I like a restaurant which combines the best aspects of fine dining- imaginative cooking using local ingredients- with the friendly and accommodating service you might receive in your local eatery. This is not an easy balancing act to pull off, but as a general rule, the way an establishment caters for a fussy 10 year old is a good yardstick!... More

This is a cute and every small place, especially if it's cold out and the outside patio is not available. I would highly recommend you go but make reservations, even if you call for same day reservations. We started with the pork belly, and had the sea bass fillet, leg of lamb for dinner and then cheesecake with honey and... More

Down by the marina, well away from the crowds. Great setting - a dozen tables inside. Informal setting, very friendly service - could well be family run. Food tasty and a wide menu, and Gordons gin and Schweppes tonic - what more can one ask. Book a table for a relaxed, fun and decently priced evening out.

First of all, you really need to book before you come. I saw several people being turned away as they did not have a reservation. Ott's offers modern European cuisine served in a very relaxing atmosphere. The staff are friendly, knowledgable and in no rush to turn over your table. Their steaks are delicious but beware of the chilli broccoli... More

We ordered three steaks but they were the worst we ever had . Other fish and salad dishes were good . The steak was rubbery and tasteless beef ( it didn't even taste like beef ) they didn't charge us for the steaks though but we left the place with empty stomach !! I surely can not recommend this restaurant

Excellent food and service. Best to book in advance, which we didn't but were given a table out on the patio. Friendly and helpfull staff. Was recommended by our taxi driver from the airport. Mostly used by locals.

We were in Dubrovnik for 2 nights. The first night we were jet lagged and chose to eat in the old town as we were staying close to it. The second night we wanted to venture out and see a little of the town outside the walls. We checked on TripAdvisor and found 2 highly rated restaurants. One of them... More

We decided to give the Ottos Taverna a try following the good reviews on TA. As with other restaurants we have visited locally, Ottos had a very limited menu 5-6 items for starter and main course, but we found dishes that we fancied. For starters we had mussels and chicken pate and both went down well. Both were tasty and... More

Very nice place. Unfortiounatly they made a big mistake. I ordered a Ribeye from the meny (mediumrare). They came in with a Sirloin made rare. Sirloin was not even on the meny. To bad. The starter, Tuna tartar was fantastic and my wife had a real good tuna steak. Cheating with meat cuts is not OK.

A spur of the moment booking turned out to be the best decision of our holiday so far. This small vaulted restaurant is elegant, plays good music and serves delicious food. The welcome and service were excellent and everything on the menu looked tempting. We settled on the tuna steak and the lamb - both were fabulous. We enjoyed it... More
