Prices have definitely risen at Leonardo since the Lonely Planet broke the news of their solid pizzas. My favorite part was actually the walk to the restaurant, winding our way through residential streets and seeing things most tourists will probably never spot. While my guidebook says pizzas are in the five-euro range, we found they started closer to seven and easily surpassed ten if you wanted a wider assortment of toppings. There were few people dining in the restaurant and we found service to be a bit awkward. Still, it's probably one of the city's best crowd-pleasers.
Forum Cafe is located right across Republic Square in the heart of Podgorica. Although the area was dead as the last dodo bird, that kind of prime real estate came at a high price. After scoping the prices of the drinks we decided to go elsewhere for our dinner that night. Good thing- if this is what they do with a fine glass of Montenegrin wine, God only know what they'd do with pasta! On the plus side the patio was cooled by those cold-water misting fans, but prices really were so inflated that you'd be better off having a cool down in the river.
Basically located in a niche carved into Podgorica's stadium you'll find Skadarlija Restaurant, one of the few places open for breakfast in the city, and a simple, interesting place to sample Montenegro's culinary offerings. With no English menu and no English spoken, be prepared to play charades and have a good laugh with the staff. I stopped in for breakfast on their patio and enjoyed my cheese omelette and strong coffee. The sign you're looking for will read Скадарлија.
(If you were wondering, Skadarlija is a street and area in Belgrade, Serbia with a very boho, vintage feel).
On our first and only evening in Podgorica we found it a bit difficult to find a decent restaurant to start our holiday. We walked about the city centre and finally chose Restaurant Carine Centar for our dinner.
It has a large outdoor terrace, which was already packed with locals when we took a seat. Inside the restaurant has two floors. The ground floor is a mixture of bar, cafe and restaurant, whereas the upper floor is a more exclusive place.
On the ground floor and the outside terrace the menu offers dishes from the Montenegrin and Italian cuisine. I opted for a medium sized Pizza Vezuvio (3,40 Euro) and a large Niksicko beer (1,50 Euro).
My Pizza was tasty and filling. Our waiter was attentive, friendly and spoke English. So all in all I can recommmend the Restaurant Carine Centar.
Famous resort and restaurant Voda u Kršu, is the last station at the route of Podgorica-Petrovac, before you came at the Adriatic sea. Nice ambient, good food and drink, and chiep prices -and after renovation at the december of 2002., the service upped at the higher level.
