The title says it all. The service is.. so so, but the food..
Broth was just terrible. Really terrible.In fact the worst I've tried. Ever. By far.
The second a bit better(note the bar is set really not high) but stil poor.
So we left hungry and disappointed.

My advice.. Avoid. Far and wide

On a wonderful winter day we hiked from Skadanscina to Solkan and then stopped at this restaurant for a lunch. The lady who took the orders was very friendly. We had gnocchi with fungi porcini, pasta with wild boar meat, an ombolo (a sort of a pork steak), a chicken steak in a cheese sauce and a pizza. All dishes were decent and the price was reasonable.

I normally eat pork each and every time I pass through Slovenia, been doing so for years, always enjoyed and liked the exerience.

This time I was late on my schedule and rather than eat at my usual restaurant in Podgrad, I have chosen to stop at this one.

I should have known something was wrong, as the place was empty.

A waitress came to the table and passed us over a plate with paper napkins and cutlery to pass around (call that table service!) and asked us what we wanted and we replied
3 plates of roast pork with side dish, she did not mention the price (and we did not ask, so our fault).

She brought 3 plates with 3 little chunks of pork each but considering bones and all, there was very little meat.

And thankfully so because that roast pork did not taste right, but we were angry and ate most of it.

Then came the first nasty surprise, we were charged 14 € for the meal which in Slovenia is top price and normally you get three time as much and much better food for that price.

Then that same night we had food poisoning symptoms such as diarrhea and we spent the next two days recovering - I can't prove it was due to the food I have eaten, if I knew for certain
I would have opened a personal injury lawsuit.

So this is for me the worst place I have ever eaten, and it was expensive too.

My advice is don't go there.

We spend 120 euros (30e per person!) but the price is not comparable to the food and service - too much money. In conclusion the whole experience was not good, I would never go again to this place for any reason and I don't recommend this restaurant, not even to my worst enemy.

In a few words...you should better try McDonalds a few kilometers away...opposite the restaurant. That bad!!
