Beautiful location right next to the harbour. We ate here twice, once being our last night as it was so good and the kids were pestering us to go again! Nothing was too much trouble, our waiter was brilliant with the children, calling my 8 year son boss and giving him the bill, a lovely touch. The food was simply... More

We came across this place, by chance, whilst walking around Cavtat, and decided to eat here. The menu looked good, it was reasonably priced and the location, by the harbour, was lovely. Without exception, the four of us, really enjoyed the food which included main dishes of fresh sardines, mussels, sea bass and tuna. The waterside setting, where we sat... More

My husband had a starter, which he said was lovely, pasta and shrimps. As I was only having a main course I would have appreciated some bread while I was waiting. My fried chicken was good but came with fries and no veg, a little salad would have been nice! I realise it is the very end of the season... More

We took a day during our visit to Dubrovnik, to go up the coast via a boat and visit Cavtat. It's a beautiful little picturesque town. The main harbor and waterfront is lined with little restaurants and cafes. There are many huge yachts moored there. We took time to walk around the peninsula. The water is turquoise and crystal clear.... More

One of the best meals we've ever had. We started with a glass of the house red wine which was lovely and a real treat to try some local wine. We then had an oyster each which were beautifully fresh. We had a seafood platter for 2 which was exceptional and very good portion size. Finished with a coffee and... More

Spent a few nights walking past the restaurant Ivan to the main part of Cavtat, due to the sometimes so-so reviews. But on our last night it was pouring with rain so we thought we'd take a chance rather than venture further afield. Glad we did. Dinner was excellent. Green tagliatelle with shrimp, pork medallions with a beautiful fig sauce... More

Ate in this restaurant one evening. The reception was very nice the food was excellent. Once our mains were finished we were disappointed that the waiting staff lost interest. We were not asked if we wished anything else. the waiter only woke up when asked for the bill. A little disappointed.
