The name 'Stara Oljka' (Old Olive Tree) hides an intimate message, typical of every mighty Olive tree.
Since time and memorial people have always enjoyed sitting and talking around the sturdy base of an olive tree, telling tales, encaptured by the sheer pleasure of the shade of its leafy branches, discussing their thoughts and emotions.
As well as out on the sunny plains, one can even in the midst of modern Slovene Istra - Portorož, find a place where time stops just for a moment. A place where you can breathe in the air of authenticity and homeliness, open the door to a new form of enjoyment and weave a chain of new friends. The 'Stara Oljka' is a suitable location for all this, where tradition and people come together in one. A rich a la carte menu of traditional home cooking adds the mark of a special and unique experience, unrepeatable, as is each encounter under a good old olive tree.
Each aroma, each bite conjures a story about people and their coexistance with nature and the environment. Food is not just something we like to taste, but something to learn about.
