It's on a pretty square but that is all it has going for it. Very poor food. We ordered mussels. Over cooked by hours. So salty they were inedible. Came out cold. My husband ordered pasta with seafood. Very mediocre. Service was very poor. There was almost no one there but we had to call the waiter over to order... More

My wife's chicken was dry and very little taste, although when we mentioned it they did remove from the bill. Neither meal had much taste. I had the sea bass that was also dry with nothing to endear it.

Went on a quiet out of season night and was served excellent food with good unhurried service. Three course meal with local wine, sitting inside as raining outside. Good value.

Sat outside in a nice, peaceful, little square a stone's throw from the Stradum. Food was okay and they served some nice local beer and cocktails too. Food and drink seemed a little expensive. Staff need to learn to be more attentive and show enthusiasm - the welcome and delivery of food and drink was not at all done with... More

Myself, the GF and two friends stopped here for a drink after a wander around Dubrovnik. We sat outside in a busy square which was a little cold but not fault of the venue! Drinks were on the more expensive side- 45kn for a large beer which in some places i.e. Rovinj would buy two and have 15kn change!

We'd actually been staying in the hotel where this restaurant is on street level and where we'd had our breakfast each morning. So, with a very late flight home we choose to eat here before heading to the airport. It had been a drizzly day but the big umbrellas seemed to be doing a great job of keeping the outdoor... More

We had an excellent meal for a price that matched all the other good restaurants in this city where the prices are becoming so similar

We ate here in August. Service was really good. We had a bottle of house white wine which was fine. My main was a black ink risotto which was excellent. Very rich but so tasty. My wife had mussels which she enjoyed too. Plenty of bread. Setting is very nice in a courtyard. Fairly expensive but Dubrovnik isn't cheap.

Just reading some more recent reviews and Im quite suprised. We ate her on our first night in August. We were wandering around to find somewhere for dinner and wanted to book it for an hour or so hence so we could go and have a drink first. We happened across this place and spoke to the head waiter and... More

Terrible service, quality of food very poor despite high prices. Calamari was tough and chewy, other meals very disappointing. Avoid
