Lovely fresh seafood by the sea

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... read 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.

Personally, I think this place is a bit overrated on here. The service was very good though. Friendly and joking waiters all over the place. Food was mediocre, house wine was horrible red vinegar, YUCK.

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel but we were a bit hesitant to visit as it does not have good reviews on Tripadvisor. We found the restaurant too be so good that we visited the restaurant a second time. We had a front table with a view over the sea that we could watch the sunset from. Great selection... More

This restaurant has the perfect location, pretty much on the edge of the water and is very nicely done. The menu has a great deal of choice, but in the end we chose the fish platters that are shared between two people. These were incredibly generous - they brought out one platter which we presumed was for all four of... More

The fish / sea food platter was exquisite and the local white wine light and fruity. We had a carafe for an unbelievable 5 euros! Very lively atmosphere, good for both a romantic outing or for families / groups. The staff are obvious seasoned pros. A rincing option would have been welcome though after handling seafood. The icing on the... More

Piran has a good reputation but we struggled to see why. This was our fifth meal of the holiday and by far the worst. Food was ok but revive was poor and felt rushed. Had to ask for a napkin and then remind the waiter about the wine. No questions about hoe the meal was going. The next time we... More
