Expert review of Orsan

A yacht club fish restaurant in the marina on Dubrovnik’s Lapad peninsular.

Yachty types tend to know a lot about seafood and have high demands. Another world from the touristy restaurants in the Old Town, this long-standing waterside eatery reopened in summer 2009 with new owners and a stylish modern look. Luckily the menu has changed little and it's still one of the best places in Dubrovnik for fresh fish. The local boat owners wouldn’t accept anything less.

Food and drink: 

It’s all about seafood here - seafood risotto, seafood pasta and grilled fresh fish. They also do steaks for non-conformists. Side dishes include local seasonal vegetables and salads. There is excellent house wine too.

Recommended dishes: 

Try the Salata od hobotnice (octopus salad), crni rižot (black risotto made from cuttlefish ink) and the day’s fresh fish.

Ambience: 

What I love about Orsan is the relaxed atmosphere. It’s frequented mainly by local sailing people who keep their boats in the Orsan Yacht Club marina, and tables are set out in a row along the quay. You get a little shade from the surrounding trees, the gentle clinking-and-clanking of the swaying sailing boats, and the company of some well-behaved cats. On the opposite side of the bay, you can watch the ferries and cruise ships sail in and out of Gruž Harbour.

Service: 

The helpful, friendly and unobtrusive staff will give you well-paced service.

Location: 

It's in the Orsan Yacht Club marina on Lapad peninsular, just a five-minute walk along the quay from Hotel Kazbek.

Price advice: 

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