Sat down to the terrace on a rainy and quiet day and got to our surprise the best risottos of our entire trip. Service was friendly and price reasonable. Worth going!

Great location Great service Very inventive tastes and presentation. Great local wine list. I could never expect better. Probably the best gourmet food in the old town. Keep it up guys... Bravo

We loved this restaurant but there were a couple of minor negatives. The service was spot on. Can't fault it. They served us initially with an amuse bouche of tomato and pesto. I was a bit perturbed to find out that they had run out of the soup of the day by 7.30 pm, which is surprising in a place... More

We had a late evening dinner at this restaurant. It was a beautiful warm summer evening and sitting out in the street was perfect. The service was very friendly and they served us some extra dishes to start with and in between the dishes. Unfortunately, despite this beautiful setting and the good service we left the restaurant somewhat disappointed. The... More

We selected this restaurant after reading the reviews in Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. The was probably the second best restaurant we experienced on a trip that included Vienna, Bratislava, Graz, Ljubljana and Trieste. Since in all the cities we stayed on their "old town" section the we were able to walk to most of the restaurants. The service and... More

We had a great meal here during our stay in Ljubljana. The decor was stylish and warm. I really enjoyed the asparagus tempura with goat cheese. Very creative. Also had seared foie gras. Both the truffle risotto with grilled scallop and truffle pasta with pancetta were outstanding. Service was excellent. Some extra treats were offered like an excellent amuse of... More

The food cooked at this place is very good, especially the bread. First time in my life I tried corn soup and was very delicious. We were inside ( in summer, they have tables on the street as well), but were seated close to the door and as it was constantly opening and closing, we were cold. The service was... More

The starter (asparagus tempura with goats cheese sauce) was really good. The main course, veal cutlet with honey and mustard seed sauce was just OK. The sauce was just missing a little something. The meat was perfectly cooked, it was just the sauce that let it down a little bit. The dessert, chocolate souffle with a mint cream sauce, was... More

After looking the reviews of this restaurant, we decided to save it for special occasion. And we were not disappointing. On the contrary! We were delighted! We went there on a saturday evening, restaurant was full but not crowded. The atmosphere was very nice, lights slightly dimmed. Waiters were professionally friendly (this is a perfect combination for us), gave us... More

The restaurant is situated in the middle of the city, very close to the river. The layout of the restaurant makes it suitable for dinner with colleagues, friends or couples (I was there with colleagues). Service was excellent, friendly staff who made excellent wine recommendations (we actually had a local white wine which was great). Food was also very good... More
