Description: Contemporary Mediterranean Fine Dining Executive Chef Sasa Racunica has earned Vapor a reputation as one of the finest restaurants in the city. Racunica uses Mediterranean ingredients as the base for his menu, experimenting with herbs and spices, and elements of international cuisine, to create a unique, new style of regional cooking. Sample the seven-course tasting menu for the full Vapor experience. The dining room is also open in the morning for breakfast, when the light and airy space is flooded with sunlight. SIGNATURE DISHES Baked Angler served with mashed broccoli and vanilla sauce Beef Fillet "ROSSINI" served on potato blinis, gratinated with Parma ham and gruyere finished with truffle and marsala jus

We dined at Vapor on a serene spring evening. The restaurant is set on a clifftop overlooking a tiny beach with far reaching views to the Dubrovnik headland. We had a table on the terrace and the uniformed waiting staff were attentive and unobtrusive. The food was very good. We were served very fresh bread rolls with a tasty selection of olive oils. We were then offered an amuse bouche, which was not particularly interesting, a tiny slice of octopus tentacle with beetroot. For starters I had the truffle gnocchi and my dining companion the scallops. The gnocchi were excellent and the scallops were good. For mains I went for the duck breast and that was disappointing. The meat was well cooked but the rest of the dish was fruit and rather than complimenting the duck, sadly, it overpowered it. The lamb cutlets were excellent. We finished up with superb cherry baclava and pannacotta and coffee. With 2 glasses of wine and a bottle of mineral water the bill came to approximately £130.

Was wonderfully surprised by how good the hotel restaurant was , sat on the terrace over looking the bay , it was a great meal - the selection was great and reasonably priced for what was a fine dining meal comparable with Many we have eaten in Michelin starred locales in London - highly recommended

We don’t normally eat at hotel restaurants of an evening but had heard such good reviews of Vapor that we decided to give it a go. It was one of the tastiest evening meals that we had eaten for a long time. The staff in the restaurant were attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. We both decided to have the fish soup and I then had the Beef Fillet Rossini and my friend had the lamb cutlets. The soup was very tasty and our mains were both cooked to perfection. I am not surprised that the restaurant had received such good reviews. As always I saved room for a sweet and had a cherry baklava which was heavenly. The wine that we had was a local one a Korak Chardonnay which I would love to buy at home, as it had a lovely butterscotch taste to it. If any of my friends go to Dubrovnik I will certainly tell them to go along and enjoy one of the finest meals that they will have in the area. If only it had been warmer we could have sat and had our meal by the ocean but the views through the window were great. For a great dining experience you too should go along to Vapor.

Vapour was the restaurant in our hotel, and had a great breakfast buffet and a la carte available each day. The service was always prompt and friendly.

We tend to go out for dinner wherever we go but we’re tempted to stay in for Vapor one rainy evening because of the good reviews.

The food was excellent, and the service too. The views would have been great but for a rainy day (not any fault of the restaurant). I can imagine that eating on the terrace on a dry, warm evening would be fabulous.

The only reason for not give my it maximum marks are the ambience (functional hotel dining area) and the price, which was “reassuringly expensive”. But otherwise no reasons not to recommend this place to go, if you have the budget.
