I visited Above 5 on the last evening of my trip. The food was really good; I had the 5 course menu as I just couldn't whittle the menu down to the 3 courses! It was more pricey than the Michelin star restaurant (360) but...I assume that is because of it's views (over the rooftops of Old Town Dubrovbik). The service was great, very informative and friendly and watching the sunset over Old Town was well worth it.More

Booked 5 days in advance on a local recommendation for my son's 18th birthday. What a treat it turned out to be. The food is fabulous, carefully thought out and expertly prepared and presented. After our French Martini aperitif... we had 3 course or 5...course (2x starter and 2x main) options. Tuna sashimi (omg the ginger pickled cucumber) and mushroom ravioli were the starter highlights. Lobster and rack of lamb mains were brilliant, but the favourite was the swordfish complimented beautifully with a homemade avjar (apparently to the co-owners grandmothers recipe!). There is a delicious bottle of Croatian Grk on the wine list. Wines are also available by the glass. The chocolate dessert was very rich, but the wonderful pavlova took the prize. The Service was exceptional. Nothing too much trouble, you are treated like a Hollywood star. Which, coincidently is who walked in just as we were finishing. Apparently they had asked to book the whole place for the evening. Speaks volumes of the owners commitment to her clientele, that she knew we had booked for a special occasion and ensured we were not ousted in favour of an "A lister". We were even treated to a fine grappa in the downstairs bar while we waited for the paparazzi to clear off. ;)More

Sunset Dinner We were lucky to get a table during the first seating just in time for sunset! The views are magnificent, but so are the food and service. Our waiter was knowledgeable explaining all dishes in great detail and keeping our glasses full :)...The food was outstanding, you can see and taste all the hard work that was put into each and every dish on the menu! We went for 5 course menu, but ended up receiving 7 in the form of amuse bouche before the starter and a pre-dessert...what a bonus. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we would come back to Dubrovnik just to visit Above 5!More

In this extraordinary summer (with very few tourists) we were lucky to get a table on short notice - we heard from the staff that you otherwise need to reserve at least a week ahead. The service was very nice, the food excellent (although the...dessert "Pavlova" was not the type of big fat cream and berries cake that we usually understand by this name - rather the haute cuisine size and shape of it ...More

Above5 is amazing in every sense. The staff work tirelessly to ensure every guest is attended and happy at every moment. The food is incredible and the Michelin recommendation is clearly deserved. Very high quality and beautifully presented food. Our waiter was so attentive without...being intrusive - so full of knowledge about each element of every dish and also impressive knowledge about wine pairings. Now the view - simply stunning from the rooftop! I will say no more as this will ruin your surprise. We booked a time and chose a table so that we could watch the sunset - remarkably romantic. I would certainly recommend booking this restaurant as it is understandably in high demand. It's so good, that we would book another holiday to this beautiful city just to eat here... Well done and thank you to all the staff at Above5. You made us feel very special and very welcome.More

We came to Dubrovnik for our anniversary, we chose to go to above 5 because of the beautiful view they have of the Old town. We were welcomed with a complimentary glass of bubbly to celebrate and before our 3 corse meal, were given a...delicious amuse-bouche. You can choose either a three course or five course meal, and all options on the menu are fabulous. I don’t enjoy sweet food but to my surprise they were very happy to cater to my needs and offered two starters and a main instead. I had to start the mushroom ravioli with truffle oil, it couldn’t of been made better. The truffle was prominent and the presentation of the pasta was stunning, I have been to many places where meals claim to have truffle oil and I am met with disappointment. My boyfriend had the tuna sashimi; it was also just as brilliant. Then in between we had my second starter, the beef tartre, which was offered with complimentary (home made) bread to enjoy with it. Following on, I had the the beef tenderloin. I usually enjoy my meat bloody however, our server (Maro) recommended medium rare. I was sceptical at first but served perfection, the meat was juicy, tender and flavoursome. My partner had the lobster with home made pasta, his comments were also positive. To finish, we were served the pavlova. It was presented beautifully and in all honestly my boyfriend didn’t want to eat it because he didn’t want to ruin the art work in front of us! Overall, we shared one of the best nights out we have ever had together and without a doubt it was due to the friendly, well educated service, beautiful setting and food. We will be back!More

I have never written a review before on any platform. Had supper here with my wife. We have had the pleasure of eating at some of the best restaurants in the world. This is a truly world class establishment. Quality of the food, staff and...service absolutely superb. Those who have written negative reviews here are either talking about another restaurant or are from some other planet. We will definitely return.More

If you’re in Dubrovnik you have to visit this restaurant! The amazing views, food and service are not to be missed! The waiters are the most knowledgeable I’ve met and nothing was too much trouble. There’s a 3 & 5 course menu and everything on...there is just superb! The quality of the food is certainly up there with the best and when you have a beautiful sunset to admire its a memorable meal occasion. Not to be missed!More

I’m sorry I’m unsure. The food and drink prices were as you’d expect in a Michelin star restaurant. It was such a memorable experience I hope you get the chance to go.

No elevator and I think it’s 4 flights.... it’s a lot of stairs, but worth it if you can make them!

There is no dress code, but most of the customers were dressed smart casual.
