It looked pretty, with it's balcony and had lots of outside seating on a wide pavement,... More

This tavern, so different from most in Dubrovnik, offering dishes made with heart, smile and love for what they offer. Interior also combined with style. Prices very reasonable for the package. Worth visoting and I recomend it every time I have a chance. Just keep the good work, guys!

We loved the look of this place with all of the foliage and booked a table for the terrace early evening - the problem with that was the mosquitos! Such a shame as it is a lovely location slightly out of the old town. Staff were a bit brusque, seemed to want to push a certain wine on us. Food... More

Wanted something to eat and sat outside downstairs the staff where quite ignorant. We where asking for a menu and they said its on the wall. Eventually we heard another customer say the restaurant was upstairs. The waiter in the restaurant was a pleasure. The food was a treat but portions small.

The cafe downstairs is a little off putting until you are shown the restaurant up on the terrace. Our waiter who learned English in Canada was very attentive and chatty. If you like meat this is the place to eat, the lamb 3 cuts is a plate full of meat, the beef also. You need to order sides to complete... More

We found Sesame via TripAdvisor and decided to try it out. It's just a short walk outside the Pile Gate near the Hilton hotel. After a bit of confusion by going to the bar downstairs we got seated on the upstairs "porch" and found a fantastic waiter taking care of us. The menu was seafood-focused and we chose a soup...
