This is a very popular place which means that it is OK!
And...situated in the heart of the Old Town.
An excellent pizza, fine pasta dishes they serve and there is a wide choice of fish- and meat dishes.
Add to these positive things friendly staff and a fine ambiance then it is clear where to go to re-fuel!
Favorite Dish: I prefer fish dishes.....
SEE PREVIOUS TIP and....in front ot the place is a huge statue and this photo shows you the foot of the statue!
Shiny toes....of course, never forget to touch them.....it will bring you GOOD LUCK!
Favorite Dish: SEE PREVIOUS TIP
This restaurant is really small. In fact it has only a dining room that can accomodate around thirty customers. This place is cosy and the personnel was very kind.
Restaurant Neptun serves meat, fish and seafood dishes.
Favorite Dish: I went there three times. Their fried seafood with french fries was very good and well prepared. Even the rice with seafood was very good.
We arrived very late at Restaurant Neptun as it was already past 3PM but, fortunately, they were still serving dinner.
Open 12PM - 4PM and 6PM – midnight
Favorite Dish: We had an excellent seafood dinner for two:
Ribja salata (seafood salad): 8 €
Dondoli (grilled warty venus shells): 14€
Njoki scampi (gnocchi with scampi): 10€
Fritura (half a dozen small fried fish): 12€
Vino belo (white wine): 9€
In Piran, walk along the shore that leads to Punta Madonna to find a long stream of restaurants overlooking the sea, routinely crowded by hearty eaters. Avoiding the first touristy and more expensive spots, head for the ones in the nearby May 1 Square, less showy but cheaper and serving the same quality cuisine. A steaming bowl of fish soup teeming with mussels, langoustines and octopus costs €3.
Service is excellent all over and restaurants remain open all day in the summer to give you the chance to sit and eat non-stop from noon to about half past ten in the evening.
Favorite Dish: Come ready to find a simple cuisine, drizzled with olive oil to preserve the inebriating flavors. Fried shrimp and calamari appear on every table. Don't forget to try the mussels "alla busara", fish soup and seafood risotto accompanied by the legendary white Malvasia, refreshing in the summer. Piran has a microclimate that can yield 285 days of sunshine a year, granting local vineyards the occasional treat of two harvests annually. The local wine is organic and small-batch, and incredibly cheap.
If you don't like fish, the Slovenian cuisine provides the famous cevapcici or savory meats flavored with spicy pepper-based sauce. Local feature apart from the games, the sauerkraut served with fistful dumplings enriched with sausage and rib-roast.
The worthy end of a Piranese lunch is the classic palacinca and the local grappa.
You can eat some tablets of cheese and proscciuto (cured ham) accompanied with some white wine or a beer.
Otherwise, you can do as we did and take a coffee on the morning and beers on the evening.
Favorite Dish: Beer
This was a pleasant cafe at which we dinner when we were in Piran. It is on the waterfront and featured outdoor tables and tables under an awning. The menu had a good variety of meat and seafood dishes. We had prawns, which were very good. The service was excellent, and the restaurant was family friendly.
Along the bathing area are loads of seafront restaurants and because Piran is a very popular place and because they all line the seafront, these places are not cheap. I came to this one as I think it was a cheaper option and had lunch but I can’t now remember what I ate! Obviously the menu is heavy on seafood such as Dorade, Bass, Sole (all for 8,000SIT), Lobster (14,000SIT!), Scampi (3,300SIT) and Squid (1,500SIT). They also do meat dishes such as escallops, rump steaks and mixed grills.
Can there be a more perfect place to eat lunch ? we sat at a table gazing out over the incredibly blue Adriatic, the sun was hot and a light breeze was blowing, this was to be our last meal in Slovenia, at the end of a wonderful trip
and what a fabulous meal it was.....Scampi with mushrooms and tagliatelli, we wanted it to last forever, we knew that as soon as we had finished eating it would be time to go to the airport and fly home
as we ate we realised we didnt really want to go home
Very good location, beautiful view to the sea.
The food is delicious, prepared from fresh food and other sea animals.
Very good wine Refošk.
The best grilled shrimps, shrimpas á la Buzara, battered shrimps.
walked down the main street of restaurants on the shoreline and stopped at this one called IVO, i guess...it was constantly busy, but staff was good and friendly, even if the overhead lights were a bit to flourscent for my tastes...
Favorite Dish: seafood. all good...can you go wrong with seafood when you live by the ocean??? and the local wine was also really nice.
we had a party at this restaurant, and they were absolutely amazing. well over and beyond being hospitable. they made amazing food - from this black sauce stuff made from the ink of squid/octopus(can't remember which one) and muscles, salads, local wines, desserts, etc etc.
Favorite Dish: the sea food!!!
There are more than dozen restaurants in a row on the costal part of the town quarter Punta.
Favorite Dish: I didn't stop here for lunch but, in my experience, the food in Slovenian restorants is always of a very good quality.
I suggest you seafood because there are a number of fishermen in the town of Piran and this kind of food must be very fresh.
East of the Punta lighhouse, 2 places serve pizzas.
They are Punta & Flora.
There are also a few pubs in this area.
Piran has many seafood restaurants; check along the road : Presernovo nabrezje.
There's also an outdoor market in the small square behind the town hall.
Jestvina Supermarket is opposite Trg Bratsva 8. Opened from 7 am to 8 pm, weekdays; till 1 pm Saturday & till 11 am on Sunday.
fresh seafood, had an outer eating terrace with an ocean view, lovely inside, a bit more expensive than other local restaurants, but the food really was great.
Favorite Dish: the lobster spaghetti.
three of the four of our group ordered this, and instead of bringing out three plates, they brought out a dish full of spaghetti and lobster. really great way to serve it to us as we all shared this with our other friend who ordered a huge plate of mussels that were delicious.
my mouth waters thinking about it now.
