Top five restaurants in Montenegro

Posted By Explore Montenegro on 30/01/2013

Stari Mlini “Old Mill”


Situated in Ljuta, 15 minutes drive from Kotor, the former 16th century flour mill Stari Mlini’s idyllic setting is only a short drive from Perast.  Head here after visiting the famed Our Lady of the Rock church that so many visitors to Montenegro flock to see.  A secluded outdoor terrace allows guests to relax to the sound of the water wheel turning the bay’s crystal clear water while the huge wine collection and locally sourced fish provide an ample feast for a long languid afternoon.  It is one of the more expensive restaurants, but certainly worth it.This is, towards Perast.  An amazing setting right on the sea in a beautifully restored water-mill.  Perfect for a long late lunch on a sunny afternoon.


Catovici  Mlini


This is a particularly good restaurant for children as it offers a small children’s play area and great lawns for children to run about on.  Similar to Stari Mlini, Catovici Mlini is expensive, but perfect for a holiday hight or special occasion.


Lazar Catoric owns this stunning restaurant situated in Morinj, 30 minutes drive from Kotor, 15 minutes past Perast.  Set 250m back from the sea amid small streams that rise in the water meadow.  The Catoric family has owned the Mill buildings for two hundred years, providing plenty of time for them to hone their culinary skills.  


Konoba Feral


One of the best restaurants  in Herceg Novi, situated near the marina, by the steps that take you down from the old town.  The ‘Konoba’, the Montenegrin word for restaurant, prides itself on a wide array of fresh seafood and is well-frequented by locals keen to sample the grilled squid, octopus and lobster dishes served on platters alongside local vegetables and wine.  You will leave with a full stomach, and maybe some small change left in your wallet – its not cheap, but the fish to euro ratio is strong.


Konoba Stari Grad


Located just inside the entrance of the walled Old Town in Budva, Konoba Stari Grad warms its guests in the winter and cools them in the summer with its old stone walls peppered with Montenegrin artwork, charms and memorabilia.  If you are lucky, you’ll hear live music from its resident guitar player while you enjoy its specilaity fish dishes including large plates of langoustines, squid ink risotto and mussels caught locally.  This can be popular to make sure you book.


Al Posto Giusto


A great lunch spot overlooking the jetty at Porto Montenegro in Tivat. The prices are a lot better value that you may assume on arrival, with its luxurious interior and views over the port.  The pizzas are the best option due to the wood-burning oven producing incredible thin-crust pizzas for a very reasonable price.  Prices may increase with the popularity of trendy Porto Montenegro soaring, so get there quick.  A good value option for those unable to splash out for One.
