The proximity of the fertile lands provide for a unique blend of Istrian and maritime cuisine. The traditional dishes of the rural outskirts are based on homegrown produce, thriving among the vineyards and olive groves, while the seaside cuisine relies on fish and molluscs. Local homegrown produce is also sold at the farmer’s market during summer. Enjoy the many flavours of Izola!
Local restauranteurs are committed to the “kilometre zero” initiative, which means that you will always enjoy authentic dishes prepared according to traditional recipes, using local, fresh and wholesome ingredients.
