First there was a small cantina with local wines and spirits, nice little place. Then came Fritolin to round the offer on that nice square. I ate there couple of times, always good, basic fish dishes accompanied with good local wine.

What an absolute delight this place was! Slovenian style fish and chip takeaway. Anyone used to British fish and chip shops would find it familiar. You order your food (from a very small menu), they give you a number and you find a seat in...More

Anyone going to Piran should try to visit this little place – although I fear it would get exceptionally busy during the summer months. It is basic, noisy and fun. The menus are written on shutters, and your order is noted on a shell. When...More

Hidden in the middle of Piran, not a typical restaurant for tourist but a lot of local people joined here. Excellent service with very good English. We ordered plate for 2, and price is 28 Euros. Their bread is much better than normal as well.
