Dubrovnik is a site of many landmarks, and counts as probably one of the most important tourist destinations in the whole world. The beautiful surroundings and numerous visitors contributed to development of local dining offer, peaking with arrival of Restaurant 360 in Ulica Svetog Dominika Street. The recent Michelin star laureate provides top-quality meals, which can be served in the heights of Dubrovnik ramparts. The locality provides a complete view of ancient surroundings- a feature which gave the name to the restaurant.
The prestigious dining destination has been recently visited by Radovan Marcic. One of Croatia’s best food experts reviewed Restaurant 360 in his column for Dobra Hrana magazine, and the impressions he had followed the established pattern. This Dubrovnik spot is literally a gourmand shrine.
“360 has more than hundred tables, but because they are arranged over a large terrace, the place never seems to crowded. Views of the historical core and old city port are as gorgeous as you can imagine, as are impressive sights of Lokrum Island and cliffs of Srd Mountain,” Marcic described the surroundings. “You are immediately approached by no less than five waiters, each tasked with introducing their segment of service. You are briefed about possible orders and accompanying wine offer, then allowed to think about them in company of aromatized home-made butters and selection of pastry.”
“Restaurant 360 has only one goal: to impress the guest in the best possible way. As there is a saying that every American has to visit Dubrovnik at some point in life, most of their clients come from United States. Hence one can feel a note of Hollywood in entire experience.”
“Attention to detail and will to impress can be seen on every plate. Meals are served in accordance with several French techniques of preparation and one can clearly see a lot of effort to acquire superb ingredients and accompanying wines.”
Marcic’s meal begun with amuse bouche of three snack-like meals: eggplant in molted coal, Jerusalem artichoke chips with fried meat of Slavonian hogs and baked parmesan mousse. What followed was a tasty carrot dishes, prepared on four different ways and coupled with black garlic crème and toasted pine nuts.
“Another dish that made this restaurant famous is smoked mackerel fillet with bonito dressing, pickled cauliflower, Mediterranean chimichurri and celery crème. Chef Mario Curic prepares kataifi shrimp with sweet-sour feta and Jerusalem artichoke and shrimp cappuccino.”
The final dishes greatly impressed Marcic and he proclaimed them the crown of chef’s talent. The first one was flounder fish fillet with stewed seashells. The animal’s fin was deep fried in panko crumbs and arrived with cauliflower crème and dark fish sauce. The concluding meal was black Slavonian pig meat, masterfully prepared with crunchy crust.”
Marcic has also noted that Restaurant 360 has a lengthy list of 470 wines in offer and suggests trying local brands. As for the price range, a la carte menu that includes appetizer and main dish can be ordered for 520 HRK / 70 € / 80 $. Of course, other options are available as well.
