Description: Restaurant Gverovic-Orsan has a very long tradition. It is housed in a genuine, ancient orsan (Italian name meaning boat house). Built centuries ago, by being hand carved and cut into the hillside like a cave, Orsan was once the private storage place for small boats of a wealthy Renaissance nobleman. ​ The Gverovic family acquired it to deliver exceptional experience to those acquainted with gastronomic delights, and transformed it into a temple of excellent repast. The restaurant opend its doors in 1966, and since than it has been known as the place which provides the best quality seafood in Dubrovnik area. ​

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.

The best meal we had in Dubrovnik was at Gverovic Orsan. The restaurant is next to the sea and the atmosphere is amazing. The stuff are very friendly and not pretentious at all. We ordered grilled sea bass that was really fresh and tasty. Highly recommended place if you are in Dubrovnik.

One of the best ways to enjoy beginning of the summer is dining at a spot where the scenery is as fine as what’s on the plate. We tasted the famous black risotto, I know it looks strange, black colored food is rare in nature, but here it is popular seafood dish made with addition of squid ink. If you are at Dalmatian coast of Croatia, and want to try out some quality and fresh seafood, this is a place to go to. The staff is very charming and welcoming, and the ambient will make your overall divine experience.

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 amongst Europe's restaurants. Creamy and flavorful. I loved it!
