There’s no shortage of places to choose from if it’s time to ‘fill up’ in Kotor. Here are a couple of suggestions of restaurants where we ate, and more importantly, really enjoyed.
Galion: Set on the water’s edge just outside The Old Town, you’ll find it hard to get a better setting for a restaurant in Kotor. The stilted dining room of Galion gives you great views of Kotor Bay, the old town and the town walls arching across the rock face. This view is best seen just after sunset as the light fades and the lights of the old walls illuminate, giving a halo like glow around the town. Add to this a beautifully decorated restaurant, a dollop of atmosphere and a location close to old town, it’d be rude not to indulge for the night.However, breathtaking settings don’t necessarily make amazing restaurants. You have no worries here though on that front. This place is more upmarket than many others in old town, and prices reflect that too. The menu focuses on the locally available seafood, and in our opinion does this really well. But if this is not your thing, there are plenty of other options for you on the menu. Mains from €12 upwards.
Luna Rossa: The location for this restaurant couldn’t be more different to Galion. Right in the middle of The Old Town, amongst the narrow lanes, you’ll find Luna Rossa (located on the ground floor of the Hotel Monte Cristo). The setting for an evening meal, with the street lamps lighting up the old town buildings is very welcoming. The cosy restaurant has an outside patio/terrace area and roof terrace looking onto a small square but if the weathers not up to much it also has an indoor area for colder/wetter nights. The menu has a selection of Montenegrin and Mediterranean dishes and are reasonably priced. Throw in friendly and attentive service, a good selection of wines and a beautiful 13th century building and you have the setting for another memorable night.
