Very good food. It is worth a visit but do not have big expectations. You can still find better restaurant in city centre but there aren't many of them.

The best choice in Ljubljana if you like mediterranean food. Everything have such a pure taste, probably due to fresh local ingredients. They also offer diverse selection of slovenian wines. Been here several times and was never disappointed.

Ljubljana has a number of very good restaurants in close proximity, mainly owing to its relatively compact size, so initially it wasn't an easy decision to give Spajza a try even though we'd read favourable reviews. We visited on a Sunday evening so it was perhaps a little quieter than usual but soon filled up. Service was excellent, the team... More

Petra, the owner, was very helpful, smiling and pleasant as the man... More

Really nice restaurant with different small dining rooms throughout.Good menu to choose from and well stocked wine list. I had local smoked trout followed by a delicious pasta with truffles and my great friendly waiter- Andre- persuaded me to try the new dessert that had just been perfected that day- a delicious poached pear dish. Highly recommended

We were looking for a place to have something tasty for lunch with our little doughter and found this restaurant on trip advisor. And it was really like that, really tasty food, cosy atmosphere and especially kind service. Price range is not as indicated on trip advisor, but we don't regret it. :)

This is a very homey and friendly restaurant at the bottom of the castle hill. I had a wonderful mushroom soup followed by a pasta in truffle sauce. My wife had scallops (nicely presented but a bit fishy) and duck breast in cognac sauce and figs. Most unusual. The dessert was outstanding -- a Chocolate Egg -- lavender ice cream... More
