Restaurant details
Good for: Local cuisine
Dining options: After-hours, Breakfast, Delivery, Outdoor Seating, Reservations
Description: Dubrovnik's new gem where diners enjoy a beautiful fusion of Dalmatian and Japanese cuisine. A unique place in the Old City to taste fresh oysters grown at the oyster farm in nearby Mali Ston Bay. This bay is the last place where the "Queen of oysters" (Ostrea edulis) still grows. The Oyster & Sushi Bar Bota is located in the charming, small alley by the Cathedral.

I came here on a sunday lunch and was surprised to see the restaurant practically empty. I was really tempted to go away but at last decided to give it a try. The sushi is really good and price, very strange for this area of Dubrovnik, is honest. The only pity, as said, by someone else before, is the staff. The waiter is definitly not welcoming at all, it really seems you are there to bother him.

We ended up eating at Bota twice in a three night stay, located on quiet street overlooking the steps behind the cathedral. The sushi is so fresh, and such a change from the usual Dubrovnik fare. My father enjoyed the oysters, we loved the local home made honey liqueur and the twinkle in handsome Branimir's eye as he chatted to us made it a must visit spot! Full marks!

We really enjoyed the raw oysters. Coming from LOUISIANA we weren't sure but were pleasantly surprised.
Sweet and salty as "Tony" suggested they would be
Sushi was a nice treat as well.
Finally try the Marko Polo white wine.

Great place just off the first exit of the city walls. Make sure to have the Special Bota Roll with the quail egg on top delicious! And if you get Tony as your server he is awesome too! Also order the Tiger Roll we went back twice to this place!!

Peculiar, you might think, that we ate at ai sushi on our first night in Dubrovnik, but when on the sea, eat seafood. This highly recommended restaurant did not disappoint.
Bota uses seafood from the Adriatic for the delicious dishes you will enjoy here. According to our helpful waiter, Branimir, only the salmon is not local! We strongly suggest the Mali Ston oysters, shrimp rolls and amberjack carpaccio, washed down with a bottle of Posip, a local white wine.
A word about the location: it can be difficult to find and we saw no signage. In the old town, walk to the clock tower end of the main street, turn right and go past the cathedral and up the nearby stone steps. At the top, look left and you'll see the few wicker tables and chairs that identify Bota's outdoor seating. On a Wednesday evening in October, we had no reservations and were seated immediately. Thanks, Branimir, for your patient explanations and for introducing us to medica!
