We ended up at this place for dinner on recommendation from one of the locals. The atmosphere is ok and the food as well average. The grilled vegetables were tasty but the for meat loving persons it was a turn down. Not so sure about this place...

We ate at Bastion III early this evening having read reviews on Tripadvisor. The location was easy to find - just outside the Northern city gate, across the river and it's there right in front of you. The only other patrons inside were a group of elderly local men chatting away over vast amounts of food and a bottle of red wine... This was looking promising!
We ordered a mixed starter of salami and cheeses, a meat grill (noticing on the menu that it was marked as 500g - that's a LOT of meat!), a grilled vegetable platter, and a goulash with mashed potatoes, with a bottle of red wine. We were hungry (and thirsty) having travelled all day!
We were not disappointed. The food was great, the service attentive but not overbearing, and we left happily stuffed :-) Highly recommended for good honest food at reasonable prices. Our bill was under €35 for the both of us, and really we could not have eaten one more mouthful.

This is one of the only restaurants that sell traditional Montenegrian food that I could find, most just try to cater for tourists. Love the food here, kept on going back to the the lamb roast, still think of it from time to time. You cannot miss this place if you are going to Kotor.

Having read the other reviews we headed to Bastion III for lunch but didn't expect anything out of the ordinary. It probably didn't help that it was a rainy day but the outside area was incredibly dank and smelled of stale water so we decided to sit indoors which was marginally better.

We ordered lamb and the mixed grill platter both of which were tasty but very greasy. Portions are huge so you're not going to go hungry. Prices are very reasonable

It's also worth noting that there is another Bastion restaurant just inside the city walls and to find Bastion III you have to walk out of the North Gate, along the bridge and it's straight ahead just beyond the car park.

Overall, the place isn't awful but there are much better options around.

Just outside the old town by the river gate. Was recommended by a local working at a bar where we had a few beers. He suggested the fish soup as an authentic dish. There is a Bastion inside the walls but we were told it was more touristy.

€2,50 for the soup and €5,00 for the goulash (I kid you not). The soup was delicious and the goulash tender as can be. Spending less than $10 USD on a two course meal at a nice restaurant is wonderful.

I would go back here in a second if I'm ever back. The 5 stars comes from a combination of great food and excellent prices!
