“wonderful experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

the restaurant is not easy to find, also using a gps, but when arrived the difficulties are payed back with an incredible eating experience. all the dishes are a perfect mix of seasonal fishes and vegetables (from mushrooms to fruits), with fantastic results for your tongue! the presentation made by Darko is always perfectly detailed and often you are in troble to choose between those fantastic proposals. the dishes are always good looking and special to eat. one wrong thing? sometimes the music selection is not as it should, but who cares? ;)

“First find it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

This restaurant has excellent reviews here, which we do not want to doubt. We went there because of that, and it was closed - looked totally abandoned, actually.
As much as the Slowenian websites we did find about it told us, the closed days are Sunday + Monday.

We went on a Tuesday. We tried hard but could not find their proper website.

It is a significant distance out of town (and uphill!), so if we had walked it would have been a bitter experience.

Also, several locals we asked about it never heard about it, and dependent where you enter the address, you may get different locations displayed. It's not downtown.

“Best Fish Soup ever”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2012

This is a friendly lovely restaurant in a charming little village. The waitress was very solicitous. The wines were excellent and reasonable. The fish soup was worth a journey! It was the coldest weather but we were warmed inside and out.

“best place in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

Excellent presentation of seafood and locally sourced vegetable based dishes. Unmissable olive soup served in savouri mini-panettone (when available).
Very good service too.

“The best dinner in my life!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2011

we went to Koper for Elton john concert but it suddenly canceled, we were so upset and decided go to a restaurant for dinner,we search in TripAdvisor and find this restaurant. it was a chance for us to find Rodica. It was perfect. this restaurant doesn't have fix menu and the chef explained for us with patient in detail. The food was ex trimly delicious, we started with sparkling wine, then toast with special olive which is complimentary and a bread basket in hedgehog shape, then he brought for us 4 courses which was very tasty. the price is very good compere to quality,book in advance, if you have time for at least 3 hours and want to have a special meal don't miss this restaurant enjoy!
