Barbecue by the sea

If you’re looking for a seaside restaurant in Bale, look no further than the restaurants in Mon Perin: panoramic restaurants with a view of the Adriatic Sea, where you can taste the top fresh fish and meat specialities, from starters to first courses, and enjoy fried and grilled dishes while overlooking the sea.

The restaurants of Mon Perin stand out for their pleasant, welcoming atmosphere, and have an internal dining room and a charming external space overlooking the sea.

There are three restaurants:

San Pol in the San Polo area is a rustic, informal restaurant, just a few metres from the sea. It takes its name from the ancient name of San Polo, the area in which the restaurant is located, characterised by the presence of the ruins of an ancient Romanesque church. At the San Pol Restaurant, diners can taste traditional dishes of Bale and Istria, as well as Italian and international dishes. Meat lovers know it only too well: nothing is better than a barbecue by the sea. The scent of the embers. The sizzling of the fat. A glass of red wine to bring out the flavour of a succulent steak. The barbecue brings with it the pleasure of food, but also that of socialising with friends and family, engaging all the senses. An excellent location in which to enjoy an aperitif at sunset, where you can find the most beautiful dawn in the world – just ask Giacomo Casanova!

Mol Picio, in the Colona area is the leading restaurant in the Mon Perin Campsite. Inspired by the restaurants of the large Michelin star-winning hotels, Mol Picio is a place where you can taste first class extra-fresh fish, Florentine steak, rich fish soups and exquisite risottos, all accompanied by the vegetables grown in the Fresh Market and by excellent Istrian wine. But don’t think that Mol Picio is a formal restaurant! Despite its modern furniture and large crystal terrace right beside the sea, it is the ideal space for every occasion, from a family breakfast to a romantic dinner for two.

The excellent cuisine, fresh, carefully selected fish and the impeccable service provided by a staff of expert, friendly professionals, make the restaurant the ideal location for a lunch or dinner in the family or with friends, but also for organising private events.

Porto Bus, in the Colona area, is the newest of the three restaurants in the Mon Perin Campsite. Surrounded by the tall trees typical of the Mediterranean scrub (such as holm oak and ash trees), it has a cool, colourful design that makes it modern but well-integrated with the surrounding environment.

It is perfect for families, who can enjoy a meal while leaving their children to play in the adjacent play park, but also for everyone else who is careful about their diet: indeed this restaurant, as well as traditional dishes, also offers a wide selection of vegetarian and gluten-free dishes, not to mention lots of fresh fruit and vegetables – grown in our Fresh Market! Obviously, don’t miss the mixed grill washed down by a glass of excellent red or white Istrian wine.

Discover all the restaurants in Mon Perin and taste all the excellent Istrian flavours they offer.
