On a short vacation in Cavtat we eated three times in this restaurant. We were very satisfied. Everything we eated was delicious. Only one thing that bothered me, is bad choice of wine, but that doesn't have anything with the quality of food. So with a better choice of wine, I can imagine this experience even better than it was.

We ate here on our last night in Cavtat, just as well as we might have been tempted to visit a couple more times. Our waiter was very friendly and guided us through the menu and recommended wine to go with the meal. The best steak ever from the teenager and the black risotto was delicious. A memorable meal to...

We found this little gem of a restaurant while on holiday in Cavtat and are there three times within seven days. The food was excellent and a very good choice of wine. Our waiter Anti (I am not sure of the spelling) was very helpful, friendly and professional. All dishes that we had were excellent and the chocolate desert was... More

We spent one week holiday in Dubrovnik and we made one day trip to Cavtat. We had some not so good restaurant experience in Dubrovnik so we checked TripAdvisor first when we arrived in Cavtat. It was amazing. We ordered oysters, octopus terrine, mushroom soup and pork neck. All went very good. Actually it turned out to be our best... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our food in this restaurant. The service was amazing, with friendly and fluent English speaking waiters. The view to the harbor is so romantic too, The main courses were yum maybe a tad on the small portion size. Although I gave 5 stars the desserts could be improved. We had the panacotta which was tiny while my... More

Lovely atmosphere and the waiter we had was excellent and very friendly without being overbearing. The inventiveness of the meals we sampled were excellent and tasted amazing. We've eaten there 3 times over the past year and it's always been superb.

We stumbled across this restaurant on our last night, otherwise we would have eaten here every night. From the moment we sat down we were looked after by fabulous staff. The menu although small (Autumn menu) has great choices. The food is inspired, well balanced, quality and beautifully presented, I cannot believe the quality considering the cost stunning value, a...

Having read the reviews on this place we of course had to go here. We were not dissappointed. Very good food and nice ambience. The lunch is also at a very reasonable price! However, the service was a bit too stressful since we were not given the time to finish our apertif before we got first the two courses of... More
