In the hinterland of Izola, between olive groves and vineyards, lies the village of Korte – a great starting point for nature and sports lovers. The restaurant Gostilna Korte has more than 50 years of tradition based on authentic Istrian cuisine with a touch of modern culinary specialties. The most distinguishable qualities of the restaurant are carefully prepared home-made dishes and friendly staff. Every day, guests are offered fresh home-made bread with olives, excellent pasta, seafood and meat delicacies, prepared exclusively with local olive oil, and carefully selected bottled wines.
On the corner of the Veliki trg square, by the fishing harbour, you will find the Marina Hotel. Its important added value lies in the top-grade restaurant, boasting a longstanding tradition. The hosts, master chef Ivica Evačić-Ivek and his staff, rely only on the best and freshest locally grown ingredients. Their motto is “from the sea to the plate” – all seafood is fresh and caught that same day. They can point to the harbour or the neighbouring hills and show you exactly who provided the fish or where the olive oil and the wine came from. The silver thread of the restaurant is respect for food and the unique flavours of Istrian and Mediterranean classic dishes are enough to entice even the most demanding guests.
July is coming to an end and everyone is eagerly awaiting August, which will bring us the biggest summer festivity – Fishermen’s Feast. Even before the Feast, we will be able to attend a number of musical evenings, film screenings under the stars, the Tomato sauce festival, and the International fair of comic books and board games.
Enjoy in the summer and spend your holidays with your family in the Slovenian Istria. Izola offers many possibilities of active leisure time: have fun with your youngest while building sand castles or stone towers on Izola’s beaches, visit workshops in the Archaeological park San Simon, or take a walk through Izolana – the house of the sea.

The path of restaurant Sonja begins in a picturesque Istrian village above the town of Izola in 1988, when delicacies made from the gifts of Istrian soil were first served on a plate in the restaurant. In the new millennium, after more than a decade of preparing home-made Istrian food, the restaurant transferred to a new location in the most well-known fishing town in Slovenia – Izola.
