OPEN, SESAME!

was a magical phrase in the story of “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves” in One Thousand and One Nights. It would open the door to a great hidden treasure. This treasure now awaits for you in the newly refurbished Restaurant Sesame, Dubrovnik’s most beautiful secret gem. Come and see what fantastic charm this place holds, ready to seduce you with its unique setting.

HISTORY

Restaurant Sesame follows the family tradition from 1880 and is located in a quaint green oasis just a couple of minutes away from the Old town, in the street leading towards Gradac park and Danče beach, favorite local spots. The street is named after the great Italian poet Dante, and if you look closely, you will see his bust near the entrance to Sesame. The restaurant is a part of a two-hundred year old stone house, surrounded by lush greenery of orange and pittosporum trees.

Every little detail inside Sesame tells the story of Dubrovnik, its rich history is simply a part of Sesame’s own identity. A careful observer will undoubtedly notice old black and white photos of Dubrovnik, with its old tram from the 20th century. There are other curiosities, like the little owl figurines, symbols of wisdom, scattered throughout the restaurant.

Only some really good things in life are worth talking about twice, three times and many times afterwards. It’s not just feelings these things awaken in you, it’s an impact this classy work of art cn leave on you. Many situations in life do not create such an impression, but a good piece of meat certainly does!

Had group dinner there, good menu selection and extensive wine menu. Aperol spritz was lovely. Main of steak with vegetables, mash and truffle was recommended and didn’t disappoint. Good cake selection to finish. Reasonable prices given location and menu.

Couldn’t fault the service here! Super welcoming and friendly. There was a huge variety of food on the menu and the food was super tasty. The surroundings and seating was very pleasant and beautiful. Outside the main old town gate of Dubrovnik but I’ll definitely be back!
