Pleasant atmosphere with homemade Slovenian dishes. It is a pet-friendly restaurant. It was wonderful and we loved the three types of "štrukli" the most.

The Vovko Inn opened its doors in the year 1977, when Marina and Anton Vovko decided to go into catering business in their own house in Ratez. In 1996, rooms were added. The Inn's interior shows a rustic style home, because the Vovko family appreciates domesticity and tradition; they nevertheless respect innovation, too. Predstavitev6Their cuisine is based on dishes from Dolenjska region (Lowe Carniola), mixed with dishes made on natural charcoal. Dishes made over the fire represent the oldest method of cooking in the world. The wine list includes 100 names of predominantly Slovene winemakers; they also offer house wine, because they have their own wine cellar near St. Rok church (Saint Rocco) in Tolsti vrh. The Inn is managed by Rok and his wife Manca, Rok's parents Marina and Anton are still their indispensable right hands.
