The best Budget places to eat and drink in Dubrovnik

Cave Bar More

⭐Customer Rating: 4/5
💰Cost: $$
🎟️Reservations: Walk-in only 

One of the best places to eat and drink in Dubrovnik is Cave Bar More (well, more so drinking than eating).

If you want to sip your favourite cocktail in a unique location, then Cave Bar More is the place to go.

This unique, natural cave was uncovered during the construction of a Hotel (Hotel More) and extends over 3 levels.

Not a fan of caves? Don’t fear, you can simply head up to the beach area on-site and enjoy your drinks from there.

Barba is one of Dubrovnik’s best fast-food restaurants.

Now you can get the image of greasy McDonald’s burgers out of your head because Barba is far from your typical fast-food restaurant.

All food is made to order from fresh and local ingredients.

I can personally recommend the octopus burger.

The queues outside Barba speak for themselves and it’s the perfect option if you want an early night or don’t fancy getting dressed up to go out.

TuttoBene Pizzeria

⭐Customer Rating: 4.5/5
💰Cost: $
🎟️Reservations: Accepted

TuttoBene Pizzeria is a favourite fast food joint in Dubrovnik.

They have 3 locations around the city with their Lapad Bay branch being the most famous.

TuttoBene is not just popular for its pizzas but also for its very hearty and filling burgers.

This is a great option for those with families as their wide range of pizzas, burgers, wraps and salads are sure to please all members of the family.

Buza & Buza II

⭐Customer Rating: 3/5
💰Cost: $$
🎟️Reservations: Walk-in only 

Buza and Buza II are two of the best bars in Dubrovnik.

Located on the edge of the cliff with panoramic views of the sea, they are the perfect places to enjoy some beers, wines and cocktails whilst watching the waves crash against the rocks. 

These bars have been made popular due to their location and Adriatic sea views, so don’t expect anything too classy.

The best Mid-Range places to eat and drink in Dubrovnik

Panorama Restaurant and Bar

⭐Customer Rating: 5/5
💰Cost: $$-$$$
🎟️Reservations: Accepted

Panorama restaurant is located at the top of Mount Srd, which just so happens to be one of the best sunset viewing spots in Dubrovnik.

The view from Panorama also overlooks Lokrum, Lapad Bay and the Elaphiti Islands.

On the menu, you can find gourmet sandwiches, salads and burgers for lunch and an array of meats and seafood for dinner, plus lots of other options like traditional risotto and cold plates of cheese and carpaccio.

If you want to make the journey to Panorama extra special you can catch a cable car up here (or if you prefer to keep things simple Uber/taxi is an option too).


⭐Customer Rating: 4/5
💰Cost: $$-$$$
🎟️Reservations: Accepted (and strongly recommended)

If you’re looking to spice things up a little then Azur is one of the best places to eat and drink in Dubrovnik where you can do that.

The restaurant is an Asian fusion, combining Mediterranean dishes with Asian cuisine.

It has a small, but carefully curated menu that gets top ratings from all who visit.

D’vino Wine Bar

⭐Customer Rating: 4/5
💰Cost: $$-$$$
🎟️Reservations: Accepted

With a mix of traditional Croatian wines, to wines imported from across the globe, D’vino is sure to have a wine to suit your palette.

This is one of the best bars in Dubrovnik to come for a post-lunch or dinner drink.


⭐Customer Rating: 4/5
💰Cost: $$-$$$
🎟️Reservations: Accepted up until 20:00 

Although Tavulin is aimed at tourists, it offers much more than your typical bistro.

This is a family-run restaurant located in the heart of Dubrovnik’s Old Town.

Finding itself on the Michelin guide, this restaurant prides itself on creating traditional Croatian dishes (with a modern spin) using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients.

If it’s on the menu, go for the seabass and risotto (to die for).


⭐Customer Rating: 4/5
💰Cost: $$-$$$
🎟️Reservations: Accepted

Dalmatino is another restaurant that focuses on traditional Croatian Dishes with a modern twist.

At Dalmatino they use fresh, local and seasonal produce, with a heavy focus on meat and fish.

With that being said, it’s probably not the most vegetarian and vegan-friendly restaurant in Dubrovnik.

Need a dish recommendation? Go for the seared tuna steak with salad. 

The Bar

⭐Customer Rating: 4/5
💰Cost: $$-$$$
🎟️Reservations: Walk-in only 

Like strawberry cheesecake, and cocktails?

Well, you need to head to The Bar immediately for one of their (yep you guessed it) strawberry cheesecake cocktails.

Of course, they offer more cocktails, from classic favourites to slightly niched flavours – there is something for everyone and is a great place to come for some after-dinner drinks.

So whilst this isn’t one of the best places to eat, it certainly is one of the best places to eat in Dubrovnik.

Nautika Restaurant

⭐Customer Rating: 5/5
💰Cost: $$$$
🎟️Reservations: Accepted (and strongly recommended)

For the ultimate dining experience head to Nautika.

This Michelin Guide-listed restaurant has been voted “Sixth most romantic restaurant in the world” by Condé Nast Traveller and has a menu to die for.

At Nautika its ingredients list flows of the seasons, which means their menus are always changing.

They are big on blending tradition, quality, and creativity to whip up a hot take on Mediterranean cuisine.

You can choose from a 5 or 7-course tasting menu, or choose to go a la carte if you prefer.

If Nautika is a little out of your budget they have 3 cheaper sister restaurants in Dubrovnik which are Gradska Kavana Arsenal, Panorama Restaurant and Bar and Dubravka 1836 Restaurant & Cafe.

Fish Restaurant Proto

⭐Customer Rating: 5/5
💰Cost: $$$$
🎟️Reservations: Accepted (and strongly recommended)

My personal favourite of the best places to eat and drink in Dubrovnik is Fish Restaurant Proto.

As you’ve probably guessed from the name this place specialises in seafood.

Here you can find delicious oysters, lobster and whole fresh fish on the menu.

These are paired with luxurious wines which are handpicked by restaurant sommeliers.

The food here is so incredible this restaurant is a hit with celebrities (they even have a TV set up with a slideshow displaying all the celebrities that have eaten here in the past).

When you book your table be sure to request a table on the first floor, for the best views and overall ambience.
