“Octopus burger - stunning”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

The star of menu of this restaurant is octopus burger. It is really really great. Must try while in Dubrovnik. The eatery is on a very nice street, and you can sit on the stairs of the street itself. Very pleasant old town experience. Defenitely recommended.

“Great little restaurant!”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 via mobile

It was so nice to wander into Barba! The owner is friendly and the food is excellent and you can tell it's fresh. It was a nice change from the heavy pasta and pizza that is served at every other restaurant throughout the city. We enjoyed it so much that we went twice during our short visit to Dubrovnik.

“Wonderful find”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 via mobile

Found Barba on TripAdvisor and it is a gem of a place. The weather was due to thunderstorm after some immense sunshine and it certainly did, about half an hour before our planned visit! We stuck with it though, and arrived soaked but to a wonderful welcome and very quickly-served octopus burgers. They were phenomenal, along with the fried prawns which were simply devine. For a lunch stop, this is unrivalled; inexpensive and so tasty. Best lunch of our visit to Dubrovnik.

“Try it”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 via mobile

Nice place to try sth different when you get tired of traditional cuisine. It's nothing special, but sweet, I would recommend it.

“The best octopus burger I've ever had!!”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 via mobile

And to be honest the only octopus burger I've ever had!!

However, great simple food, served by exceptionally pleasant staff at a fantastic price all add up to a great meal.

Well worth hunting out and as other reviewers have said it's a million times better than the pizza restaurants which seem to saturate Dubrovnik.

If it's busy inside then ask for a seat pad and sit on the steps outside.
