I've been for dinner at Cesarica restaurant, outdoor table. I had fresh and well fried mixed fish, salad, bread and a pint of bear. With the tip I spent €15: good value. Nice staff. Actually even a couple of Kotor cats enjoyed some of the fish with me: I offered something under the table :-) So cute!

Food was not bad, but neither good or superb, just average. Waitress was not the most friendly and housewine was average. Was ok but there are far better places to go in Kotor.

Wonderfull restaurant in Kotor in a small little street. It is a family run restaurant and the fish comes directly from the owner who is a fisherman. Food was delicious and service perfect. Can only recommend this fabulus restaurant in the old town of Kotor.

Didn't live up to the hype or articles that we had read. We didn't book so we're parked in a dimly lit alley next to a large reserved empty table. Many roaming cats waiting for scraps and the odd smell of urine don't lend to fine dining atmosphere. After a long wait for an order to be taken and food... More

This was the best restaurant we ate in during our 16 day journey to Croatia and Montenegro. We went back three times. The seafood is excellent, fresh and perfectly prepared. The black cuttlefish risotto was the best I have ever eaten! Also, be sure to try to salted cod and potatoes. Loved it!

Having read reviews we decided to give it a try.... Unfortunately we had bad experience. Service was very slow and almost non existent. Waitress noticed us sitting outside after 15 minutes and took another 5 to bring us menus but had only one other table! Food was ok, except seafood risotto which had nothing to do with risotto - it... More

Excellent food and service! I can definitely recommend this restaurant. The location was also really good, in the heart of Kotor old town.

What a great find! It would be easy to walk past this unassuming little family-run restaurant. It was recommended to us by local expats who have been living in Tivat for 6 years. It's a cosy fit at some of the tables and it lacks the views and elegance of other Kotor restaurants, however, the service was good and the... More

This restaurant is located in a little side street, just off one of the main squares. Tables are set outside and it has a lovely, romantic atmosphere. Service was excellent and there was a great choice of food - I had the sea bream which was excellent. Highly recommended.

We were in Kotor for the day and happened upon this small place. It had inside and outside seating. We ate inside in a corner with imposing stone all around us. We had drinks and we all decided on pizza, since we were there for lunch and didn't feel like eating heavy. I had the mushroom pizza, which they made... More
