This was our first night in Sistiana and we chose Locanda Gaudemous.The shef suggested we tried their tasting menu.We asked not to have any marinated food before we agreed to the suggested menu.Regrettably we were served 2 cold starters which were nothing special a cod mouse and smoked salmon which is not what we were expecting from a tasting menue .After that we asked the waiter the third course to be a hot dish but we were served a marinated cold octopus dish.After we complained to the shef who is the owner he was very rude and very unhelpful.He throw the menue on the table and told us to chose our main courses if we are not happy but they were just as poor.The servise was terrible, no one paid any attention at us after the complain.We ended up paing 93 euros for this terreble experience. We didn't even get an apology .We come from London and we have an extensive experience of different variety of food and this was one of the worst food we ever tasted.Please do not waste your time and money to go there.

I think this place deserves an English review so it can be found by more people.
We went here on the 29th of June for my wife's birthday together with another family.

The chef is proud of his food and if you would prefer the "normal" known Italian food (tourist) then you should not go here as he will more or less refuse your order - he is proud and he wants to provide true Italian food to you. I suggest you accept!

As we could not really decide what to go for we suggested he decide for us so he came with suggested starters and main course and it was a faboulous experience at a very modest price considered the very high quality. It was surely one of the best experiences in food during 2015.

So, if you are prepared to take a step back and get a true food experience - go here, be friendly and nice and ask for his suggestions and then just enjoy! And yes, his suggestions on wine were all excellent as well.

So, to sum it up: absolutely great place IF you are open-minded and can accept to skip the pizza or carbonara (so some tourist might want to stay away) at an excellent pricerange

Me and my gf after a long day at the Beach we came Back to the hotel and decided to have a shower together as something usual, when sudendly the receptionist came running to our Room and asked us if she could check the backroom because there was a flooding on the floor bellow, we did not understand what happen but right after the Owner of the Hotel came knocking our door really hard, I was still in the shower when I heard him talking Loud to my gf and I jumped in and told him that we should not speak To us Like that (very unrespectuful) and then he got mad and started screaming even louder, we tried To understand Why it was our fault? As he said that he built the bathroom as its designed only for one person at the time To have a shower, isn't it crazy? I reply is your plumbing problem Why we should even disucuss this? He got even more upset, now screaming in Italian another friend of us (Italian) companion said that he was saying its our problem not To speak Italian, (not friendly with all foreigners)To end the story we left the hotel but the worst he dared to charged us the full day because the check out was until 12 after our discussion so get got away with that, we found a camping área right in from same price and 3 times better, in our last words we share with him he said that the situation does not affect him at all because people from all over the world loved his hotel ( very cocky). I can not give an you score because it does not exist something lower than zero, tks for reading and look some other Hotels around for sure with so much better customer service

Dopo tanto tempo vedo questa recensione e approfitto adesso in un attimo di pausa per replicare alla gentile coppia quello che è realmente successo:
i giovani signori presi da un eccesso di spirito erotico decidono di fare l'amore sotto la doccia , peccato che però presi dalla foga abbiano inondato l'intero bagno con infiltrazione d'acqua al piano inferiore e danni per oltre 500 euro ( che non ho fatto pagare). Quando ho fatto presente la situazione il giovane Siffredi mi ha anche preso per i fondelli dicendomi che il bagno era fatto male.....a quel punto ho invitato i ragazzi ad andarsene per conto loro prima che mi sfasciassero il resto dell'albergo.

I was booked here as the hotel I booked got overbooked and walked me. It was a nice surprise. The room was small but cosy and the bathroom really nice and elegant. The restaurant was excellent for dinner. Breakfast was rich and tasty.

The hotel is close to Trieste and Duino, worth a day-trip to both places.

Room tip: Try to get a room facing the garden

The location is really not nice, the surroundings are not clean (especially the stairs to go to the seaside) and it is along a traffic road. The building itself is old and the rooms are pretty small. The restaurant has a nice and even trendy terrace, which elegance contrast with the lack of care of the rest of the hotel. The lady who is running the hotel is a very nice person, but the overall impression remains negative. There is no small garden (contrary to what is said in the hotel’s website).
