Good food and quick

We were going to go to another restaurant but there was too long of a wait and we were tired so we just wanted something to eat. We saw that Hot Horse was open so we went there. The sandwiches are quite large. For a "fast food" place it was good and met our need.

When we knew we were going to Ljubljana, we read all about Hot Horse and wanted to try it. Horse meat isn't readily available in America, unless it's in recalled frozen lasagna from Aldi, so as burger fanatics, we wanted to give Hot Horse a try. Hot Horse is easily found in Tivoli Park, right across the street from the... More

Good service and one of a very few places you can eat something in the middle of the night in Ljubljana.

After reading the Lonely planet, we headed to the hot horse after our walk in the park. Although we like horse meat, this burger we ordered had nothing to do with the soft, tender and tasty flavours of horse meat. Instead you get a soft bread filled with lifeless letuce and tomato and a burger which taste just bad. The... More

I had heard about this place from Rick Steve and we were in the Tivoli park. It is very modern with a touch screen kiosk to order right down to the condiments and drinks. There are other things on the menu besides horse burgers, like salads and wraps. Prices are good and the portions are generous.

Keep things in perspective. Not fine dining, but if you are like a lot of travelers who like to try some of the things the locals eat or talk about, it's a do not miss. You can easily spend 4x more money for a horse steak at a fine restaurant, but if you just want to explore a little like... More

Hot Horse used to be great, and when you hear that from a citizen of Ljubljana which is really into hamburgers, then you are supposed to believe him. Ordering it is really simple and somewhat fun - you order through a touch-screen, where you choose all your toppings and drinks ... The price is somewhat reasonable for the size you... More

After researching places to eat in Ljubljana this place kept on cropping up - so I decided to give it a shot. I'd already tried Horse anyway and love it, so was expecting good things. It's a bit of a walk away, through the park - but it's near the Union brewery, so we were off that way anyway. You... More

Dry bread, tasteless meat, oversalted chips. Horrible. Veggie burger is just bread with salad. Not worth wasting your meal here.

I heard a lot of people raving about this place and decided to give it a try. I was very dissapointed as the burger was just the ordinary one you can get at every Albanian kiosque in Slovenia for 3€. The patty was thin and overcooked; it had been fryed in advance and then lying in some sort of container... More
