Dubrovnik's 3 Most Delicious Restaurants
For the second of my three-part Insider’s Guide, I’ve collected my three favourite Dubrovnik restaurants and cafés that nicely round out the city’s cultural offerings. Of course, the city has more than three great restaurants, and I’m always happy to hear new suggestions should you stumble upon any gems!
My 3 Favourite Dubrovnik Restaurants
Pictured above, the 120-year-old restaurant formerly known as Proto offers great seafood and service on their roof-top terrace. Situated in a superb location overlooking the old wall and harbor, it boasts the most romantic views of the city, hands-down. (Though it’s worth noting that not all tables overlook the old wall.) Offering nouveau cuisine, the highly artistic plates are works of art, if not all that filling.
Café Festival Stradun
Reputed to have the best cakes in town, this is a great café overlooking the main pedestrian street. A great spot for breakfast, any time and a good place to sit and people watch.
Housed within the Villa Orsula hotel, executive chef Thierry Caruel’s signature dish – herb breaded lamb chops with courgettes, Provencal cannelloni, garlic comfit and black olive tapenade – is more than worth the 10-minute walk from the old town, as is the great view offered by the restaurant’s terrace, which you can catch a glimpse of below.
