We were happy to return to a place we used to love a lot. It still is a nice and welcoming restaurant, with rooms that are quite diverse - some more, some less cozy and welcoming. The place was pretty empty when we visited it. We were absolutely not impressed with the waiter, who was a bit pushy and aggressive... More

We've been to some half hearted 'Slovenian' restaurants which Spajza leaves miles behind. A simple, moody and traditional interior was complimented by a sincere and knowledgable waiter who ran after me on the street once he'd discovered I'd departed without my guide book. The food is generous in size and packed with flavour. You can tell this chef is genuine... More

We ate here on the first night of our trip as it was close to our flat. The staff were very attentive throughout and spoke excellent English. We were treated to some free aperitifs which was a lovely touch. All six of us had excellent meals. The deer in particular was a favorite with every one! A fantastic evening in... More

Issue 1: We were a party of five with reservations for dinner. Upon entry, staff could find no reservation. We were reluctantly seated when we presented an email confirmation of the reservation. The waiter seemed very put out with the service and provided little to no help to our guests from the U.S. Issue 2:The food arrived and almost every... More

Only the first room of the four is a pleasant place to sit. Food was very disappointing. Actually we all didn't like most of the four courses. Wines are good. Service is okay. Only the begging for a tip at the end was pathetic. Got the idea this is a bit of a tourist trap.

We ate here early on a week night, and it was not full but nevertheless had a nice cosy atmosphere and the waiter was friendly and helpful, advising us on choices during the meal. The food was very good and we will definitely go back.
