“One of the most famous restaurants in Piran”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Nicely decorated restaurant by the sea. The food is tasty, freshly prepared. I was most impressed with service. The waiter was a nice older gentleman, original "Primorec". We were served quickly. Since we were with a friend at dinner just at sunset, it was especially enjoyable. We ate octopus and shells on buzara style. Both were excellently prepared and delicious Toilet rooms are decorated and clean.

“Average meal with a great sunset”
Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

Tri Vdove occupies a prime seashore location in Piran. As it's one among many touristy restaurants, we had some doubts on food quality despite of the positive reviews here. Those doubts were justified. We started with scallops (uninspiring) and calamari fritti (ok). Then grilled sardines (not good), grilled scampi (huge, but mostly shell and almost no meat) and stuffed grilled octopus (ok).

On a more positive note, the service was good. The atmosphere is very nice and we had a beautiful sunset. And since we avoided fish charged by weight (which usually is quite pricey), the bill was still reasonable. So we left the place not unhappy.

All in all a reasonable dining option in Piran, where it will be hard to find excellent food in the touristy places. Sometimes you just can't have it all.

“Best meal in Piran”
Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

We went into Tri vidov because the atmosphere adter dark was great. We noticed people eat later in Slovenia. This ended up being our favorite meal while we were in Slovenia. We ordered a Greek salad, shrimp risotto, calamari and the house white wine for about 40 euros. It was all delicious. The waiter was kind and spoke English well enough. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a nice dinner out.

“Nice seafront restaurant”
Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

But the worst steak tartar ever. Probably the only fish which you shouldn't order there. Service is very attentive.

“Elegant restaurant by the sea”
Reviewed July 5, 2012 via mobile

The restaurant is located on the sea side, with a great sea view. The food was good, the waiters were kind, but the price was higher than other restaurants in Piran.
The restaurant has no Wi-Fi.
