ABOUT STARA GOSTILNA
Stara gostilna (Old restaurant) is the reason why you don’t come to Piran just for the sea. Stara gostilna invites you on a special journey to experience the luxury of authentic flavours, just a few steps from the Piran promenade.
We are one of the oldest restaurants in Piran, but our chef lives the third millennium. We combine local culinary heritage with youthful imagination and talent. This is why Stara gostilna is actually always young.
Stara gostilna is hidden amongst the old houses of Piran. It is like an elegant glass cabinet that addresses only the connoisseurs. Its alluring and glamorous ambience is small but exceptionally rich. It is velvety black, yet full of creative spark. It will uncover the mystery of hedonism – how to slow down the pace of life and surrender to the luxury of the moment.
Stara gostilna can accommodate up to 20 guests, but you can also book it just for yourself – for a private event or intimate dinner, just for two. Let everything revolve around what you want!
FLAVOURS OF STARA GOSTILNA
The cuisine of Stara gostilna focuses on the local environment, which has a long-standing tradition of salt-making and is rooted in the city of love with timeless romance. The temperament of the Mediterranean, the play of the seasons, and the youthful enthusiasm of the chef intertwine with the flavours on the plates.
We shape the future with a creative transformation of the culinary past of the local environment and the best ingredients. Old is only in the name, while the new and the young are on full display on our plates. Gourmet treats which have become a constant in our offer.

THE FACES OF STARA GOSTILNA
When youthful innovation and experienced prudence go hand in hand, they can push back the culinary frontiers. With the support of a well-attuned team, our main creative forces, Donata Krašek and Kristian Zule, strive for cosmopolitan plates and perfect service.
Donata is the boss, who has been managing Stara gostilna since 1997. With passion and a clear vision, she has transformed it from a conventional sea restaurant into a restaurant of new culinary dimensions. In 2020, the team was joined by a budding new chef, Kristian Zule – Kiki. The small restaurant offers him a lot of room to develop his talent, experiment, and use his imagination to prepare plates that awaken the observer’s desire. Today, he is the youngest Slovenian chef with a Michelin recognition.
We know that nothing connects people as strongly as good food. So why not give someone the gift of experience? Make the wishes of your loved ones or your business partners, or even your own, come true with a perfect culinary gift.
