    Seafood from the Adriatic

    by DrewV Updated Oct 2, 2003

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: In Piran, you'd be a silly, silly person not to order seafood. Strangely, seafood seems to be quite tasty when eaten by the seaside. Maybe it's the salt air, maybe it's the fact that it was caught that very day, whatever the reason, the seafood is brilliant, especially with the melange of Italian flavours at Slovene prices. Fantastic! I had calamari that would make you weep for joy. Really.

    And since Italian is an official language of this region, you don't have to speak Slovene to feel the love. I mention that, since I find that a lot of people speak ''Menu-talian,'' in other words, they can't hold a conversation with your average Florentine, but they can order linguine con vognoli. Well, in Piran, let your Menu-talian fly free!

    CAN'T REMEMBER.....: NOW I HAVE TO EXPLAIN......

    by eden_teuling Written Jul 2, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In this postcard you can see a building with 3 huge arches, top right ......

    This is a lovely place: view on Tartini Square and view on the Harbour and all that is there and happens there.....

    They serve perfect pizzas e.g. and one day I had a sandwich pizza.

    I had never heard of such a thing and tried one: wow, it was great! I can recommend that to you.
    Their prices are not high at all, service was very fine and you can sit and enjoy your meal inside or outside inder the 3 arches.....

    Favorite Dish: The sandwich pizza, definitely!

    (Nooooo, not a SANDWITCH, see my GREECE PAGES )

    Oh, one more thing....see next tip and you will know that you are at the right place!!

    PIVAN: DINNER IN THE COMPANY OF 3 CATS.....

    by eden_teuling Written Jul 2, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    after about half an hour, with the smells of the hot and cold dishes carried around on the sea breeze, a kind cat arrived and took place under my chair....

    Half an hour (or less) later nr. 2 walked in and last but not least this one with the tip of its tongue between its lips, appeared.....

    This would never be tolerated in The Netherlands but here in Piran the waiters were used to it......and we didn't mind.......the more the merrier....

    Favorite Dish: The cat and I happened to have the same preference to FISH DISHES, but she, poor animal can't pay and asks me if I have a bite to spare......of course I had....

    bar "da noi": aperitif: karst ham and beer

    by call_me_rhia Written Jun 14, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    More than a restaurant this is a bar and beergarden, by the sea. A great place to relax, unwind, and taste some delicious pre-dinner snacks. Zlatorog beer seems to be really good

    Favorite Dish: a platter of yummy local ham left to age in karst caves

    Pizza & seafood

    by COHbKA Written Mar 26, 2003

    Pizza & beer in the afternoon and seafood & wine at night... We ate at restaurants along Presernovo naberezje, and can't complain about anything. This is a tourist destination, so restaurants with table cloths were a little more expensive than we expected, for our budgets at least. Lots of cats were wandering around tables as we sat outside in one of the restaurants...didn't bother us too much...but thought i'd warn you :)

    OH - and don't forget gelato for desert :) the best i tried outside of Italy.

    Pavels I and II: Nice but overpriced

    by Figbash Written Oct 13, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    These two restaurants a few metres apart are in prime positions along the shore front and capitalise on the ready flow of passers by. The food is reasonable but by Piran standards expensive. However, you can sit outside under cover even in the rain and gaze out to sea.

    Favorite Dish: I can recommend the pasta with truffles and the blitva (described in the English translation of the menu as “local spinach”).

    Kaverna Gallerija: Good for an espresso

    by Figbash Written Oct 13, 2002

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This may be the best place in Piran to take coffee and is popular with locals as well as with visitors. The café is in the old loggia and there is an outside seating area as well as many tables inside. As well as drinks, cakes are served but no other food. The espresso is good here.

    Pri Mari: Piran's best by far

    by Figbash Written Oct 12, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great little place run by ex-pat Venetians -- owners very friendly and speak fluent English as well as Slovene, Italian and German and doubtless other tongues. Istrian, Italian and Slovenian dishes using fresh local produce. Cheaper than the tourist trap eateries along the main shore in Piran but cuisine in a different league entirely. Unmissable!

    Favorite Dish: Tagliatelle with fresh porcini mushrooms.

    lichinga's Restaurant Tip

    by lichinga Written Sep 12, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: Fish is a must, of course. It is generally garnished with tomato, onion and oregano. Mussels, oysters, clams and 'datteri' are also very common on the table. It is to be considered that 'datteri' are not officilly allowed due to the environmental spoilage caused to collect them (they grow IN the rocks).
    Please, forget about beer: this is a land of wine. In that region there are just two kinds of wines which are locally grown: Refosk (red) and Malvazija (white). Both of them are good, though not excellent.

    Piran's waterfront is packed with restaurants (mostly fish and a picerija or two) and cafes. Just by the harbour was my favourite cafe...with a large terrace overlooking the sea...a great place for ena kava prosim!

    Pretty nice environment. We ate outside and had beautiful view to old buildings of Piran. Service is very good. And of course, the food. Try seafood but also pizzas are tasty.

    Favorite Dish: Delicious sea food, you have to try it :)

    by maksim_caine Updated Aug 25, 2002

    The two 'PAVEL' fish restaurants are without doubt the best places for eating in Piran. I personally prefer PAVEL II which is located directly on the sea promenade near Hotel Piran. Try the mixed grill of various seafood and the pasta dishes!

    The coffee was excellent and I also noticed they offer breakfast (pancakes/crepes, croissants etc.). Only the prices are a bit high.

    I haven't eaten here yet, but people recommended it to me, so it's probably nice. A bit more expensive, I suppose, considering that all prices are slightly higher on the coast.
