Very nice food by the sea.

We stopped here for a light lunch on a sunny day. Grilled calamari and fresh scampi were both very nice. Side salad basic but tasty. House white wine v acceptable.

This restaurant has great views of the Adriatic and the evening sunsets are beautiful! Recommend sitting close to seaside for the best views. The food is good although not memorable and a bit pricey. The grilled calamari was an excellent dish though! And they had a nice selection of good Slovenian wines. The service was friendly and attentive. The best... More

I would say it is a solidly good place, good service (though our waiter tended to be just a little bit more intrusive than we would like him to be), good starter (grilled sardines), good wine (Malvasia), good main courses, good all over. Not exceptional though, not that I am going to visit them again (there are better places in... More

Ate here on a Friday night, we chose it because place looked very upmarket but staff were unfriendly, slow and very off putting. Food just average, would not return and would not recommend this place.

We were just walking along the seaboard and it was already busy. So we thought lets give it a try. It was really good food. Very nice soup and fish.

We walked up and down the front and settled on this restaurant with the wonderful smells coming from it with all the sea food. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The grilled salmon was excellent but the service deteriorated as it got busier and a large group turned up - not what you would expect im afraid.

We stopped in while wandering the waterfront having worked up an appetite diving on the reef. When at the sea, we always prefer to have seafood for our meals. The staff is friendly, multi lingual and helpful. We had a glass each of the house Malvazja and cold natural water. They didn't mind the water bottles we carried in just... More

We had lunch in Pavel. Good grilled calamari and mussels (long ones). Good quick service. Clean place, fantastic view. Restaurant with long tradition. Everything was tasty and fresh.

Pleasant evening with Family at Pavel. Locals are coming so VG good sign... The food was very good but the price is quite high for Slovenian standards. We had to wait more than an hour to get our dish (how far was it a mistake ? not sure). Bio local wine was very good.

Thank Duduche22
