Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We are regular guests at Gostilna Grabar either for lunch or dinner. The menu is traditional with a modern twist, just what you would expect from a Gault&Millau listed restaurant. Friendly staff and an excellent wine list.

This is, in my opinion, the best restaurant in Ptuj. Food is delicious and tasty, and they offer great selection of excellent wines, of which me and my fiance tried local sweet white wine, which was amazing. Portions for that king of prize are very generous. Service is very friendly and professional. I suggest this restaurant to everyone, who wants to eat really good.

This isn’t our first time at that restaurant, so we knew what to expect, but they managed to impress us again with their creations. We ordered a 6-course tasting menu. I have to write that each sequence was phenomenal. The ingredients were top notch and the flavor combinations simply divine. The highlight was the beef rib-eye. Perfectly baked, with perfect side dishes and sauces. I don’t have enough words of praise for the kitchen. We will definitely be back for years to come.

This is a very pleasant restaurant, light and fresh on the outskirts of town with good views of the area. We started with a really good and generous 'surprise from the kitchen' of pate with a little sausage and pork scratchings. We then ordered the ravioli stuffed with black pudding and topped with a scallop. Well our ravioli arrived stuffed with a green cream and a cheesy sauce - not unpleasant but the ravioli and the sauce did not go well together and it wasn't what ordered. But ok. Then the main course - well my grilled trout arrived very well grilled on one side, actually quite hard and boiled on the other. This was accompanied by rather nice lentils and (dare I say it) yesterday's roast potatoes and everything was rather cold. My husbands steak was very well grilled, so much so that it had an unpleasant bitter taste. Prices also were a little on the high side particularly the mistaken ravioli. Judging by previous reviews I am prepared to accept that this was an off day, but if so some apology should have been made for wrong order and bad cooking. A shame as things started so well.

We were tempted by nice pictures at the reviews and we decided to stop for lunch while in Ptuj. The restaurant has got a classy look and the food is served in a really nice way. As for the taste, I guess our expectations were a bit higher - everything was fresh, but nothing that we would go back for. The place has both a regular and a daily menu, and we chose dishes from both - we had pumpkin gnocchi, onion soup and duck cannelloni plus chicken menu from the daily offer. I also need to mention a long waiting time, although the number of customers was not excessive.

After the covid lockdown, we were all looking forward to returning to restaurants and this restaurant delighted us again. I am attaching a few pictures, simply the food was phenomenal, the service too. We definitely stay true to this restaurant and will be happy to come back to it again. Definitely to another amazing tasting menu.

Very good surprise. This is a gastronomic restaurant in the middle of nowhere. Excellent service, delicious food and good vegetarian options. We were very impressed by the amuse bouche. Unexpected in a Slovenian restaurant in the country side.

We had the Ptuj Special 3 course dinner of regional dishes. Excellent food with superb presentation. The view over Ptuj was beautiful and the staff were very friendly. Only 5 drive from town. Highly recommended.

Grabar is a bit out of the wonderful town of Ptuj and no tourist would visit it by chance. Therefore, the owner and chef Alenka Grabar has to have local guests in mind. The problem is that local guests want traditional food; dishes that they have been having as kids when visiting with their parents and grandparents. How to combine this with the chef's wish to create modern, innovative dishes? Well, the chef put both together and - succeeded. In use of modern approaches and techniques, she manages to stay on the right side of a thin line between innovative and just-for-the-sake-of-it line. The traditional beef soup was perfect. Traditional (perfect wheat semolina dumplings, pieces of meat that made the soup) and less traditional (dehydrated carrots) elements were added and made it a perfect link between the past and now. Another Slovenian traditional dish for weekend lunch is fried chicken. Grabar gets their chickens from the huge poultry company in Ptuj, but each chicken is traceable to the farm where it was raised. The meat didn't taste like industrial chicken; the chef's mastery of spices and frying technique made it one of the best fried chickens we had in Slovenia. The gibanica cake is another variation of a traditional dish. By adding lemon zest and blueberries, it was not only light, but also refreshing and utterly tasty. Another thing was traditional: prices. A lunch with soup, meat-based main dish, and dessert costs 14 EUR! Amazing!!!

We went there as a family of four for a four-course dinner and were pleasantly impressed with the quality of food and service. The food was very tasty and meticulously served on a plate in a very colorful way which was beautiful to the eye. It is mostly made of homegrown seasonal ingredients. They also offer some very good and well recognized local wine selection for a fraction of a price you would find elsewhere. Also, the view from the terrace did not disappoint. However, there was just 1 (very kind and helpful) server for all the tables even as the restaurant got a bit busier in the evening hours. But it was definitely not something that would deter us from another visit. Prices: 4-course dinner (tasting menu) = 36€/person 5-course dinner (tasting menu) = 45€/person a glass (1,0dl) of well recognized local red wine = 3-4€ (not sure, but cheap anyway) dessert ordered extra = 5€ All in all, most definitely worth the price. Recommend!
