Don't walk past this gem. The setting at the bottom of the Jesuit Stairs is delightful and a great spot to people watch. The service is fast and friendly and the food is delicious. Probably the best meal we had while in Dubrovnik, certainly a joint first but I do think the best. The house wine was perfectly good and... More

Good selection on the menu for all tastes, including gluten free. Vegetarian Moussaka was delicious. Service was relaxed and prices reasonable for Dubrovnik :-)

After wandering around the old town, this was a pleasant spot to have a break. Sat inside and were served very quickly. Coffee and cakes were delicious. Staffer were pleasant. Being able to use their wifi was a bonus.

The very nice cafe right next to the Shame Steps (for GoT fans) was a lovely place to stop by for a late lunch. The lasagne was delicious, the wine lovely, and the service attentive and friendly. They even had fleece blankets on offer to wrap up in when the sun went down and the temperature dropped. Highly recommended.

We made the mistake of eating dinner here one evening, a very poor choice considering all of the excellent restaurants in the old town to choose from. Poor quality food, very small portions and quite expensive. Waitress was very nice though a little disorganised. Ignore the smooth taking patter of the guy on the door and move on...

We had lunch here on our first day in Dubrovnik. There was a good variety of dishes and it was reasonably priced.

Wish we had checked other reviews before we ate here. The waitress was lovely if a little forgetful and apologised a lot. Not a lot of compensation though for cold lasagne and French fries which weren't really French fries and a side salad that arrived after we had finished. Such a shame that this is one of our memories of... More

Beware of additions to the bill that you haven't ordered, our bill should have been 305 kuna but they tried to charge us 415 kuna by adding an additional beer, charging more than the menu price for my salad and showing items together on the menu which were actually charged for separately. Wish we had read the reviews before we... More
