Tucked under stone arches that face the port, Arsenal is a reliable, if touristy café, in a good location.

For an incredible fish lunch, Indagare contributor Elena Bowes recommends Gverovic Orsan in the Bay of Zotan. Founded in 1966, the seafood restaurant has been a favorite docking point for yachtsmen for decades. The charming, family-owned restaurant, which is housed in an ancient stone boat house, sits only seven miles west of Dubrovnik, so can be reached by road or by boat. There are a dozen or so wooden tables inside in the vaulted former store rooms, but most of the seating is out doors on a terrace with great views. Open from March to December, from noon to midnight.
The name of the beachfront restaurant at the Hotel Bellevue comes from the Croatian word for storm, but what it delivers is just the opposite: calm. On a stunning beachfront, diners can eat with their feet in the sand at linen-covered tables or on their loungers. Favorite dishes include grilled lobster and seafood skewers. The ultimate table is the one inside the Cave of Cingrija, which is a swim from the beach, but where you can order lunch to be delivered by a lifeguard. Open for lunch and dinner.
