Firstly, thank you Givo (hope i got your name right!) amazing hospitality and warm welcome from time we checked in. Food was amazing! Oysters- probably the best in town! Great wine , huge portions we left our mains! Truffles and flavour in food was really good. Honestly this isn’t a complain but you just need a baby changing facility. Other than that definitely recommend a visit to Proto.

This restaurant is a type of restaurants with one or two excellent dishes. We tried three or four starters and just one was took our attention. It were oysters ))). But I need to be honest. Lobster pasta was really perfect and amazing. Fish soup also left a great impression. Location and service, waiters who are working 18 years, are perfect!

My wife and I ate twice at Proto during our honeymoon in Dubrovnik. The first time, I reserved a table and we were located on the terrace upstairs which is excellent. The food and drinks on both occasions were of a very high standard and the variety of fish and non-fish options is very good. The staff were very attentive, welcoming and gave useful information throughout. We will be recommending Proto to all of our friends and family.

I felt this restaurant totally over rated. The concierge recommend it us for dinner, next days fully booked so expectations were high. When finally we went I got totally disappointed food not as expected, like any other restaurant in town, nothing special. Service so busy that they are running around most of the time and they can’t give u a proper service.
