Top 3 Dubrovnik Restaurants for Valentine’s Day
Taj Mahal in Hotel Lero
The two iconic Bosnian restaurants in Dubrovnik, Taj Mahal, offers two different menus and their restaurants for the most starry-eyed time of the year. In the Old City of Dubrovnik, the restaurant offers an intimate and cosy atmosphere with friendly staff and most importantly, really great food.

Always a great fare at Taj Mahal
The menu in the Old City Taj Mahal is –
Goat cheese and dry curd cottage cheese tart (with caramelised onions and thyme) Rabbit roll (with spinach and bean puree) Chocolate coconut brownie (with strawberries)
Traditional cuisine with a twist – perfectly sums up the creation and passion that makes Dalmatino the “go to” eatery in Dubrovnik. Over the years the restaurant has built up a reputation as the leading spot for imaginative yet classic cuisine and this year they have moved to a new premises which will offer more diners the chance to taste their fare. Dalmatino has put together a stunning menu for Valentine’s Day and should certainly be on your wish list for this romantic day.
