The restaurant was advised by a guide and multiple competing restaurants as being the best fish restaurant in Dubrovnik. We can safely say it did not disappoint. You pay a bit more than other places but the difference in quality is worth it. The waiting staff knows what they are serving and will happily provide you with suggestions.

Lovely service from our waiter however the food was at best average. We had heard from our Air BnB host that experiences from recent guests of theirs did not live up to the expectation that one would have of a Michelin Guide recommended restaurant. Regardless, we had decided to give the restaurant a go. Sadly, they were correct. Overall, little value for money and personally would not recommend.

We had such a lovely evening. We had been recommended this place and we booked a table on the rooftop terrace. You will not be disappointed. The restaurant is beautiful, the food delicious, the waiting staff extremely professional. We only had a main course, but absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. If you are wanting a treaty dinner out, then this is your place.

This was the most expensive restaurant we ate in dubrovnik. The setting was special as we were sat on the roof terrace. I'm glad we went and I can see why it has built up a good reputation. Saying that, we had equally good food at other more reasonable restaurants. I had the Sea Bream which was gorgeous and well presented. There is attention to detail with each of the dishes. There was too much truffle in the Bresola starter and again in one of the past dishes - this made the taste a bit overwhelming. Service was very good and can't be faulted. If was staying in the city for longer I would have chosen one or two restaurants above this to visit again that I thought were better value
