Cesarica

Reviewed By Katarinasea - Dallas, Texas

Cesarica is in the Old Town just on the corner where the Orthodox Church is located. Despite being a little tricky to find, hidden in a street behind the Pub Dock , it is well worth it to get a chance to so enjoy their lovely fish menu. The fishing history of the area is clear to see: the walls are interesting in photographs and memorabilia of the family. This all adds to the rustic charm of the place. .. Fish Soup is outstanding....Local wines and beer is the best...Variety of cheeses and bread..will make you mouth water for more.....We had Bilana as our server ...She introduced us to Vesna . the chef.. as we had to let them know how very pleased we were ...Both were delightful and so very helpful......With fish and seafood specialties and great prices ...Family run ...It is always what we look for in any country...This was one of our best choices...We will always return to this blessing !!

Galerija

Mediterranean fish and seafood, balanced freshness of the salads, perfectly seared steaks, warm traditional bread, Italian balsamic and locally produced olive oil is just the beginning. Open from breakfast through dinner Galerija offers traditional Montenegrin cuisine with a twist of international flare - olives, young cheese, ham, veal soup, grilled guilt-had and seafood, variety of local wines and specific tradition of cookery.

Reviewed By AHill62 - Leeds, United Kingdom

We were a party of four who enjoyed a fine meal at Galerija.
I shared a fresh fish with my daughter, and we both thought that the fish was as nice as any we have eaten, and it was perfectly cooked. My daughter's boyfriend ordered the thickest T-bone steak that I can recall seeing.
Service was excellent and the setting was perfect - particularly to view the lit-up city walls that climb up for hundreds of metres.

Reviewed By Sinem G - Istanbul, Turkey

I have never eaten fish dishes like this before. We ordered fried calamari, stuffed calamari with shrimp and mussels with tomato. I tasted these in many different countries but this was the best. The service was extremely kind and good. Mandic was so friendly and kind. Finally the location; it is really perfect. Wooden tables, a very nice sea view just next to you, away from the crowd. I highly and extremely recommend.

Galion

Reviewed By JudyGraham - Main Beach, Australia

We dined here, the ambience of the restaurant is gorgeous, at night it's all candlelight and during the day you have the most gorgeous views over the bay. The service we received was exemplary, probably the best dining experience of our six week vacation. The fish was excellent, my tuna was perfectly cooked, as was my husbands John Dory

Astoria Restaurant

This restaurant is attached to the Astoria Hotel. It covers part of a square in the old town of Kotor.

Reviewed By StewartRobert - Hong Kong, China

We had a really decent lunch during our day in Kotor. The Old Town has loads of restaurant options and Astoria is definitely one of the more discerning, set slightly off one of the three main squares so with fewer cruise ship packs passing by. We had local beer and a glass of local house wine, tagliatelle with prawns, Greek salad and tasty bread. Everyone except us seemed to be smoking outside which wasn’t ideal, but hard to avoid if you want to sit outside and enjoy watching the world pass by

Reviewed By GOH77 - Malta

The receptionist at the Alkima hotel next door suggested we should try this restaurant. Well we couln't thank her enough for her recommendation. Here we tried one of the juiciest and most tender steaks ever. The service is also very good and attentive. Must be one of the best go to restaurants in Kotor yet not the tourist trap type. Highly recommended steakhouse.

Reviewed By Cecr99 - Montreal, Canada

Visited the place for dinner, ordered the Pronto Pizza ....not dissapointed, great tasting pizza and great price too! Small place that is always busy - not hard to understand once you eat there. If you are in Kotor it is a must to try!
