We dined here three times during our stay in Kotor, it was that enjoyable. The deck seating with gorgeous views of the bay and the nearby old town is of course the best, but on one night when it was pouring rain, we found the indoor seating with huge windows pleasant as well. Service is very good. One of their waiters who has excellent fluency in English - as well as in Russian, Montenegrin, French and who knows what else - and is very cordial (unlike, I'm sorry to say, all but one other Kotor resident we encountered) was a big factor in our dining there so many times. I wish we had gotten his name so we could have commended him to the management. But that's not to say the food isn't worth coming back for, because we definitely enjoyed it. The vegetable risotto is very good, and the whole fish we shared one evening was very fresh and perfectly cooked. My husband enjoyed the fish soup as well. Don't miss Galion if you are in Kotor!

This is a stylish, beautifully presented restaurant with delicious food. The setting is stunning, right at the end of the beautiful Bay of Kotor, looking down the whole fjord with the old town on the right. We had a wonderful family meal to celebrate the end of our holiday in Kotor and were lucky to get a table right on the water. Probably a little pricey for everyday eating but perfect for as the ending to a fabulous holiday.

Best restaurant in Kotor. Very scenic setting, practically on the sea. An elegant, modern and refined often with live music. Uniformed waiters are professional enough and kind too. The dishes are of good quality, (but I don't recommend the soups), ok for the fish and good meat, too. A suitable restaurant to celebrate our first night in Kotor.

We were driving into Kotor to find our vacation rental and made a right hand turn into what we thought was a street but was, instead, a passage that ended at this lovely restaurant. Exhausted and daunted by the drive from north of Dubrovnik, we stopped and were delightfully surprised to experience such a great place AND to learn that it is considered one of Kotor's best dining spots -
and that is what you do here - you dine! The view is privileged (in every respect), the food is really good, the design modern and cool, the service surprisingly friendly and the prices are reasonable for where you are and what you're eating! How can you beat that? I can see that it might be difficult to get a table there without a res, but again, we lucked out with the last two seater right on the water.

Ideal place to have some dinner in kotor. The most romantic, best view, and most pleasant staff in Montenegro. Food was of good quality and quantity. Fine selection of wine too.
