Business trip and I didn't see any prices but I guess it was expensive. Tasting menu - each course was delicious and beautiful, but also tiny! Not a lot of meat, given the location it's understandable that seafood features highly. Paired Slovenian wines were lovely...(no red though). Great service. Good selection of digestifs.More

Visiting for the first time Pirano with my wife and we got amazed by Vecchia osteria Pirano! A great location sorrounded by the old museal buildings creating a great opportunity to enjoy the colorful food. We were lucky to taste the new autumn menu, the...fish one we tried, wonderful.

We enjoy treating ourselves to a special meal and experience during our travels. Had researched many Michelin restaurants in the coarse of our travel stops and settled on Stara Gostilina in Piran being our last stop on our three week vacation. We were not disappointed...in the least! Amazing evening spent enjoying the many wonderful tasty creative courses of their seafood tasting menu while engaging with the wonderful team to whom made it all possible! Super people who truly enjoy what they do! Every bit as good as some of the Michelin star restaurants that we have visited. Extremely talented Chef!More

It was our first time ever to visit Piran which surely offers more than we could explore in one afternoon. Looking through Michelin guide app we have chosen Stara Gostilna and it was absolutely worth it!! The food we had opportunity to taste definitely deserves...more than michelin recommendation! Big Bravo to young Chef Kristian and his team who amazed us with their super tasty and crative dishes. Another Bravo goes to Mr Zoran - our waiter for that evening, who's warm personality is just fantastic. Mr Zoran's attitude shows how much he loves and cares about his job. I do want to recognise his younger helper who was also great but unfortunately do not know his name. We will definitely visit again as we just started exploring Stara Gostilna Menu. One more time big bravo to the whole team and looking forward to see you all again!More

Beefsteak - made from local Piran beef, and absolutely definitively the best steak ever! Simply the meat is just beyond words. Must visit if ever in these parts. Sea bass - not the greatest. Pretty bland and can be avoided. There’s a fish fillet that...looked much better on other tables, that comes in a case of salt. Tiramisu dessert - the dessert is plated in front of you. And it’s simply incredible how a layered dessert like Tiramisu can be created right on the spot, but it’s perfect and it’s delicious. Some starters are also served, in typical Michelin style, and they’re totally worth it too.More

I have never given a review on Trip advisor, but this time I need to share a delightful experience. Stara gostilna was a perfect place for dinner in relaxed atmosphere.

Hello To start from the beginning, my name is Otto, I also own a Michelin restaurant Hearlin (1 michelin star), in Hmburg.Yes my wife and I were at your restaurant,and yes this is my first review, since I don't like to comment on colleagues.But if I go into a restaurant and on the waiter's recommendation I take a 4 course menu, and the waiter explains to me along the way that you only use home-made things and local ingredient( It all sounds great and that’s how it should look in a Michelin restaurant).Then during dinner I get, scallops (frozen, Atlantic,) Then Salmon, from Norway ( 3 class) Then I have every right to think you have deceived me.......unless you want to convince me that salmon has appeared in the Adriatic Sea .and that scallops have become much larger in the Adriatic this year, as well as changing their taste, from sweet to no taste .If you think that beetroot puree, and fried salmon, Michelin dish ........ then you have to judge for yourself.As far as the image is concerned, as you know this is a randomly selected image from the tripadvisor....Thank you for responding to my review,but first fix the situation in your restaurant and then criticize the people who give their opinion, especially if those people know what they are talking about..
