We had diner in Bastion, restaurant located in the old town of KOTOR, recommended by hotel. Good service. We were served with an excellent fish.

Our tour guide recommended this restaurant for lunch being the closest to where we were at that time. She warned us of the usually subpar service in Kotor by half-seriously saying that “they don’t want to work that hard”. There were seven in our party. We were greeted by a rather surly server. Perhaps it was a language barrier, but... More

We made a day trip to Kotor from Dubrovnik and we decided to have lunch in Bastion. The place is in a small, beautiful square north of the old town. Food was simple but good (we had moules frites); choice of beverages was reduced. Service is just fine and price is affordable. I would recommend for a quick lunch.

The John Dory was beautiful, the salad looked rather tired and the chard and potatoes lacked freshness which given the overall price was not impressive. What I really question is being told that the tap water in the old town is undrinkable. Unfortunately, it was my first meal in Kotor so I believed my waiter and paid 1.5 euros for... More

Bastion is slightly away from the main tourist areas in the old town, but old Kotor is very compact and nowhere is far to walk. Not too touristy, but located in a lovely square and we ate outside. Large (shared) hors d'oeuvre followed by fish kebab and grilled Sea Bream, bot well cooked and tasty. Pleasnt competent service. Definitely worth... More

We wanted to eat inside the old city and decided to give Bastion a try. Glad we did. We got a great seat by the window looking out to the courtyard and settled in for a lovely, leisurely lunch. Fish was on our mind that day and our server brought out a platter of the day's catch and we opted... More

The owner of our apartment in Kotor suggested this restaurant and we were pleased that he did. It offers the best seafood in Kotor Old Town and does so with style. The place does not look like much from the outside, but the interior is well appointed. The catch of the day is brought right to your table on a... More

Had lunch recently here on our Kotor visit with our cruise. The food was outstanding. Waiter recommendations were excellent. Had grilled fish that was caught that morning and it did not disappoint. Next time we are in Kotor this will be my go-to place!!

There are a number of Bastion restaurants in Kotor. This one is just inside the North Gate of Kotor's Old Town. 5 of us visited for a late lunch on a Friday afternoon and sat on a table a few feet away from the restaurant. The restaurant claims to have the best seafood in Kotor. I haven't visited every other... More

We choose this restaurant as it is recommended in the Lonely Planet Montenegro and we were not disappointed. The seafood was fresh and the service was quick and friendly. We were lucky with the weather so sat outside in the square and took in the beautiful surroundings. The restaurant is also well priced and easy to find so definitely worth... More
