We ordered a pork steak and a tuna steak. The tuna was also on a daily fresh menu, which was 10 kunas more expensive than the menus tuna steak. I took it. After the dinner I dont want to know how old the basic menus tuna steak is. At first, there was a pidgeon feather on my plate. They changed the potatoes where the feather was. After that I found that the tuna was more than well done, even though I wanted medium +. That term was something that the waiter or the chef did not understand. And about the freshness. I have had many portions of tuna and this was many days old. Gotta love the additude to cashier 10 kunas more for "fresh" fish. Wine and the pork was average. When I complained about the dish the waiter ignored everything and blaimed my order. When we got lured in the restaurant lobbyist said that you wont be dissapointed or we shoot the chef...

We had (us, a young couple) just arrived in old town for our first evening in Dubrovnik. We strolled through the streets in search for a nice restaurant, but what we got was better than expected. While all the other head waiters in other restaurant were a bit pushy, immediately chatting you up when looking at the menus, at Pupo the atmosphere was more welcoming and friendly. We were seated and instantly cared for. We ordered a fish dish, which was nice. It was fresh, pure (not spiced too much), accompanied by a lovely Croatian wine. Our waiter was very knowledgable about the served wines, and did a perfect job. We thought we were in a very classy restaurant. Execution was nearly perfect. Overall very, very pleasant experience. Would recommend everyone!

Waited 20 minutes after sitting down and never got to order. Indicated 3 times to a waiter that we were ready to order but never came to our table. Had to leave so can't review the food

No service at all. At first they ignored us for 10 minutes and when we got up from the table and on our way to leave they came.
We order to cheese toast and it took over 20 minute before we got the food. Then it took 5 minutes before we got a knife and a fork too eat the food with.
It was max 10 other guest at the time and some of them came after us and got service before us. Food was ok. Won't come back.

We came here on our first night, because the restaurants we had chosen were full (best places need booking at this time of year).

Service was efficient and friendly, but the food was very average, for instance my mussels were small and had not been bearded (unfortunately it seems typical of the area). It's not bad, but as noted by others, you can eat better within a stone's throw.
