We’re incredibly proud of the food, wine and overall culinary experiences offered here at Cattaro Hotel. From our daily morning breakfast on the balcony overlooking The Square of Arms to our special Chef’s Night series events featuring bespoke, wine-paired menus by our head chef and visiting chef’s from across the region, we take cuisine seriously.
However, like anything else at our property, our food is only as good as our team. That’s why we’re grateful to have the talented Bojan Fržović, head chef of Cattaro Hotel.
How do you deliver an authentic Montenegrin culinary experience to hotel guests?
Exclusively domestic products, which are very rich- it’s only that they are not commercialized in the right way they deserve. However, it’s very important that guests have the chance to try our domestic products.
What are the highlights of the hotel’s breakfast? Brunch?
The top breakfast ingredients are exclusively of domestic origin like bread below the sač, cheese pie, spinach and cabbage, smoke domestic products, cheeses in oil (goat and cow cheeses) and Njegoš prosciutto, domestic jams and juices such as elderflower, currants, cranberries, rose hip… The accent must be placed on domestic teas with the irresistible honey we’re proud of!
Which meals come the most highly recommended?
The snack – you can say it’s a almost-forgotten in-between meals dish, but I think that with a little effort, it won’t be difficult to make it to remind us of regular and healthy nutrition.
What is your process for planning meals for corporate clients or couples planning their destination weddings at the property?
The selection of good foodstuffs is wide. It’s a little problem that they don’t exist in great quantities, but if we combine that quality which we have and we move ahead without some standards which were set years back, I think that we can have a very good offer.
It requires a little more work to join the north and south to provide guests with the traditional quality products of Montenegro.
Which 3 Montenegrin dishes would you recommend to first-time visitors to Kotor?
First it depends on the client’s wishes and the setup of guests attending the wedding, party, et al. We compile the menu and make one unique experience. I give the potential client the ability to try as many different meals as possible. It’s most important that we first listen to our client and his or her wishes, then after we use our extensive experience to give advice or compile a menu we believe to be tailor-made to the setup of attending guests. We primarily place the accent on domestic dishes and our quality meat and fish.
We recommend octopus below the sač, fish and lamb stew in milk, but of course, I hope that in the future it will be between meals that will be improved, modernized, and commercialized. I will work on this personally.
Do you have any new menu offerings coming soon you’d like to share?
I have more meals, but I would single out veal steak with currant sauce, marinated lamb prepared for 12 hours, roasted in salt and octopus salad and smoked rib eye steak and crab tail in a sauce of honey, almonds and lime.
