“Lousy sandwiches but good coffee”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Sat here for coffee and some sandwiches. Coffee was excellent and service pretty friendly, even though veeeery slow. But after waiting for 30 minutes and getting a "hot sandwhich" with only cold salad, eggs and canned aspargus on top a dry and cold bun would not exactly recommend the place...

“Good for breakfast or a main meal.”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

We first ate here when we wanted breakfast with a view
[ opposite the Cathedral]. The continental brekfast we had was good value for money. We had a main meal here too. The staff were so friendly. I wanted a glass of water and they brought iced tap water and continued to bring us fresh glasses of water throughout the meal.
The food was excellent. My husbands pasta dish was massive and my fish with vegetables relly well cooked and tastey.
We would not hesitate to recommend eating here. It has a good view outside and lovely aircon. inside so along with the lovely staff and modest prices it is a good choice.

“Good spot in Old city”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

We stopped here for a quick bit to eat while touring the old city. I had a calamari appetizer and a soda. Service was a bit slow by American standard but the waiter was pleasant. Also tried the ice cream...it was ok. They did have free wi-fi so we were able to communicate back to the States.

“Great for People Watching”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

The location can't be beat - right on the Stradun by the cathedral. Watching the tour groups go by is an entertainment in itself, especially when the cruise ships are in! Our last moring in Dubrovnik coincided with a visit from a Japanese prince - watching him and his entourage go past just yards away was interesting!

We stopped by three times in all, twice for breakfast. Service is a little slow, especially when the café is full, but you can spend your time people watching. After all, you aren't on vacation to rush around, are you? ;0) One time, a klapa group was performing nearby, and a classical trio on another.

Food was very good; we had a variety of egg dishes. The omelette with prsut is excellent. The white coffee was very good and this was the only place in Croatia I found that served decaf! Prices are a little high, but you are paying for a meal AND a show...!

“Friendly staff and great for people watching!”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 via mobile

We originally visited Dubrava for just a drink one afternoon. The waitress was friendly and very polite. Its a great place to sit a people watch and this day in particular there were two weddings taking place, so we saw the wedding party having all their photos taken which was lovely. We went back to Dubrava the following day and had a cocktail each. They were 65 kuna a piece but they were very nice so we would say they are worth it. We were enjoying the atmosphere so decided to stay for dinner. I had a smoked salmon pasta dish which I thoroughly enjoyed and the price was very reasonable. Unlike other restuarants we had been to which just give you bread without asking and then charge you for it, we were asked if we would like some so actually had the opportunity to say no. Having had our mains we decided to have dessert and the same waitress from the previous evening was really helpful when we asked what certain dishes contained. We opted for the Dubrovnik cube which was a delicious cake with apple,walnuts and chocolate. We would visit Dubrava again in a heart beat
