Pikol is a family restaurant with tradition and a proud member of JRE Slovenia. Tadej and his team did a perfect job, everything from the start - a glass of their Silveri sparkling wine and rotbeet soup till the dessert was outstanding good! We realy enjoyed our lunch there and i can not wait to return in the summer!

For the main course we take sea bass in salt, baked in the oven together with potato and... More

Pikol is an excellent upscale restaurant With a focus on fish dishes. Beautiful location with a lot of attention to detail in all aspects, especially food creativity and taste. But be prepared for a hefty price.

Pikol is lovely log cabin on a small lake minutes from Nova Gorica. It's family run and lovingly prepared. We had apperitifs outside and the rest of our meal inside. One of the special treats was the tableside preparation of carpaccio. Fascinating to watch a pro at work. Most satisfying to taste whst he's prepared. The food is superb and... More

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in. The setting itself provided the perfect intro, being welcomed by the sound of a fountain in a pond full of water-lilies, carp and frogs, and the food and service were even better. The flavours in the food were simply exquisite and it was clear that a great deal... More
