We are a couple in 30s living and working in Dubrovnik for many years now. And we have never written a review on Trip advisor. But Shizuku deserves it. Whenever we are hungry and we do not know where to go and what to eat, it is - Shizuku. Either reservation or take-away. We go there at least once a month since they opened couple of years ago because we know it is definitely one of five top restaurants in Dubrovnik? Why? Food quality. Different cuisine. Kind owners. Neat interior. And most of all, value for money. Each time you get the exact same tast of single meal you had the last time. They never change and they are always equaly superb. So, the only thing I have to say for the conclusion is: keep your business as it is, don't change because couple of random bad reviews will not impact what you really are.

Kindest regards,
Miro & Sanja

tried coming for a dinner but was fully reserved (place looked not even half full, 5 tables max) and turned away which is fine. Offered take out option instead, after 15min of choosing food they then told us none of the hot food were available as take out option. Should have told us from the beginning to save our time looking between the menu but they had zero professional courtesy. We went with cold dishes (simple sushi rolls) finally but after placing order they told us we needed to wait 40minutes for the food. We only ordered simple sushi and the place was serving only 5 tables at the time. We had been to Japan countless times and any self respecting chef could have done our order in under 15mins. Pretentious unprofessional spot avoid at all costs. We ended up walking to a short distance to a Korean spot cooked by Koreans serving up authentic stuff with friendly staff. Go there instead.

We would like to apologize for what happened to you on your last visit of our restaurant.
But would you please understand the empty tables which you saw were just waiting for the next reservation's arrival.We can not let you sit down if that table have a reservation after 30 min. Some people make a reservation even 1 month ahead.
So we don't want to let them wait when they arrived at our restaurant.
Also our priorities are the guests who is seating in the restaurant, so sometimes during busiest time we even decline takeaway order not to let the restaurant guests wait.
Now it's a middle of the high season so to avoid any inconvenience could you kindly make a reservation at least few days in advance.

Thank you very much and we are sorry for any inconvenience.

Great experience. Lovely food and attentive friendly service. One of the best value for money restaurants we visited during our trip.
Would definitely recommend booking as it’s a very busy restaurant.

Loved this restaurant - amazing interior and lovely staff. There's lots of cocktails to choose from and I had a Bramble starter which was delicious! Myself and my boyfriend are vegan and managed to have a tasty meal. We started with the veggie gyozas which were the tastiest gyozas I've ever had! We then had the avocado maki and the cucumber maki, both delicious and beautifully presented. We also had the California roll (I may have the name wrong!) which looked vegan to us as it said the cream cheese was optional but when it arrived it had egg in it. We said to our waiter that we didn't realise it had egg in it and he swapped it quickly and didn't charge us for it which was really nice of him.

Would really recommend this place! Be sure to book as it gets really busy!
