ragusa republika , williamstown

Ragusa Republika is one of the best restaurants in the west. Full stop. It’s reputation as having amazing food is absolutely deserved, with every dish that comes out of the busy kitchen lovingly prepared from scratch. It has gone through a change of ownership recently with local family Eva and Mark taking over - but they have kept the amazing chefs Santosh and Bharat still serving up the same tasty Croatian dishes like Moreton Bay Bugs in white wine, garlic and sugo, melt in your mouth calamari with capers, or marinated pork belly with crispy crackling….yummm. There is also a kids menu, so its not just about the adults here - and they can provide colouring pencils too! Mamma loves the character of this old Medieval building, an old bank dating back to 1873. We love that this Westie favourite is BACK and here to stay!

Oh they have a gorgeous event space out the back and fantastic live Croatian music nights so keep an eye out on their Facebook page!

Mamma's special mention: Ragusa is right near the gorgeous Commonwealth Reserve and Gem Pier, go for a wander!
