Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you want to eat here, try to avoid dinner time or try to at least make a reservation because the restaurant is constantly full. We got rejected here two times, before finally scoring ourselves a seat on our third try during our last day's lunch. Julija is one of the highest rated restaurants in Ljubljana and its deservedly so. Despite being rejected two times, I would say it was worth it because the food here is phenomenal. I ordered the steak and it was one of the juiciest steak I have ever tasted, cooked to such a perfection that it gave my mouth orgasm. Seriously, it was that awesome. The food and atmosphere also felt authentic, unlike the usual high end restaurants that give a posh feeling. Would have easily given Julija five stars, but considering the journey that we went through to get a seat, I think that the seating layout can definitely be improved. Given the high volume of customers, it was also difficult to get the staff's attention sometimes. Despite all that, seriously, the steak is out of this world.

I did tremendous research to find a local place by the river where we could enjoy some traditional Slovenian recipes. We were not disappointed! I was particularly happy that they offered gluten free food, and the waiter was knowledgeable and friendly guiding me through the menu. Excellent home cooked food.

We had beef goulash and Lamb cutlets to share and they were cooked to perfection. We also had a side salad dressed with a very tasty pumpkin seed oil. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. He was also very knowledgable about the wine list and we had Slovenian wine which was delicious. All dishes reasonably priced too. Worth visiting for lunch or dinner!

A cosy restaurant with a decent menu, acceptable pricing and friendly stuff. A waiter was very nice and proposed certain adaptations to the dishes in order to meet the taste of our 6-year old girl. The only thing we missed are so called "house-selected" wine, which are usually a perfect choice.

We visited for an evening meal on a Saturday. We phoned to reserve a table and were glad that we did as it was busy when we arrived. The service was great and very attentive. I asked to make a change to my order and they were very accommodating. The food was all fresh and tasted great and was well priced for the quality and location. We would love to visit again!

I stumbled across this place after realising that many restaurants in Ljubljana are closed on Sunday evenings. This restaurant was one of the best places I ate at during my trip. Due to social distancing policies, there were no available seats inside (I hadn't booked) and it was cold and rainy. They sat me outside under a heater with a blanket and it was amazing and atmospheric in the city streets. There were lots of great traditional dishes on offer, and my waitress was happy to offer me smaller portions so that I could have 3 courses to myself. The food was served with delicious bread and magnificent pumpkin seed oil. I would highly recommend for a good filling meal and incredible atmosphere. My server was incredibly attentive, accommodating and friendly.

We had a very pleasant meal at Julija restaurant. It is well situated in the Old Town and only a short walk from our hotel (the very good Adora Hotel). The restaurant was very busy on the night we visited so recommend booking in advance.

Located in the heart of Ljublijana, we were lucky to get a table for two on a Tuesday evening although it was only 6 o’clock. We both ordered veal filet with asparagus and truffle. Although we question that the veal actually was the filet, it tasted very good. The waiter was helpful and attentive. We had excellent slovenian red wine with the meat and a tasty apfel strudel for dessert. Would recommend.

In contrast to some of its neighbouring restaurants, Julija offers big flavours and a warm atmosphere at a truly budget price. It does not pretend to be haute cuisine but provides an enjoyable, cosy environment and seems to be massively popular. As we had not enjoyed typical Slovenian food, we both opted for the goulash which was a large, unpretentious bowl of tender beef in a rich sauce with polenta cakes and plenty of bread for mopping. We could have shared, as portions were huge. The accompanying wine, recommended by our friendly and knowledgable waiter, was rich and full bodied. After sufficient time to digest the main course we opted to share a panna cotta which tasted home-made and quivered in a sea of fresh blackcurrants. The final bill was incredibly reasonable and judging by the numbers in the restaurant it's equally popular with visitors and locals alike.

It was a lovely restaurant and tasty way end my trip. The veal with asparagus and truffle potatoes was mouth watering. But what truly made my experience is all the love my dog was getting. Not only was she provided a water bowl but she also was given charcuterie pieces, and tons of pets from both waiters, as well as another restaurant goer. She was having such a good time that I had to get the creme brûlée so that we could stay longer.

We were lured in by the busy-ness of the restaurant, the reviews, and the good-looking menu. We were not at all disappointed. Our meals, filet steaks and cep mushrooms, were cooked to perfection and were so tasty. They came with cheese dumplings, which I was expecting would sink to the bottom of my stomach, but instead they were light and the perfect accompaniment to the sauce. Our waiter, as well as being friendly and very professional, was very knowledgeable and guided us in our choice of local wines. They were excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and would have loved to have extended our stay just to spend more time in this beautiful city and to eat here again. We’ll be back!

It is a very typical Slovenian restaurant with ancient, traditional interiors. The food is really tasty and good and you can ask the waiter for advise about a good red Slovenian wine like Refosk. I had a typical slovenian filled pasta with a sauce of porcini mushrooms and little pieces of bacon and onion. Very warming especially during the cold winters.

We ended up eating outside with no reservations just after it stopped raining. Reservations are a MUST !The food was excellent and very reasonable priced. Staff was very helpful in ordering. We ate here twice during on our stay but had a substantially better experience eating outdoors It was very stuffy inside.
