Restaurant has a nice atmosphere and steaks are a good choice. They also serve fish, but it was not a good choice. In a portion of a sea bass file with pumpkin risotto were only few little pieces of a fish and a large amount of risotto, although the price was the same as for a steak.

It is a very nice place in a suburb of Ljubljana. They have plenty of space inside and two gardens (terrace and a garden) for summertime. Service is good and they offer good food.

Place is a bit from Ljubljana downtown but very convenient lets say after hiking in nearby popular Smarna gora. They serve almost everything you like and they have wide selection of quality wines as well. Parking space is large and there is also playground for kids next to it.

I love the restaurant and the ambient and the stuff is very friendly. It is not a bad idea to do a reservation because sometimes they are full and you can stay without a seat. Food is tasty and T-bone steaks are delicious. Steaks are worth every single penny!

If I could give another star, I would. We arrived to a busy room, yet were immediately greeted by a cheerful waiter and given a table. They took our order and brought our food within the space of like 10 minutes, so you'd think maybe the food wouldn't be that great, but the pizza I had was no joke the... More

Location is not in the center of Ljubljana, but this is no problem. You can go by car, bus,...Restauration has a big parking place. Servis, food, staff are good/nice. The italian ambiance. Sometimes you need reservation. The place is good for big group and family. The prices are a little higher.

This restaurant is really stuck in the past. The menu is the same as it was 10 years ago, interior as well. But the real problem is the staff: forgetfull, uninspiring... they are not rude, but not helpful either. There are planty better options to eat in Ljubljana.
