Located in the Tivoli park, Hot Horse serves burgers, steak sandwiches, sausages, and wraps made only with horse meat. There was no line when we arrived around 11:30am, so we were not rushed. First you place your order through an interactive electronic panel, then you pay the electronic panel with cash, credit, or some other mobile option that I am... More

From the start the owner was unpleasant. When i tried to pay card he challenged me on why I wanted to do so. Either offer the option of credit cards or don't. Don't be rude about it. Then I was given 10euros less change than what I was owed. While asking me what I wanted on my condiments the owner... More

The value for money for the horse burger menu was excellent - fries, a drink and the biggest burger I have ever seen with any toppings included. The only down side was my vegetarian husband didn't really have any options - there is a veggy burger but it's literally just the same roll with the same toppings, no burger! He... More

One of the locals tipped me off about Hot Horse when I was talking about being hungry. 15-20min walk from the city center, and just inside the Tivoli park, it's an easy place to reach. You order and pay for your burger on a machine with touch screen interface in multiple languages, and it's being readied right in front of... More

Really big burger, in an amazing location, especially in summer. The burger is really huge and u can add a lot of extras. I suggest to take it without all additional sauces (as mayo, ketch, nachos chease, mustard): they cover the real taste of meat. The horse is good, but cannot be compared with the real sicilian horse meat. One... More

So, I had never tried horse meat and I went for the novelty value most of all. Prices are fine and the place is located in beautiful Tivoli park. However, I found the burgers pretty gross and the fries too greasy. I don't know how I should rate this because it's probably very personal, but the burgers felt too much... More

The burgers are very big with generous helpings of salad mayo and ketchup if you want. Meal deal is a reasonable 6 euro sixty cents. Salad was large and very nice. Seating as you'd expect from a fast food place. Tip - key your order into the machine and pay there or you'll miss your place in the line.

My boyfriend and I were excited for the chance to go to Hot Horse to try the famous horse burgers. While the concept, the ordering system and the options are good, the end result was rather disappointing. The burger wasn't very tasty and thinner than expected. The buns, salad and sauces are good but the meat was a bit of... More

It was one of the best burgers in Ljubljana. Now, sadly, it's only average. If you never tried a burger with horse meat, it is still totally worth it!
