Superb meal here. Staff were very attentive. Explained the menu well and the service was first class. Sitting by the waters edge on a warm sunny day doesn't get better than this. Thanks to all the staff

Staff at Ivan very friendly & provide good service. On this occasion we had exemplary sea bass & beef stroganof. Variety of seating, with tables nicely spaced. Facility to reserve. Good Cuba Libra. Treated to an afterdinner pear liqueur. Reasonable pricing for quality of food gained.

We ate in Ivan's towards the end of our holiday, the food was absolutely amazing . I have never seen so much seafood in a seafood risotto and my husbands tuna steak was cooked to perfection. The service was brilliant, the gentleman could not do enough and the prices are more than reasonable. P.s. The chocolate soufflé was to die... More

Had to wait for my flight so took a taxi from the airport & enjoyed a tasty lunch & was able to make use of the free wifi. The staff were all very helpful & friendly.They even allowed me to leave my suitcase at the restaurant whilst I had a walk around Cavtat then came back for a coffee.

Another great restaurant we found in Cavtat overlooking a lovely picturesque harbour scene.The food was a real treat and we loved everything and it was a shame it was our last night in this charming town. We are aiming to come back. Thumbs up to really friendly staff and they were a real credit to this resturant.

We ate here several times. they have all the usual dishes but one or two different ones. One night we enjoyed a Croation Fish Stew,not as good as Portuguese Caldierada but acceptabe all the same. As with all the places staff were friendly but perhaps just a little more relaxed here. Also had heaters inside when it was cool

This is a genuinely good restaurant. It's in a nice location on the waterfront, although not on the main strip. We had lovely sea bass, freshly caught and beautifully cooked. Fish is filleted at your table by friendly waiters

We had visited Ivan last year and were impressed so we visited agin this year. Ordered Lamb chops, my partner ordered the lamb fillet, we had soup to start which was good, the chops were small and cold, I asked for fries, but was given chargrilled (burnt ) peppers and courgettes which were extremely greasy. Waited for the fries but... More
