Probably the worst meal we have had in a very long time.

Very expensive and not very nice at all.

I would defiantly say love on to somewhere else where you will get a better meal at a cheaper price.

While in Dubrovnik we tried several restaurants around the city and can say that this one was the worst. I think we've been a bit lucky as the food was ok, maybe because we had a child :) but I do believe that all the other bad reviews are true.
The restaurant is on the first alley after passing the Great Onofrio Fountain. In the morning they have a big card with the breakfast options (mostly scrambled eggs) and at lunch time they change it.
For what it offers is quite expensive.
They DO NOT ACCEPT CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS and tell you this right at the end when you want to pay and you have to go to the ATM. Every other restaurant accepts credit/debit cards.
Also, THEY ADD A TABLE SERVICE IN THE BILL (7kn/each person at the table - is marked "couver"). No other restaurant adds this.
At the end the waiter shows you that the tip is not included. So, THEY WANT TIP ON TOP OF THE TABLE SERVICE FEE.
Overall, this is a TOURIST TRAP so DO NOT GO THERE!

In over 400 reviews I have never given a 1 rating because I honestly believe that every business owner is trying their best to earn a honest living. In this case the restaurant totally misrepresents the services they provide and added charges to the bill in an under hand way in an attempt to deceive the customer.
1) The restaurant does not accept credit cards but they failed to mention this when touting for your business, there are no signs in the restaurant area nor is there any mention in the menu
2) A cover charge of 7 HRK is added per person, again no mention when entering the restaurant, no mention on the menu and to add insult to injury the charge is conveniently buried in the middle of the bill
3) Any added "extra" such as mayonnaise incurs an additional charge of 7 HRK but to add salt in to the wound parmesan cheese for the Spaghetti Bolognese is also charged as an extra
4) They do not serve tap water, strange really as every other restaurant seems capable of doing so or providing complimentary mineral water. Here you have to buy a small bottle of water but beware by the time the waiter reached the table the "sealed" top was completely off. Probably tap water anyhow. Make sure your bottle is sealed when brought to the table.
5) The food was, surprisingly OK but again they let themselves down with smaller portions than other restaurants leaving the group still feeling hungry

What good can I say, the waitress was pleasant, spoke good english and was clearly being placed in a very uncomfortable position - find another job with more an honest and open employer.

This restaurant gives a bad name to the hospitality business of Dubrovnik and provides a bad experience for visitors to the town. If you, like myself, had failed to read previous reports and visit this restaurant and have the same type of experience by all means write the review but also write to the tourist office and let them know that this type of restaurant give the town a bad name.

Avoid at all costs

It is hard to believe that a place like this exists in the 21st century! The food is appalling, the prices exhorbitant & on top they add a cover charge, then tell you service is not included. The one star should be NO stars.
I strongly suspect that this place changes its name for each season, due to the consistently poor reviews. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
