We spotted this restaurant as we were walking to our apartment in the old town and noted that it advertised breakfasts. As we were only staying the one night we didn't want to get food in so walked up for when it opened at 9am. We found a nice table under the grapevines with a lovely view of the old town.
The breakfast menu was rather minimal - cheese and or ham in omelettes or sandwiches. We opted for omelettes plus a coffee and fresh orange juice. All were decent, and the fresh orange juice was excellent, and it set us up for a walk of the walls.
The decor is interesting, including the Lady PiPi (quite literally) statue by the gate!

Good food and good prices relatively to sea food and dubrovnik...
We ordered the sea food platter for 2 , portion is big , 4 pieces of shrimps big by sight but small by meat content..
A good portion of mussels which were ok. 2 portions of grilled fish fillet which were ok. 2 portions of grilled tuna fillet which were a bit raw. 2 portions of octopus which were tasty. The house wine bottle turned out to be a great wine at a great price. Recomended for sure but not as expected after reading the reviews. Should be tried.

There was no line when we arrived, and there were 3 tables available. Nevertheless, the hostess, in a really bad mood and disrespectful way, made us wait for a 2 people table. We didn't complain and waited, but when it was free we saw that was a place on the sun - and these days are really hot in Dubrovnik!
The girl said that we could either stay on the sun or share a table in the shadow, but she was clearly bothered by our comment.
Overall, it looked like they was making us a huge favor by "letting" us sit in their precious restaurant.
We didn't want to get any more disrespected, or even to give our money to this place, so we left. There are good restaurants in the city, and no one need to climb so many stairs to be stressed by this kind of behavior.

We were walking the top of the fortress wall when we looked down and noticed a grape arbor neatly covering a tight space. When we asked about it, the instant answer was, "That's Lady Pi Pi." When I asked if the food was good, there was a quick nod of affirmation, so we decided to make the hike back up the stairs and give it a try. Very glad we did. It was so good, we took friends back there for a second visit. It's a small place and they don't open for lunch until noon, so get there a bit early. They will let you order drinks, but they don't start cooking until noon. Their fish selections are outstanding. They are prepared on an outdoor grill up on the terrace (more on that in a bit). The portions are generous and the seafood is wonderfully fresh. I suggest anything on the menu, but the seafood platter for two is my favorite. A generous pile of freshly-cooked mussels, large shrimp, two tuna steaks and two white fish fillets, along with some beans and potatoes. This is a generous portion of potatoes and veggies underneath.

The best place to sit is up on the terrace, though you might have to wait, or else get there early. And since they don't take reservations, you might have to wait.

But you will be glad you made the effort because this is some amazing food and the views are priceless.

We luckily were seated at a shared table with another couple at 6 pm and thoroughly enjoyed their company for over two hours. At that time, we were first in line but most tables already had clients due to arriving earlier for drinks. The food and house wines were delicious and very reasonably priced. I had a salad, tuna and desert....more food than I could eat. Portions are generous. Service was good including not feeling rushed even though there was a long line waiting outside. Such a nice location too, away from the tourist places.
