There are a few places that have a view of the marina, but this place has the best.

Not only does it offer attentive staff, good food and decent surroundings, but it also has the best fish stew in town. It's packed full of seafood and comes with a side dish of polenta.

Top tip is to ask for a card that gets you 10% off the bill and can be used again and again.

We visited this place a few times for mojitos. The mojitos were fantastic! Also had breakfast here. The quality is very good. For example orange juice was freshly squeesed. In addition to good quality, the setting is perfect but the prices are not any higher than in other, not so fancy, restaurants in the old city.

Visited here on our last evening in Dubrovnik. Didn't book (which with hindsight is recommended), but we got lucky.
Absolutely stunning restaurant inside with amazing views through the open air vaulted walls looking into the old harbour.
Service was attentive, helpful but not overbearing. The prices, given its decor and location, were comparatively reasonable. Not only did we receive a free apperitif, but also a free dessert. The food was stunning. I had the pork belly, and it was not a tiny portion. More than enough to offer samplings to my folks sitting opposite.
Would certainly recommend booking, it seemed full all night. The temptation would be to book a table closest to the marina, but given there is a public walkway right there, nosey pedestrians are but a few steps away. Further in is just as nice, and you experience the full ambiance of the visually impressive interior.

A big place on the water in old town. Doesn’t get more touristy....so expectations were low. But out of the 10 days we stayed in Croatia this was one of our best meals. The adults had delicious Croatian dishes and the kids had pasta with a nice Croatian red. And, one of my favorites, a free after dinner drink, digestivo, always causes me to warm to a place. Our waiter was very friendly and gave us a couple different history lessons on Croatian history and politics. A good time was had by all
