Sitting under a fashionable sun shade or out in the beautiful sunshine on the elegant terrace of the Hotel Vardar in the main square in Kotor, one feels here is a place that really is moving forwards with more energy and independent spirit than ever. Service is always with a big smile, and every member of staff speaks English.
The people of Kotor see that tourism and the service industry is growing and they are capitalising whilst still somehow maintaining the quaint, quiet charm of this fabulous city. Loyal to their culture, the food is mostly local Montenegrin, delicious charcuterie and cheeses produced from pigs, goats and sheep that graze in the hills surrounding the Boka Bay, along with a wide selection of fresh fish and local Montenegrin wines, the food served has a strong Mediterranean influence but with a very local feel. Foreign produce is available (but at a price!) and the local fare is delicious! For the best food in Kotor exit the old walls through the port gates and stroll along the pretty quay to the other side of the marina and dine at the super chic Galion.
Here the large wooden terrace extends over the glistening water of Boka Bay and gently laps beneath you whilst you delight in a divine fine dining experience whilst enjoying fabulous views of the city lights at night. For those arriving in Kotor by yacht, the port is not huge and constitutes the main harbour wall but welcomes yachts of all sizes. Kotor is an exceptional yacht charter destination with more and more guests wishing to experience this magical place.
