Every week The Dubrovnik Times goes to new levels for your pleasure. This time it’s all about culinary pleasure. We have scoured the menus of Dubrovnik to bring you our favourites. And not only did we just research the menus we have gone that extra step and tasted the food in advance for you...its hard work but someone has to do it. This week I visited an iconic pub in the heart of the Old City of Dubrovnik.
You remember that serial from the 1980’s “Cheers” and the theme tune – you want to go where everyone knows your name. Well that is the feeling you get as soon as you enter The Gaffe - Irish pub. Located in the very heart of the ancient Old City of Dubrovnik The Gaffe has a welcoming and friendly feel. It is good honest food served by super friendly staff. Over the years, The Gaffe started back in 2004, this Irish pub has been a magnet for locals and tourists alike. That tip about – look where the locals eat and then go there – is certainly true about The Gaffe. “We have a couple of new dishes on the menu that you must try,” explained the waiter to me. I had already tried most of the menu before so I guess it was time for something new. “Why not try our Tandoori Chicken?” he added.
Served with a fresh salad and freshly cut chips made from locally grown potatoes – sounded just the ticket. The Gaffe is pub grub, but pub grub served and created with style. Dishes range from fish and chips, BBQ spare ribs, chicken wings to all sorts of burgers. And if you are looking for a good spot for an English breakfast then The Gaffe is the spot. Breakfast is served from 9.00am to 11.00am and includes eggs breakfast, classic breakfast and if you are feeling particularly peckish then try the “Hungry Morning.” What to drink with my Tandoori Chicken – craft beer. And not any old craft beer, The Gaffe has commissioned their own craft beer for this year – would also make a unique souvenir. The Tandoori was spectacular, I hadn’t expected anything different from The Gaffe. It was even served with yogurt to give that real curry feeling. Looking for a night out, well start early in The Gaffe. From 6.00pm to 7.00pm the happy hour offers two drinks for the price of one. Basically buy one get one free. Live sports, live music and a brunch menu that changes every day and has prices starting at only 38 Kuna – yes we still love The Gaffe. (but we already knew we would and so will you)
