Our group was around 12 people and the staff were able to service us as if we were only two! Great wine and beer, starters, meal, and desert. We had all... More

We split a very tasty mushroom and scallop noodle dish as a warm appetizer and then had veal done in 2 traditional ways. They were both fabulous. The peach strudel for dessert was a great finish. Hats off to our... More

Amazing mushroom and rucola soup, homemade noodles with vegetables, grilled seabass with buckwheat, tender veal made in traditional Slovenian way. Desserts were also great, especially cinnamon icecream with pumpkin oil and seeds. A bit pricey but they have menus with soup/main dish/salad/dessert for around 15€ which... More
