Description: Pantarul - feels like home. Our intention is for everyone to feel welcome and for each palate to be satisfied. A snack with a glass of local wine or a several-course dinner which will make all your senses flick? Top quality, yet unpretentious food - modern cuisine at its best. Our menu lives with the seasons and all the dishes are prepared using incredible local produce which is sourced by farmers from Dubrovnik's surroundings, especially from Zupa and Konavle. Fresh fish is delivered daily and the meat comes from the most reliable sources. Homemade pasta and bread, a creative wine list featuring Croatian wines and an honest smile on the waiters' faces - this is what we look for in a restaurant ourselves. Once you're done enjoying the meal, you can flip through the restaurant cookbook - a 320-page edition full of photos, stories and traditional Dubrovnik recipes.

This restaurant has a great chef, producing great food , served by a knowledgeable, friendly staff! Get reservations in advance! The menu changes four times a year, but I can’t imagine that each season would not be as wonderful as the next! My husband and I shared two starters: Spring rolls and Pam seared four gras! Amazing! I ate the spaghettini with sweetbreads—unique and delicious! My husband had the fresh fish (tuna) with Dalmatian -style vegetables! He loved it! We also ordered two desserts: the almond brittle and Caramel sauce semifreddo and gluten-free white chocolate and almond cake with vanilla cream—sublime! Don’t miss!

Extremely pleasantly surprised. Food here is on a completely different level, definitely one of the best restaurants in Dubrovnik.
All of the dishes were wonderfully prepared and the flavors were perfectly balanced. Price and quality ratio are also well balanced.
Wine measures are a bit modest (0,1l) but the wine selection is carefully selected and filled with high quality wines (all can be ordered by glass!).
The staff was very attentive, and interior pleasant. But the food itself was AMAZING! Keep up what you are doing, this restaurant is exactly what Dubrovnik needs.
Go here, you definitely won't regret it.

I have been in this fantastic restaurant twice during my vacation in Dubrovnik. The first time i ate fish dishes, the second time meat. All perfect, from the service and the quality of the food, to the bill.

Thank you!

Building a modern cuisine on a traditional foundation can deliver exceptional results. Pantarul has had this ambition from the beginning and they have worked hard to make it a success. It’s one of the few places where we found quality in a relaxed atmosphere where you can feel that people love their gastronomic mission (and not just the business). The menu offers quite an unusual mix of dishes – catering to different customer groups – and a good, yet simple, wine list.

Our starter (goat cheese quiche) was actually a bad start as it did not represent the quality that arrived later. The foie gras was creatively combined with apple, crusty bread and more. My fish course was also excellent and whatever we saw or had at our or the other tables was or looked fabulous. The price justifies the food although the ambience could be a bit more ‘quality’ – but okay, I understand they don’t want to risk becoming pretentious. So this way is actually better for them.

We were celebrating a special occasion, while on vacation in Dubrovnik. We found this restaurant and blindly made a reservation based on the reviews. When the uber driver came to pick us up he said "do you have a reservation, if not its very hard to get a table." Lucky for is we did have a reservation.
The restaurant is casual yet elegant. Don't expect white linen tablecloths, the restaurant has placemats over wood tables. Since we were celebrating a special occasion they had a lovely card on our table that said "Today is a BIG day- Best Wishes!" Very nice touch to start a lovely dinner feeling special.
We liked the casual, comfortable yet stylish feel. They offered a wonderful pairing menu, that unfortunately we did not take as we opted for picking straight from the menu. Every dish that we picked was wonderful. Starting with a pumpkin soup, steak tartare ( that was better then the ones I had in France), and duck pate...that was just to start. And everything was delicious!
As an entree we had a wonderful braised beef and a dish of homemade gnocchi with venison! Again, all delicious.
The service was respectful, on point and yet warm and friendly. They really do things right at Pantarul! Fabulous dinner, would definitely recommend if in Dubrovnik.
