Last week I spent a glorious seven days in Croatia. Having never been to Dubrovnik old town (or anywhere else in Croatia for that matter!) I was not expecting to see such beautiful, old architecture and marble cobbled streets. It felt like being transported to a medieval world, untouched by the hands of time.
Thanks to my clever boyfriend, we visited a few beautiful spots that I thought I would share with you. So here goes
- Above 5
This is a gorgeous rooftop restaurant, at the top of the hotel itself. The seating area is teeny tiny but every table benefits from an incredible view of the Old Town. Whilst sat sipping a mojito, the horizon was like a sea of terracotta tiles. We only stopped here for drinks in the mid-afternoon so I can’t comment on the food but I’m sure this would be a romantic spot for dinner or a lazy breakfast.
2. Restaurant Orsen
Restaurant Orsen, located on Lapad peninsula in the Orsan marina, was idyllic. We were seated just next to the harbour. As the sun went down, the lights from the town bounced off the water and provided the perfect atmosphere. The whole setting was complemented by live musicians playing as we ate. We had an amuse bouche of tuna pate and a seafood platter to start. As a self-confessed sea-food phobic, I was apprehensive. But everything was delicious. I even devoured a seafood tagliatelle which was to die for. Rave review, would definitely recommend this little jewel by the water.
3. Café Buza
This hidden café is perched on the edge of the cliffs, overlooking the ocean. It is perfect for admiring the views whilst sipping a cold drink. Although out of the way, it was worth walking a little further to find. From this café, you can see adventurous souls jumping off the cliffs and diving into the water below. If you have the nerves for it, it’s a great spot to watch or to psyche yourself up for the plunge!
Happy eating! xoxo
