If you like meat, Balkan grill should be on your list of things to try... and Tri Lipe  is the place to try it.

Tri Lipe - meaning Three Lime Trees - is a popular open-air grill restaurant near Herceg Novi marina. As the name suggests, it lies under three linden trees and is tucked away up a flight of stairs towards the old town.

It'd be easy to miss, except for the fact that it's usually packed out in summer - and wherever you see a grill restaurant full of locals in the Balkans, you know the food is great!

The open air dining under the trees is wonderful in the warmer months and the lights strung between the trees provide an intimate ambiance. The tables are quite close together however, so it's perhaps not the kind of intimate ambiance for a romantic dinner with your significant other!

Tri Lipe's Menu

Balkan grill includes 'cevapi' (Balkan sausages) and 'pljeskavica' (Balkan hamburger patties) which are made of beef and pork then seasoned and barbecued over an open flame. The end result is a mouthwatering piece of succulent meat which is served with raw onion and fries.

If you're with a group I'd recommend trying their mixed grill which includes cevapi, pljeskavica, steak, kebabs and fries. Each person then orders their own side salad and it's all topped off with homemade bread.

This is simple and classic food that will satisfy the hungriest carnivore. 

As well as Balkan grill, they serve a selection of fresh, traditional Montenegrin seafood dishes such as whole bream and calamari. 

They also have a lovely cake display, so you'll want to save room for dessert!

If you're short on time and want a burger, this is also the place for you! They have a to-go counter where you can get a famous Balkan hamburger hot off the grill. You order the type of meat you'd like and then add your own toppings like salad veges, mayo, ajvar (a roasted capsicum spread) and chilli.
