I had a business dinner at TORKLA, last December.
The athmosphere is just perfect, the fireplace was runnign adn it is used indeed to prepare the best possible meat and fish specialties!
The personnel is very kind and professional; apetizers are offered by the Hosue,
Large tables with very confortabel chairs and relaxed ambience.
The food was at the absolute top!

Yesterday I went again to have dinner at Torkla.
Have been there many times, and as always, everything was perfect.
Amazing starters.
Great wines.
What was espetially well done this time was the steak.
See some pictures attached.
Recommended.

A blessing in disguise. Boyfriend arranged a nice getaway weekend in the istrian village Korte, not wanting to stay in one of the generic sometimes even overcrowded hotels on the seaside. By chance I noticed a good rating of the local restaurant Hiša Torkle on trip advisor and in the national top 30 restaurants, so I reserved us a nice dinner setting for a friday night dinner.

We arrived at the restaurant one hour earlier, since we were hungry and wanted to catch a nice sunset over the hills. This posed no problem for the restaurant staff, which served us effortlessly and efficently - a trend set for the rest of the evening.
We ordered a 5 course degustation menu for 2 persons and gave allowed the waitor to make the best wine pairings for each meal. Since I am not a fan of seafood I requested a more meat and less-seafood menu, and they delivered in full.
First course was a selection of chicken pate with caramelized onion marmelade, beef carpaccio, tuna with ginger and wasabi, and beef with tuna and peppers. This was coupled with local white Malvasia wine.
Second course was ravioli with goat cheese and homemade carbonara sauce coupled with a white wine from Blažič-another local producer.
Third course was Krško-poljski pig (region in Slovenia) rib and bean puree with red cabarnet sauvignon.
Fourth course was prepared by chef Kovačič on the open fire in the dining room. Perfect medium rare ( without asking your preference) beef with a side dish of potatoes and veggies with a red cuvee.
Dessert was served in three parts: meringue with persimmon sauce. Seasonal ice cream of chesnut with persimmon sauce and carob biscuit and mango ice cream with something I forgot about, since we coupled the dessert with a sweet dessert wine from the Steyr region - Skrivnost (sanctum wine ). Fun fact: the persimmons (kaki in slovenian) are from their own back garden.

I would really like to emphasize impecable service and perfect portion size as well as a very relaxed fine-dining atmosphere without being overly pompous.

Thank you Hiša Torkla, we are definitely returning soon.
