Japanese
During the first 15 years of our successful business we were recognized as leading Japanese & fusion restaurant in the region. The business tradition and high standards of work resulted in winning numerous awards and led us to opening of our second Takenoko restaurant - this time in one of the most popular Mediterranean tourist destinations - the beautiful city of Dubrovnik. Takenoko Dubrovnik has settled in front of the impressive City Walls. A designer interior combined with a beautiful terrace overlooking the Old city’s harbor and the island of Lokrum makes it an exceptional place to be. Our chef Mario Starman , a well known name in Croatian culinary scene, created new and improved menu which truly represents Japanese and Mediterranean fusion cuisine.

I would recommend this restaurant only if you have a craving for something different than the Mediterranean cuisine at most restaurants in Dubrovnik. The setting is lovely and the service was very good. The sashimi was fresh, good enough for a nice meal but not special compared to the price. The gin and tonic with hibiscus was special, though, very refreshing.

My friend and I had an incredible dinner here. The service was outstanding - it was our first time in Croatia and they told us a lot about the history of Dubrovnik AND made amazing food suggestions. We absolutely loved it and will definitely go back if we return to Dubrovnik! The restaurant is gorgeous as well.

Exceptional place, great food, but short staffed with only two waiters for the entire terrace area in prime summer. Otherwise, it would have been 5-stars.

We dined at Takenoko on our recent holiday in Dubrovnik. Wonderful restaurant. Food was delicious. We had sashimi, a seafood wok dish with noodles and also had the salmon with sweet potato. They do everything really well here - food, service and great wine from Istria. Final point - amazing view can be enjoyed from the outdoor terrace. Highly recommend!

I'm very happy we chose this restaurant for a birthday dinner. Black cod and salmon fillet were a perfect choice. View is fantastic and staff is very nice and friendly. I hope there will be more occasions where we can come here and enjoy ourselfs and I'm looking forward for those situations.

I went here with a friend. We had a bunch of nigiris, I liked unagi one the most. Takenoko summer cocktail was really good and waiters were pretty friendly. I would love to dine here again as soon as possible.

I visited this place with my partner on a recommendation. Not gonna lie, it was possibly the best recommendation someone has ever given me. They treat you like the most important figure in the country, atmosphere is very nice and the food is fantastic. Whole experience is pretty wonderful. Amazing.

Visiting Dubrovnik for one night only .... not ta good choice restaurant...
Too pricy for not high-quality food.
Unfortunately, the only good thing is the location and the view of the old city.

Gran lugar para comer en pareja, de negocios, o con amigos (siempre y cuando no sean muy ruidosos).

UBICACIÓN

Restaurante ubicado justo afuera de la puerta Ploče, se encuentra en una terraza sobre la tienda de Kawa con vista a la ciudad vieja de Dubrovnik.

ATENCIÓN

Tanto la hostess como el mesero fueron muy atentos y amables, el mesero nos dió buenas recomendaciones de comida y siempre estuvo atento de la mesa para que no nos hiciera falta nada, su nivel de inglés es bueno.

COMIDA

La comida desde la entrada, plato fuerte, y postre tuvieron muy buen sabor, textura, y temperatura, en cuanto a las porciones tienden a ser pequeñas lo cual es normal en un restaurante del nivel.

La entrada de Gyozas y Unagi muy buenas en especial el Unagi que a pesar de ser pequeña la entrada tiene una suavidad y un sabor inigualable.

El bacalao con salsa de naranja fue particularmente sabroso, fue cocinado a la perfección y la salsa de naranja combinaba muy bien con el sabor del pescado.

En cuanto a postres el Matcha Lava Cake tiene un sabor fuerte y puede ser empalagoso por lo que solo lo recomiendo a la gente que le guste mucho el chocolate, en cambio el Panna Cota tiene un sabor balanceado y muy agradable, de los postres que comimos fue sin duda el ganador.

COSTO

El costo es lo que uno espera de este tipo de restaurantes aproximadamente si pides entrada, plato fuerte, postre, y 2 bebidas el total oscilará las $600 kunas por persona (€80).

I was here with my husband and I have to thank everyone here for taking such a good care of us. Someone was always there ready to help us, everyone was very pleasant towards us, food was fantastic. We both had tempura moriawase, it was superbly made. Service was excellent as I already stated. Looking forward for our next visit.

I've been here with a friend during our visit to Dubrovnik. It is an amazing place, great for a romantic dinner so I can't wait to bring my girlfriend here. We ordered salmon and hamachi sashimi, and black cod for our main. Our waiter was extremely helpful in our meal choice and he was super friendly. It was a completely amazing dinner

Eating here was one of the best decisions we ever made on a journey. Our meal was perfectly prepared and served by the amazing waiter. Spring rolls for apetizers and tori teriyaki for our main were absolutely a great combination for us. There were quite a few people in there but the noise levels were minimum. Amazing place, definitely

I was here with my parents while visiting our relatives. They recommended this place to us. They sure know how to pick a restaurant. Very nice and polite waiters, also very professional and well trained for the job, top notch service and very delicious food. I liked Japanese kobe beef steak the most and so did my parents. They deserve more than 5 stars.

Best restaurant in Dubrovnik. Very professional staff and well versed in their profession. They speak english very well. Food is out of this world, especially salmon sashimi. They have the best lava cake I have ever tried in all the restaurants I visited. This looks like great place to have a nice, romantic dinner with my girlfriend for our anniversary so we'll be seeing each other once again very soon.

It was really an outstanding dinner for me and my girlfriend. Staff was wonderful and very knowledgeable about what goes good with what. Scenery was beautiful and it made our salmon fillet, which was already perfect as it was, even more enjoyable. Great cocktail and gin collection. Looking forward for the next meal. Thank you for this unforgettable night.

Excellent place for a business dinner to impress a client. Very professional yet friendly staff with exemplary service. I had probably the tastiest black cod in my entire life here and panna cotta for dessert after that was just the thing I needed. All in all, this is a really nice restaurant that is worth visiting and then re-visiting again and again and again.

Great place for anniversary dinner with my girlfriend. Reservations are easy to make, waiters are all professionals , at least our was. They have a good collection of cocktails, gin-tonic is my personal favorite. Our waiter recommended us salmon fillet, it was his favorite meal there so we decided to try it. It was very well prepared and we really enjoyed it so thank you for that.

If you like sushi this is definitely a place you have to visit. I had a birthday party here with few of my closest friends. They offer awesome drinks such as amaretto or gin tonic. Few of my friends loved rokkan sushi and I also gave it a shot, it was wonderful. I haven't eaten something that good in a long time. And the kaiso salad was perfect. If you are in Dubrovnik, definitely try it

Absolutely tremendous restaurant. Amazing sushi and highly delicious as well. I think there is no better place for you to try sushi if you crave for it than this place. They also have very delicious spring rolls that are their specialty of the house. They are making them from beginning of the restaurant as the waiter said, and they are amazing.
