10 places to eat & drink in Dubrovnik, Croatia

Dubrovnik is in an abundance of restaurants, cafes, and bars. Over the ten days, I spent here I was blown away by the amount of choice and also the quality of the food and drink especially the local wine. I absolutely had to share these wonderful spots with you.

Definitely check out Carmen Trattoria for lunch or dinner, that’s if you’re lucky to get a reservation. I’d recommend booking ahead. A small family-owned restaurant set down a beautiful stone alleyway is the place to refuel after climbing the Walls of Dubrovnik. Serving simple, authentic, and flavoursome plates of food at a reasonable price. We enjoyed some fresh seafood pasta, nicely washed down with a glass of local Croatian wine – heavenly!

Ok call me a coffee snob – I found it so difficult to find a good barista coffee in Dubrovnik. The place to go is Cogito coffee, they have one located in the Old Town and the other in Ploce Gate. With only a few stools and benches to sit on outside, we loved our morning coffee here watching the world go by. Such a great little spot – really recommend the iced latte!

INCREDIBLE gelato at Pepino’s is a must, claiming to serve the best ice cream in Dubrovnik. Full of a selection of different flavours – favourites for me were the white Kinder Beuno & pistachio.

A short taxi ride from the Old Town of Dubrovnik is Orsan restaurant, located in Lapad. Enjoy stunning views

Proto restaurant

Taj Mahal serves Bosian specialities –

Buza Bar

You’ll find an old-fashioned sandwich shop in the Old Town called Buffet Skola. Think freshly baked bread filled with local cheese and prosciutto as well as homemade apple strudel. A good pit stop if you’re needing a bit of a pick me up on the go.

Panorama Restaurant
