Came here at 7pm and it was deserted. We wondered around for a bit admiring the views which were lovely waiting to be approached by the waitress who was roaming around. There was a table close to the bar full if what looked like staff eating their dinner which wasn't really a problem but after 10 minutes and finding a drinks menu on a table we approached the waitress who was now behind the bar and asked if we could order some drinks. We were very abruptly told that we could not just order drinks and only dinner and she then proceeded to walk off. Very rude unhelpful and will not be returning. Don't really understand the logic but treated very badly.

Enter the Old City by the front entrance. Turn left, carry straight on, up some stairs and turn left. We went here after being recommended by our landlord for the few days we were there on vacation. I enjoyed the view at night. Definitely go at night, not during the day. It's very dark and romantic (use your tea-light to see your menu) and you can sit for hours and the staff doesn't mind a bit. They are very attentive and helpful. Food is average for Kotor. Typical fare of meats or pizza.
We enjoyed 4 drinks a piece. All mixed drinks and that helped spread the time out. A very nice place to go to relax and unwind. You will be treated very kindly by a helpful staff.

Having visited here a few times for drinks( we liked the views), we decided to eat here on our last night. The menu is similar to most restaurants in Kotor ( pizza, pasta, seafood). As in Kotor, the menus lose something in translation and very often don't match the photograph shown so my choice of food was something of 'pot luck'. I actually ended up with a very passable seafood risotto which was reasonably priced. Citadela is worth a visit for a reasonably priced meal with good views!

Visited Citadel in July after reading good reviews on Trip Advisor.

Although the restaurant itself was in a wonderful setting with excellent views of the walls the service was poor and we felt like we were being rushed from our table.

The food was good and I really enjoyed the pizza that I ordered however it was very difficult to eat it because it was very dark where we were sitting. Our table was eliminated by just a single tea light candle. Romantic and ideal for drinks but a nuisance in this situation.

Still perhaps if you visited the restaurant in the early evening you wouldn't feel the same as I did.

We stayed at hotel Cattaro, so we went to the Citadela a few times for drinks and once for dinner. During the daytime it was a nice, quiet place where we could sit and drink some cocktails. It has a great view and they play 80's music (I'm sorry, but I like that...). The food was ok. Not spectacular but not at all bad either. The waiter, Igor, made our stay so good! He has a good sense of humor! Would go back there again.
