Aside from the 7 of us as a family, the rest of the tables were couples, & no wonder, given the stunning views. Be prepared for the 6-storey walk up, the deliberately slow service & the higher prices for the views, & you won't be disappointed! Did I say stunning views??!!! Having said that, the food didn't disappoint either, which is surprising given the heightened expectations. When we did the City Wall walk the next day, we could see this terraced restaurant as it was the only of its kind in the city!

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!

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.

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.

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.
