360 degrees

Critics choice

This superbly located newbie sits by the entrance of Buža II, and quickly went to number one on TripAdvisor in its very first season. Here you can tuck into a reasonably priced, Med-and-Asian-influenced main here – fragrant meatballs in a chicken-coconut broth, perhaps, or Adriatic prawn pouches on grilled aubergine in a red-curry-and-coconut sauce – before an…

Pobijana 10, Dubrovnik More info


In business since 1979, this is the city’s most revered, and one of its cheapest, pizzerias. Set just off Stradun, it also serves pastas (lasagne, spaghetti), salads and breakfasts.

Bistro Riva

Year-round cheapie located behind a walled-in courtyard over the water from Gruž harbour. In summer tourists tucking into Dalmatian-style scampi (105kn) and beefsteak ‘America’ (with egg and fried potatoes; 90kn) fill the terrace. In winter, the action moves inside, as students fill up on the 30kn marenda daily lunches, choice of ten pizzas (25kn-40kn) and…

A real find, this, opened in 2006. Facing Gruž harbour across the water, Blidinje comprises a rustic ground-floor space of two dozen covers, and two first-floor terraces with wonderful views of the marina and hills beyond. Carnivores should order veal, lamb or pork slow-cooked in the open oven – having given the kitchen a two-hour…

Chihuahua-Cantina Mexicana

A free-standing house in a prime spot over the north wall of the Old Town, this friendly yellow-painted eaterie serves up a mess of Mexican food. For the price (enchiladas, tacos, fajitas and burritos in the 50kn range), it’s an easy option. The house special (90kn) of grilled turkey, steak and spare ribs requires dedication,…

Dubravka 1836

By the Pile Gate this landmark venue dating back to its namesake year of foundation is now a modernised, sunken room brightened by old photos of the trams that terminated here when intellectuals, writers and the chess society were regulars. A spot on the seafacing terrace is ideal for the Dubrovnik Breakfast with ham and cheese, one of five morning…

Open all year round, this intimate, traditional konoba near the main square does nothing revolutionary but what it does do – lamb shashliks, grilled squids, more fish choice than most – it does well. Certainly, the kitchen seems to know how much garlic and oil to add where necessary. There are a couple of children’s…

Near the upper entrance to the Hotel Kompas, the Eden is a comfortable place in which to enjoy seafood, steak and superior starter dishes, not least from its panoramic roof terrace festooned with greenery. The interior is by no means shabby either, all bright colours and modern art on the walls. Frog’s legs, anchovies on…
