Expert review of Rozario

A small authentic Dalmatian eatery in the heart of Dubrovnik Old Town.

Known as Rozarij for many years, this popular little restaurant recently changed hands and is now known as Rozario. Although I normally avoid the restaurants on touristy Prijeko street, where waiters tout for unwitting clients, Rozario stands apart for its more genuine take on Dalmatian cuisine, which is why its popular with visitors and locals alike.

Food and drink: 

The menu features typical Dalmatian dishes, cooked just as the locals would eat them at home. Most people opt for the fresh fish (varying depending on the day’s catch) served whole and filleted at the table. It normally comes with delicious blitva sa krumpirom (potatoes and Swiss chard with garlic and olive oil) as a side dish. They also do good steaks.

Recommended dishes: 

The house speciality is steak Rozario (medallions of fillet steak in a sauce of dried figs, wine and honey).

Ambience: 

It's very intimate - the small terrace out front has just three tables, and a couple of flaming torches add atmosphere in the evening.

Service: 

The waiters are friendly, welcoming and informative.

Location: 

It's in the Old Town, at the Ploče Gate end of Prijeko.

Price advice: 

Prices very greatly depending on what you order – fish is priced by the kilo, so a big fish will obviously cost more. However, you can expect to pay in the region of 600 kuna for a two-course meal for two people, with wine.

Tables to book: 

Definitely ask to sit outside – the dining room is rather harshly lit and lacking in atmosphere.
