Get to know me better
The Pirate Chef at your service
I was born and raised right here in Dubrovnik. In my past years, I have traveled extensively to the most exotic places, always seeking to perfect my cuisine. My curiosity for food dates back to when I was a child and at a very early age dreamed of becoming a chef. It was the scent of different dishes that drew me to the pots. In my professional career, I have been a private yacht chef for five years, worked in restaurants all around Dubrovnik, until finally opening up my private chef business.
My favorite cuisine is Thai but my cooking skills are best honored in Mediterranean and Croatian cuisine.
Rest assured that I am looking forward to sharing my passion and experience with you
For me, cooking is...
My way of sharing the things I love with the world
I learned to cook at...
Restaurants all around Dubrovnik, traveling around the globe.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Without a doubt Anthony Bourdain
A cooking secret...
Using the best local ingredients, and presenting them in a way that is inviting and delicious

Chef Dario's reviews
Wonderful absolutely wonderful, all 7 family members loved every bite of all 4 courses. We had a lot of fun and wish we did not leave this to one of the last nights because we would of chosen another night or two.

Chef Dario was very easy to communicate with before the event and he provided all that was promised! He worked very efficiently, especially considering the villa we were staying in didn’t have much prep space, and even had to dash out to buy wood when he discovered that we had purchased the wrong type for bbq. He took it all in stride, explaining he was used to dealing with all situations. Most important, his food was beautiful and delicious! We were a party of ten (adults, teens, and kids) and we all loved each course! We had a mix of seafood and meats and veggies and an amazing chocolate birthday cake (he even brought the candles). Yes, the meal probably cost more than at a restaurant, but it was a wonderful, relaxing way to celebrate my husband’s birthday and allowed for the kids to move about. We were also able to have our first course by the pool and the others on the table set up on the villa’s veranda. Chef set the table, served, and cleaned up as well. I would definitely hire Chef Dario again!

We had a great diner thanks to Dario.
A very kind person, took enough time for the preparations, set the table and cleaned up very well. He even added a salade to the menu!
If there is one thing which could have been better, it’s the communication about the vegetarian dish for 1 of the guests. I had made the agreement on 1 vegetarian dish, but at the end he didn’t prepare a vegetarian dish. Luckily my vegetarian friend was flexible and had the fish menu as well.
I would definitely recommend take a chef to others and Dario as chef in Dubrovnik! Thank you for the great night.
