“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

Dinner at Konoba Dubrava was outstanding. We ordered mixed meat under the iron bell and would recommend it to all. Note that you have to order in advance to get an "under the iron bell" dish. This meal was one of the best and should not be missed on any trip to Dubrovnik. Also note that the best way to get there is by taxi.

“Absolutely Amazing - a must go to in Dubrovnik!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

This is one of the most Amazing restaurants I have eaten at. We first came across it after seeing a sign for 'local food' at the top of the cable car. As other people have said the 10 minute walk from the cable car advertised, is a little optimistic, it is more like 25-35 minutes. However, it is all down hill and the views on route are spectacular. We enjoyed the place so much on our first visit we booked to come again a few days later! Essentially this restaurant is a meat lovers paradise, all cooked under the bell or on the charcoal grill. On our first visit we opted for a mixed meat grill for the table and every piece of meat was cooked to perfection. Absolutely delicious and succulent. The next visit we pre-ordered the lamb. An absolute dream..... :) The staff were all so lovely and accommodating, and great at offering suggestions for what to try. They are also more than happy to show you the 'kitchen' and how all the good is cooked. If in Dubrovnik I urge you to visit this place. It is really easy to get to. Either walk down from the cable car, get the 17 bus direct from Pile Gate to Bosanka, or splash out on a taxi :) We did a mix of all three over our visits. I cannot recommend highly enough.....

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

During our two week stay in Dubrovnik we've been suggested this restaurant by the skipper of our boat. He is a local and also a foodie. He couldn't be more right. The restaurant was located a 20 minute walk from the cablecart ride at the top of the mountain. The sign says it's a 10 minute walk but in the dark it's longer, but downhill.. There were many local families in the restaurant. The hostess truely understands hospitallity. Very friendly and serviceminded. She suggested the steak Dubrava, it's like a bistecca Fiorentina but then traditionally prepared. One of the best, maybe the best steak we've ever had.

Dear guests,

thank you for kind words about your dinner at Konoba Dubrava. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed our steak Dubrava. Hopefully on your next visit you can try our specialities prepared under an iron bell which require an advance order of at least three hours.

It feels very rewarding to hear our guest were satisfied with their dining experience and with our team members.

We hope to welcome you back in near future. Safe travels in the meantime!

Kind regards,
Brigita Polanda

“I kept saying.... "pinch me, pinch me,I must be dreaming" !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

We went up on the cable car and admired the breath-taking views of Dubrovnik.

While up there we saw a sign for the Taverna Konoba Dubrava and decided to walk down the road to it for some authentic lunchtime cuisine rather than dine at the cable car restaurant..... which I'm sure would have also been nice ;0)

Off we set down the hill, we were feeling very happy and carefree, singing songs from the 'Sound of Music' admiring the view and taking photographs as we went.

We soon arrived at Bosanka a small village, that had seen a lot of bomb damage, the village had lost a lot of loved ones, in the tragic war that took place.
There was a war memorial to commemorate the loss of life from Bosanka.

We walked some more and were seriously beginning to think we were lost as we didn't think it was as far down,then suddenly there it was.... like a mirage.
But not a mirage but a very real Taverna...

We sat outside and ordered two large beers and were in heaven as we deliberated over the menu and what we should order..

We ordered Biftek Dubrava medium rare and could hardly wait.
What a brilliant last day, a cold beer, a wonderful atmosphere of happy dinners and birthday party revellers being serenaded by musicians..

The Biftek Dubrava soon arrived and it was the best.......
It melted in my mouth and was so tender and so flavoursome.
I kept saying to my husband "pinch me, pinch me, I must be dreaming"
What an amazing lunch, so happy we decided to go there.

While drinking our second beer, we seriously contemplated staying there all day. we worked out that we could order the lamb in a bell which required three hours notice. But we knew that wasn't an option that we had to get back and pack.

The staff at Taverna Konoba Dubrava were just so lovely (see pics).

We paid our bill, said our goodbyes and left to walk back up the hill to the cable car.

N:B We did actually start to walk down the hill thinking we could get on the road and walk back into Dubrovnik that way. But after about 30 minutes we realised to our horror, that we would be only able to walk into Dubrovnik on the busy motorway. So we had to turn round and walk back up the hill past the Taverna Konoba Dubrava again and on to the Cable Car.
Let's just say we were not singing songs from the sound of music on the way back :0(
