Worth trying - great seafood

This restaurant is full even for a weekday evening. All seafood here is nicely done with a magnificent taste. The owner is a very friendly lady who makes you feel at home. I feel privileged for being able to spend my birthday dinner there.❤️

Yesterday, we had lunch at the TA #1 rated restaurant in Piran. Today, we had lunch at Pri Mari and I think it should be #1 instead of #4. The food was amazing. Fresh, homemade, and delicious! If you want a restaurant with a view, then this is not the place, although the location is across the road from the... More

Small, family run restaurant with a well earned reputation. We had grilled scallops, seafood soup, calamari & grilled tuna and it was all delicious. Wine was not as appealing but service was friendly.

We did not have reservations and were so glad to be able to get in at all. The service is great. We ordered several seafood dishes and they were all fresh and perfectly done. The ambiance of the restaurant is nice too and it's right across the Marina. When we ordered our dessert, they brought out with a smiley face... More

A little off the main square on road out of town this small family run restaurant has superb freshly cooked food especially fish & watching it being filleted & prepared is an art in itself. Only in Piran 3 nights & ate here twice

Had 2 portions of scallops and sole, a liter of wine and fantastic home made bread. All for just 53€. Great people, good service and great value for money. Just wish they would put more comfortable chairs in their garden as you can't lean anywhere when seating on those benches... Im sure inside the seating is ok but outside it... More

Piran has some very good restaurants but this was our favourite and after a superb meal on the first evening we returned the following night as well. It's popular so it's worth making a reservation and accepting that this is not a place where they rush the food. we waited about 20 minutes for our starters, but it was so... More

This came as a recommendation as the place the locals ate. The food has a strong Italian influence and was the best we ate in Piran.

Enjoyed the best seafood we had in Piran here. The wine was also very nice and very inexpensive. The food was also good value. The staff were very friendly but service was quite slow. They have some seating outdoors but as the restaurant is directly on the road this has to be in an alley next to the building.
