Went here for lunch on my last day in Melbourne. Great location just in the centre of the atmospheric Williamstown. The restaurant decor is somewhat bland though and it could definitely have more Croatian look. An Italian waiter who served me was very very friendly.

The food is traditional Croatia and is excellent. I found the service too slow waited too long for our meals

We are locals who have frequently enjoyed the authentic Indian food at Ragusa. The menu is extensive and offers a variety if banquets. The prices are very reasonable. The curries are tasty and plentiful. The service was good and the owners are keen to serve. They also offer take away and free delivery.

Our favourite restaurant, great food selection, food & service are always consistently great. We both had the roast pork belly today which was fantastic as always. Entrees and dessert were also delicious.
