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

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

Had our first dinner in Kotor in this little palce - was a bit hard to find on the first night, but locals were very helpful. Had mixed fish platter with potatoes and greens - was enough for two of us with a starting salad each. It was delicious. Had some local beer as well. Staff was attentive and very... More

We looked all around Kotor and chose our restaurant carefully and ended up choosing here. Compared to the prices elsewhere it was slightly cheaper while offering decent portions and delicious food. The cuttlefish risotto was extremely tasty!

Sea bream was excellent. My partner had steak which was excellent. Eat before it starts getting dark though! We hadn't much light to navigate the fish bones!

We had the stuffed squid, it was stuffed with squid, but it was delicious, olive oil, spices, garlic and onions, made this dish remarkable, delicious and unique. Just like many of the other dishes served here. Lovely little alley that is super picturesque. Great prices. What's not to like?

A little tucked away, but seemed very full. I had the cuttlefish risotto and a large beer which together with tip and bread came in at under £10. This has to be the best risotto I've ever had. The ink gave it a characteristic black colour, and the flavour was rich but full of subtleties too. The service was great... More

Found this place while strolling the back streets of the Old Town. The sign on the street listed mostly Italian items but when we investigated the menu in the restaurant itself we found it had quite a few local dishes as well. My wife and I sat inside the restaurant which was comfortably full. Our young waitress had seen us... More
