KONAVOSKI DVORI ECO GREEN RESTAURANT

KONAVOSKI DVORI ECO GREEN RESTAURANT

When you visit Konavoski Dvori Eco Green Restaurant, nestled in a laurel forest and right next to the Ljuta River, you enter an oasis of peace and beauty. Proud of our heritage, we celebrate good food and an authentic culinary experience while keeping pace with the latest trends.

The waitresses dressed in the Konavle region’s traditional attire majestically showcase all of the splendor, wealth, and value of the local cultural heritage painstakingly created by generations of diligent people.

Konavoski Dvori Eco Green Restaurant was established in 1968 and entirely renovated in 2021 while retaining an inspiringly magical and romantic atmosphere. Against the backdrop of the heady laurel aroma, the restful burbling of the nearby stream, and the slowly rotating old mills, where time itself seems to have stopped, you can try dishes prepared with the same passion nurtured by our grandmothers. Mainly local and eco-friendly ingredients are used in our kitchen, where the bread as well as lamb, veal, and octopus are baked under an iron bell covered with hot coals, while the trout is grilled. The traditional dishes of all Croatian regions are served here, and you can wash it all down with the finest wines from local wineries, as Konavle is also renowned for its wine-growing.

*Due to the intricacy of preparation, orders for specialties made under an iron bell (lamb, veal, octopus) must be placed at least three hours in advance.

 

 

KOPUN

The team of Kopun restaurant takes great pride in their efforts to bring back some of the old Croatian recipes handed down through centuries. Their signature dish is Kopun or Capon, a castrated rooster, which is bred exclusively for meat. They have highly valued delicacies in traditional cuisine all across Europe. A perfect place to explore Croatian national cuisine and try something truly authentic. 

 

BISTRO REVELIN

Relaxed gourmet heaven near the Ploče Gate, the Eastern entrance to the Old Town, welcomes you from the earliest hours. Apart from the great food and fine wine list, the location is absolutely breathtaking. The menu fuses local ingredients bravely with globally popular culinary ingredients. We definitely recommend coming here for breakfast or brunch while enjoying the Old City port view. 

 

BISTRO TAVULIN

Recommended in Michelin guide for 3 years in a row, this family-owned restaurant is definitely something you don’t want to miss while in Dubrovnik. It offers some classic Croatian dishes, but their chef is always making some new and exciting innovations on the menu, using only seasonal products, authentic and local ingredients. As already mentioned in the Michelin guide,  the set four-course Dubrovnik Dinner is a real “steal”.
