Do we really have to make a reservation?
Yes. We’d strongly advise you to book a table a few days in advance (especially if you’d like to come for dinner). This way you can avoid taking a walk all the way to the restaurant and leaving hungry. Just give us a call (+385 20 333 486) or drop us a line by e-mail ([email protected]) and we’ll have a table waiting for you. For same-day bookings kindly call by phone.
Can I book at 20.00 h? Why (not)?
From the end of April until the beginning of May we are only able to accept bookings at the following times: first sitting at 18.00 or 18.30 or second sitting at 21.15 or 21.30. As we only have 13 tables in the restaurant and many booking inquiries, having a fixed schedule allows us to welcome you stress-free and allows you plenty of time to fully enjoy your meal without feeling rushed.
Parties larger than 6 can sit in a separate dining area and those bookings are accepted at 19.30/20.00h.
Can we sit on the terrace/get a table with a view?
We do not have a terrace and therefore do not offer outdoor seating. However, our space is air-conditioned and we try hard to make up for the lack of a spectacular view with the food we serve.
How can I get to Pantarul from the Old Town?
You can either take a taxi from Pile Gate (the ride lasts approximately 5-10 minutes and should not cost more than 15 euros) or you can take the bus No 4 or No 6. If you take the bus No 4, get off at that Square 2 Stop. If you take the bus No 6, get off at the M. Bratosa Stop. The bus timetable can be found on the Dubrovnik Libertas website.
Is there a dress code?
No. Relax and wear the shoes that won’t give you sore feet.
What’s this about restaurant cookbooks you have on offer? Are they in English?
That’s our way of letting you take a piece of your trip home.
We have two cookbooks on offer: Pantarul at Home and What’s Cooking in Dubrovnik. Both are in English and available either in the restaurant or in our webshop.
Ideal foodie souvenirs – they both have metric and US measurements and cost 250 HRK. Flip through them to get an idea – you’ll always find copies on the bar.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, our books travel all over the world and we’re so happy when they find far-away homes.
Why are you closed on Mondays when everyone else is working?
Because we believe in doing business the right way – chefs too like to go for a swim from time to time. Pantarul is open all year long and having one day off is a guarantee that the food that ends up on your plate is prepared without stress and with maximum love and care.
Why is your name ‘Pantarul’? What does that mean?
In the Dubrovnik dialect ‘pantarul’ means ‘fork’. A simple word very dear to our hearts.
Is that coaster the whole menu? That’s it?
Yes. We love flipping through books (and even writing our own, as you’ll see from the restaurant cookbook we’ve prepared for you), but not through menus. As our menu changes with the seasons, we want to place emphasis on quality rather than quantity. With about twenty dishes to choose from, we are certain that everyone will find something to their liking.
Do you offer gluten-free/vegan/vegetarian options?
We are able to cater for food restrictions and we serve gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan dishes on a daily basis. Your waiter will inform you about your options on the spot.
Do you have a children’s menu?
While we do not have a dedicated children’s menu, we are more than happy to cater for your little ones.
Do you accept credit cards? Can we pay in euros?
We accept all major credit cards, but cash payments can only be made using the Croatian national currency, kuna.
