"The best value for money in Dubrovnik old town"

We hosted a private group dinner at Marco Polo Restaurant and it was a meal that is sure to remain in the memory of everyone who experienced it. First off, Iva and her team are amazingly attentive to their customers, and the food that they served was exceptional. The portion sizes were massive and our wine glasses were never dry. The restaurant is very quaint, and the perfect setting for an intimate small group dinner. The majority of their seating is outdoors, and for our group this proved to be rather… entertaining.

I have been eating and organizing small group events in restaurant Marco Polo in the Dubrovnik Old town for 5 years now and all I can say is that it went beyond my expectations each time. Extraordinary service, well educated staff, excellent and nice looking food on a plate, wide choice of Croatian wine! It is a real small hidden gem! Try it!

When we started with our Eat and Walk tour in Dubrovnik Old Town it wasn't easy to find a loyal partner in business who shares the same passion for local and delicious food as we do. Luckily after a long search, we found a true gem among all other restaurants that serve the same dishes for ages. The food that is consistently high quality and the friendly staff are the reasons why we always come back again with our guests who enjoy discovering local recipes and of course Croatian wines. If you want to be sure that everything will go down well Marco Polo is a very good choice.
