If you are in the area you should definitely go there and if you are not in the area you should plan a day trip and go there as well (you can spend the day in the lovely tiny beach in Orasac and then head to the Agroturizam Laptalo in the evening!).

We did not have a car so we asked if it was possible to come pick us up at the camping in Orasac and they said "sure no problem, we will be there whenever is more convenient for you". We agreed to meet at 8pm and at 8pm sharp they arrived.

Once there we were greeted by Zeljka who promptly gave us a tour of the old kitchen where our meet was cooking in the traditional peka, to then move to the pantry for the aperitif.
WOW! She made us taste their homemade liqueurs (walnut, pomegranate, rose, lemon, grappa) and they were all amazing. Dried figues and traditional candied orange zest were also offered.

We then moved to the main room for dinner: the room is lovely and very cozy. On the main wall there are pictures forming a family tree and on the side there is a nice table with several products on sales - we bought a bottle of walnut liqueur which I am sipping while I type...mmh! :)

The dinner started with a platted of local cheese, ham and a refreshing salad.
Followed by our stewed meat and vegetables cooked in the peka and a delicious apple cake to finish.

The food is great, huge quantities (and so delicious that was not a big effort to finish it anyway!), the atmosphere is cozy and the owners are amazing hosts that really made us feel welcome.
We felt like we went to visit some old friends and when we left I couldn't help giving Zeljka a big hug!

Zeljka and her husband are lovely people, with a huge smile on their face and you can tell they put a lot of effort and passion in what they do.

Call to make a reservation a few hours in advance so they have time to set up the fire and start cooking your meat.
There is no menu to choose from, just book your table, go there and enjoy the meal!
I am sure it will be one of the best you will have during your holiday and you will remember their lovely smiles and the delicious food for a long time!

Thank you for being so nice! :)

Having travelled extensively along the Croatian coast as well as the hinterland, there is one place that really captured my heart. That place is Agroturizam Laptalo. Having been there once I knew I would be returning there on every trip I did to Dubrovnik.

The hosts were excellent, the ambience fantastic, the decor is WOW. As for the food? FANTASTIC! Fresh, local and home grown. The selection was great, especially the a-la carte selection and every one of our requests was fulfilled.

A great place, great memories there, great hosts and to all my friends that I referred to there were over the moon. All they could say is "Greg.....Wow! You found a fantastic restaurant where one is not rushed and feels right at home"

I highly recommend Agroturizam Laptalo located near the Dubrovnik Sun Gardens resort.

We had a group dinner for 14 people at the Laptalo. Not only was the food fantastic, it was a great way to learn about Croatian food culture. Except for some of the meats, all of the food, wine, and aperitifs were home grown and home-made/home brewed using traditional methods. A wonderful experience.
The homemade wine was a little pricey at around 100 kuna (14 euros) for a half-litre. However, the overall experience was great.
The host and hostess were very welcoming and generous.

Dear Mike L,
Thank you for visiting our place, we are pleased you enjoyed food and service.
Regarding our wine, yes, it is home-made and the price is 14 euros (around 100 kuna) per litre, not half-litre as you wrote. However we hope this won't be at your way to visit us again, it was so nice to have you as our guests.
Thank you for your review and have a nice stay in Croatia!
All the best,
Zeljka

We spent an enjoyable night at Laptalo. After a short look around the facility we enjoyed a home cooked dinner. The food was tasty and plentiful. The wine was home produced and good but quite pricey. (100kuna for half a litre of house wine-around 14 euros)

Thank ann l

Dear Ann,
Thank you for visiting our place, we are pleased that you enjoyed the food, ambience and service.
Regarding our wine, the price is 14 euros (around 100 kuna) per litre, white or red. As you had half of each, total was 14 euros. Maybe there was missunderstanding the way our bill was specified but the price is 14 euros/llitre.
However we hope you will visit our place and be our guests again.
It was a pleasure, thank you for coming!
All the best,
Zeljka

Best of the best....
Last evening we reservated dinner in restaurant Laptalo . We had a real surprise! A resaurant is beautiful with lots of antique items.Our wonderful hosts welcomed us well offered us a whole range of local liqueurs and brandy (walnut, cherry, rose, limoncello, pomegranate ...). Followed by a warm homemade bread with cheese and prosciutto which is the best I've ever tried. Next came lamb, veal and potatoes with vegetables. Large portions and the best meal I've ever had in my life. And just when I thought I have finished they brang us a desert . FANTASTIC TRADITIONAL DESERT DUBROVNIK ROSE CAKE. We tried same cake in old town but this can not be compared to this. For the price we paid we got too much.We highly recommend you dinner at the Laptalo restaurant. The house features a luxuriously decorated apartment and swimming pool that is just finished so we are confident that our next destination will be this place.
A truly the best experience with wonderful people!!!
