We arrived at 8:20pm and sat down to wait for the waiter who was serving other people. He ignored us and then greeted two guests who arrived 5 minutes later and he allowed them straight in without any reservation. We then asked if we could...order and he said the table was reserved and we had to wait for two minutes to get seated inside. He brought us a wine list but said we couldn’t order yet?! We then waited 15 more minutes for two people to then arrive and be told we had to leave and there were no seats?! Total Waste of time and rude service from staff. It’s really quiet in Dubrovnik at the moment and so it makes no sense. We don’t know what the issue was with us but they were unclear, rude and unhelpful. Avoid. The alleged good food is not worth the pathetic service.More

Probably the best meal we had in Croatia. I had the Dubrovnik dirty pasta and my husband had the shrimp ravioli, we also had the tuna prosciutto appetizer. Absolutely fantastic and the owners delightful! Thank you for a great experience. Dennis and Marlayne ,NM, USA.

Best small restaurant in Dubrovnik! The excellent reviews for this restaurant are for good reason. I knew going in that the pasta with truffle and shrimp would be and was beyond exceptional! Now, here is where my review turns to excellence…..I have never and was...always afraid to try octopus. Chef at this restaurant deserves a million stars!!!!

100% would recommend. The owner adds such character to the restaurant. The food speaks for itself, the homemade burratta pasta would be my suggestion although the calamari were 10/10 too. So with the excellent food and the superb host this restaurant cannot be skipped when...visiting Dubrovnik.More

All i can say is WOW! Brilliant service and the best food I've had on my trip to Croatia. Me and my partner both had the beef pasta and it was so tasty. So much so, when I couldn't finish all of it I asked...for a box to take back with me to eat later! All the staff were so accommodating and lovely, we didn't have a booking, I thought there would be no room but luckily a couple had just left so the table became free for 2 hours before the next booking, so they sat us down straight away When we return to Croatia we'll make sure to stop off at Dubrovnik just to come back to this lovely restaurantMore
