This Dubrovnik gem is a truly impressive place where the accommodating, cheerful and well-mannered staff will make ordering your preferred dish as pleasant as possible. But brace yourselves. The number of dishes to choose from is very diverse indeed. Given that this is a hotel restaurant we’re talking about, it’s only logical that all guests’ requirements need to be met. Consequentially, the menu and wine list are quite extensive.

Our dinner starts with a Pošip Skaramuča 2013, a house wine that make an ideal intro into the fish menu which is by no means superior to the meat selection. Home-made cream with vegetables and three types of oil with garlic, chilli and balsamic vinegar acts as a starter and you can choose from several very interesting soups, namely, avocado soup, asparagus soup, lobster soup or wild mushroom with cream and truffle oil to complete your entrée. The last soup is served only as part of a seven-course tasting menu with recommended wines originating from Istria to Pelješac. Somehow the dining room’s modern decor lulls you into the friendly atmosphere. There aren’t any over-the-top details, just minimalism catering to guests who came to enjoy the food.

Chef Saša Računica went to great lengths to make sure you have a hard time choosing your main course: if you’d care for fish, they have cod, gunard, seabass and John Dory fillets... You’ll definitely stop for a moment and think about how lobster served with young tender broad beans or mango cream with black rice and papaya would taste like.
The chef takes great pride in Rossini beef fillet that rounds off the meat menu. This delicious meat is roasted with prosciutto and cheese and finished off by truffles and Marsala, and then you also have some classical dishes, such as duck breast, rib eye steak and lamb shops... The wines take us on a journey across all of Croatia’s regions with Konavle, Pelješac and nearby islands taking centre stage, but you’ll also get a glimpse of the far side of the world.

They are proud to point out their desserts. The fact that they combine them with digestives really makes them stand out. Classical pastry and chocolate cakes, a one-of-a-kind rozata (traditional Dalmatian pudding) and sour cherry baklava served with The coffee cocktail or Mulata (rum, cream, coffee) is a surprise to make your day...

Soft jazz and reggae sounds emit from the loudspeakers, tourists from all over the world occupy the adjacent tables. Everything seems just right to the very last detail. The only problem is you can’t taste everything. Hey, Vapor, see you soon. Hats off to them!

Restaurant description:

Dubrovnik is an unforgettable experience in its own right, but if happen to get in the mood to have a bite, you’ll be amazed by the extreme diversity of dishes and types of cuisine. Vapor Restaurant definitely matches the description of a place oozing elegance and refinement, but with a certain modern aristocratic twist. It’s located on Lapad peninsula and is a stroll away from the city walls. This modern edifice with glazed windows won’t get your attention from the outside. But wait until you get inside...
