Restaurant 360 – Dubrovnik Old Town

In my opinion, any holiday worth its (sea) salt should be punctuated with a divine dining experience on your last night.  For our last night in Dubrovnik, we had high hopes and arranged to meet with our new Italian friends to enjoy an evening’s dining and drinking under the Croatian stars. However, after some aimless meandering and false-choice restaurants, we were at a loss. Where, oh where would we enjoy our last supper? Bread and wine was not sufficient for these disciples and so, when we stumbled upon Restaurant 360, it felt almost like finding a £50 note winking at you from the pavement at your feet. (That would have been nice too)

Set within the Old Town walls and boasting the most spectacular views of the port, we were immediately sold on eating at this hidden gem. A minute’s debate at how prices were slightly higher than other restaurants in Dubrovnik was swiftly stifled at the prospect of fine dining as ladies of leisure.

As you walk into the restaurant, you cross a mezzanine floor which overlooks a modern luxurious bar area on one side (fit with four poster double bed seating areas and large ethnic lanterns) and the bustling kitchen on the other. You are then led by your table’s personal waiter onto the roof top where all the tables have the best view and are spaciously arranged.
This is the kind of establishment where you find yourself sitting up a little bit straighter, enunciating your order properly and gently folding the cloth napkin over your lap as you quaff the sumptuous wine as recommended by Josip  the waiter.

and oh the food!

As a direct descendent of the most close-fisted Geordie around, I must note that even with two bottles of wine and a baileys coffee, our meal only cost us £44 per person (including a tip!). Could this restaurant be any better? The answer is no.

An absolute must for when you visit Dubrovnik!
