Locally updated and revised, fresh* mini-guides are a great way to keep up to date on all the latest happenings & travel information in Croatia. Without further ado, here are some of our favourite places to eat in Dubrovnik.
This is our new favourite restaurant. The food is fantastic. The location superb. The young owners are hands-on and care deeply about using local ingredients and recipes. If you go, you will enjoy yourself. You will also be mere metres away from the famous cliff-side bar for after drinks or before drinks or whatever drinks...

Simple menu, reliable food, great location, and decent prices makes this a good place to grab a bite. During the season, it can get a bit more than a bit busy so be prepared to wait or try one of our other local haunts.
type: sit-down, casual, mediterranean, seafood
location: old harbour, old town, Dubrovnik

Looking for Indian food? This isn't actually the place. However, the good news is that the Taj Mahal is a friendly and delightful restaurant that serves a nice selection of traditional Bosnian food. Think grilled meats, some veg, and burek. Love the baked potatoes.

Unfortunately, Fresh* is no longer open. The crew behind it has decided to dedicate themselves to running a hostel located inside the Old Town.

When Gil's opened its doors in the summer of 2007, it was clear that more than a little money and effort had gone into converting the restaurant previously know as Labrint into something different. While eating here isn't for the budget-minded, this designer restaurant with a world-class wine cellar and lounge area, is a nice splash out. The ambience on the patio is superb and there are rumors that Gil's will offer an eclectic mix of tapas this season. Reservations recommended.
UPDATE: The restaurant has a new executive chef and has been rebranded as Dubrovnik 360 Degrees. Good news is that Gil will open a new venture in 2013. When he does, and after we have eaten there, we'll let you know. Keep posted.
