On our first Dubrovnik day it was raining with varying intensity. After a couple of hours hitting the high spots and dodging rain drops we were headed out of town. About mid way between the Palace of the Rector and the big fountain the Café Festival had opened all their awnings to provide as many dry tables as possible. We slipped into perfect people watching position and waited for the rain to let up. After watching several great looking plates of food getting served up we ordered wine and a lasagna dinner. Absolutely delicious. They brought us a couple plates of bread slices with a spectacular olive oil dip and then the dinner was served after about a half hour. We weren’t in a rush and were just starting to get hungry so it was excellent timing. A carafe of red wine was about $7.US, a bottle of mineral water was about $3.50, the lasagna was $15 and change. Total about $26US. We thought it was quite reasonable for a good meal and a top location on the main drag right in the heart of the tourist center.

We had breakfast each morning as part of a hotel package. We tried a different choice from the set menu every day; omelette with choice of fillings, eggs with ham or continental with croissant/jam - each served with toast, fresh orange juice and the best coffee in Dubrovnik! Festival Cafe is in a super location, right on the Stradum close to Pile Gate. It was great to sit in the sun and plan our day or just watch the world go by. Service was prompt and the members of staff very friendly. We will visit again for sure next time we have the opportunity to visit beautiful Dubrovnik again.

Ate lunch here early in the week and then dinner towards the end of our holiday. Central location with live pianist in the evening and delicious desserts.

We stopped here for breakfast on our last morning in Dubrovnik. The location is great, right on the Stradun with sunny outdoor seating. The staff was great and the food was fine, but nothing to write home about. The breakfast options are quite limited. We preferred Congo which is just down the street.

Great restaurant with a wide range of choice on their menu. Reasonable prices, live piano music and fantastic food quality!

Little touches like free desert and a blanket for my cold wife! Best table service we have had EVER!
