Top five bars and cafes

Posted By Explore Montenegro on 30/01/2013



Welcome to our new blog, where we plan to share key information with you about what to do in Montenegro, direct from the people who know.  The information we are going to provide here is from a variety of sources - those who are locals or currently living there,  as well as some of our guests who have been kind enough to give us some feedback and help provide useful information for other guests.

Below you will find the first list from “Our Man On The Ground” with his favourite Top 5 Bars and cafes for 2013…..





Tivat, Porto Montenegro

Porto Montenegro's flagship bar and restaurant is one of the most stylish places on the coast.  The perfect place to enjoy a Sunday brunch, or to sit back and enjoy a Mediterranean dinner with an Italian twist.  Serving exquisite fresh fish and a wide selection of wine, this is a top spot to people watch as rich and glamorous yacht owners moor their pride and joy on Jetty one.  

Bajova Kula 

Morinj, Inner bay of Kotor

The Bajova Kula Bar is considered to be the best in that area, a very relaxing bar on the seafront on the bay of Kotor.  Renowned for pontoon swimming, a trip to Kotor often leads to long days dipping in and out of the bay’s waters, which can make for a big appetite come lunchtime.  Morinj is a small village on the edge of the bay where swimmers can rest under the wild plum, orange and fig trees before heading to Bajova Kula for a cold glass of Montenegro’s trademark Niksic beer.  It is known for its stunning bay on the Adriatic Sea and its well-preserved medieval streets, making it one of the biggest tourist attractions in the country. Of huge historical and cultural importance, Kotor has been listed by UNESCO as a 'World Natural and Historical Heritage Site', and the picturesque city holds a special fascination for visitors to Montenegro.


Caffe Bar Nauticaa 

Herceg Novi

Vasa Djukovica 24, Herceg Novi, Montenegro, Montenegro.  This bar is at the heart of the marina in Herceg Novi.  It is a fabulous family café with excellent cocktails and free WiFi.

Hemmingways Cafe and Bar


Perched on the edge of Budva’s sea wall, children are likely to be drawn to Hemmingways to sample some of its venetian-inspired icecream that Montenegrins rely on to cool down under the hot Adriatic sun.  Located just outside Budva Old Town on the promenade, the prices are reasonable and the portions are large.  Great place to watch the world go by.


Forza Café 

Kotor Old Town

This café is in  Kotor Old Town, on the left of the main square as you enter through the main gate.  You are spoilt for choice in Kotor with the walled town providing rows of bustling cafes and restaurants, the best time of day to visit Forza is early evening, when the locals are out passing the time and catching up as the weather begins to cool.  It sells some of the best cakes in Kotor, to be enjoyed while admiring the town’s old clock tower and planning how you are going to climb the city walls.
