For our first night in Piran we took the recommendation of several locals to eat at Ivo - and were not disappointed ! It is situated on the waterfront, a short promenade from the delightful Tartini square with its prominent statue of the famous violinist. The welcome was warm, menu and surroundings simple and nicely done and the catch of... More

Totally delicious, fresh and nice served sea food! We tried different types of sea food dishes from fish soup to Sykas fish main course and everything was amazing. Staff was kind and friendly, making us feel like we are at home. Atmosphere was cozy and simple. Together with the astonishing sunset view from the restaurant, my experience during late afternoon...

We have visited Ivo Restaurant for several times. We enjoy great location by the sea. Last time we ordered some octopus salad, black risotto and fish made in owen, which is surelly the best on slovenian coast. Service is quick and friendly. Prices very-reasonable, very good value for money. When you visit Piran, dont miss Restaurant Ivo.

Ivo is one of my favorite restaurant on Slovenian coast, located in beautiful city Piran. They offer fresh fish and seafood. My favorite is gratinated scallops and fresh fish baked in oven with potatoes and vegetables. If you travel thru Slovenia and stop on the coast you should definetly visit Ivo's restaurant.

Like many places on Slovenia, service is slow and bored. That said, food is really tasty and the location is great by the sea! Recommended for sure
