Delicious food, excellent service, great setting along the seafront in a beautiful town. We enjoyed a wonderful lazy set menu lunch here for 179. Great place to stop not far from Dubrovnik airport.

For our last night in Croatia, we stayed in the beautiful seaside village of Cavtat and this was one of 2 restaurants that were recommended to us. We were absolutely amazed at the quality of our dinner but especially with the incredible service we received...from Anatasia (Anna) at the restaurant. She was charming, helpful and a joy to speak with. My wife had the duck and I ordered the Lamb that was the best I have ever tasted. I can't believe this place could ever receive any bad reviews and can just chalk it up to miserable people that can never be pleased. If you are on the fence about where to go, don't hesitate to give this place a try. It had wonderful food, great service, and a beautiful view along the seafront that can't be beaten!More

We so enjoyed lunch here that we returned today and we were equally delighted. The 3 course menu at 179 Kns. is exceptional value. The standard of cuisine is the best we have experienced.. The quality of the food and presentation was superb and absolutely...delicious. Sat overlooking the bay, the service was friendly, timely and professional.More

Excellent food and service. 3 course lunch menu for 179 kunas (about £20) meant excellent value as well. Just as good as when I came here years ago.

Enjoyed an absolutely fantastic lunch here during our stay in Cavtat. I chose lunch as I thought the dinner menu was a little too expensive, and lunch was very good value for money. Booking is essential. Had a lovely lunch with great service to match....The best meal of the stay. Everything from the drinks to the breads to the 3 courses was superbly executed, with lovely fresh ingredients. I now regret not booking dinner here! Next time we will visit again for sure!More

We love a good tasting menu but this was outrageously good. To have the tasting menu you need to go fairly early and you definitely need to book! The location on the seafront is beautiful. The staff are warm, welcoming and very knowledgeable. The owner...is charming. But the food……… exceptional. Everything is homemade, incredibly tasty and really fresh. Presentation and the marrying of flavours is imaginative and really works. Don’t worry if there is something you don’t like. The waiters will discuss your personal menu with you. We have already booked to go back twice more while we are here. Not the cheapest but in terms of value for what you get it’s perfect.More

My partner and I recently spent a couple of weeks in Cavtat. We visited Bugenvila three times during our stay and enjoyed an excellent dinner on each occasion. The menu was extensive, with plenty vegetarian options for my girlfriend, and staff extremely friendly. The food...was excellently prepared and presented, and very tasty, and we enjoyed wine and cocktails also. We would gladly recommend Bugenvila to anyone visiting Cavtat and would visit without hesitation ourselves if back in future.More

We had a very delicious dinner in this restaurant. The hits for us were pate and lobster bisque. Highly recommended!

Hello I believe they do. Couple sitting next to us had to have gluten free and I think they accommodated them. Don’t be afraid to mix and match the courses, or just have a starter or just a main , they really don’t mind. We... More
