Cozy place with very nice food. I usually eat colt (young horse) which I would always recommend. And take chocolate mousse at the end. Its fantastic. Prices are not low but fairly represent quality.

A bit out of the main tourist area but definitely with the extra few hundred meters. Was here in January when Ljubljana is very quiet, but also no local somehow in the place. Resstaurant is in an old house with a number of smaller rooms. I had a nice starter with eggplant/aubergine, tomatoes and cheese from the oven, and a... More

This restaurant got such great reviews, we decided to have a late lunch at it. The ambiance is cozy, the wait staff was friendly. However, the food was just OK. The presentation on the plate was boring. The pasta was drowned in sauce and the fish, endive and potatoes were all the same color. Not very appetizing. My husband had... More

I know lots of people love this place and rate it as one of the best in Ljubljana. Unfortunately, that's not how I see it. I've been to Špajza several times, always coming back in hopes of finally getting the good food everybody else is talking about. Well, it hasn't happened (yet). The last time I was there was with...

We were happy to return to a place we used to love a lot. It still is a nice and welcoming restaurant, with rooms that are quite diverse - some more, some less cozy and welcoming. The place was pretty empty when we visited it. We were absolutely not impressed with the waiter, who was a bit pushy and aggressive... More

We've been to some half hearted 'Slovenian' restaurants which Spajza leaves miles behind. A simple, moody and traditional interior was complimented by a sincere and knowledgable waiter who ran after me on the street once he'd discovered I'd departed without my guide book. The food is generous in size and packed with flavour. You can tell this chef is genuine... More

We ate here on the first night of our trip as it was close to our flat. The staff were very attentive throughout and spoke excellent English. We were treated to some free aperitifs which was a lovely touch. All six of us had excellent meals. The deer in particular was a favorite with every one! A fantastic evening in... More

Issue 1: We were a party of five with reservations for dinner. Upon entry, staff could find no reservation. We were reluctantly seated when we presented an email confirmation of the reservation. The waiter seemed very put out with the service and provided little to no help to our guests from the U.S. Issue 2:The food arrived and almost every... More
