“Unforgetable food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Having a meal in this restaurant is really something you must try. The fusion of tastes is really something special. Their menu consists of a variety of dishes from Ljubljana in old days but prepared in a modern way. Whatever you choose there will be no mistake. I tried their 5 plates degustation menu and it was perfect. There was no dish I wouldn't like. Maximum delicious. If you are not hungry, try their ice cream - I dream it.
I have to highlight the place where the restaurant is situated. The old watchtower gives you a gorgeous view of the city. The most beautiful view is in the evening, when admiring the city lights.

The staff is very well trained and knows their profession. They really help guests.

“Beautiful and Delicious with a Fantastic View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We ended up at Restavracija Strelec when we discovered that we couldn't get to the other restaurant at the Ljubljana Castle because of some kind of event involving the mayor and many civil servants.

We were quite early for lunch and so we were able to get a table outside. It was a beautiful day and the view was fantastic!

Our waiter was perfectly professional and was quite helpful.

We didn't have much time so we each only had a main meal. Each dish was beautifully presented - with an amazing range of colours, textures and tastes.

My husband had the "From proper town's chicken runs" (corn-fed roast chicken, potato puree, vegetable chips, vegetables) and I had "the Ljubljana nosy parker or what is hidden in the pockets" (pasta filled with aged cheese ragout with green lentils, vegetables, herbs and mushrooms, aged cheese foam) and both were absolutely delicious.

Restavracija Strelec is definitely worth a visit and try to get a table outside if the day is nice.

“Excellent Choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Probably best to book in advance, particularly if you want a table with a view but all in all a great dining experience.
The food was first class as was the impeccable service.
Both of our meals starters, main course and the choice of recommended Slovenian wine were faultless.
The only slight downer was a charge for tap water to go with the meal, that said a great place to go for that special experience

“Comparable to French Laundry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

The food, service, and atmosphere were exquisite! Beats French Laundry in atmosphere and more accessible service. Equals the legend in food taste. Be prepared to eat! The portions in the tasting menu are not small. The waiter we had, who was fabulous, provided glasses of Slovenian wine that paired perfectly with the food.

The cost was perfectly in line if not less than expected.

Every course was a new experience in culinary delights!!!

“Great food with a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

This place disproves the theory that restaurants with a great view don't have to make an effort with food.
It's located in a turret of the castle with stunning views of the city.
One of the best young chefs in the country runs the place and his food really does justice to the setting.
I'm a big fans of the Galvins in London and the food here is similar in style and quality.
It turns a trip to the castle into a real treat.
Don't be put off by the imposing entrance - book a table or just wander in and you'll never regret it.
The castle is also home to a slightly less formal restaurant which I'm told is just as good.
