I am from Ireland and am getting married in Dubrovnik next May.
We will have a party of about 40 to 50 people and would like to reserve a section in a restaurant for the evening, on the terrace if possible. As it is a wedding party we would like to stay late if possible. We've heard that restaurants stop serving at 11 but presume that they'll leave us stay on if we're drinking. Nautica are charging 200 euro per hour after 11pm to stay open.
We're looking for a restaurant that-
in the town centre,
has a terrace with views,
good food service
and reasonable prices.
will stay open until 1 or 2am (just so we can remain there, don't want food after 11pm).
We're planning to get married in St. Blaise's church.
Hotel- we don't have anywhere booked yet. We're seen brochures for the main hotels (argentina etc.)The Pucic Palace looks lovely but prices are too expensive.
Anyone recommend somewhere?
Any other information that would be useful would be much appreciated. I am visiting Dubrovnik this autumn to plan the wedding want to know what places to check out.
P, you should check out hotel excelsior's taverna rustica. See http://www.hotel-excelsior.hr/home.aspx?PageID=6
You can have your wedding on the terrace of the Rector's Palace, Sponza Palace, Lovrijenac fortress. All of these venues require catering as they are not restaurants. Also, they are obviously more expensive.
Also check out the newly opened Hotel Hilton Imperial on Pile.
Another place that I thought of is a restaurant that recently opened a bit above the parking lot by Pile. It is above the Capitano Bar. You will see it when you go this autumn. You can inquire by them. I havent been there, but the terrace looks lovely. Another place you can check out is the Labirint restaurant http://www.labirint-dubrovnik.com/
within the old town, but towards Ploce, and the East West Club restaurant on Banje Beach (between old town and hotel excelsior). http://www.ew-dubrovnik.com/
I think having the reception at the East West Club on the beach would be absolutely gorgeous with views of the old town, sea, and lokrum. I think you would be able to get a good deal at one of these places.
Please update us. I plan on getting married at St. Blaise too. Only, I am having a lot of people so I might have to get married in the cathedral (its behind St. Blaise).
Which hotel should you stay at... Pucic Palace is way too expensive. Stay at Hotel Excelsior, Argentina, or Imperial. They are the closest to the old town, to your church and reception place and 5 star. Still too expensive? How about Hotel Stari Grad? If you want to venture out further from the old town of dubrovnik check out hotel dubrovnik palace.
