On the outside this is a shady place on the old road Trieste - Monfalcone (btw, you have to watch out for you children, if you are traveling with them, as this busy road is right beside the restaurant). Once passed the entrance there is a beautiful view of the Gulf of Trieste and the people are very nice and... More

Simple location close to road. On our bill were things we did not eat, but certainly not in fraudulent intention.

The fish is good, and so is the wine; service and prices are in line. The real reason you go to the Tenda Rossa (the red tent, which is what it probably was when they started after the war) is the view on the sea and the opportunity to sit on the terrace. The restaurant is located along the main... More

Stopped there on our way out of Trieste after visiting Castello di Miramare. Ate on the terrace with fantastic view of the gulf. Children ate pasta (10 euros for a small plate). I had pasta too, which was ok. Wife had the seabass which was she said one of the best fish plate she ever had (price tag of 24... More

This was one of the best restaurants we ate at travelling around Europe and the view was amazing. If you are heading to the castle make sure you stop in for some lunch.

We arrived at around 3 o clock (am) for lunch, which I know is pretty late in Italy... The waitress told us, that is was too late, they can serve us only lasagna or fish. We asked about pasta, she said the water is already turned off. ??? We sat down and she started to tell us what we can... More

The patio would have been nice if the weather had allowed it. On our way to see Castle Miramare and this was one of few places open. All-in-all the food was good, not memorable, but prices were a little high, I'd guess tourists were their main focus. We left wishing we had looked a little harder. The staff was quite... More

This is a very nice restaurant that sits in front of the sea on one side, and the road on the other. The menu is all worth trying if you love seafood. During the summer the terrace is the ideal location. Great place for a romantic dinner or business lunch. Prices adequate for the overall quality.

Thank EdoardoJames
