Great seafood dishes. The seafood pasta dish with octopus was truly great. Great wine and mixed drinks. Terrace was very nice, view of pool and ocean. Service staff was nice. A bit pricy for the area, but worth it.

We celebrated our anniversary there in September. The restaurant is stunning, very beautiful decor. We opted for the Menu degustation at 44,50 euros. The food was good and very well presented but we didn't find that our meal lived up to the price. The fish was very fresh but the portions were tiny. The service was friendly and efficient.

a very nice restaurant where we were lucky enough that a Slovenian female cook came in that week..each dish was a delicacy..the girl who served us was very friendly and knew her job.. the restaurant is located at the hotel Kempinski and has the advantage that a very cosy bar next to the restaurant. There is a lot of space... More

We chose to eat in the fine dining restaurant of the Kempinski Palace Hotel on our overnight stop there. It was very good with good service but some of the food lacked the wow factor you might hope for (although the spaghetti with lobster was outstanding. You can eat on the lawn or in the opulent dining room or indeed... More

We pre-booked our table at Sophia and were thrilled to find that we had a table on the lawn which was just lovely. Starting off in Bubbless with a glass of Pol Roger, we then moved on to a Slovenian wine for dinner. It was decanted and very nice. At this point, with my eyeliner and decolletage with heaving bosom,... More

We are staying in the kempinski so we dined here last night. The salt baked sea bass for two was outstanding. The fish was delicious and the presentation was fantastic. The restaurant is beautiful and we enjoyed the atmosphere . The appetizers were good, but mine was a bit silly in terms of price . A ravioli appetizer at 15... More

As a frequent visitor in Portorož, both Kempinski and Sophia have been high on my priority list. This time I finally decided to drop by for dinner while I was staying at the hotel. The restaurant is located in the classic part of the hotel, in a spacious room with high ceilings and columns. The whole atmosphere is fairly extravagant... More

This is one of the two restaurants of Kempinski Palace. The environment is elegant and luxurious while the service is flawless - what else would you expect. I loved their gourmet-style menu card. There wasn't a huge variety of average food on it but only a few dishes organzied into a 4-course array. The waiter helped and suggested in a... More

We had a very good dinner here. We were a bit early so there were very few guests, but the dining room have an 'ambiente' that makes you feel quite intimate and not lost in a big hall. We chose to eat inside because of the heat, it was 35 degrees outside. We were greeted by the staff who made... More
