The restaurant is situated at the end of the bay directly on the water. The patio overlooks the harbor and also the walls of old walls of Kotor. When we arrived we were promptly seated outside on the patio as requested. Service was excellent, wait staff was attentive and friendly. We ordered a few bottles of local wine as recommended... More

Amazing restaurant with a great view. We asked our hotel to make us a reservation for dinner on the same day. When we arrived the hostess refused to give us the table we want even though it was empty. After around 15 minutes another table got empty, we requested to be seated there yet she refused again even though it... More

We had seen all the reviews, so we were really looking forward to eating here. And we were totally not disappointed!  We had an absolutely amazing experience here, from walking in to an attractive purpose built space over the water, to the professional but personable staff, to the  comprehensive wine list, to the excellent dishes - and even the loos...

This restaurant had been recommended to us by Milos at Palazzo Drusko. Great setting. Friendly and helpful waiters. Catch of the day is just that - a choice of freshly caught fish - we had halibut - all priced at €59 kg - whereas all fish on the menu is farmed. Good to have the choice. Sensible recommendations Re wine,... More

A lovely restaurant with brill views across the water to the Kotor old town. The fish is fresh and tastes fantastic. We had a great time here and the staff were very friendly.

The view from the terrace is wonderful: all Kotor bay and its marina. The atmosphere is very relaxing, with nice tables and efficient service. The food is great. They have some real desserts. I ordered the apple crumble and it was very good.

Visited Galion as our last night in kotor. Pleased we saved the best until last! We didn't book but would advise you do. Can get busy if there is a cruise in town. You won't find a restaurant with a better setting and view. Service was impeccable, our wines were constantly topped up and were checked on throughout the evening.... More

Charming restaurant with a good view towards the bay. Not a panoramic view as the restaurant is at the sea level. Quality and service is average, below what you would expect from such a fancy restaurant. Price is above average though I would not rate it as expensive. Recommend it for a romantic dinner at sunset!

Agree on almost all comments, delicious food and polite service. We tried seafood pasta and risotto. Only problem is, portions are not satisfactory, you need more to stop your hunger.

Just returned from this place - seemingly the preferred choice of the cashed-up and undiscriminating. Cannot understand how such a poor restaurant has attracted so many positive reviews. Granted, the location is unbeatable and the service polite and attentive. But I'm happy to eat in a dank alleyway and be waited on by a Montenegran Basil Fawlty, so long as... More
