To truly experience Dubrovnik, you should seek out the city’s best views. Below are some of our favorite spots.
Panorama Restaurant & Bar
Let’s start out strong. Ride a cable car to the top of Mt. Srdj, and experience Dubrovnik’s most breathtaking view, complete with the Old Town, Lokrum island, Lapad bay, and the Elaphiti islands beyond. Drink them in while drinking local wine and enjoying a meal at the Panorama Restaurant & Bar. The cable car is a well-known highlight, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself facing a long line.
A restaurant located in the Old Town’s medieval Prijeko Palace, Stara Loza offers an amazing rooftop terrace with views of the city walls and red rooftops. If you’re looking for a perfect place for a romantic dinner, or special occasion, or even just a memorable meal with friends and family, this is the place to go.
Love Bar is a popular new place among locals, located in the Gruz neighborhood, near Dubrovnik’s main port. This is actually the only bar with a rooftop terrace in town. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Old Town, this laid-back bar is a great place to watch the sunset while enjoying live music and good vibes.

Dubrovnik’s only Michelin-starred restaurant, 360 offers fine dining restaurant in an outstanding location along the city walls and St. John’s Fortress. The exclusively served dinner restaurant serves dinner, offering two five-course tasting menus, and an a la carte menu. Few places in Dubrovnik offer views of the Old Town, port, and sea like 360.
Clifftop Buža bar is another perfect place to enjoy the sunset, thanks to its amazing sea view. It’s accessible through a hole in Dubrovnik’s walls. Once a hidden gem, word has spread, and it can now get busy at times. This is a simple, basic bar with a laid-back atmosphere.
