About Ragusa Restaurant

Croatian cuisine isn’t uniform – the regional dishes from Dubrovnik, for example, are immensely different than those from Slavonija. For this reason, defining Croatian cuisine can be rather difficult, perhaps even impossible. At Ragusa Restaurant in Melbourne, diners are provided with dishes that showcase the diversity of Croatia’s spectacular culinary landscape, letting them experience a range of uncommon flavours and textures. Treat your taste buds to something out of the ordinary at this local star on Williamstown’s Nelson Place.

Further Information

Only steps from Commonwealth Reserve and Hobsons Bay, Ragusa Restaurant on Nelson Place offers Melbourne locals an unforgettable dining experience through their exquisite Croatian specialties. Situated inside of the historic English, Scottish and Australian Bank building (built in 1873), the restaurant features a beautiful interior that reminds one of old Europe, making the dining experience all the more authentic.

The gorgeous location of Ragusa Restaurant has made it a Williamstown icon, but the food has earned legendary status throughout Melbourne all on its own. An array of European wines accompany the menu offerings perfectly – ask your server for advice when looking to pair your wine to your dinner selection. Take entrees like the salata od hobotnice, an octopus salad with red onions, olives, capers and kipfler potatoes, and enjoy mains like piletina s dinstanim mahunama, a whole grilled baby chicken with tomato sauce or the hearty svinjska rebra iz paca satarasom, roasted and marinated pork belly served with tomato, eggplant and capsicum. There are desserts galore, but you’ll have to check them out for yourself – make sure to book ahead!

Fantastic location, service and food is a given at this place. To start, we were running 30 mins late to our booking, so called the restaurant to apologise and let them know and they were more than accepting and asked that we take care on the roads. We were seated and served by a lovely young girl called Jadranka who consistently keep the wine flowing, the food coming and was extremely pleasant while interacting with us. First dish was the mussels special with white wine and garlic sauce - an absolute must have if you come to this place to dine. We then followed up with the Moreton Bay Bugs and didn't have an ounce of room for dessert. A wonderfully pleasant experience and highly recommended to anyone who is looking for a friendly atmosphere with sensational food.

Was wonderfully rewarded for trying Croatian cuisine as I'd never really heard of it and didn't know what to expect. The food was glorious and the ambience was romantic in the middle section - white walls, timber beams, framed memorabilia - makes me want to go on holidays to Croatia now. Waiters were sublime - engaging, funny and danced that fine line between attentiveness and oppressive hovering just beautifully! For those burnt by the generally underwhelming food experiences provided all over Nelson Place - this is a real gem!

Our first visit to Ragusa and it certainly will not be our last. My three friends and I thought the atmosphere was lovely and the food was fabulous but we got a shock at the size of the meals, they were so plentifulwe would have easily survived on 2 entrees instead of an entrée and a main. The wine selection was excellent as was the service. Thank you for an enjoyable dining out experience. Maureen Dillon

The service was very good, staff were friendly and efficient. The food was fantastic, there were two of us and we ended up sharing 3 entrees between us and couldn't eat any more. The stuffed baby calamari was delicious, as were the mussels. Will definitely be going back soon, the yabby and prawn risotto looked beautiful and we need to try it.

Good location but parking meters can be issue in that they take only coins or pay be phone. At $3.50 per hour you need lots of coins. Restaurant is rustic/nice, service is very good and food was outstanding. Whitebait was best we have had in years and the Pork Belly was also outstanding. A very pleasant Friday afternoon.

Been to Ragusa a 3-4 times over 3 years and was very happy with the food each time. This last visit was a cold and wet night mid week yet restaurant was still busy. Our group was very happy with both the quality of the food and the service. We will be back.
