What to Eat in Dubrovnik

Naturally, a city on the sea is going to serve a lot of seafood and the region's chefs love to showcase the fresh catches of the day. Mussels, tuna, squid ink risotto and more are staples at many restaurants. Other local specialties include oysters from Mali Ston (a village on Croatia's coast), smoked ham, cheese soaked in oil, octopus salad, zelena menestra (smoked salted pork and cabbage stew), sporchi macaroni (stewed veal chunks and spices), fried sprats and grilled sardines. The best-known wines of the Dubrovnik region include reds from the Pelješac Peninsula and for whites, Pošip from Korcula. Try them all in a flight at D'vino, a popular wine bar in the Old City.

For Mediterranean dishes with a side of unforgettable views, consider making a reservation at the Above 5 Rooftop Restaurant at the Hotel Stari Grad. You'll pay a pretty penny for a table, but according to recent visitors, the views and the food are worth it. For an equally atmospheric meal that's heavy on seafood, head to Proto, which sits in the heart of old town. If you're on a tight budget but still itching to try some local seafood, Barba earns rave reviews for its "gourmet fast food" (think: octopus burgers). And when you need a break from the Dalmatian diet, consider Azur, which describes its "CroAsian" menu as Mediterranean with an Asian twist.
