Mercur System: Breakfast at the bus station
My girlfriend and I ate breakfast at Mercur System at Budva bus station during our visit to the city in May 2012.
We had just arrived on a bus from Herceg Novi and had a 20 minute wait until our bus to Sveti Stefan departed. It seemed like a good idea to grab a quick bite to eat at the station...and Mercur System, with its outdoor tables beneath a canopy of vine leaves and ivy, looked like the ideal place.
A couple of glass counters displayed a selection of breads, pastries, sandwiches, pizza slices and cakes.
I opted for the meat burek (1.50 Euros); a flaky pastry filled with spicy minced meat and much less greasy than much of the burek I have eaten on my visits to the Balkans.
Emma opted for a small pastry that resembled a miniature version of my burek (0.20 Euros) and a pitta bread with cevapi (kebabs) (1.50 Euros).
A good selection of savoury and sweet pastries for a quick breakfast at Budva bus station.
Pizana: Lunch with a view
You can’t beat the location of this restaurant, between Pizana beach and the marina, just outside the walls of the old town. I think there’s inside seating too, but you come first to the outside veranda and the view will probably keep you there. The beach and café/bar/restaurant space aren’t as large as what’s on the other side of the old town, and seating is more spread out, so I found it more pleasant for lunch and coffee.
They were in the process of changing menus, so most of what was listed as typical Montenegrin wasn’t available at the time. The food I had here on a couple of occasions (continental/Italian) was good, if surprisingly a bit bland (probably because I had just come from eastern Serbia, where food has strong flavors). Service was good, relaxed, and friendly.
Hotel dinner & breakfast
When I was acquiring for a room price offer at Avala Hotel they informed of a special half board offer which is including dinner and breakfast. Usually I wouldn’t take such offer but with the food it was cheaper then without it ;-) So that was the deal and we did had nice dinner and breakfast at that hotel at the nice top location with cool breeze in the evening and beautiful view for breakfast (image II)
I didn’t notice here any of the international fast food chains and those anyway are not missed anyway, is someone just want a snack or to gram something to eat the local traditional food vendors can offer nice choices of sandwiches, hamburgers, schnitzel, fish, salads etc.
You can find some good cheap options on the promenade, in front of the old city as well as in the old city itself.
Beach restaurant and cafe
If you happened to spend your time by the beach, there were few places restaurants and cafe that will serve you a drink or food where ever you are all the way to the waterline. I only had a drink in these places, not food so I can’t recommend any food, but the drinks were as good as anywhere else.
Shanghai China Restaurant: Chinese
Yes, also here there is one of these common Chinese restaurant, exactly like everywhere else in Europe, same menu, same taste, nothing special and if you been to such places around Europe this will be no deferent, however, if you haven’t try such before, maybe it is the time to try one now.
Restoran Jadran: Local Restaurant
Restaurant Jadran which is called in local Restoran Jadran is a perfect place for the tourist to try and taste some of the local food. It is located just outside the old town on the walkway by the by the small harbour. They serve traditional food and interesting fresh sea food. All with quick friendly service and a great sea view.
Restaurant and Cafe Mozart
Restaurant and Cafe Mozart is just by the main entry gate to the old town. It seems to be most popular and most touristic place but we gave it a shot and wanted to try it. Unfortunately they didn’t have any kremšnita here, so I picked up from the menu something that seems the closest to kremšnita (see image IV)
Oh well, yes, it was nice, but not as good as Samobor kremšnita, of course not ;-)
This restaurant was also one my favourite restaurants in the town and we even came back here as the food and service was so good :) It is in the right middle of the the heart of the old town and you can’t miss it. Good food, salads, drinks etc servers here.
This was probably my favourite cafe in the old town. This places called MB IceClub, I think they do serve ice-cream and cocktails, but I don’t really know, what I know that while hanging around in the old town I spotted this place just in one of the main small squares, a cool corner in the heat of the day, perfect for cup of cappuccino we well as for fresh juice cold drinks and cold beer of course.
Zeleni Gaj: Zeleni Gaj
Just behind Slovenska Plaza walking past one evening and were tempted. Good choice of local food on the menu and all very tasty. Mrs Bonio enjoyed her vegetarian meal too.
Busy, friendly, good food at a good price - enjoyed.
Old fisherman's pub: Old fisherman's pub
As the name suggests it's right by the harbour, the smell of the pizza oven is very enticing but we tried the shopska salad, very fresh and tasty, a couple of beers all at a good price, ideal spot for lunch.
Hong Kong: Hong Kong
Good Chinese food in a great location inside the old town. Outside eating area in good weather. A popular restaurant, get there early.
Food very tasty, Mrs Bonio had many vegetarian options. Try the almonds with honey.
O Sole Mio: O sole mio
Undecided where to eat one evening, happened to be walking past this one so, choice made.
Good choices on the menu, barbecue pork for me and vegetarian pizza for Mrs Bonio, very thin and crispy and probably the biggest pizza we have ever seen, it fed us for lunch the next day too! prices good.
Some pretty good live music on as well, recommended.
