If you want to eat something different and so tasty, this is a place for You. Food is very tasty, summon the view at the old town of Dubrovnik and you got the complete feeling. Tastes of Japan in “King’s Landing” - priceless!!!

We are not so familiar with japanese cuisine,but we decided to give it a go. Waiters were friendly and helped us explain the menu. We ate selection of sushi,black cod and beefsteak and everything was tasty. Also their wine selection is excellent. Will come again.

Food was overpriced for the quality that it was. Service was great but there were two things that were to my dissatisfaction. First, before our food arrived, they gave us three dishes to start that are usually complimentary of the chef (at nice restaurants anyway)...More

A nice change from the local cuisine, but the food is average at best and accordingly overpriced. Soy sauce provided was terrible with the nigiri. Fish was acceptable but nothing special. Service was rather slow - perhaps they were understaffed on a busy Saturday night....More

There are many menu options that don't include meat and dairy. Typically, Japanese restaurants provide for vegetarian and vegan customers. The menu is available on their web.page, so can view before making a reservation.

Takenoko Dubrovnik Our restaurant Takenoko was the first Japanese restaurant in Croatia which makes us the initiators of an exceptional culinary story in the region and beyond. We have spent 15 successful years at our first location in Centar Kaptol. The second big step for us that in spring of 2016 was the opening of a luxury restaurant Takenoko in one of the world centers of tourism - Dubrovnik. Led by our longtime chef Motohiko Mochizuki and Mario Obrovac in Zagreb, we presented a new menu for the two newly opened restaurants. The chef at our address in Dubrovnik is a great name of Croatian culinary scene, Mario Starman. Another interesting innovation that we introduced after the transfer is a new selection of cocktails and beverages, which was created by our barmen Krunoslav Miler. The business tradition and the continued high level of work resulted in winning numerous awards.
