To be recommended. The service personnel is friendly and very knowledgeable about what the restaurant offers. The fish's up is a must. Fresh fish prepared in the oven with potatoes: a dream! Portions are big, so it makes sense to share. A fantastic experience!

Visited Izola on a very rainy day and ducked from cafe to cafe and managed to get in a bit of a soggy walk before lunch. We'd read good things about the Marina and so gave it a go. We sat on a pleasant (covered) terrace out front with a lovely view of the harbour. We had an inexpensive three-course set lunch deal. The service was good and the food certainly lived up to our expectations. The seafood is obviously the speciality and we each had a tasty big sea bass for main course. My creme brulee was nice but I prefer a hard caramelised topping which for me is an integral part of the experience. An added bonus was that we were bale to park in one of the hotel's parking spaces by the harbour. Might be more difficult in high season though.

After hearing so many good things about Marina, we've decided to make a reservation and see what the hype was all about. Sadly, something was wrong and we weren't put on the reservation list, so they did all they could to find us a table. And because we knew that things like this could happen to anyone, we just said ok, let's go with it. And we were awed! We ordered a five course meal and got much, much more. The meals were amazing, very pleasing to look at but even better to taste/eat. We ordered a cold fish plate, "pidoče" which are local seashells, pasta with mushrooms, seabass which was to die for and lastly a very light dessert. They gave us wine on the house and added a sorbet, because of the mixup with the reservation. The waiters made us feel like we were the only people in the restaurant and they were always around to top-up our glasses with wine. Overall, the price is very reasonable, their food is amazing and local-based and their staff is very helpful. If you don't know what to get, try their prepared menu choices and you will not be disappointed.

I truly think that this is one of the best restaurants in Izola, if not one of the best on the seaside of Slovenia. We will surely come back.

We visited at a busy time on the recommendation of this being the best restuarant. The service was slow and poor, I was quite offended when the waiter topped up the wine glases of the 2 males and left without topping up the glasses of the ladies. The food was ok, a little on the pricey side, but I guess you pay for the view.
