Additions to Dubrovnik Restaurant Guide

Some time ago we shared a Dubrovnik Restaurant Guide through a series of posts on this blog. Since then several new restaurants have opened in the Dubrovnik area and we would like to add a few of those to the list:

Restaurant Dubrovnik, Marojice Kaboge 5 Croatian fare with an Italian twist. Bacon-wrapped pork medallions, homemade pasta with truffle sauce, and squid stuffed with goat cheese are some of the standouts, and the first-floor terrace dining area is lovely. It is more expensive than most restaurants in Old Town, but worth it for the romantic and elegant setting, attentive service, and imaginative food.

Komarda, Frana Supila This casual restaurant (located just outside of the Ploce Gate) serves mid-priced local fare (meat, seafood, pasta, salads), but the real reason for coming here is the pleasant seaside setting that gives diners a postcard-worthy view of the Old Town’s port. It’s a great spot to while away a few daytime or evening hours.

Orsan Yacht Club, Ivana Zajca 2, Lapad Lovely seaside restaurant that serves the standard Dalmatian menu with an emphasis on fish and seafood. It’s a bit pricey and parking can be a problem, but the picturesque harborside seating and tranquil atmosphere can’t be beat. On a budget? Go at lunch time and ask the waiter about the “Marende”, a daily lunch special offered at a low price, usually 35-45 kuna.

King Konoba, Plat (below the main road, turn off is at the Plat bus stop) Off-the-beaten-path family restaurant with a pleasant covered terrace dining area. The menu is simple (grilled meat, grilled fish, salads, and a few pasta dishes), but the quality of the food is high and the prices are low. Stand-outs include the mixed grill and grilled squids, both served with a large plate of grilled vegetables and a generous serving of French fries. Everything is presented attractively and there is plenty of good local wine to enliven the already jovial atmosphere.

Restaurant Dalmacija, Trumbicev put 9, Cavtat Dalmatian fare served on a covered terrace with sea views. Try the “Steak Dalmacija” served on a sizzling cast-iron plate. They also have a nice dessert list.
