Most probably the best diner ever. It's not just a superb daily fresh sea food, it's a story behind every single dish. Absolute recommendation.

Za Gradom seemed a down-to-earth gostilna in a suburban area of Koper, above the village of Semedela. The surprise arrived when Darko, the owner, came to take the orders. First, he spoke Italian perfectly; second, the offering sounded absolutely superb: traditional and innovative in the same time, based on locally sourced ingredients prepared with a spirit of nouvelle cuisine.

It is one of the best and innovative fish restaurants in the region. Just let Darko lead your through the meal and enjoy "dangerous liasons" of heavenly good food. PS.: The "secret" is that even guitar god E. C. ate there. Ask Darko to show you his signature in book of guests.

We went there a day before and the chef told us: "Sorry dudes we are full for today. Maybe you eat a pizza today and return tomorrow for something real" So we did! The atmosphere was awesome.

We had, after long absence in Slovenia, a family dinner at Za Gradom. What a great experience ! Revival of slow sea food with continental touche of fresh mushrooms and herbs. Absolutely recommended. As a starter carpaccio of sears with lemon juice and truffel or sea shell salad, what a tasteful beginning. Pasta as second dish is almost famous in... More

At the Gostil za gradom you can get some delicious Istrian food and wine mostly refosco – typical red wine and malvasia. Owner of the restaurant is very nice and with every food you get also the story which is also, like the food, very tasty. Restaurant is located about 1,5 km from Koper and you have a nice view.
