Fabulous!

Great place for a special occasion. A little pricey but worth the expense! Food was delicious! Service was attentive and pleasant!

Great place for a special occasion. A little pricey but worth the expense! Food was delicious! Service was attentive and pleasant! Everyone speaks English which is always helpful visiting from another country. Ps washrooms are disguised behind "secret doors" so you'll need help finding them! ;). Must go and enjoy yourselves!

This was one of the best meals we had passing through Bosnia,Slovenia,and Italy. The Istrian pasta with truffles was delicious as well as the appetizers and deserts.

This is a really good restaurant in the heart of the town. We managed to sit outside. The service was excellent and the food was really good. The wine was excellent too. We have no hesitation in recommending this place. Not too pricey either.

We dined here after walking past and looking inside - and we were more than pleased with both the food and the service. Two of our party had the taster menu at 40 euros for four courses - beautiful! The green pepper steak was cooked to perfection and the sea bass was also cooked really well, with a crispy finish... More

Fabulous food and service - so good that we went back a second time. The asparagus starter was a dream as were the prawns with truffle mash. We also loved the lamb, classic beef steak, sea bass and duck. Also fantastic value.

The food here is absolutely lovely, and very classy, but affordable. The waiter was very knowledgable and gave us terrific service throughout the evening. We were all very happy with our dishes, and I strongly recommend dinner here when you visit Ljubljana.

It appears as a top quality restaurant in the nicest setting of the old town. It was certainly not bad, but there were couple of problems that should not be there at such level. The dishes were nicely decorated (even little exaggerated), but the raw materials were not the best. These two elements combined give a character of pretense instead... More
