The place was recommended to our group by a waitress in a cafè near the castle. Once we entered the restaurant it felt like a typical local Slovenian place. The waiters were dressed in traditional Slovenian clothing and were quite kind to our company. We were a party of 7 and ordered the three kinds of platters with meat. One... More

Absolutely wonderful gurman experience. Very tasty food, well prepared and cooked, traditional Slovenian Cuisine, dishes very well balanced and carefully chosen to well appealing tasty menu. We recommend: "Game plate"as the main dish and traditional Slovenian desert which tastes like apple-pie strudel 4.0 :-)

In Lublijana everybody was recommending us this place. We arrived there and we were just asked to change the table in a unfriendly way. On the menu we found a lot of untypical food and many offers from Italy. That's basically not what we expect in a local place. The prices were very high and the goulash soup looked nice... More

As a tourist this restaurant fascinated us. Go inside and take a full tour so beautiful and unique. The food is amazing so be sure to step outside your comfort zone and try a local dish. People were so friendly and the customer service was excellent.

Had a delicious pate with crusty bread followed by goulash in a bread bowl. Everything was tasty and well prepared/cooked. The goulash was huge and very very meaty. The price was reasonable and the staff pleasant.

Nice restaurant in the old part of Ljubljana (pedestrian zone) few meters from the City hall. Wide choice of traditional food and good local wine. The mushroom soup in a bread bowl for starter, »orehovi (walnut) štruklji« for dessert are recommended. Waiters are friendly and organized. Wi-fi is free.

I thought of giving it 5 at first, because everything was on point, the atmosphere, the waiter and most importantly the food was fresh and deliciously prepared. But I'd have to go back to try out a different dish and if then everything is as delicious as it was the last time, I'll definitely rewrite my review. Ps: we ordered... More
