The Fish Restaurant Proto,

established in 1886, is located in the heart of Dubrovnik's historical
core at the intersection of the Široka and Vara streets.

The long tradition of this popular Dubrovnik restaurant attests to its reputation and lasting quality based on its unparalleled preparation of diverse seafood and meat dishes.

Proto's gourmet menu is inspired by indigenous dishes and the culinary artistry of Dubrovnik's aristocratic and commoner families, passed down from one generation to the next. Our top local chefs add a touch of contemporary culinary trends to traditional recipes.

Proto Fish Restaurant:
"This long-standing, family-owned fish and seafood restaurant in the heart of the Old City has a loyal local following and attracts many foreign visitors too. Those in the know head to the lovely hidden roof terrace to enjoy the carefully prepared seasonal Mediterranean dishes; go for the catch of the day."

The Michelin Plate: good cooking
Fresh ingredients, capably prepared: simply a good meal.
Good standard.

Refined gourmet connoisseurs believe the restaurant's lure and distinctiveness arise from the variety of seafood on offer which depends on the weather and catch.

The menu depends exclusively on the daily availability of fresh ingredients.

Our friendly staff is always willing to explain every detail on the menu, filet the fish for guests less skilled in deboning, and often serve as promoters of national cuisine, in particular the Mediterranean cuisine with which they are most familiar.

Along with seafood, Proto offers organic vegetables with genuine, long forgotten flavours, grown in the gardens of Župa Dubrovačka, several rural homesteads in Konavle, and on the nearby islands.
The Fish Restaurant Proto takes pride in its tradition and the dignitaries it has hosted, including King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson, and many star actors, musicians and entertainers who participated in the Dubrovnik Summer Festival while staying at Dubrovnik's luxury hotels.

seafood restaurant in the Old City.
