Posat, a fish restaurant that takes great pride in its fish and lobster tanks, offers a fantastic sea-infused story for just about any tourist and traveller. It’s located literally fifty metres from the main entrance to the Old Town with a view of the towers, walls and smiling tourists passing by. Posat straddles two levels. The first one is on the terrace next to the parking, while the upstairs one is pleasant, decent and has a million-dollar view. You’re in a centuries-old location where everything oozes serenity and an aristocratic vibe so it’s only natural that the food is the same. And off we went...

For starters, they’re right to brag about their appetizers based on traditional poor man’s food with a modern yet not too modern twist. That means that every dish listed on the menu has a dash of gravity and character, which is truly commendable. Juvenile fish with a marinated courgette is the first thing that’ll make you fall in love with this place and it’s served with tuna tartare with balsamic vinegar beads on a broad bean foam, with courgette carpaccio and cuttlefish ink paste. Malvasia Tezoro 2017 from Dubrovnik is the ideal companion to coarsely chopped Adriatic tuna meat kicked up by the light acidity of both the paste and beads with a slightly piquant finish. Wicked.

All the pasta and ravioli are made in the restaurant, while the Adriatic fish has a particular taste because it’s prepared in a wood-fired oven. A sight to remember is when a pleasant and well-mannered brings the day’s fish selection on a platter your way and invites you to take a stroll with him to the pool and choose your meal for the day. Naturally, they also offer beefsteaks, lamb chops, pork fillet and chicken breast. Still, John Dory, sea bream and dentex take precedence here.

The homemade olive oil stem from the island of Brač, while you’ll find regular white, corn and black bread with cuttlefish ink on your table. Finally it was time for the main course, homarus a la buzara, homemade green pasta and šalša. A carved tomato shaped like a rose only serves as a decoration, while the 2016 Merlot Negromat, a pungent and strong wine, makes an ideal selection to tone down the fatty and strong, almost magnificent buzara that harks back to your childhood and chatting with local fishermen that came back having spent days at sea catching fish. It truly is like in the old days! We anticipated a more modern approach and much lighter nuances, but this dish is exactly as it’s supposed to be.

Come dessert time, you have caramelised figs on a quark cheese cream, but there’s plenty of other delicacies that mostly hinge on seasonal fruit grown in the region.

Centuries captured in the moment, a combination of poor man’s food and a modern interior, phenomenal dishes at their freshest and local wines place Posat at the very apex of what Dubrovnik has to offer. An extremely positive experience with a professional crew and a reminder that we’re always more than happy to come back.
