Upon the recommendation of our host in Portoroz, we without hesitation sought out this restaurant for our last meal in town, and were not disappointed! We were immediately seated by our attentive waiter, who was fluent in English (and probably half a dozen other tongues) and who helpfully answered all our questions. We enjoyed fresh-baked bread (with chopped olives) and olive oil while considering the menu. We shared an excellent pate di pesce (fish pate) and zuppa di pesce for starters, followed by a shared salad, and for entrees, sardoni (called anchovy on the menu, but actually sardines, served grilled) for myself, and baked morska plošča (halibut) for Cheryl, with grilled polenta and blitva (translated as chard on the menu, but more like spinach, really) on the side. Our fish were fresh caught that day in the Adriatic, and tasted it! A half-litre of excellent Slovenian vina accompanied our meals. Our food was delicious in every respect, and our waiters were of the delightful European style of professional table service, and very friendly. One waiter devoted several minutes coaching Cheryl in how to delicately and efficiently remove the filet from her halibut, with great success. We had no dessert, alas, but we were treated gratis to apres-dinner glasses of a strong green aperetiv. We'll definitely return to Fritolin on our next visit to Portoroz, and recommend the restaurant to others.
