'Jagnjetina ispod sača' is the meal for lamb lovers. Veal tastes good as well but our favourite has been lamb always. This delicious meal is cooked under 'sach' (iron lid) with potatoes for minimum 3-4 hours. If you are going to this restaurant with group of people, book in advance and tell them what you will have otherwise, as we... More

I've been to Stara Kuca for a couple of receptions and once for dinner with a group. Their reservation system is not the smoothest (I tried making a reservation through the website, and it wasn't really clear that it went through), but the service and ambiance are fantastic, and the food is really good as well. At one dinner we... More

This restaurant has great ambient made from stone and wood. Service was not so good as we wait for the waiter for a long time to order.They serve traditional Montenegrin food in the restaurant, so if you are vegetarian here is nothing you can order except seasonal salad and mushrooms that are not well prepared. Prices are higher then in... More

Traditional Montenegrin charm and food in a rustic setting. The milieu is heavy on stone and timber giving you the impression you are in some type of 14th century castle or inn. The food was spectacular. The lamb was the best I ever had. Prices are reasonable and all the food was served communal style on big slabs of wood,... More

Delicious slow cooked veal with potatoes, a simple green salad and a bottle of local red wine. We highly recommend this meal. The restaurant was different and cool. We sat outside in a garden that looked like it was inside a castle or something. A large space. The toilet was not so nice, but it worked.

This restaurant has an amazing ambience, looks like a little village with a church and a few bars or restaurants with a huge central place in the middle. Nice to sit down in the shade of the vineyard, have some traditional meals of Montenegro, prepared on open fire, under the bell (under the "sach"), or try a few cold appetizers... More

This is a gem that's a bit hard to find, off the beaten path but is really spectacular to visit. They alfresco dining spring, summer and fall and you are surrounded by grape vines and an amazing assortment of fruit trees. It's all stone and in the winter and cooler months you are inside with huge stone fireplaces. The ambience... More
