We found our dinner and the service to be absolutely perfect, from the fresh greens in the salad, the delicious olive oil, to the perfectly prepared fish. As for the placemats, I'm responding to the reviewer who complained about the "child's placemats." I noticed them and thought they were charming. So there you go. Even on this we disagree.

As this place was highly recommended by Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor, our group of three friends had pretty high expectations, which certainly weren't met. We just didn't understand the reasons for the high reviews. Service was below average since the lady did not know what to recommend to us, and told us first that the fish we wanted was... More

Always when we visit Piran, we stop for lunch at Mara restaurant. Nice family restaurant where food will not disappoint you, but wine list is a little thin.

Nice family feel restaurant, but a somewhat awkward mix of seafood restaurant flare with child's placemats. Great food though, no doubt. Service was responsive but not too friendly. We went here with the highest expectations based on other TA reviews but it ended in our second place experience. Good pricing.

We rely liked this place-it has a cosy atmosphere of a family restaurant and good quality of seafood. All fish was fresh and nicy spiced, the staff very accommodating and attentive. Until now-our favorite place in Piran. Deffintely recommend!

I think Piran may have served me the best fish I have ever eaten - a lovely, grilled sea bream, crispy on the outside, soft and moist on the inside and bursting with flavor and freshness. The pasta con vongole that preceded it was excellent, as was the apple tart that succeeded it. It was an outstanding meal. The service... More

Family-run, nicely furnished place where food is fresh and prepared with care. Fresh fish and sea food are delicious as well as every other dish I tried. Good selection of domestic vines. Very advisable to make a reservation ahead especially at weekends.
