Expert review of Orhan
For me the big plus here is the location, hidden away in a little cove just outside the city walls, at the foot of the 14th-century Lovrijenac Fortress. A great find, it seems so peaceful after the touristy Old Town, but don’t be fooled, it can get very busy. They offer a decent selection of local and international dishes, and occasionally cater for wedding parties.
Despite its location, overlooking a fishing harbour, Orhan does a choice of both meat and seafood dishes. Favourites include the juho od gljiva (mushroom soup), škampi na buzaru (shrimps coked in garlic, white wine and parsley), divlja svinjetina (wild boar) and pečena teletina (roast veal). They have very decent house wines too.
The chateaubriand receives a lot of compliments.
It's romantic and relaxing, with a lovely covered terrace overlooking the water, presided over by the floodlit Lovrijenac Fortress perched high upon a rocky mound. It's perfect on a moonlit summer evening. Indoors, there are two floors with wood-panelled dining rooms.
Service can be a little haphazard, especially when it is busy, but the waiters are friendly and polite.
Overlooking a pretty fishing harbour with a kayaking club, it's just outside the old town, a five-minute walk from Pile Gate.
Expect to pay around 500 kuna for a two-course meal for two people, with wine.
