My wife and I visited here twice during our stay, we initially stopped for a glass of wine but were tempted by the menu after seeing it - it did not disappoint. they offer a large range of local and international cuisine and it is...cooked to perfection. they also offer a light lunch with an exquisite club sandwich! The highlight has to be the locally caught fresh fish which was excellent. The restaurant is named after its owner Ivan, who is very friendly and funny. thanks again for a great time! (they also serve GF food which is great for my Celiac Wife)More

After receiving poor service at one of the top restaurants in the resort, how refreshing it was to receive really honest friendly and efficient service. Delicious food and unbelievably good house white wine made locally.

We had walked passed this restaurant many times and decided to give it a go. Glad we did. I had the beefsteak which I like medium and it was cooked to perfection 👍😋 We were offered a fresh sea bass for two which was very...tempting but having had fish the night before we went for the chicken and steak meals. The staff were very friendly and the older waiter checked on us to see if the meals were ok and we had wine in our glasses, very professional! This is the only restaurant in Cavtat that offered a liqueur when we asked for the bill which came as a pleasant surprise as we were introduced to Kruskovac. Bought a bottle at the airport and we will enjoy a glass after our meal tonight.More

My family and I walked past this restaurant during a walk around lunch time, checked out the menu but there was nothing we fancied. As we were about to walk to the next place we were given a light lunch menu which was much more...suited for what we wanted. The food was fantastic and a great spot with an amazing view of the harbour. I would definitely eat here again, but would advise to show the lunch time menu as this was much more appealing at this time.More

Cannot fault this restaurant, the menu caters for all tastes, the staff are so helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The setting is fantastic, overlooking the harbour. I had the steak twice, it was the best I've had, when you're in Cavtat, try Ivans,...you won't be disappointed, we ate at various restaurants during our stay and can honestly say Ivans was the best value for money.More
