Confession time . . . I like food and I do like to spoil myself with a good meal when I travel (especially if recommended by a local). Sometimes they are a gastronomic experience and other times an ‘adventure’. Then there are times when the food is completely overshadowed by its surroundings. Konoba Catovica Mlini is one such place. Located in the village of Morinj, this restaurant was once a mill a long time ago. But it has been converted to a restaurant (Konoba) and today Lazar Catovic runs this delightful place which has been in his family for nearly two hundred years! In fact, Catovica Mlini simply means Catovic’s Mills, a tribute to his family’s history. What a great story.
Surrounded by quaint bridges and running water, I could not help but be mesmerized by this place. It is simply splendid.
The entrance to the restaurant with bamboos on both sides (Walking ahead is Petar our guide)
The seating area surrounded by crystal clear flowing water (and ducks!!)
View from our table at lunch
Walking path to explore the grounds (not a bad way to walk off lunch)
And lets not forget about the food! ( Don’t really know much about taking shots of food but here are some shots of our lunch)
We stopped here driving on our way from Kotor to Budva. It is only a 30 minute drive from Kotor and we stopped by Perast on the way. So if you are ever in the area, this place is definitely a treat, if not a feast for the eyes.
