Fodor's Expert Review Proto
Located right in the heart of the Old Town, longstanding Dubrovnik institution Proto dates back to 1886 and most locals will respectfully acknowledge that it's still one of the best in town. It has hosted everyone from King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson to modern-day celebs and sports figures who come to try its menu of reliably prepared traditional Dalmatian dishes using simple local ingredients and premium local seafood such as lobster and shrimp. Opt for the five-course tasting menu, which includes the catch of the day, or choose from the à la carte menu; the seafood platter for two is an excellent choice.
