An interesting 10 minute excursion from the packed old town. Not much to see especially when there's a dirty great big cruise ship in the harbour. It's free so a good way to get 5 minutes away from the souvenir shops in the old town

After strolling around the crowded streets of Kotor's Old Town I was looking for a nice quiet place to have lunch. Two lovely German ladies recommended I climb the stairs to the top of the city wall and eat at Citadela. What wonderful advice! The restaurant is perched on the harborside of the top of the city wall. It is... More

My partner & I came to this restaurant as it it was rooftop with a great view of the port & entrance of old town. However from the start the service was horrible, a waiter approached us & blankly stared at us till we asked if we could please have some menus for lunch, we ordered drinks & lunch. The... More

How any cook can serve up the mess that was presented to me is beyond words. I had the spaghetti with white source and clams. What i received looked like it had been scraped up from behind the stove. There was no sign of white sauce and the pasta was dry to the point of being crunchy. The pizza looked... More

Although outside seems to be a little posh the prices are good and comparable to the rest of the city. Very pleasant service. Must advice Carnogursky Savinio (not sure about spelling )White wine and clams or any other sea food in here. Only sometimes music choice by staff was questionable (Spicegirls ? Is it real ?? ;) )

perfect to stop for a quiet drink, views are fantastic of the sea and mountains. Lovely spacious patio are, some undercover seating and some with fantastic views overlooking the walls to the water below. Service friendly and helpful. Had a pizza here which was very nice and was about $8.

We had been looking around Kotor for somewhere suitable to have lunch and this restaurant with its outdoor area seemed ideal as we could look across at the 'Thomson Dream', which was the cruise ship that we were travelling on. Prior to our cruise I had seen on TV that slow roasted lamb was a local speciality and indeed most,... More

When you visit Kotor you must climb the old ruins to the citadel that overlooks the beautiful old city and the gorgeous harbour. Surprisingly this is free, and you need no guide except your own common sense. This took us less than an hour and the view is more than impressive. We were fortunate to have a beautiful day unfold,... More

chose this restaurant based on location and the view did not disapoint. However food was average at best, and staff as seems to be the norm in montenegro sullen. Menu was at least varied with a good choice of drinks.
