What our guests are saying...
  • We had a lovely lunch here. Priced around the same as UK restaurants but food quality was the best we had during our stay in Croatia. Slight delay in serving although very friendly . Food is worth waiting for, exceptional quality. A beautiful setting and a bit more tranquil as it is at the end of the port in Cavtat.

  • Exceptionally nice place to eat and enjoy the ambient. Marvellous food. Often romantic live music in the evening.

  • We dined from one of the set menus. Gorgeous, freshly cooked 3 course meal at a very reasonable price. The waiter was efficient, pleasant and welcoming. It was so nice to be dining alfresco under the pine trees, overlooking the sea. Highly recommend this restaurant.

  • You wont be disappointed. The atmosphere is upscale, but relaxed and romantic. The food is fresh, the service is friendly and excellent. Don't pass up a chance to dine on the mussels! They were exquisite!

Taverna Galija

squirreled away among shady pine trees at the very end of the pier in Cavtat. It is 16 km south to Dubrovnik and 2 km out of the main road . This part of Croatia, for almost 150 km, is a narrow strip of land (10-15 km wide) between Bosnia Herzegovina and the Mediterranean.


The city was first a Greek colony named Epidaurus. Its inhabitants founded Cavtat in the 7th century on a location that provided them with better shelter. The city was later called Civitas vetus (the old city) by its former inhabitants. It is generally considered that Civitas vetus gave the name Cavtat, though there are several legends that give different etymologies.
