Description: Pantarul - feels like home. Our intention is for everyone to feel welcome and for each palate to be satisfied. A snack with a glass of local wine or a several-course dinner which will make all your senses flick? Top quality, yet unpretentious food - modern cuisine at its best. Our menu lives with the seasons and all the dishes are prepared using incredible local produce which is sourced by farmers from Dubrovnik's surroundings, especially from Zupa and Konavle. Fresh fish is delivered daily and the meat comes from the most reliable sources. Homemade pasta and bread, a creative wine list featuring Croatian wines and an honest smile on the waiters' faces - this is what we look for in a restaurant ourselves. Once you're done enjoying the meal, you can flip through the restaurant cookbook - a 320-page edition full of photos, stories and traditional Dubrovnik recipes.

We had a fabulous dinner, everything was perfect. It is essential to book but we had been warned about this so booked ahead. All staff are passionate about the restaurant. Anna has written a book which is superb! We bought it and will certainly use her recipes.
The home made bread is excellent but take care not to eat too much at the start as the portion sizes are generous and you may not have space for the delicious desserts!
Service is perfect and we can say that it is the best meal we have had in Dubrovnik and we have enjoyed some good ones over the week we have stayed here.
Highly recommended and we wish Ana and the team all the best with their new venture. We shall return....tomorrow in fact!!!

The food was so tasty and really interesting (we also had the duck; it was amazing). The wine was also lovely and such good value. We felt at home and couldn't have asked for better service. I really recommend booking in advance (we we're shocked at how many disappointed people had to be turned away on a weds) to avoid missing out on a lovely and great value meal.

I booked a table here weeks in advance due to the rave reviews. I'm sorry to say I was left underwhelmed. The service and presentation of each dish was impeccable. Maybe I made a bad choice with the squid polenta, but it left a strange taste in my mouth. The sea bass was bland, the tastiest thing on that plate was the tomato. My partner couldn't fault his meal but wasn't wowed by it either, it was just ok. Best food we had was Amfora in Lapad, highly recommend.

After a week in Croatia finally a restaurant that not only pushes boundaries but does not rely on what seems to be a generic menu of pizza, fried squid, crappy veg et al..A delightful menu that would do well in any of the world's great cities complemented by wonderful service and a clean fresh environment. It is actually no joke that you have to book 5 days in advance - The cocoa and orange ravioli with duck was inspired - yummy!
