Reviewed 30 July 2017

I went to the restaurant for dinner last night and enjoyed the food and atmosphere very much. It was quirky because you ordered drinks and paid the waiter and then ordered seafood at a self serve window and paid the server when you picked up your food . We enjoyed this aspect of the experience.
The calamari was tender and beautifully cooked. The elderflower drinks were refreshing and lightly sweetened. Bread was served along side the meal as well.
We also appreciated being served water when we asked . It was a scorching hot evening and we needed water after eating our dinner and drinking our beverages. We've had a few experiences in Slovenia when waiters have have refused to serve tap water even though we have ordered a meal. The service was quick and polite. I would recommend this restaurant.

Lots of choice on the menu and each option was executed expertly. The fish tortilla and stuffed squid were the best surprises but the muscles with cheeses and garlic, and fried squad were super tasty too. There are 2 places next to each other. For one you order the food, the other the drinks. You end up with separate bills but it actually works quite well. The food was awesome but the wait was quite long.

You have to order your food at the counter in a house. The drinks are served by another restaurant. The food is good to nice, but together with the location is this a marvellous evening. Nice place to eat with children.

We tried this little place for lunch today and were not disappointed.
Very comfortable, padded seats, dressed tables and friendly but not obtrusive waiting staff. Not too busy at 1.00 p.m.
My heart often sinks when a group of adults with small children sit nearby .. Because you just know that inevitebly your tranquil meal will be disturbed.. Children not used to sitting at table, needing entertainment, up and down , running around, not used to eating adult food and loudness with no parent control.
No worries here today, they were impeccable. Slovenian children at their best, well drilled. Wonderful manners - really adds value to your meal experience!
The food was lovely, OH had fresh tasty tomato soup and seafood pasta brimming with shellfish and sea flavour. I went for languistines in a garlic and wine sauce with fries and a salad on the side. Washed down with a local table white wine.
It was very nice. We drank 500 litres of wine had a further cold beer and lemonade. Our bill 45 € which I consider fairly reasonable for food of this quality in a good unfussy little restaurant. Would have had ice cream dessert but the waitress could only offer pancakes.. Bad planning that.
Would come back here, not quite Pavel but not Pavel prices I suspect

It is not located by the sea, but really worth trying this out! We did go here without looking at any recommendations, but after starting to eat we understood this was a hit. Actually on the very top of the list ! In the heart of Piran!
