A different world: The best seafood that money can buy

First of all, the atmosphere and location is hard to beat. The restaurant is all made of log wood and they have a pond outside with koi fish. Just to sit outside and have a glass of wine with the frogs ribbiting in the background makes for a fantastic dinner. They have a variety of seafood dishes... read more

Second visit to Pikol. I was there two years ago when I last visited Slovenia. Great service, food and wine! Pick up a few bottles when you go! Tadaj's friendly personality is welcoming and service is excellent. I will visit again! Thanks Tadaj!

Fabulous restaurant with the gorgeous interior and most important - extra delicious food. We had a 6 courses meal, everything was prepared and arranged perfectly. Definitely a restaurant to celebrate special occasions with your loved ones.

Very nice venue, in a small, purpose built house in the forrest next to Goriza and next to a small lake, with hundreds of frogs and oversized carps fighting for bread you can throw in. Family run place, with few great dishes ( everything with bottarga, truffles or seasonal asparagus is just great) and few others more mainstream and that... More

I visited the place for the first time ten years ago with business partners and had an exquisite prolongued lunch based on sea food, the owner also found perfect wine matches from both sides of the Slovene-Italian border. However, the bill was truly prohibitive for Slovenian standards, the reason why I then avoided the place. However, other family members insisted... More

I've been to Pikol a couple of times in the last 3 years and each and every time I've got completely satisfied. Seafood is at top level ever tasted (do not forget to order the seabass carpaccio, prepared by the owner in front of you). Row fish is always fresh and tasteful, most of the times special dishes are available,... More

It was simply perfect. The location is deep in the nature and you're feeling good thanks to the bucolic surround. The preparation of the dishes is done directly to the table. My suggestions, if available (some are seasonal), are the following: Carloforte's tuna with black truffle, marinated sea ​​bass with honey, strawberries and arugula, scallops on anans covered with melted...
