You will fall in love with the beautiful Croatian south because of its natural beauty, pristine beaches, crystal clear sea, but also great food, wine and, most importantly, people who know how to enjoy life. The terrace of Galija tavern in Cavtat is the perfect example of this, not a place where you will come to fill up your stomach quickly, but the most pleasant place imaginable, where you can spend an evening of your vacation.

The relaxed atmosphere, lots of space, in the middle of a pine forest, far enough from the promenade and close enough to the sea to look at it, Galija is pure pleasure, especially because our cheerful, pleasant staff try to place this experience gastronomically on a pedestal. Therefore, you will only eat the freshest fish possible here, since the owner himself is a professional fisherman, which is something you can see for yourself, because of his ship, along with a couple of nets and hooks, is by the coast, always ready to go fishing. This means that the freshness and seasonal offer are guaranteed.

Any food will go down better with the live sounds of a piano played by a sophisticated pianist and the specialty of Galija tavern is that some dishes are served directly in front of the guests. Live action specialties include Flambé dishes, pasta with truffles in a cheese wheel, and definitely tuna tartare with spring onions on a bed of rocket, Dalmatian style. Of course, there are also the inevitable ravioli in sea urchin roe sauce, filled with lobster…

The 40-year long tradition is visible in the quality of service, with delicious and generous portions, and, besides the glorious fresh Adriatic swordfish on the grill, with fried rice and grilled vegetables, we cannot fail to mention the meat specialties (particularly steaks) because Galija has something for everyone. All the desserts and bread are made in the restaurant, so pay attention to the soft little bread that will delight you. Orange tiramisu and carob parfait are the top treats, made of local ingredients, which makes their taste and flavour even better. The wine card has about seventy titles, following the development of Konavle region wines closely, with the addition of excellent wines from the nearby Korčula and Pelješac regions, but also all of Croatia.

Galija gives people a place to rest and enjoy themselves, have long conversations through the night, watch the stars in the sky and experience an unforgettable gourmand show. It is a simple place, tailored for happy people, true hedonists who like long quality enjoyment in their food, wine, and life. You will wish to stay in Galija, so do not miss coming to Cavtat and recharging your batteries in a perfect way…
