We didn't want to order from manu, so on proposal for appetizer we took grilled vongole and shrimp soup. Vongole were very... read 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

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.
