Shrimps here are always between very good and great and the sauce is really good. Everything else is just very solid.

Great fish dish experience. The fish soup is excellent and scampi with tagliatelle are to die for. The apple crostata is delicious so is the chocolate soufflé. You don't wanna miss it if you are near.

They have good fish soup, a couple of good bottles of wine, but if I compare this restaurant to my international experience, still nothing special. Still one of top 4 restaurants in Izola.
