I'm going to this restaurant for 30 years and it's always very good food and in all these years I have never been disappointed. They have also the best cream cake...even better than in Bled.

"Pri Žabarju" is absolutely amazing. The venue is lovely, very homey yet comfortable, peppered with numerous (yep, you guessed it) frog decorations.
