“Great Seafood and a Local Feel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

Fritolin pri Cantini is a local restaurant located on a small square in the heart of Piran. It is self-service style - you go to the window and place your order, then take a seat at one of the tables outside (or inside). Someone from the bar next door will probably swing by and see if you want a drink. At the end you pay separately for the food and the drinks. The food is all fresh and made to order. The squids are simply fantastic and we went back multiple times! If you are looking for something casual and delicious you can't do much better in Piran!

“One of the most local restaurant in Piran”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Delicious sea food with low prices...it is based on self service and that itself is an experience...friendly staff and very easygoing place...it is under the natural shadow and in the middle of historical square of the 1st May...it is connected with Cantina, local bar with home made wine...recommended!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

Local and beautiful self service restaurant. Everything is simple but yet very lovely and unique. It's the kind of place that really represents Piran as it is, and the people here don't know what is a face without a smile. If you really want to feel the atmosphere of Piran you should visit Fritolin pri Cantini and if you have the time, try every single dish on the menu, I strongly recommend!

“Cheap and cheerfull local food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

This is a family run restaurant in the middle of Piran. Uncomplicated and quaint, the drinks are brought to the table and the food comes as self service from the building next door. The menu choices are limited but include the all important grilled or fried squid, various salads and a few other typical local dishes. But there was one dish that stands out, and have not come across anywhere else in Slowenia: Fish Tortilla! To die for, you must try this simple but fresh and tasty wrap. We ordered another one,it was just too good. The house white wine was drinkable but stay away from the red.
