Description: The chefs and owners, Ivana and Damir Raguž, together with their small friendly team of food enthusiasts, work hard to ensure that Porat earns its reputation for serving up delicious home-style cooking and traditional favourites prepared and presented with a special touch and lots of love for what they do. Located in vibrant Gruž Harbour, Porat is “strategically” in the immediate vicinity of the farmer’s market and the fish market. For those who prefer to dine late at night, join the Chef at around 11 p.m. and be the first one to visit the large fishing boats as they dock in front of the restaurant. Very often the fresh catch (fish, crabs, and molluscs) goes directly into the creative kitchen and by midnight it is cooked and served to the guests. Both inside and on its terrace, the Porat Restaurant & Bar exude an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere. Bathed in the bright colours of sunshine during the day and romantically lit during the evening, this impressive space is ideal for organizing magnificent lunches, dinners and private gatherings. From its laid back atmosphere, through its amazingly delicious food to its incredibly friendly service, in Porat everything is set to make you feel relaxed without much fuss. From the moment you walk in, you know this is the place where you will eat well and in abundance – because our portions are quite generous. It’s difficult to choose just one thing to recommend from the menu, but after you finish with the appetiser – which you absolutely must have – try one of the steaks, as they are prepared to perfection!

A very nice little restaurant in Dubrovnik across the way from where the cruise ships come in. They have a sitting area outside and tables inside. There are tv's on the wall showing the owner/chef preparing the meals with a lot of fresh seafood. Their special dinner with fish soup, an entree of fresh sea bass, and homemade ice cream for dessert was only $120 kuna which is around $20. The sea bass was very fresh! The ice cream was delicious! The special for calamari was also very good. You can also order wine and other soft drinks. The service was excellent and the servers spoke very good English.

Went to Porat for lunch.
The restaurant has a menu and atmosphere which is Bistro- like.
Menu is good, with enough choices.
Both waitrons were friendly and gave good advise, espacially regarding the local wine.
I had wild boar goulash with gnocci. This was a great dish with the Croation Merlot I had.
For desert I had a chocolate souffle, which was more like a chocolate fondant. But, excellent, served with a berrir coulis and vanilla ice cream.
Prices are reasonable.
Will try to visit again before leaving Dubrovnik.

If it wasnt for Tripadvisor we would have never walked in. From outisde it looks like one of the typical boring restaurant. When we ealked in, the place was vibranate, more bistro then restaurant. We ate small squid which was wondefull. Nothing to complain.

Fish soup was without any piece of fish. Seafood risotto good but minimalistic portions. Too pricey glass of wine. Because of good taste of risotto overall comes good but would not recommend. Next door restaurant and few meters away Amfora were better.
