Tasty food, if you're looking for a non-pizza option

It seems the main food in the area is pizza. I love pizza but, I was hoping for seafood since the sea is right across the street! Cesarica was just the place for seafood. It's a lovely hidden gem in Kotor. The lovely brick & rock walls provide character and the seafood menu doesn't let you... read more

We were surprised to find this excellent restaurant in one of the tiny streets in the heart of the old town! Its stone walls create very cozy ambience and you feel really comfortable. Seafood was very fresh and prepared with local ingredients making it very Mediterranean and tasty. Waiters were really helpful giving suggestions and were taking care of everything... More

Quiet when we visited, very accomodating as we had a baby. Calamari and shrimp risotto excellent as was the bread and fries. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

Everything I have tried from them was simply delicious. Having lived in the Caribbean and in Asia, I think I know my seafood, and this was seafood! Fresh and simple the way seafood should be. Best clam pasta I've ever had. Definitely going back for more.

I talked to some local guys and they told me, that since I was staying in Kotor old town I should try Cesarica … well I wasn’t disappointed. I had the salted sardine starter and you... More

It was the third squids plate I had in a week (twice in Dubrovnik). This one was very fresh and tasty (potatoes with greens were just average). Friendly service. Nicely decorated inside was exactly what we expected in this old town. We avoided the crowded daytime tourists groups, but we sat also outside table at lunch time with dark beer... More

It's a decent fish restaurant, with nice atmosphere. Waitress (owner?) was friendly and gave our daughter some coloring items. My wife and daughter had the fish. My daughter liked it, my wife had some issues because her fish wasn't deboned (I know it is supposed to be served as an original whole fish this way, but still). I had the... More

The menu isn't that different to the other restaurants around, but the food was very well cooked and tasty. We had the grilled fish, and a steak, both were very good and the service was pretty good too. Prices were reasonable for the food you got, but not super cheap, but then it is right in the middle of Old... More
