We have been to Ragusa on many occasions, held functions there and loved it but something has drastically changed for the worst. We took some friends for dinner last Saturday night and were told that we would have to wait over an hour for our meals as they had a function so we tried to pick entres and mains that... More

Went here for lunch on my last day in Melbourne. Great location just in the centre of the atmospheric Williamstown. The restaurant decor is somewhat bland though and it could definitely have more Croatian look. An Italian waiter who served me was very very friendly. I ordered some stuffed calamari with cooked chard. It was tasty but for a big... More

It's my favourite local restaurant. I'm fussy, I love food that is simple, fresh and delicious. I go back to Ragusa regularly because it ticks those three boxes. Ragusa's menu draws from Croatian cuisine with lots of seafood dishes as well as some traditional Croatian favourites. I go there for the seafood. Here's my top three: Fresh mussels cooked in...

The food is traditional Croatia and is excellent. I found the service too slow waited too long for our meals

We are locals who have frequently enjoyed the authentic Indian food at Ragusa. The menu is extensive and offers a variety if banquets. The prices are very reasonable. The curries are tasty and plentiful. The service was good and the owners are keen to serve. They also offer take away and free delivery.

Our favourite restaurant, great food selection, food & service are always consistently great. We both had the roast pork belly today which was fantastic as always. Entrees and dessert were also delicious.

Nice restaurant! Nice place to spend the evening at after dining. A great Croatian cuisine restaurant a must try, in the Entree section, the "Rižoto od riječnih rakova – it's a fresh Yabby risotto!! It's really good! And also very traditional dish the main "Sarma" a traditionally braised beef and pork filled sauerkraut very yummy!

Being Croatian myself I had grown up around almost everything on the menu being cooked from my Didi and baba so I was very curious how it would match up. Let me tell you, I know where I will be eating every time I now visit Melbourne at all! I could not fault a single dish if I wanted to!... More
