Its best of both worlds. With its Japanese inspired interiors that complement well with its good food, its a nice restaurant because it offers very nice view of the old medieval city as well as beautiful sunsets.

Most of the restaurants in Dubrovnik cook for the tourist crowd, knowing full well they wont be back, and the food is very middle of the road (if not worse). This restaurant is the exception. As other reviewers have noted, it's a top of the...More

There are many menu options that don't include meat and dairy. Typically, Japanese restaurants provide for vegetarian and vegan customers. The menu is available on their web.page, so can view before making a reservation.

Takenoko Dubrovnik Our restaurant Takenoko was the first Japanese restaurant in Croatia which makes us the initiators of an exceptional culinary story in the region and beyond. We have spent 15 successful years at our first location in Centar Kaptol. The second big step for us that in spring of 2016 was the opening of a luxury restaurant Takenoko in one of the world centers of tourism - Dubrovnik. Led by our longtime chef Motohiko Mochizuki and Mario Obrovac in Zagreb, we presented a new menu for the two newly opened restaurants. The chef at our address in Dubrovnik is a great name of Croatian culinary scene, Mario Starman. Another interesting innovation that we introduced after the transfer is a new selection of cocktails and beverages, which was created by our barmen Krunoslav Miler. The business tradition and the continued high level of work resulted in winning numerous awards.
