The best restaurant in Dubrovnik is on the Adriatic Road, on the sea in Zaton Mali. Just 7 kilometers west of Dubrovnik you will discover restaurant Gverovic – Orsan. Housed in a genuine, ancient orsan (Italian name meaning boat house) and built centuries ago. Rough, hand carved, and cut into the hillside like a cave. Orsan was once the private storage place for small pleasure boats of a wealthy Renaissance nobleman.
Gverovic Orsan restaurant
Our Gverović family snatched it from the teeth of time. We delivered it to the discerning tastes of those acquainted with gastronomic delights. And transform it into a temple of an excellent repast. The restaurant opened its doors in 1966. And since then, it’s been known as the best seafood restaurant in the Dubrovnik area.
Modern Approach to Classic Mediterranean Cuisine
All meals we serve in our restaurant Gverovic-Orsan we cook and prepare in a traditional Dalmatian way. The same style our beloved Grandmothers used to cook meals for us. The house specialty of Gverovic-Orsan restaurant is the famous black risotto. Upon tasting it, you will immediately notice that this risotto stands apart from any you have experienced. Even Philip Rosenthal from “Somebody Feed Phil” can confirm that this is the best place to eat in Dubrovnik. And while you eat, you can enjoy the best sunset view.

What our guests say
The food was excellent and the staff very professional. We had amazing Croatian wine and seafood. The setting, on a terrace by the sea is great for a meal with friend or for a romantic dinner. seating directly on the water makes it the perfect location for an outside seating lunch or dinner, away from the buzzing Dubrovnik. Highly recommended.

Outdoor seating by the water with a stunning view and delicious food.. It’s not in the center of Dubrovnik, or the Old Town, but that is exactly what makes this place special and unique. Food didn’t disappoint us at all since we came here for their black risotto, which i recently read it’s their awarded dish among st Europe’s restaurants. Creamy and flavorful. I loved it!
ANTONIA J., Regular guest
What a fabulous spot for lunch with tables right by the water overlooking the secluded bay in Zaton. On a whim, having seen a short recommendation in our guide book, we braved two local buses to find this restaurant.
