About us

...we are your hosts Rosa and Gildas. Typically untypical Croatian/Swiss couple that was brought to Dubrovnik by a series of coincidences. Life usually has plans of its own and the universe often doesn't care much about one's planning, and that's how our one-day trip to Dubrovnik became an adventure. We opened Smuuti Bar, a new concept in Dubrovnik. Our entire offer was based on smoothies and juices made from fresh fruit and vegetables. The business proved to be successful, and gave us the courage to start a new project - ...nishta. A long time ago, in a past life of ours in Switzerland we both graduated with degree in hotel management. Given the fact that both of us are certified chefs, opening a restaurant seemed like the next logical step forward. There was significant demand for vegetarian cuisine in Dubrovnik at the time and with increasing awareness on the importance of a healthy diet, a veggie restaurant seemed like a good fit for the town. So in a town where no vegetarian restaurant existed, we launched...nishta.


Proud to be ...nishta


"Nishta is the only vegan restaurant in Zagreb that I know of, just a few minutes walk from the main square"
(Filip Štrlek)

Nishta blends Eastern and Western food cultures together in their daily menus, but mostly the food is a vegan version of Croatian traditional food that you can say represents Croatian regions by tastes and cooking styles. Everything they serve is home-made and most of the food is gluten-free. Every day there is something different on the daily menu, but you can always find stews and raw desserts..... read article


"omg delicious contemporary vegan veggie experience"
(julia mSwansea, United Kingdom)

I am vegan, my husband is omnivore and we both LOVED the meals we ate here. first time I dropped in there were no tables free dinner time you need to book. I was on a nearby island and as a vegan I was becoming very bored and hungry so I had a falafel flatbread hummus salad takeaway which I ate sitting by the port city walls with happy tears in my eyes.... read more

"Excellent vegetarian resuaurent"
(Dev1964Crawley, United Kingdom)

Small and authentic feel about the resuaurent. Offers great vegan and gluten free meals. I visited this restaurent with my wife and two other couples. Dubrovnik can be a dificult place to find a good vegetarian restaurent. But Nishta offers quality vegetarian food. The service was excellent. Book early in order to avoid disappointment as you are not likely to get served if you turn up fir a meal without reservation.... read more
