We went for dinner at this restaurant after seeing its rating on Tripadvisor and as usual Tripadvisor knows best! We ordered seafood platter for two and it was awesome - They perfectly split it for two - two types of fish fresh from the sea, mussles, prawns, squid, the rice was very nice, the mash was excellent. We ordered different wines and the wine was actually just ok but it's only because we wanted different types of wine.
It comes to a bit pricey but if we had the same platter in New York we would pay twice as much (we each paid about USD45). We both had soups for starter.
I would highly recommend this hotel and please do not confuse it with another restaurant on the same corner which also carries the name Konoba. It turns out konoba means a tavern.

The food is indeed good and probably authentic, but there is more than one thing that, in our opinion, did not match the high standards that other reviews talk about. Let's start with the live music: it's played at a volume that makes it hard to speak to the person you have right in front of you. It becomes very annoying.
The service: sloppy, not attentive at all. We had the plates of the appetizer on the (large) table all the way through the main course.

Prices are ok. Overall, not recommended for dinner.

This is one of the best resturants in Budva. Must have dishes are:
Hobotica pod sacem that is octopus steamed with vegetables for four hours (must call to order in advance)
Hot salat with octopus and polenta
St.Peter's filet
Sea food on wooden sticks
That can be accompanied by great Croatian wines
Great view and sea breeze to make your day.
You may refer to Alex to get absolute best quality treatment....
Enjoy your meal...and you will surely come back with pleasure.

Me and my new wife went to Becici in Montenegro for our honeymoon. After strolling around the Old Town in Budva one evening we decided to eat at Stari Grad. A decision that turned to be a great idea.

Firstly, the place itself is loosely based on a Spanish taverna where the focus is the food and not elaborate decor as our attentive waiter informed us. The male waiter (sorry, I didn't catch his name) chatted to us about the restaurant, the food and just things in general to make us feel at ease.

The food was delicious with the special of the day recommended to us, a clay pot roasted lamb which was so tender it melted in the mouth.

If you're in Budva Old Town, I recommend you track this restaurant down.
