Located just past Kotor in the direction of Dubrovnik, Stari Mlini (the Old Mill) is a beautiful seaside restaurant. Situated where a small stream meets the bay (thus the location of the old mill) it is a dream to sit out on a lovely day and just stare out at the water. Seafood is the highlight and the menu is...

Lovely place with water mill, pathways, stunning views of Kotor Bay and trout and sea bass ponds so we decided to try it out. Ordered trout, sea bass and mussels but unfortunately all were off the menu! Considering the ponds were literally teeming with fish we found this a little odd. So we asked for an alternative, being offered a... More

Everything you need in perfect place: food, service, location and ambient. Prices are high but it's worth. I don't know what to ask more from such restoran.

beautiful surroundings and delicious food, but most menu dishes were not available and the service was inhospitable. Overall, low value for money, won't go back.

I know that this restaurant is more expensive than others. I know this restaurant is maybe too expensive, but I also know that you aren't coming here only to eat, you are going here for experience. From entrance to the table, you will be 😶. I adore everything about this restaurant. I like food, interior, smell, sound of sea while... More

We traveled to a number of countries on our last expedition. I saw this referenced in Travel and Leisure and made a note of it. We had a driver, Slavko, who took us around. When I mentioned Stari Mlini, he grinned, it is in his home town and he agreed, it is wonderful. We found a wonderful wine, and decided... More

A good 20 mins fast rib from Tivat gets you through the awe inspiring gap between the mountains into Kotor bay. It felt so James Bondish to hoof across mirror glazed waters and then come alongside Stari Mlini's private stone jetty. Prob about 15 mins drive from Kotor- but much much nicer by boat ! The restaurant is an old... More

It's a beautiful place with tables spread out among different pockets of the premise. The natural surroundings and the restaurant itself makes you feel nice no matter where you sit, as long as you don't mind the smokers sitting at the table next to you (big problem for non-smokers in Europe.) The food was just OK, but fairly expensive. Service... More

Really nice location but better for lunch than dinner. The views on the bay are amazing at daytime. The food is a little bit average however the signature octopusdish is amazing. But quite expensive 44€ for two. Not the best restaurant in the area, but not a bad one. International winelist.

Steak over cooked. Charged for sirloin told they had run out and it would be rump which we accepted but then overcooked. Given "complimentary" liqueur then later found we had been charged for them! Beautiful setting but food less than average for the price of 150 euro for 3. Huge hype locally but does not deliver.
