“Bad food in a non-charming environment”

Bistro San Francesco
Ranked #200 of 407 Restaurants in Dubrovnik
Cuisines: Italian, Croatian, Gastropub
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

We were very hungry and sought out San Francesco on the recommendation of our landlady. This was so disappointing my partner and I remained silent through the meal.
The tomato sauce didn't taste of anything, I had TWO mouthfuls (I kid you not) of shrimps (I ordered shrimps pasta!) which the owner himself (Francesco) assured me was normal. My partner left half of her sea food as it didn't taste nice. We are currently both in bed with severe nausea. Truly bad culinary experience.

Charming Italian owner, Italian chefs & staff, Italian music and most importantly - amazing authentic Italian food! Generous portions, great value for money, highly recommended!

This was the first restaurant we tried in the old town and it was disappointing.
I ordered the scampi with salad - they gave me boiled cabbage/lettuce with the prawns which they tried to pass off as salad. It was limp and soggy- they obviously had no fresh salad but didnt think letting me know and giving me another option.
the scampi were about 5 prawns sliced in half but it didtn taste of anything.

Exquisite Italian food, from pasta specialities to different variety of fish and meat.
The chef of the cuisine is Italian and comes from Bari.
The owner is Franco Francavilla, a native from Bari as well.
Enjoy the place in every respect, located in one of the historical streets in the old town, Vetraniceva no. 8.
