There are a lot of Kotor Bay restaurants for you to choose from when you're here. These restaurants really have something for everyone and there's a range of price points to suit everyone.
In the Bay of Kotor, you're spoiled for choice when it comes to restaurants that serve excellent local and international cuisine. Whatever your taste or budget, you'll find something you love close to where you're staying.
Whether it's a simple 'burek' from the local bakery or you splurge on a delicious seafood meal at Catovica Mlini (above) - there's plenty here to make sure you go home with your clothes just a liiiittle bit tighter than when you arrived.
We recommend trying several 'konobas' during your stay. Konobas are typical Montenegrin, coastal restaurants and serve seafood, meat baked under a sac, cheese specialties and home-baked bread. These restaurants that will offer you great food and an unforgettable Montenegrin experience – be it seafood or meat-based dishes that you prefer.

Don't be put off by the name! Feral is a great restaurant right on the marina in Herceg Novi which offers huge meals at really reasonable prices.
You can't go home without trying Balkan grill in Montenegro. Tri Lipe is the place to do it - enjoy famous Balkan meat dishes hot off the grill and under the stars.
If you only go to one restaurant in Montenegro, make it this one. This is one of the best Kotor Bay restaurants.
If you really want to try authentic Montenegrin seafood, you absolutely can't go past Konoba Ribar. Seaside dining and a super-fresh menu make this place a hit with locals and tourists alike.
Named after the afternoon breeze that sweeps in to cool you in summer, this restaurant is another one of our favourites which we’ve visited too many times to count. It’s on the Lustica Peninsula side of the Bay of Kotor, about 15 minutes’ drive from Tivat or Kotor.
For a more modern menu that also blends the best Montenegrin ingredients, I love Papagaj. Their pizza is also the best I've had in Montenegro. Add in sea views and there are so many reasons to check out Papagaj.
Local's Tip: Just about wherever you go you'll find barbecue stands that offer Balkan hamburgers – your choice of meat wrapped in a giant bun with salad and toppings. These are a great quick bite and at around €3 each are excellent value.
