Galion is one of Kotor’s most popular restaurants
Kotor restaurants are sure to be one of the highlights of staying in or visiting Kotor – whether it’s Montenegrin or international cuisine that you’re looking for.
There are some well-known ones like Galion (pictured above) and there are some hidden gems… keep reading for those!
As with all restaurants on the Montenegrin coast, seafood features highly on most menus. I recommend trying:
Calamari – grilled, fried or stuffed
Black risotto made with cuttlefish ink
Mussels in white or red ‘buzara’ – perfect teamed with crusty, fresh bread.
Barbecued bream with silverbeet – this silverbeet will convert even the biggest vege-phobes!
If you’re not into seafood, don’t worry. There are still plenty of mouth-watering meat and vegetarian dishes for you. Look out for:
Cevapi – Balkan sausages
Pljeskavica – Balkan hamburger
And then you get to my favourite… dessert! While in Montenegro you must try krempita – a local cream pie with flakey pastry and a thick vanilla filling. My other favourites are:
Baklava – layers of filo pastry with a walnut filling that’s soaked in syrup
Pancakes – not reserved for breakfast here, this is a popular dessert and snack
Any of the creamy, melt in your mouth cakes that you’ll see on display at cafes
Last, but not least, a summer must – ice cream!
