Piran has great restaurants but this is my favorite Food Spot... It is kind of a self service restaurant... fresh and tasty, the price of seafood here is really fair, I also love the square and the area around it.

Beautiful fresh fish and seafood, service with a smile. Casual place but on a lovely local square. Please note, there is only one non-fish meal to choose from and cash only.

An art of street food, with fresh fish, cooked in a simple way. Sitting there in the square in a sunny day was a nice way to discover Piran. Nice ambiente. We had grilled calamari and sea bass with polenta and fries. Excellent price/quality

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

After reading all the reviews online, we thought this would be a great pick. It first started when the waiter told us that they only accept cash - this wasn’t a problem but the restaurant was full and a table just left and vacated for...More
