Expert review of Levanat

Levanat combines sea views and fresh fish away from the crowds on the Lapad peninsular.

Levanat remains my top choice for a romantic meal on Lapad. To get here, you follow a lovely leafy footpath around the edge of the bay, to arrive at a stone building with a waterside terrace and magnificent views onto the open sea and the rocky islets of Grebeni and Sveti Andrija. It opened in 2002, serving sound Dalmatian cuisine with an emphasis on seafood, and quickly won the hearts of locals and visitors alike.

Food and drink: 

A popular appetizer is the Dubrovnik Platter – slices of Paški sir (sheep’s cheese from the island of Pag), pršut (prosciutto) and marinated octopus with a handful of olives. Main courses include pasta dishes, grilled sea bass, grilled squid and tender steaks. For dessert, they do a yummy apple and walnut strudel.

Recommended dishes: 

The house specialities are prawns in honey and sage, and ‘crazy pasta’ (green tagliatelle topped with delicious seafood and cheese).

Ambience: 

With its stone terrace, backed by dense Mediterranean planting, and sublime sea views, Levanat is as much about the setting as it about the food. Southwest facing, it also gets magnificent sunsets. There’s a café section too, so it’s possible to come here just for coffee or a drink.

Service: 

The waiters are friendly and polite but service can be slow when it gets busy - sit back, enjoy the view and remember you’re on holiday.

Location: 

It's in a wonderful waterside location, a 10-minute walk from Lapad’s main beach. The Valamar Dubrovnik President lies just five minutes along the coast, while Hotel Splendid is visible across the bay.

Price advice: 

Expect to pay around 500 kuna for a two-course meal for two people, with wine.

Tables to book: 

Try to book a table on the terrace directly above the shoreline.
