For a couple of years now Sonja's is run by her son, always warmly smiling professional who knows the (fish)food business well. The ingredients at Sonja's are always fresh, food delicious, tastes heavenly. Would recommend bakala (baccalà (codfish in Istrian regional cuisine, prepared as a spreadable paste made from dried codfish mixed with extra virgin olive oil and garlic), fishsoup... More

Had a fantastic experience and service was superb! The fish soup was excellent and the truffle fusilli was otherworldly. A must if visiting the Slovenian coast!!

Sonja is a traditional Slovenian restaurant. In the summer time you can enjoy you meal under a Visterian perloga. The served food is the best you can find in Izola.

1) you should start with a fish soup. Clear, tasteful, really good. 2) then continue with some pasta (fusili) with truffles (beautiful taste) 3) ...and finish with fresh fish, maybe grilled rombo. ... not a high cousin, but fresh istrian food, as it should be. Maybe I missed a better wine list...

The only thing you need to know is that until you've had Sonja's fish soup you haven't had fish soup. Also, they prepare perfect crayfish. A great place run by a nice family. I've been going for 20 years and have never been disappointed.

Prices: for 2 people if... More

We always go to Sonja's for birthdays, graduations or something like that, it has the best pasta with shrimps I've ever tried, it is great. Of course you have to be ready to spend a bit but for the price you get tons of shrimps with the marvellous pasta, it is really worth the price. Good also the cuttlefish salad,... More

I have heard a lot of good for this restaurant but I have always forgot to visit it. After having a wild fish (seabus) there with bacalar and have seen everybody eating great scampi (schrimps) there, licking their fingers, I have to addmit, they know how to make a lounch or a dinner fabulous. Mnjam :)
