We had a Sunday lunch at Kunstelj and it was tasty. If you are looking for traditional food, this is the place to be: sauer kraut, sausages, potatoes, zganci etc. Mostly meat, but there are also some dishes without meat. They also offer daily lunch menu with three dishes. The interior of the restaurant looks the same as 50 years... More

The service was friendly and the food was very good. The porcini mushroom sauce was vey good, especially as it is not the season for mushrooms. They also have a homemade beer, which was one of the better beers I had from Slovenian brewers, as it had a very nice taste and isn't as bitter as most Slovenian beers. I... More

Yes, this is not a cheap place, but the quality of the food is far above average as well. We started with the cottage cheese and the salami, and then had the venison (stag) with buckwheat and leek, which was delicious! The only criticism (towards the management) is that only one person had to do the service for all guests,... More

Nice place and view. Old furniture. Could be cleaner. Not so pleasant service as we experienced in other Slovenian places. Not expencive but very basic food and taste.

Wow, Gostilna Kunstelj has delicious food and a view that you could stare at forever. The menu offers a mix of local delicacies and more standard fare and we found both to be scrumptious. If you can, I would encourage you to visit, it will be worth it.

Had a meal here with a large group of friends and had lovely food and service. The food is beautifully presented and unlike other restaurants, the portion size is about right - not too big, not too small. All main courses are also served with a side salad, many parts of which are from the garden adjacent to the terrace.... More

I went there for a lunch. For start I ordered coffee but it was a mistake, because it was awful ( burned ). They ned some lessons. Baked liver were good, but I expected more since the prices there are high. Salad looked fresh and local, so that's a big plus. Ambient on terrace is great, old, vintage, you can... More

Split the trout and vegetables dish with a friend. We both were surprised with the excellent flavor. It was a peaceful venue overlooking a valley. Would return if in the area.

The Kunstelj has very nice atmosphere and lovely terace. The food was delicious and the people were very warm and helpfull. It is a very good starting place for visiting nearby Bled or Bohinj, if you stay longer (they offer rooms as well).

It depends how you happen! Sometimes food is very good and also the prices. Sometimes it is not extraordinary and the price is high for the quality and dish! We go very often there to eat hoping it is the right day, because when they want they can cook good dishes, but sometimes we got disappointed! Today the waitress looked... More
