Ivo was recommended to me by my friend who is Slovenian. We were not disappointed! The restaurant was packed and we had, as advised by my friend, made a reservation. We decided at the last minute to go for a sunset swim outside of Hotel Piran so we were late. They still managed to sort a table for us 15... More

The location of this restaurant alone would make me want to return to it. It's situated right by the water overlooking the rocks and sea so if you go at the right time you can catch the beautiful sunset. If that wasn't enough the food was absolutely delicious. So incredibly fresh and prepared perfectly. My group had the sea bass... More

Located right on the beach of the beautiful city Piran, yet not on sand. Has nice staff, although not all know english well. Has good prices compared to the area, 7 euro for a big pasta plate. Very good food. Does not have airconditioning like most of Slovenia.

If you're looking for nice food and an excellent view at the sea, this is the place! Don't expect 5 star quality plates with carved carrots, but just simple and great home made food. The fish is fresh and waiters are nice, but a bit too much in a hurry because it was really crowded. Nevertheless a good option for... More

In this restaurant the food is excellent and the view even better. We ate fresh fish, which was royally served and tasted great. The waiter was less OK Maybe because he didn't spoke English very well, or maybe he just had a bad day, but he was not friendly at all. So go their for the food, the view and... More

I dont know of we were just lucky but we had very good food and service here twice. I can especially recommend mixed mussels. It is nice how they open up the roof when sun goes down.

I didnt enjoy the meal i had there. I went twice to give them another opportunity, but i didny change my mind!!! The first time i ordered grilled srimps and calamares with spinaches. The second i had spinach with grilled fish. The 2 times, the plates were greasy and the service really slow( 40 minutes for a monday at 20,30!)

Great location with a nice sea view, excellent food and service! I come here very often when I am in Piran, food is always fresh, prices are better than in other close by restaurants. Sea food is great, ask them about daily catch - this fish was still swimming less than 12 hours ago ;)

Had dinner here on my wife's birthday. Blue muscles and scallops were fantastic. Shared fish platter with potatoes and spinach - which was excellent. Service was OK (very busy) but the food was beyond criticism. Local red wine was also fantastic! Not to be miss if you are a seafood fan.

Thank Roadstechno
