Our party of four had a very early dinner here last night; we were all quite jet lagged. I am happy to say it was a great start to our trip! The atmosphere is lovely, service outstanding including the food and wine recommendations and the food -- from starters to desserts -- was terrific. We especially enjoyed dishes made with... More

Although it has a cottagey look and feel the food is fine dining and the menu includes some unusual items (vegetarians look away now) like goat pate, horse carpaccio, rabbit etc. We had the meat menu and enjoyed every aspect.

I have been going to Špajza a lot of years and the food is just excellent. This would not be your typical Slovenian as it is, but Slovenian with a modern twist. It is much much better choice if you want to have some authentic yummy food. Not as at some restaurants recommended by guides (check out my other reviews... More

Fantastic restaurant. Quite innovative cuisine with a good selection of local wines. The service was outstanding; our waiter, Alex, couldn't do enough to help without being obtrusive. We ended up going back a second time at the end of our trip. The homemade spinach gnocchi with truffles and the zlikroft were both perfect. I can't recommend this place highly enough,... More

My partner and I visited Spajza shortly after arriving in Ljubljana. We had viewed the restaurant on tripadvisor and accordingly had high expectations, which were not disappointed. The restaurant itself is quaint and cosy, dotted with an array of Slovenian antiques and old bottles of wine. We went for the four-course Meat tasting menu, which included goat-liver pate, asparagus souffle,... More

Based on a Lonely Planet review we indulged ourselves at Spajza. We had a slightly over seasoned cuttlefish black risotto and courgette stuffed with cheese and very flavourful mushrooms to start. Mains consisted of duck breast with figs and several langoustines (shrimp on the menu). Expect a messy wrestling match but appropriate accoutrements, finger bowl and spare serviette. The quality...

We first tried to get a meal at lunchtime but, in spite of having tables available were turned away as they had a large group in the restaurant and "could not cope with any more clients". In spite of this, we booked for the evening, and enjoyed a really delicious meal washed down with superb local wine. The service was... More

No doubt: the restaurant offers a special setting, consisting of 4 to 5 independent small dining rooms. The food, however is neither typically local nor international top notch cuisine. Personally, we preferred the many winebars with excellent wine and good food for a fraction of the money.

This place was chosen by my friend who trusts that Spajza offers the best possible octopus carpaccio in Slovenia. In spite, we finally have chosen a beef tatar for two. Although I ate beef tartar in several countries outside Hungary this was something different. Very nice clean minced meat with cucumber and pepperonis. The restaurant has several specialities, among them,... More

We had the fish degustation menu and it was surprising and excellent. Not cheap by Slovenian standards but great value for money anyway. We paid 130 € for 2 5 course menu's + all the trimmings.
