We stayed in Piran last week and chose this restaurant for a couple of meals on both occasions we felt welcome and enjoyed good food that was well cooked and served. Our first meal was sea bream that was recommended by the waiter. Very good with a selection of veg and heir house White. Good... read more

Picked this restaurant based on other reviews. Expected good service and food. However, the food was appalling. Scampi risotto was overcooked and had parts of mussels in it. The fish we had for main dish was supposed to be wild and fresh, but the meat was stringy and the fish tasted like one coming from a fish farm. The only... More

We had calamari several times while we stayed in Piran. Ivo had the best. If you go ordering the grilled calamari is a must.

Make a reservation, there is plenty of people always waiting for a table to free up. Needless to say the food is really really good. The fish is fresh and the cook seems to know his business. We had a mixed plate with salads, which we managed to eat (just barely). The quality is excellent in particular considering that the... More

This establishment is situated on the main seafront promenade. It has a covered terrace that provides a good view of the sea. My Bradt Travel Guide (Istria, 1st edition) states that “Ivo distinguishes itself from the rest of the seafront restaurants by its simple & consistently good dishes.” What it meant immediately became apparent. For starters, I had rižota z... More

Recommended by our apartment owner and it was delicious We had fresh fish platter for 2 (only €35) with a local white wine recommended by the waitress and it was absolutely gorgeous. Paired perfectly. Just what you want from a seafront restaurant. Both had nice desserts then a complimentary grappa (not for the faint of heart) to aid the digestion.... More

This restaurant was recommended by our host and she said it was a must try. After a bit of hesitation looking at all the other restaurants on the sea front we decided to take out chances. We ordered the blue mussels to share, my husband had the Grilled prawns and calamari, while I had the stuffed calamari. With 1l of... More

Need I say more? As usual with any small town there are many similar restaurants on the waterfront and it's a gamble on which is good. A Slovenian friend recommended Ivo and we were not disappointed. Great location, our table was 10ft from the waves and the sunset was miraculous from our vantage point. Friendly and attentive waitress despite the... More
