Very nice atmosphere with good wine selection an affordable menues for this quality kind-of-a-slowfood restaurant. They even have a piano inside, and I was lucky enough to come on a LP etno band night, and what a vibe it was!

We had here a good lunch, eating a pork tenderloin with mashed potatoes, which was really good! The rest of the menu is Italian style for the most, but it is all good cooked and tasty. It is not so elegant, but you can have a good friendly time here. We payed 20€ each.

If you are looking for Slovene food with Mediterranean touch go to XXI. They make all sorts of food and drinks themselves: homemade pasta,homemade ice-tea, brownie with vanilla source and seasonal goodies (e.g. fried "umbrella" mushrooms with potato salad). Relaxed restaurant for lunch with affordable lunch menu or for dinner a la carte. Most of the sitting is inside, in... More

The food was to die for, the friendliness of the staff was outstanding. Being 7000 km from home they make you feel like you are right at home. Great selection of wine and and even better home made brew of beer. Plenty of cool schnapps to try also. over all excellent experience have been back multiple times on our way... More

The restaurant was close to the place we stayed in Ljubljana, so we just went there for dinner. The atmosphere of the restaurant was nice and the waiter was also very friendly. We ordered the horse meat and a pasta (see the photos). The food was well prepared, but the horse meat was a bit too hard for me. The... More

Last sunday we have a fantastic dinner in this restaurant. We eat pasta with tartufi, some fish and pizza. Everything was very tasty and you can feel it that there is love in their food. I really recommended to stop there if you visit old center in Izola. B&B&T

Very slow service: hungry-very hungry-extremely hungry-not hungry any more-the food arrives. Not bad food taste.

This restaurant seems to be closed all the time - either for private parties or completely or we may have been just really unlucky. The food is modern Italian-Slovenian mix. Our Italian Friends were really happy with the pasta here. The menu changes depending on seasonal ingredients. The service is friendly but a bit casual.
