This is a little hidden gem in the back streets of the Old Town, near the western side of the walls. Azur serves up great Mediterranean-Asian fusion meals. Like a shrimp pouch on roasted aubergine in coconut curry sauce. Its an absolute must to be here at sunset, although a great place to be anytime. The chefs at Azur source organically grown and locally sourced herbs & the fish and shellfish are sourced from local fishermen.
While the drinks may cost you a little more than your typical bar – it is very much worth the splurge to enjoy the atmosphere and views.

This is a vegetarian restaurant, that even carnivorous Croatian men go to without making a fuss. Nishta serves only 100% vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dishes. Its always fresh and tasty. With just a few tables, they are always busy so do plan ahead. Nishta is located in Dubrovnik’s Old Town, on the corner of Palmoticeva and Prijeko, off the Stradun. Best advice is head in, book your table and then head down the stairs, and have a pre dinner cocktail at D’Vino’s Wine Bar.

The drinks are expensive but, it’s an experience not to be missed. Finding the bar is half the adventure, you’ll need to head to the west wall behind the Cathedral. look for a small sign “Cold drinks-Beautiful View” it is a hole in the wall you will step through to the rocks outside the walls above the sea. While the sunset is magical here, it is what you’d call ‘rustic’, in that is has a port-a-potty toilet, but don’t let that stop you.
