24.01.2020- On the Menu: Where to eat in Dubrovnik

This post has been a little while in the formulation, but I’m really thrilled to be able to finally share some of my top foodie recommendations from Dubrovnik! The food we had on our trip there was just incredible, and each of the restaurants we visited was amazing. We didn’t eat out for every meal- for breakfast and lunch we picked things up from the local bakeries and supermarkets, but of an evening we were more inclined to treat ourselves to a restaurant meal. There are plenty of incredible options whatever you’re looking for, and the majority of restaurants are fairly affordable too, so if you’ve got limited time it’s well worth doing some research ahead of time to make sure you can squeeze in some of the best eats in town: 

Nautika- Brsalje ul. 3, 20000, Dubrovnik 
We went to Nautika on our first night, and it was the perfect introduction to Dubrovnik, especially as we were lucky enough to get a table outside and watch the sun going down over the sea as we ate. The menu changes seasonally, but I opted for the most delicious tuna and fennel dish, which was so fresh and presented absolutely beautifully. The service here was absolutely impeccable too, and the staff couldn’t do enough to make sure our visit was as enjoyable and memorable as possible. Definitely one to make a point of visiting if you’re looking for super special destination dining.

Fat Cats- Prijeko ul. 30, 20000, Dubrovnik 
The perfect Saturday night pitstop for us (after an afternoon of sea kayaking!) came in the shape of Fat Cats, offering delicious street food and perfect plates for sharing. I had the tacos and we had some croquettas to share- the ideal warming, comforting option after a long stretch out at sea! 

Above 5- Ul. od Sigurate 4, 20000, Dubrovnik 
Situated on the only rooftop terrace in the Old Town, Above 5 is a wonderful destination for any time of the day, but the breakfast we had there watching the city come to life was amazing. I opted for the Eggs Royale which was delicious, accompanied by a cup of freshly brewed tea and a bounty of accompaniments which come with the Mediterranean Breakfast option (served with all breakfast orders), including a bread baskets, cheese and seasonal fruit and vegetables. 

Restaurant 360- Ul. Svetog Dominika bb, 20000, Dubrovnik 
For our final night in Dubrovnik, we headed to Restaurant 360, a Michelin starred fine dining location which couldn’t have been a better location from which to take in the city by night. Exclusively serving dinner, the restaurant offers A-la-Carte and tasting menus, and boasts spectacular views overlooking the port and the ancient city. Again, the food and service here was impeccable and worth every last kuna- for comparison, the final bill per head was about the same as you’d pay for an equivalent meal in London.
