We expect more of the restaurant for the price range they have. Menues have on paper, food is very average and small. Wine glasess, we got 2 different, i assume they were some promotional and staff people are bot so kind. I think in this...region are so much better restaurants.More

We came to the restaurant expecting a local food, but the restaurant is offering mostly only seafood. We ordered an octopus and some other stuf. Octopus was average and not really soft. The restaurant is full of Italian guests, who are comming there for seafood,...but it is a pitty that in Brda region known in past for excellent local food, nothing of these is available in this restaurant. Beside food restaurant has excelent view and very nice ambient.More

Restaurant offers excellent food and last year they opened new terrace with perfect panoramic view. they offered us to have dessert and coffee there and place is extremely nice. All was perfect until we used outside toilets (instruction by waiter), which have not been cleaned...for days. after that even dessert didnot left good impression. Hope they improve this until next visit.More

A family business. Everyone helps. The food is a poem of Mediterranean cuisine. The view from the terrace is beautiful and a multiplier for the pleasures on the palate. Well done.

Just go with one excuse... we can all understand we are too late, Friday, you are full... etc. Just stick to it. Empty table wont support the idea but ok. First no free table (everything free inside and the entrance tables where you don't serve...;) ) , then kitchen can't fit 2 extra meals. I don't think I will come and check whether it can manage anything else. It is just a simple way you can explain that you are full.More

We had a very good 4 course lunch with 3 different wines. The lunch which was extensive only cost 16 E. You need to say in advance if you don't eat meat. The fish one looked lovely. The meat one, especially the pasta dish was...lovely. The pork dish had 4 pieces, really too much !More

We went to Bužinel to have some wine tasting. Wine tasting (5 or 6 different wines) + meat (salami, cheese, olives and prosciutto) was 15€ per person. It was really nice, good wines, nice view and a good service. For lunch or dinner probabbly best...to make a reservation. Restaurant is know by a sea food, but they have also meat (stakes). We will come back for shure.More

Two of us had an excellent meal at Buzinel restaurant today. Restaurant is located in Slovenian region Primorska, part called Brda which is very famous for their wines. Border between Slovenia and Italy is a mile away (now in EU you can hardly novice it)....Several great wine makers are located in a few miles distance from this restaurant in Pleaivo itself and near by Medana. Family running Buzinel restaurant is also producer of great wines which they serve in their restaurant. We had couple of glasses of their cuve called Elvis which was great, very fresh wine. Restaurant is famous for their sea food. Cold starters was great and if this plates which are prepared from raw (not cooked) ingredients are great I have no fears for what will follow. I had a pasta with sea crabs and my wife pasta with labstor, both great. Salat from local garden (fresh in February) was tasty served with top quality local Olive oil. For desert we had a home made vanilla ice cream with chocolate topping and chocolate Suffle.For all that (great quality and great taste) with four glasses of very tasty local wine and bottle of water we paid 100€ which is very reasonable for quality of food. Location itself is great with great view from dining room. Nice location for a gourmet weekend with some similar great quality restaurants and wine producers in walking distance.More

Casual, local dining. Family owned, and very much family operated. Had one of the best dinners since arriving in Slovenia 10 days ago. Also stayed in guest room after finding no other accommodations....and we were pleased. Very clean and basic. Would stay again!

I mean, there's not much more to say. The location, the owners and of course the food, were all perfect. Will definitely eat here again.

The restaurant specializes in seafood, a welcome variant from the typical Slovenian meat dishes. My halibut dinner was very good. Very popular with both locals and visitors.

Great restaurant with delicious and fresh seafood dishes in the heart of Goriska Brda in Slovenia. Make sure to book your table in advance (the terrace has great views of the vineyards). They have fresh seafood platters and different fish every day.
