Urban Veggie is happily located in Gruž, only 2 km from Dubrovnik’s Old City.
As the economic, business and trading center of Dubrovnik, Gruž is in many ways this city’s second heart. Here you’ll find many companies and agencies, a modern port for cruisers, ferries and yachts, the main bus station and Dubrovnik’s all-time favorite sports club – Water Polo Club Jug. The urbanscape of Gruž, stretching from Kantafiga Horn in the west to Ilijina Glavica in the east, is dotted by amazing historic villas, as Dubornvik’s aristocracy begun erecting their summer residences in this beautiful bay as early as the 13th century. These beauties keep attracting both gazes and selfies – whatever pleases your heart!
Gruž is also home to the main Dubrovnik food market, offering amazing homegrown food and spices from Konavle Valley, Island of Šipan and Pelješac Peninsula. Be summer or winter, Gruž market is the lively meeting point of all Dubrovnikers, regardless of their age or occupation, a bustling, merry place steeped in unique southern scents and colors. We have to admit, apart from Urban Veggie, the city’s main food market is our favorite spot in Gruž!
Urban & Veggie is located at the very seaside, on a lot that once upon a time was a part of Gundulić Villa’s garden. Today’s edifice and terrace that house Urban & Veggie was built around the 1850s by then-owner Biaggio Radić, whose initials can still be seen at the balcony above the restaurant’s entrance. Now, heritage is something that every Dubrovniker considers a serious affair. Therefore we are proud that here, at this actual location, we can offer our own, contemporary contribution to the millennia-old tradition of Dubrovnik’s cuisine.
Urban Veggie is the temple of whole-food gastronomy, the oasis of peace and quiet set amidst the neighboring Mediterranean gardens that are filled with palms, pines, laurels, oleanders, rosemary, lavender and much more. This very special ambient yields a perfect synergy with our ultra-healthy and ultra-tasty menu, guaranteeing a true whole-food food spa.
Step across Urban Veggie’s threshold and leave the city’s hubbub, worries and stress behind. Relax and enjoy our restaurant’s understated and comfortable modern design, while savoring the first-class vegetarian and vegan delicacies.
