love it! - Edit

I love this place so much I've found myself scheduling my day around its opening hours and busy times. Definitely make a booking if you enjoy your first time here. I went for lunch at about 11:50am and got a seat no problem but as people passed and saw our meals they stopped in and before I was finished the place was full. I went for dinner the same day and couldn't get in. I couldn't book either because it was already about 8:30 and full!! In all honesty, I don't think people realise it's a vegan restaurant and they will sit down if they like the look of your food and as they did today, if already packed, they will reserve a table for use within the next hour or half hour, depending on how busy they are. As I was eating lunch today, 6 tables were reserved (for later) within half an hour with a 1 hour wait time. The salad bar is the best salad bar I've seen! And it's so good knowing it's all vegan! There's tonnes of veggies to choose from along with dressing selections and the salad bowls are large. It's $10 AUD which is really worth it. The mains are decent sizes and there's a lot of variety, Mexican, Indian and traditional Croatian. I'm eating here every chance I get while I'm here. It's not kind on the pocket but it's better than boiled rice with whatever veg I find in stores and I'm really enjoying trying as many dishes on the menu as I can.

Pros: variety, kind staff

Cons: it's packed, limited seating

A very nice place to have a proper vegan meal - Edit

We've been there at Saturday at the lunch time so it was quite busy. Better make a reservation if you don't want to wait for the table. Staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a salad bar which looked very tasty but I decided to try Humrak - it was full of flavour and healthy as well. Unfortunately there was no place in my stomach for dessert which is a shame as there's some very tempting stuff in the menu.

Pros: tasty vegan food, many dishes to choose from, good

Cons: quite expensive - for two people we paid 40 euro (

I will come back to Croatia to just eat in Nishta - Edit

There is nothing better then Nachos in Nishta. Pakoras are also really tasty. Raw spaghetti too. But those Nachos!!! Oh my. For main dish we had polenta dish and the dish with sweet potatoes in thyme and here we were not the biggest fans. It was good but not the way the starters were. I think the tortillas could be great, the looked and smelled amazing. For the dessert we had some figs in wine with cashew sauce that was really neat. The waiter was extra nice and helpful. We came back to camp rolling that is how full we were. I will miss those nachos everyday!

We booked the table same day in the morning .

Pros: Price, Localization , Taste

Cons: Only one in Dubrovnik.

The best food in Dubrovnik - Edit

This place is just fantastic! A great selection of different dishes, with generous portions and proper fresh ingredients. I had the Indian platter for dinner and then went back for lunch a couple of days later for the falafels. Both were delicious and all the other food I saw being served up looked great as well. My partner and I are both vegan but went with 4 omnis who all really enjoyed it too. Be sure to book as it seems too be busy at all times of the day! The staff are friendly and it's great value compared to most restaurants in old town Dubrovnik.

Pros: Big portions, Good selection, Friendly service

Cons: Limited space

amazing! - Edit

Very nice restaurant in the old town of Dubrovnik with one of the kindest staff I've ever seen. Dishes are varied and tasty, price is average considering the fact you're in the old town. Falafels are tasty as hell and their nachos with vegan cheddar were awesomely good despite the fact my husband has always been hugely reluctant to cheese flavor. Their burritos with tempeh are also über tasty, we even booked a table for the lunch the day after to try the rest of their card. Hugely recommended, though remember to book a table as it's usually quite crowded. Closed on sundays.

Pros: tasty, super keen staff, variety of choice

Cons: Booking mandatory especially if you wanna sit outs

Amazing - Edit

Nishta is such a precious gem to find in Dubrovnik Old Town. My partner and I joined them for lunch, and were utterly impressed with everything- the location, the food, the staff and the pricing wasn't bad.

Our waiter was very friendly- he took the time to answer our questions on some of the menu items.
We ordered vegan nachos to start, and shared a roast vegetable dish and traditional Croatian stew (I cannot recall the names- but you'll figure it out when you're there).

We were so impressed by our dishes. It was such a treat to be able to experience traditional Croatian cuisine, but with a vegan twist, which the restaurant aimed to deliver to its customers (knowing how hard it is for vegan travellers to experience a lot of cultural European dishes as they're predominantly meat based).

The food was fast to our table, plentiful and delicious! I recommend the traditional Croatian stew! It was so tasty and was definitely a flavour I haven't experienced before. It was such a treat to be able to!

All in all, great restaurant! Awesome menu & food, friendly staff, great location!


Pros: Great menu & Delicious food, Friendly staff, Awesome location

Cons: Not many outside tables

Fantastic - Edit

Lovely food, great service and on a nice breezy street. Super friendly staff and a great choice of food. So good we came here a few times on our visit. I would recommend booking on a Saturday and they are closed on a Sunday. The salad bar was great, very fresh and well stocked and the mains are a good size. Recommend the burritos or the apple and pumpkin roast veg.

Not for solo travelers! - Edit

First I went at noon for lunch, there were two couples waiting, when I asked for a table for one they told me I'd have to wait, I said yes and then he told me sorry but we still have people waiting and we have to close the kitchen so no. Then I went again for dinner and there were tables free, when I asked for a table for one they told me they were full and they offered me take away option. Ten minutes later a couple asked for a table and they say OK but they had to leave it in one hour because they were full. So the falafel was ok, spicy but good, but the staff... They should change their attitude to solo travelers!

faire - Edit

A bit pricy for the size of their servings. Ordered a falafel and it did not have anything special. It can take some time to order and get your food.

Amazingly yummy - Edit

As this is the only vegan restaurant in Dubrovnik and has no competition, I wasn't expecting wonders. However, the food I had here was better than most of the food available in my home city, which is filled with great vegan food. I had the salad bar, which may sound boring but most of the vegetable dishes available were cooked in individual delicious marinades, and the effect was wonderful. I wish I could eat from that tasty and varied salad bar every lunchtime. My friends had the middle eastern polenta dish and the rice noodle dish and both loved them too. Staff were very friendly and spoke perfect English (doesn't everyone in Dubrovnik seem to?). It's a small place and we had to wait about 10 minutes for a table to become available for a late lunch.

Best place in Croatia - Edit

We went here for a late lunch on our last day in Dubrovnik. The food was absolutely incredible. We had the falafel (which was super crispy and tasty) and the burger witch had the best sauce.
If you're going for dinner you might have to book in advance because for that night all the tables were booked.

Pros: Nice staff, Delicious , Several options

Amazing vegan restaurant - Edit

I only spent 4 days in Dubrovnik and I went there twice! It's super delicious, fresh and tasty, and it's great that they have "normal" food such as burritos, burgers etc. My family complained about the fact that they didnt have cocoa Cola and normal drinks, but otherwise it was a great experience.

hit and miss - Edit

Worth a visit - or two in my case! - as the only full vegan eatery in Dubrovnik (also the first I've seen in a week of travelling).
Great menu choice - although I think some things lose a little in translation 😂
Salad bar is well worth it, as are the juices/smoothies, mains and puddings but the starters were a bit hit and miss too.
Service also hit and miss - first trip frankly bizarre, second trip excellent!

Pros: great choice, fresh, healthy tasty options, the fig and cashew cream pudding

Cons: service hit and miss, some dishes not what you'd expect

A Delightful Find - Edit

Our party of three thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here. The food was fresh, tasty and delightfully presented. The traditional Dalmatian meal was a hit as was the cashew cream and fig dessert. There are several meal options and all offer different tastes and textures. Highly recommend visiting. Closed Sundays. You will need to book for an evening meal as seating is limited. Charming and helpful wait staff.

Pros: Use of traditional Dalmatian ingredients , Fresh ingredients , All vegan menu

Cons: none

Mediocre - Edit

Food was ok, was expecting more for it being the only veg spot in town. Service was not great either. Just try and stock up at Bio & Bio and cook in your apartment instead.

Pros: Was all vegan

Cons: Mediocre food, Mediocre service

3 times in 2 days! - Edit

The only fully vegetarian/vegan place in Dubruvnik so it is very busy and rightly so. The food is great and has lots of variety (burger, pizza, Indian, pasta, desert ect). We were here three times over 2 days (probably would have been more except they are closed Sundays). Definitely book a table if you plan on eating dinner here, there is minimal seating.

Pros: great food, all vegan , easy to find

Not a lot of options in Dubrovnik - Edit

The restaurant was easy to find. We went there a couple of times. First time I ordered a burger. The burger patty was very nice and had a good flavour and texture to it, but the 'bun' was a piece of naan bread, which was a bit odd and not a good choice. We ordered ice tea and wondered as it was just regular tea that wasnt cold at all.
The staff were very noisy amongst each other and the food too pricey for what you get.

Pros: Good food, Easy to find

Cons: Expensive for what you get, Noisy staff, No actually cold drinks
