450 labels, 70 wines by-the-glass and an exquisite collection of top world wines is represented by the Croatian indigenous varieties that have a priority in the food and wine parings on the tasting menu.
The Commitment, knowledge and passion of the sommeliers and servers will make your dining experience here a memorable one. Reopening in April.
Included in the Michelin Guide – nothing too fancy but great quality local dishes, sometimes with a contemporary twist, always a warm welcome and great atmosphere. Good food at reasonable prices.
Serving up Mediterranean/ Asian Fusion cuisine, Restaurant Azur is a taste of the exotic, mixing delicious, fresh, high quality local produce with Asian expertise, at reasonable prices. Restaurant Azur, is located in a hidden corner of Dubrovnik Old Town near to the magical Buza Bar.
Nautika Restaurant lies on the very edge of the sea at Pile, alongside the western entrance to Dubrovnik’s Old Town and from its unique terraces, diners can enjoy a truly ‘one of a kind’ view of the Adriatic and the fortresses of Lovrijenac and Bokar. The restaurant’s chef, Mario Bunda, leads a team whose varied offerings include lobster from the Dalmatian island of Vis and delicacies from the local waters of the Adriatic.
Fish restaurant Proto
Restaurant Proto, with it’s elegant interior, is situated in the heart of the Old Town and is well known for it’s top seafood menu. Fish specialties, as well as popular meat dishes, all carefully selected with ingredients prepared by the best Dubrovnik chefs, are served on the summer terrace. This is probably the most well known and long standing fish restaurants in Dubrovnik.
Restaurant Gradska Kavana Arsenal
Visit the restaurant to experience the atmosphere of the Mediterranean meal, which their cooks will prepare for you from selected fresh local ingredients, raising the game of tried and tested age-old recipes by applying modern culinary techniques.
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 who wanted to start a traditional restaurant with an innovative take. Its fresh menu of traditional Croatian and Mediterranean fare seeks to get away from the usual tourist offering and instead show the best of Croatian ingredients and cooking. Using traditional recipes of the Dubrovnik area, they do this with flare and elegance. Prices are reasonable and the location is stunning.
High end restaurant for those in the know, this is a gorgeous place to spend an evening with delicious food and ambiance. 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 but this cooking is quite different from the sort of Dalmatian, Mediterranean fare you will experience elsewhere!
