Directions to Galion
It has been said that dining within the city walls of Kotor, it is hard to see 'the forest from the trees' and the mediocre restaurants often overshadow the hidden gems.
So visitors should venture a little further away, to Galion on the other side of the harbour. Ranked no. one restaurant in Kotor by Trip Advisor, this is the spot that cannot be missed when visiting the town. The restaurant literally sits on a terrace perched above the blue ocean and with 180-degree glass walls, diners can look back on the historical old walls of Kotor. This has recently been renovated and is now much bigger for all those who want to sit outside on a warm day when the breeze makes its way off the water. The front façade of the building is also an impressive welcome and makes the extra walk rewarding.
However it is not only the architecture, which wins visitors over. The food matches the high standard set by the environment - there is a sophisticated fish menu, and staff bring out the fresh catch and help guests choose their dish. These are generally served with oils and garlic for a simple and fresh tasting meal. There is also an international menu, perfect for any diner's tastes which features mushroom soup and tartufee oil, risotto with avocado and spices and a wide-ranging wine list to accompany your meal.
The tasteful and impressive décor at Galion is fortunately matched by the food and the service that guests will find here; the cost remains reasonable and makes this the number one destination for guests in Kotor, if not the whole of Montenegro.
