It is a very attractive restaurant. Servings are delivered beautifully. However the food is inconsistent. I had a Duck Confit salad. The duck was quite dry. My main course was Sea Bass and excellent.

You might come to an idea, such a restaurant could be a tourist trap. Faaaar away. It is a place where you can find perfect balance between (inside) classy atmosphere, excellent food and good attitude. If you arrive in summer, when tables are also outside, on the street, you can enjoy some of the Old-town flair while dining. I had... More

This wonderful restaurant is situated in the old town. It is below the castle. There is an interesting menu featuring Slovenian dishes and local wines as well. The staff were excellent, polite, helpful and knowledgeable when asked questions about the menu and wines. We had such a good first visit that we went back for each night of our stay... More

We have visited this restaurant during the week of restaurants. The 3 courses menu was good, but nothing special-quite small portions. Service too slowly, they never come and ask if you need something. We ordered another bottle of wine and waited so long that we already finished the meal.

Nothing tasted good. Pasta and duck entrees were disgusting and basically uneaten. We were charged full freight nonetheless. Service was lethargic. Restaurant next door is orders of magnitude better.

Having a one day to stroll through Ljubljana, we opted for this place for lunch, as it was about at the end of the old town, i.e. mid-term before strolling back. The restaurant is located in the small street of the old town, with some tables outside and a bigger space inside, flanked with other looklike restaurants. For lunch, you... More

The food cannot be faulted at this pleasant restaurant, but the service was disappointing.Following the arrival of four gentlemen, our waiter gave his full attention to them and the other customers were largely overlooked. A shame, and this does seem isolated compared to other reviews.
