What our guests say
The food was excellent and the staff very professional. We had amazing Croatian wine and seafood. The setting, on a terrace by the sea is great for a meal with friend or for a romantic dinner. seating directly on the water makes it the perfect location for an outside seating lunch or dinner, away from the buzzing Dubrovnik. Highly recommended.

Outdoor seating by the water with a stunning view and delicious food.. It’s not in the center of Dubrovnik, or the Old Town, but that is exactly what makes this place special and unique. Food didn’t disappoint us at all since we came here for their black risotto, which i recently read it’s their awarded dish among st Europe’s restaurants. Creamy and flavorful. I loved it!

What a fabulous spot for lunch with tables right by the water overlooking the secluded bay in Zaton. On a whim, having seen a short recommendation in our guide book, we braved two local buses to find this restaurant.
