It is probably one of the most beautiful sites in the historic heart of Dubrovnik.

Restaurant Klarisa, previously known as Restaurant Jadran, was opened in 2011 after complete reconstruction.

The monastery of St. Klara was the best known of the eight monasteries for women in Dubrovnik which mostly ordained noblewomen from Dubrovnik. It was built during the 13th and 14th century. In the 13th century the shelter for abandoned children was opened within the monastery, and in 1432 the authorities of Dubrovnik founded Nahodište (Orphanage), one of the first of its kind in Europe at the time.

With the arrival of the French in 1806 all monasteries for women in Dubrovnik were closed, among them the monastery of St. Klara, the well-known Klarisas, which was turned into a stable and an ammunition warehouse. Today this monastery has numerous assignments. Its cloister has been a restaurant for decades, and in the other part there are the offices of Dubrovnik Diocese.
