We visited this restaurant on the way to beautiful vine region "Goriška Brda" for lunch...7 people... 7 different courses... Five star presentation of the food and unusual combination which brings me simle on the end of every finished plate... Just relax and enjoy! Highly recommended!!!

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in. The setting itself provided the perfect intro, being welcomed by the sound of a fountain in a pond full of water-lilies, carp and frogs, and the food and service were even better. The flavours in the food were simply exquisite and it was clear that a great deal... More

This restaurant is a gem. The location is beautiful - set in the woods, by the side of a huge lily pond which is lit up at night. The food was fantastic, innovative and beautifully presented. The staff were wonderful, very friendly, informative and professional, yet without being overly attentive. What more can I say ... it was great!

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 and you can't... 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
