this was recommended as the number 1 restaurant in cavtat. We were picked up for free by the hotel and taken back. We arrived about 8pm and greeted by a friendly waiter, there was only another two couples there. The food was very good and the staff were very attentative, allowing time between each course. This restaurant is away from the main centre of cavtat and is set back in the hill just outside. Unfortunately there is no view to speak of except the airport which is opposite, however, was far enough away so the noise of the planes did not really impede on the evening. In fact if you are like me and are fascinated by planes , it was quite nice watching them take off and land. In all the food was of good quality, the only disappointing drawback perhaps was the lack of ambience and lack of a view

If you want an extraordinary food experience I would recommend you try Restaurant Major. The food and service is great and on our 12 day trip to Croatia this is the most memorable restaurant experience. Its located a bit outside Cavtat, but the restaurant has a shuttle bus that picks you up at the bus station in Cavtat and brings you back for free. The staff was super nice and even though the restaurant has a view to the airport its quiet and beautiful there.

A must try if you are in Cavtat.

PS: the prices are good.

After reading the reviews this was high up on the list of things to do . We went to the Ancora bar to book , and although they did it was not done with great enthusiasm and we later found out they are no longer affiliated to the Hotel .
The service with regards to being picked up and took back was great but the meal left us wanting . The Carrot soup with olive oil was very tasty , the veal was too salty and sauce very thin and broth like .Husbands lamb wasnt very tasty and apart from what it was rolled up in had no vegetables .
Atmosphere was subdued maybe due to only being six customers , service a tad slow and was no better than restaurants in Cavtat .And overpriced .

Restaurant Major, Cavtat region, near Dubrovnik, Croatia. Our hotel, in the centre of Cavtat, messed up our reservation for what we hoped would be a memorable gastronomic evening n their exclusive restaurant. So... we googled "N° 1 restaurant in Cavtat" in Trip Advisor and the Restaurant Major was, unreservedly, right up there at the top (literally!). This is not a restaurant that is within walking distance from the main tourist centre of Cavtat but they will send a driver (free of charge) to pick you up (and drop you off after your meal) and it is well worth the detour. My daughter and I had a fabulous meal, worthy of some of the best restaurants that we are used to eating in in Brussels, where we live. The menu is not extensive but each course offers something for all tastes. For starters, I had the Scallops with lemon orzo, celery mayonnaise and dried Croatian chorizo - to die for. My daughter chose the much-acclaimed carrot soup infused with olive oil from Konavle and loved it. Our main meals consisted of a perfectly cooked Filet Pur with green pepper sauce and (for me) the baked veal shank with mustard sauce and potatoes baked in goose fat; seriously delicious. We were unable to finish our plates and, sadly, had to forgo dessert. The coffee was the best we've tasted since we've been here. No, the restaurant is certainly not close to the main tourist centre of Cavtat but on the other hand, you can't go wrong. This is our second visit to Cavtat and we have been - and are being - charmed by everything we discover from restaurants to shops to friendly people. While it is true that the majority of the restaurants in the town (with a few exceptions, namely Restaurant Dalmacija and Dalmatino) are mediocre, the restaurant Major has added a star to an already four-star holiday destination. Don't miss it! Happily, we still have ten days here and will certainly return to Restaurant Major! P.S. The "view of the airport" is more of a plus than a disadvantage - who would have thought that the close proximity of an airport could be a unique - and not at all disturbing - distraction while dining? No noise from airport; charming, multilingual staff, top quality food and wine, reasonable prices and "door to door" chauffeur service. Unmissable!! Photos will follow shortly.
