Description: The Restaurant of Hotel Marina has a long culinary tradition. Every seafood lover will enjoy in the specialities of its renowned Chef Ivica Evačić aka Ivek. He adapts his recipes to the changing seasons and everything is cooked to order – as Ivek never reheats food or uses artificial flavour enhancers on his dishes.

We ended up in Izola after a long bike ride and had no idea where to eat. We ended up at Marina based on the location and the reviews. Given that it’s a hotel restaurant we were expecting an OK and overpriced meal. We were met by an extremely personable waiter suggested that our family of 3 share a risotto with mushrooms and seafood and then a grilled fish and seafood platter with a side dish of Swiss chard and potato. We asked about the sea bass and he explained that it and the other fish on the menu are farmed whereas he would bring us wild fish that is local and fresh. The risotto was fantastic. It was made not with plain mushrooms but with fresh chanterelles! And it was just the right amount. Then the seafood platter arrived and it was gorgeous - with several filets of delicious fish plus grilled shrimp, squid and octopus. It was a lot of food! Unfortunately we filled up on the deliciously soft bread dipped in local olive oil and salt from Piran so had a hard time finishing and absolutely no room for dessert. We had a long ride and a hike ahead of us so did not order wine which would have made the meal beyond perfect.

Beautiful ambient and good fish food. If you are a vegetarian you won't find much. However, I ordered ravioli with truffle'' and I received them in a '' soup of cream and full of cheese that wasn't riccotta as usual. I really couldnt appreciate it and it was really heavy.

I've eaten here several times now but this is the first time I've ever felt a bit ripped off. Fish, potatoes, wine are all great but for 135 euros for 3 people, wow! And this was for lunch.
The ladies enjoyed it so I paid, but next time I will pay more attention to the waiter and and the story he's telling. Tip: ask up front what it's all going to cost!

Dear guest, thank you for your review. The prices in our Restaurant are comparable to other restaurants in the area and we do not exceed in any way. The bill might get higher in case you order bottled wines, which are reasonably more expensive than home wines.
We nevertheless hope to have you as our guest again in the future and that you will enjoy in our freshly prepared dishes.

We took an important diplomat from Asia, it was a very good experience. Chef was caring and accommodating for different tastes, very friendly and food was delicious.
Prices were reasonable.

Ordered lunch menu, started with sea food mix, continued with salad and finished with wild mackarel from the Izola bay. Decent price and the tomato tasted superb.
