Visited this wonderful restaurant for lunch whilst on our recent cruise. Had been introduced to their great food, service and ambience by some friends last year who frequent there often and our return visit did certainly not disappoint. The fresh fish selection was second to none, presentation and taste of all our chosen dishes was delightful. Had originally thought that we would stay in the main town this time, but after looking in a few places we decided to return to this wonderful place and after a short 4 euro taxi ride we are certainly glad we did. Not cheap but then for the quality and excellent service it is worth every Euro. Well done, we cannot wait to return.

The restaurant has excellent views of Kotor Bay and the surrounding mountains, especially the bit that extends onto the water. The service was excellent, as was the food that I ordered. They also had an extensive range of desserts (placed directly in front of the hotel's glassed-window gym!) that included cakes and ice creams. However, my friend was not terribly impressed with her food (although she liked my choice), particularly when the chocolate soufflé was a chocolate fondant.

Additionally, be aware of the restaurant's unnecessary cost. I was aware that the restaurant would be expensive given the hotel it was associated with. However, I have never ever seen fresh fruit juice priced at 10 Euros!!! A lot of their dishes were atleast twice as expensive than what I would normally be prepared to pay at an expensive restaurant.

If you are prepared to overlook their prices, I'd highly recommend this restaurant for its ambiance (particularly if you are staying in Dobrota).

Booked a table by the bay. An excellent setting and one of the most exquisite views I've ever experienced. Waiter seemed very genuine and presented us with the fish special which encompassed 4 courses of beautiful fresh fish styled on French bistro cuisine.

All of this was perfect. I even asked for some local wine to go with the food and this was matched well enough.

Deserts were incredible. I recommend the chocolate soufflé.

The bill came. €230. €50 of which for wine that costs €6 in a supermarket. Dissapointing value really.

We had a great time though so I presented the waiter with €250 as I had no change. He came back 2 minutes later and thanked me for my generosity.

Tipping is not customary in Montenegro and this is the first time in any restaurant that a waiter pocketed the difference. I felt embarrassed for him and we made our way without creating a scene.

Be aware of this if you visit here. It could blow your Montenegro budget!

Seated on the Bay of Kotor at sunset while eating at the Forza Mare was our most romantic evening of our entire three week visit to Croatia and Montenegro. The staff was attentive and helpful without being overbearing. We felt we had the entire bay to ourselves as we enjoyed an excellent dinner of Ston mussels, seabass and Zlahtina wine.
