The founder, French-born Gilles Camilleri, changes the menu annually. Described as modern French fusion cuisine, summer 2010 saw dishes such as chicken and cardamom soup; sea bream stuffed with truffle risotto; grilled turbot with morel mushrooms; and slow-cooked lamb fillet with smoked feta and hummus. The wine list is a treat, provided you have the money to foot the bill.

The setting is truly impressive. Dubrovnik’s rough hewn stonework is bathed in a curious purple light and played off against trendy white minimalist designer furniture and mauve and lilac scatter cushions. There’s also a Pop Lounge serving cocktails and chill-out music to a glamorous clientele. And you get fantastic views over the harbour. Divine.
The waiters are attentive and accommodating.
Within the ramparts of the medieval town walls, it's one minute from Ploče Gate, overlooking the old harbour.
Some people say it's overpriced, though the majority of the types who come here probably wouldn’t notice. Expect to pay around 1300 kuna (approx £150) for a three-course dinner for two people, with wine. Note that the wines can be shockingly expensive.
