Prices for food and drink in Dubrovnik.

Hi, thinking of a self- catering holiday in Dubrovmik in September next year and would like any info on food and drink prices or would it be more advisable to take a half board deal in a hotel. Many thanks in advance.

If you are thinking of cost, hotels charge per person. We rented an apartment for a week in April, and because we prefer our own cooking and schedule, felt we came out ahead. Feel free to send me a pm and I'll be happy to give further details.

The food is not known to be great at many of the resort hotels in Dubrovnik, though I have never personally stayed in any of them. Given the variety of restaurants around town, I think you will have a better experience if you are free to choose your own. I don't know which would be more expensive. Here is a link to another post where I answered the question about the cost of food: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g295371-i1555-k368… These are just estimated prices, but I think they are fairly accurate.

For any destination in Croatia, I would recommend a self catering style holiday rather than a half board/full board offer. The markets in Croatian towns and cities are excellent and very reasonable, you'll find homegrown fruits and vegetables, cheeses, fish, meat, honey, etc in the small markets and the supermarkets are plentiful and are also very reasonable, you'll also find that local beers/wines are very cheap in the supermarkets. Try and make sure you rent an apartment with a decent cooking and eating area tho, sometimes the kitchens are just too small for more than breakfast. Eating out and drinking out in Dubrovnik is definitely one of the more expensive locations in Croatia but it is still not too bad if you stay off the main tourist drag.

Hi there

We actually found a good little restaurant just opposite the bus station in Dub not sure of the name. The location wasn't great but there were plenty of locals and tourists eating there. The large beers were only 15K
