“All round excellence... With a smile.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

We ate at this restaurant a couple of times during our stay near Kotor but we would happily have eaten there every day. We weren't initially that enamoured with the location of our apartment and, as this restaurant was just down the road and near to a couple of rather 'pedestrian' places, we unfairly overlooked it at first but hunger and a need to feed the kids quick, took us in one day.
It was without doubt the finest dining experience we had in Montenegro and one of my all time travel/food highlights. The restaurant itself sits right on the waters edge with little either side of it so you get an unparalleled view of the bay whilst you enjoy the ludicrously good fish and seafood. We opted for a rather large, fresh-caught bass (it had been landed that day) to share between the two of us. It was the finest fish I've eaten. Cooked simply with a herb and garlic marinade it was served with potatoes and Swiss chard. Both my wife & I agreed that we could have easily eaten it again.
Our children (3 & 1) plumped for spaghetti bolognase and wolfed it down.

As for the kids, it's one of the few places we found in Monetnegro that actually had a high chair...

The staff were wonderfully friendly, helpful and chatty when you wanted them to be. They treated the kids like guests and made us feel welcome the moment we sat down. I've been in high-class restaurants that would be put solidly in the shade by the service at this place.

If you do find yourself in Montenegro and anywhere near Kotor you will be doing yourself a great disservice if you don't give this place a try.

“A wonderful meal in an amazing location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

We ate three times at this lovely restaurant during our five night stay on the Bay of Kotor.
Situated on the very edge of this sunken canyon on the Adriatic, the restaurant served excellent food, with knowledgeable waiters helping us in our choices.

We sat outside for our two evening meals and one breakfast, with stunning views of the grey blue mountains that make the Bay of Kotor one of the most beautiful places on the Adriatic coast. The fish we ordered was cooked simply but the flavours were wonderful. The house wine complimented the food and the bill was very pleasant viewing at the end of the meal.

On the Sunday night, they also had a very good singer guitarist performing, which just made the place magical.
