Cozy but more formal restaurant in old tow in a cozy old house. Slovenian food with dishes such as rabbit and horse. Extensive slovenian wine selection by the bottle. Not cheap but not too expensive either. Good for special occasions.

This is not a cheap place at all, so one would expect. We booked the place and went for a dinner. Like most of other popular places in Ljubljana, it is located in the central historical part of the city. It is no small place, we sat outdoor, for the weather was nice. The place was filled at some 20%... More

Located in old town, this is a very good restaurant to get dinner or lunch if you want to try different Slovenian dishes. They also have good food from other places (italian, German etc.). In good weather, their garden is a very nice, peaceful place to enjoy your meal.

U can find top dishes for only 16€ per menu and this year I also visited Spajza restaurant in my town Ljubljana. The welcome was warming and we really liked retro ambient. The food and wine were extra delicious and we really... More

Went here on local recommendation for my wife's 60th birthday. It did not disappoint.Serves traditional foods with a modern twist. Great atmosphere matched only by the service. It is expensive by Slovenian standards 50-60 euros a head, but well worth it. Was full midweek in October, so booking is advisable.

We booked this place on the thought of good old Sloveian street food however, we seemed to have got it wrong. Yes the place is lovely and yes the staff are friendly but for the price we paid we felt we were not getting what we thought. As we had booked a table we thought we had better go ahead... More

This was probably 4th time during this summer and I am always super happy about everything there. The garden is superb, has a nice shade, staff is very professional, food is excellent and prices are as they should be. So happy to be coming bqck with tourists, guests, groups of international colleagues or a casual Sunday lunch with friends. Great!

Thank nstravelman28
