The friend I traveled with wanted to go for typical Mediterranean food – we checked the menu of almost all the restaurants along the boardwalk in Piran and this one seemed to be the best one. I had soup with bread, egg and cheese as a starter – the combination sounded different to me, so I wanted to try it.... More

Good place to go for a lunch or dinner ... ypical local atmosphere, excellent seafood, so right to pick variety from menu and share it with friends around table ... Very nice view outside as it is located just next to seashore. Prices are very moderate

Hard to see how the reviews here are so all over the place? Is it the time of day, the cooks or waiters working?? Makes no sense. In my experience this restaurant was a gem and almost perfect! We visited all day to see the sites in Piran and finished with a seafood dinner at Pavel. This was by far... More

I was here with my friends and we had a good time. Staff was friendly and helpful, the view is really something if you are there at sunset 😊. The food is not so great. We ate risotto and some pastas, but it was tasteless. They have good wines so you quickly can forget what you ate😁

Service was mediocre, even when the restaurant was pretty empty. Tried the seafood pasta, which was rather flavourful, and portion of seafood was good, with scallops, squid, shrimp, and clams / mussels.

After a lovely day exploring Piran by foot and on the bay. Met our friends at Pavel's for dinner. Dinner for 8 was wonderful presented after a round of drinks and with a delightful sunset. The seafood platter for two was bountiful and included sea bass (2), John Dory, squid and giant prawns nicely grilled. Best seafood on this side... More
