Reviewed October 16, 2023

We were a party of 7 on a cycling tour along the Istrian coast. Whilst the food was rather good, including plenty of fresh seafood, the service was not. The waitress was friendly enough but did not allow us to choose from the menu and...only gave us options that suited the restaurant, stating that there was only one cook and he could not be expected to make 7 individual orders. Two or our party did not like seafood but were given no other options based on the majority of others who did like it. She literally did not allow us to look at the menu. We all left feeling rather ambushed by the experience and the offer of cheap grappa and some other pretty unpleasant tasting local digestif, after saying that she could not offer us something we liked was not any sort of recompense. At the most charitable, the restaurant should not taken our booking based on the recommendation of an article in the New York Times if it was too late or was understaffed. However I do wonder what would have happened if we had staggered our arrival and been 7 individual clients. Not recommended, based on the total inflexibility of the staff. But, if you like seafood and happy to be dictated to on what you are allowed to order, not an unpleasant experience.More

My friends and I had a truly wonderful experience here. The food was superb, the prices reasonable, the service top notch. Make a reservation! Let them pick the menu! Don’t miss this place. It isn’t directly on the ocean but we sat on the lovely...patio and still had a bit of an ocean view, including an unforgettable sunset.More

I am surprised by the good reviews. Four of us ate here - 2 meals good - 2 meals bad - t”bad meals - my husband ordered gnocchi which was practically raw; I asked for a medium well steak and blood from steak was running...on plate - this was after waiting hour for food. We were asked how our food was so we were honest and treated to a torrent of abuse from the owners - one of whom had sat all night drinking with his pals while his overworked staff ran around. He had the nerve to say we refused to pay for our food which is absolutely not the case - we would have paid even though 50% of meals were awful. We had much better food and service from other places in Piran - if you want a nice restaurant go to PiratMore

Oh what can I say... despite the not so perfect location the food here is...for gods. The staff is so friendly and helpful and the food delicious. It is very small and crowded place as locsl people know where to go. Fish is fresh and...everything is delicious. I recomment to try tgeir tirsmisu. Definetely worth the prize you pay.More

We were a large group and the restaurant managed everything perfectly. Great Slovenian white wine we had with fish. Awesome location in city center of the beautiful city of Piran. I had pasta with fish which was amazing.

Small gostilna tucked away from the city center, right by the sea. Outside tables are shaded by woodbine terrace and inside is soaked with autentic family atmosphere and sweet smell od homemade food. Friendly staff will recomend you a glass of amazing local wine and...maybe you'll get a peak of owner lady preparing your delicious meal in the kitchen. They won't just fill your stomach, but your heart too. We almost cried eating. One of the top 10 restaurants in whole country of Slovenia.More

Absolutely delicious dinner. While this is mainly a seafood restaurant, the meat dishes were great too. Service was friendly without being intrusive, and we enjoyed a carafe of local wine with the meal. Desserts were scoffed very quickly - we particularly enjoyed the chocolate cake...which was wonderfully light and airy.More

This restaurant has fabulous fresh fish. There is a charm in the old world style of the restaurant as if it hasn’t changed in 50 years. The waiting staff spoke many languages and were really helpful in recommending types of fish /seafood. Our fish was...cooked to perfection. The lemon sorbet & tiramisu were also delicious.More

I think this ticked all the boxes for the perfect dinner. My family around me, amazingly friendly atmosphere, warm but not intrusive service. Mainly though of course the food. Generous portions of wonderfully fresh seafood and fish, simply cooked and served because really it doesn’t...need to be fancier than that. The quality speaks for itself. We had house white wine in litre jugs - very light and a brilliant accompaniment. I can’t remember a meal I have enjoyed more really!More

In six main dishes, we could not imagine anything that could be improved. Also, you can discuss preferences if you feel expert enough.

After reading some reviews we went here for dinner. We were not disappointed. The fish is of very good quality. We had the 'black' risotto (well filled with octopus) and the grilled calamari. All in all great taste. We were tucked away in a little...cosy corner (we were seated inside, outside they only have a few tables). And it was hard to get attention from the host (for a refill of their delicious white wine). Eventually I stood up and asked for it. Then she offered also some bread and the filled the glass of wine with a little extra. Great way to make it up! If that hadn't occurred (although it was well corrected) they would have received a full 5-stars. Great place for good fish, just a little outside the center. But that ain't bad at all!More
