First , to find it , cross the three bridges in direction of the castle and turn right along the waterfront , it's just after a curious bridge which seems to have a bunch of roman columns standing on it .We were tired and hungry , just arrived and needed good food quickly , ready to be a bit more critical than usual .But no need , I had veal with mixed veg and my wife the beefsteak with mushrooms , both of which hit the spot , beautifully cooked and presented .By the way , definition of beef steak seems to vary by country , in this restaurant anyway it means a filet type steak ...for the meal including some wine and dessert it was just over €50 , excellent value by irish standards .Next time we will be more adventurous as we trust the cook , and the waiter .I will let you know .

In Old Town along the river bank, it is located in first floor of medieval building. The intimate setting has vaulted ceilings as well as outdoor along the riverbank. Friendly service. First time I had mushroom soup, grilled sea bass and vegetables while husband had tomato soup with shrimp and grilled octopus and truffle potatoes. Slovenian friends had similar dishes. Dessert was worth eating-a layered torte with Teran wine--light and we all shared. 2nd time, husband and I had the tomato soup and grilled octopus w/potatoes, so good again! Slovenian soups are excellent.

If possible, avoid. Rude staff, average food. Ovepriced. There are a lot better restourants in LJ. Continue on the same street and you will find some.

a well run restaurant. Great food. This is only my 2nd review on Tripadvisor but this is worth the effort. The steak is to die for!

Walk far enough along from the main square (well, round) and you will find The River House. The food was excellent with lots of choice (although they had run out of scallops). The staff were friendly and eager to recommend both food and wine. We were treated to a fabulous Walnut Liqueur at the end of our meal which finished the evening off perfectly.
