From family lunches and business dinners to christening reception parties, communion and confirmation celebrations, restaurant Torcida witnesses it all. This family-run restaurant is all about respecting the tradition and the local which might be the reason why so many people love it and choose it to celebrate their most important life events at. Located in Donje Polje, just by the road, Torcida is famous for its roast lamb, the taste and smell of which will hardly leave anybody indifferent. They serve authentic Dalmatian food; Dalmatian prosciutto, sheep milk cheese and delicious home-made bread as appetizers, while among main dishes you may find a great variety of barbecue meat specialties. They offer only the best wines of Croatia, including one that they produce on their own following a secret family recipe.
Kopun serves meals that represent riveting Croatian history. They use over a hundred years old recipes, cherishing them and translating into the new modern way of cooking. Spices play a significant role in food preparation at Kopun as Dubrovnik was once one of the big Mediterranean trade centers. The meals are affordable but still competitive in comparison to other restaurants on Dubrovnik’s gastronomic scene. It can’t go without mentioning their specialty kopun, served with orzotto, butter-soft and delicious smelling of citruses and dry fruit. Ana Bitanga, a sommelier and owner, takes good care of the wine list on which you may find great local labels.
