The grilled salmon was tasteless, as was the spinach and the potatoes. I could barely finish the meal. The place itself looked dirty and worn out. While the prices on the menu are very affordable, I would not recommend.

We ate here on our first night in Kotor & enjoyed it so much came back again. Food was really good with if portion sizes. The little square has a lot of atmosphere helped along by the candle light only at the tables. We were lucky enough to have a wonderful string quartet in the square on our first visit... More

The food is so good and the staff very polite, friendly and service minded. We have tried several dishes like the Scala Santi steak in rich tomato sauce, the fish was superb, as well the fish soup. The Njugeski steak was the best dish!

Friendly service and large portions in this fish restaurant. However the tuna I had was on the chewy side. Most of the fish dishes are served with potatoes and spinach. The restaurant is located on a small quiet square.

We had a short dinner in this. I knew for long tradition of venue. Service and food were average, suppose it was just that day. Small number of guests in the mid-of-season.

My friend and I (two ladies) dined at this restaurant recently. There were no prices on the wine menu so when we asked the price of a bottle of local house white wine we were told 10 Euros. We thought this was very reasonable so ordered a bottle. When our bill came only one person' food was printed on the... More

My guidebook (Bradt's Montenegro) rated this as one of the best restaurants in Kotor, with the only negative being high prices. I didn't think the prices were exorbitant or even exceptionally high (is this because I live in suburban New York?), but Bradt was right about the food, which was delicious. The spaghetti carbonara was the best I've ever eaten... More

After a warm time clubbing the steps, finding a cold 0.5 L beer was nice and cold. My wife had the Greek salad, me a caprese salad. Hers was decent sized and the feta was good-- overall a good value. my caprese was good with pesto instead of leAf basil. It was good as well. Decided to have another beer.... More

The food standards here aren't great - my seafood pasta came swimming in oil. The cats that come begging for food aren't attractive either. I do like the square where the restaurant is located though.
