This was recommended by our tour guide for lunch on a cold rainy day which was perfect to go there. Rarely have I been in such a genuine Family run restaurant which really looks after its customers. We 4 were impressed from the moment we stepped inside this rustric compact Gem by everything we saw. Starting with a Grappa to... More

We have been visiting Kotor for many years and we haven't found a bitter place to eat. For food ,friendliness and situation. Have the grilled squid. It is the best. But all is good.

Had the particular pleasure of Shrimp Risotto for Lunch on Thursday, and fresh, grilled Sea Bass, with fries, on Saturday! On cool November days, not only was the food superbly cooked, by Vesna, the service by Ivana was warm,welcoming, and a delight. Over many visits, and many years I have come to appreciate the consistent excellence of Cesarica and its... More

My husband took the fish plate which came with mussels, squid, prawns and a whole sea bass. I took the grilled sea bass with fries. Both were simply delicious. The fish were grilled to perfection, with tender meat and crispy skin. I wasn't expecting much from the fries since most places don't prepare it very well, but the fries here... More

Our friends recommended Cesarica, so we decided to visit it this spring during our stay in Kotor. It's nice and cozy restaurant that makes you feel like at home. Food was delicious, fresh and extremely well cooked. Portions were really big, but I managed to eat all. My highlight was dessert "Krempita" which was the best that I have ever... More

Amazing authentic delicious food. We had a fun night having dinner, drinks and listening to music. Fresh seafood, I recommend the prawn stuffed squid and lovely starters. We also met up with some locals and had great conversation.

This restaurant is hidden down a side street within the old walls. It is not aimed at tourists at all, and sitting both inside and outside is lovely. Inside, the stone walls are full visible. The food is delicious, and well cooked. Mostly based on seafood dishes, which are simple but so well done. We ate here twice as it... More
