For many years, our family’s mission has been taking care of guests and providing exceptional service. Locally, the first thing that pops to someone’s mind when mentioning the name orka is the café bar with almost cult status. Foreign visitors will associate this word to their vacation in Dubrovnik and apartments that provide perfect peace and the possibility to relax from city’s hustle and bustle.
In the constant desire for development and improvement, we decided to add a new dimension to our life commitment – a restaurant which will focus on local ingredients and excellent Croatian wines, with caring, warm approach to guests in a beautiful setting of a 16th century family owned summer villa.
Lapadska obala, the location of our restaurant, is abundant in historical summer villas. Dubrovnik’s nobility highly appreciated the peace of this area together with relaxing views of the surrounding sea and greenness. We hope that you will please your senses with carefully selected dishes accompanied by fine wines, and experience the enjoyment our restaurant provides.
Simple and genuine flavors were the two things we aimed at when creating our menu. Spearheaded by Zdravko Tomšić, a brilliant chef known for the creativity of his cuisine, we have tried to present you a modern interpretation of fresh, local ingredients. Our bread is freshly baked every day. Our pastas are handmade. Our fish is fresh and the meat is of high quality. We use all the benefits and techniques of modern cuisine in order to present the ingredients in the best possible way. Take a look at our menu, visit us and see for yourself.
When creating our wine list, we tried to give you a gist of all the richness and diversity of Croatia. Along with inevitable flavor characteristics of local varieties rukatac, pošip, dubrovačka malvasija, grk and plavac mali, we played with a selection of indigenous varieties from other Croatian regions as well as fabulous renditions of international varieties. From lighter, crisp wines of continental regions, to powerful and robust wines of the south, we will be pleased to recommend you an ideal pairing which will additionally emphasize the harmony with our dishes.
