Local’s Guide: Best Places To Eat, Drink And Stay In Dubrovnik, South Croatia

There are a lot of tourist traps in Dubrovnik, but there are a few gems. I go by what I believe is truly local; for example, Lady Pi-Pi in the Old Town. All its vegetables are from the Konavle valley, and the food is mainly grilled – very simple, good and tasty. It doesn’t have a website or Instagram, and doesn’t take reservations. There’s also Kopun in a wonderful setting by the Jesuit church, with a great wine list picked by its sommelier, Ana Bitanga. Its pašticada (braised beef) is a killer, and the truffle gnocchi is really good. I love the food markets in the old town and the much larger one in Gruž. It’s best to go early, about 8am, and you get to see all the seasonal changes in the produce.
