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 and a 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.
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 cozy, 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!
