Panorama Restaurant is one of a kind restaurant, with a breath-taking cityscape of Dubrovnik from 412 meters above sea level. The restaurant can be accessed by taking the cable car to the top of Srđ Hill. Panorama is the one and only restaurant/ bar in the area. The Dubrovnik Cable Car was built in 1969 and it has been a popular tourist attraction since then. The cable car ride takes around 5 minutes one way and you can slowly see the city and the surrounding islands become cartoon like miniature as the cable car slowly ascend to the top. Okay, back to the restaurant! Panorama is a Mediterranean cuisine restaurant with a lot of seafood dishes, fresh salads, burgers, pastas and some vegetarian friendly dishes. For desserts, it offers homemade cakes and a variety of other deserts. There is also a range of beverage choices from cocktails to exquisite wines.
It was hard to choose what to eat because there were so many appetizing choices. The waiter was very friendly and helpful in giving us advice in what to eat. In the end, we ordered a Seafood Platter for appetizer, Tuna Sandwich, Scampi Risotto and Crabmeat Ravioli. The seafood platter was light and fresh, I especially liked the chargrilled octopus. It was well marinated and well cooked. Out of the main dishes, I enjoyed the Scampi Risotto the most. The risotto was well seasoned, creamy but not too heavy.
Apart from the incredibly delicious food, the view makes up a major part of the experience. There is an outdoor and indoor area. For my travel companions and I, we chose to dine outdoors to enjoy the pleasant weather. Since it is quite high up above sea level, even though it was super sunny when I visited during mid-April, it was a still little chilly because of the wind. I thought it was a nice finishing and considerate touch that on every chair there was a blanket provided for the customers to keep warm. There were also big outdoor umbrellas to give shades when it gets too sunny.
Over all, this dining experience was a very enjoyable one. The prices are a little on the higher end in Dubrovnik but I would definitely recommend those who are looking for a relaxing dining spot.
As for now, Happy Jetsetting! ✈
