The Dolium (from the Roman word for a large earthernware vessel) is right on the waterfront in Cavtat. The name alludes to the fact that the restaurant is housed in an old building of supposedly Roman origin. It is fronted by three large semi-circular canopies outside, under which there are cafe'-style tables & chairs, where you can sit down and watch the sea & the boats while eating leisurely. It also has an inddor seating section, but this afternoon we preferred to sit outside & enjoy the view. Stands with pictures of the popular seafood dishes served here, and the persistent wooing of us by the pretty girl employee, made us choose this place from the many that dotted the waterfront !

We were all given English Menus, so ordering was easy. We ordered Greek Salad, Musule na Buzaru (a popular Croatian dish of Mussels in white wine with bread crumbs), Sitna przena(small fried fish), Svjezi file (fresh tenderloin filet), along with some Coke & Natural water. The mussels were really good & so was the fried fish.

Service was friendly, chatty in fact, and quite quick, even though there were many tourists dining then.

The meal came to around 100 kuna per head (euro13) all told, including our tip, somewhat high, but then this is in a high footfall location on the waterfront.

Good food & a great view !
