Visited this restaurant last night, for the final dinner of our holiday in Croatia, and had a truly fabulous evening above the roof tops of the old town. Like others, we had spotted this terrace when walking the walls, and thought it would offer a spectacular view of the city, then spotted it on Tripadvisor so called in earlier in the afternoon to book, noting the limited number of tables.
The restaurant sits above Stari Grad Hotel, above the 5th floor, hence the "Above 5" name. This is only accessible via the stairs so expect quite a hike (no lifts allowed without the UNESCO old town) but worth the effort as you are greeted with a spectacular view of the city from the small but delightful terrace. We were worried about the weather forecast, but in fact it has glass screens around the sides and a canopy so this wasn't an issue. We were lucky enough to experience a beautiful sunset.
On arrival you are received by Rodrigo who is a larger than life character and delivers an "Above 5" all around entertaining experience. This includes his special smoked gin preparation. This was far and away the most personal service we experienced in restaurants during our 7 day trip.
The food itself was beautiful presented. The menu was very limited in terms of main courses (just 3) and was tasty but to be honest the food became somewhat secondary! The meal was towards the more expensive end but you get what you pay for and we would highly recommend a visit.

Well worth the effort of climbing five flights of stairs.
The views over the old town are lovely
Service is sublime.
Food is beautifully presented in lovely white bone china bowls and it tastes as good as it looks.
Breads are stunning
The beef cheeks sumptuous
Thoughtful choice of beers and wines
We could hear a lovely concert below
It was a magical experience and highly recommended for romance.
There is a peace and tranquility here
The best restaurant by far we have found in Dubrovnik.

Always looking for rooftop bars/restaurants on our trips, we were so lucky to find this place. Set on the rooftop of hotel Stari Grad, this restaurant offers incredible views of the city creating a completely different atmosphere. It felt like we were miles away from the busy streets! Our server was incredible adding to the charm of this place. The menu, although limited, was creative and had plenty to choose from. We opted to start with something we never tried before, gnudi, and it was delicious. Filled with homemade ricotta cheese that melted in our mouths. As a main we had the beef cheeks and pulled lamb burger, both very tasty. We also tried their smoked gin and tonic that is prepared in front of you, an amazing spectacle as well as taste. To sum up...don't miss out on it!!!

From the minute we got up to the roof, we knew this was going to be a great experience. Hospitality is not always the best in Dubrovnik , but Above 5 got it spot on and that made this meal unforgettable.
Home made foccacia, salmon carpaccio and bruschetta was divine as an appetizer.
The lamb burger and braised beef cheek as mains was amazing too.

You must get a meal in at this restaurant - try and make it in for sunset as its quite breath taking.
Also fun fact - the chef is only 20 - couldn't believe it
