“Beautiful location”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

One of the most beautiful locations I have ever eaten in. This restaurant is nestled within the orange rooftops of the old town in Dubrovnik. The view of the town is stunning from the roof terrace. The food was delicious and the waiter was very friendly. I cannot fault this restaurant!

“Romantic roof top dinner, our best meal in Dubrovnik, lovely atmosphere.”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Beautiful views of old town skyline, freindly service, top notch food. Quiet roof top restaurant with only 10ish tables (5 flights up). Try the beef tartare, the best we've ever had! (And we are big foodies!). Service personal. Highly recommended but be sure to book in advance!! Perfect for quiet romantic dinner away from the busy touristy restaurants.

“Great view, average food....”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We ate at this restaurant one night - beware it is 5 flights up! The views were exactly as flagged - exceptional. However we did think the food was average. The tables are small and by the time you have a bottle of water, bottle of wine and bread there is no room, and whilst the food was ok it certainly wasnt outstanding. We had better service and quality in other restaurants during our stay.

“Excellent experience with good food”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

This is an interesting dining experience with an excellent view of Dubrovnik from above. It feels like being in a special space away from the hustle and bustle of the city below. The food and service are good, with the price not that much more expensive than some of the ground level restaurants throughout Dubrovnik.

From my experience, be prepared to have a long meal and soak up the view. There is only one server and he has to run up and down the stairs to get everything (water, food, etc.) -- the guy has a really hard job and it's easy to see how he stays physically fit. This is a pro and a con as you can really enjoy the view and observe how the city changes as the sun sets -- the people disappear from the city walls, the lights slowly get turned on, the sky changes colors, etc.. However, those wanting a quick meal may not enjoy this.

Also, there are special appetizers and entrees that need to be pre-ordered if you want to have them. I was able to pre-order the mussels with white wine and garlic and it was excellent. So a tip is to check out the menu when you are talking to the hotel staff (to make a reservation) and think if you want any of the special pre-order items.

“The staff and the view makes this excellent”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

First of all I should add that the food is indeed very good! I wouldn't go as far as saying excellent, but absolutely amongst the better I've had in Dubrovnik's old town.

What makes this place special is that is's one of the two (I've seen) restaurants in Dubrovnik that actually has a rooftop terrace on the upper most floor - giving you and your 12(!) companions a panoramic view of the old town.

I spotted this place by chance as I was walking the city walls and had to take pictures from above and navigate myself from those to find the entrance on the ground once I was down there. This is really a little gem in Dubrovnik's old town and a rising star on TripAdvisor if I assume correctly,

As seating is scarce be sure to book in advance if you plan on eating here. Oh, and I should also add that the staff were absolutely darlings all the way from the receptionist on the ground floor up to the waiter in the "sky". You guys get "excellent"! :-)
