I have enjoyed eating at this place on one night each in the last three years. Good atmosphere, very good food, good and friendly service. Very popular so best to reserve a table, particularly if you want to eat in the courtyard. One would expect to pay more for the good quality of the food. However they will offer you... More

The service was impeccable at this quaint restaurant, matched only by the divine food that was served. A must try is the region specialty - horse meat accompanied by one of the country's excellent wines. The home made spinach gnocchi with monk fish, honey mushrooms and truffle just melts in the mouth. Medium herbed lamb in cognac was served alongside... More

We arrived quite late and the waitress asked the chef if we could still be served. Unfortunately this was not possibble anymore and she suggested to come back the next day. When we told her that would not be possible, as it was our last evening in the city, she immediatly returned to the chef, who then asked her to... More

This place was a great find. It is more home cooking than pretentious, but every course was good. The mushroom gnocchi and the horse with truffles were both divine. Three courses and wine for two for under €100. Our waiter was excellent, too, recommending food and wine to our tastes in perfect English.

I checked TA before and glad I chose Spajza for dinner. Courtyard seating is limited, better to make a reservation. Friendly, professional, multilingual staff. The food was excellent. I had duck breast with figs and vegetables. Everything was to the point. Cover charge (i.e. silverware, usually fabric napkins, etc.) is widely common in better restaurants in Slovenia and Croatia. Prices... More

This restaurant is situated Gornji Trg almost opposite the Church of St Florian. It is a very attractive and quiet part of the city and when we were walking in the area on a Sunday,we never dreamt for a moment that we ought to make a reservation for a meal later that evening. Consequently,when we turned up and were told... More

My wife and I just happened to stumble into Spajza. From the outside it looks nothing special, however it has a lovely outdoor courtyard. The food was very good and I see some people say it is very expensive but 20/25 Euro for a T Bone Steak? That seems a fair price to me. The staff were pleasant. The desserts... More

This place was a real treat - local food in gourmet preparations, dedication to quality and presentation, very high level of service. My mother-in-law loved the venison salami and the waiter called to find out where she could purchase it and went out of his way to help her get some. The rooms are all cozy and rustic and very...

We had a wonderful meal at Spajza and felt that it reflected very good value. Of course one can find much cheaper meals but our tasting menu was particularly elegant and we also were able to taste local wines that are completely unavailable in Australia. The waiter was extremely informative and we felt the atmosphere was friendly, fun and lively.... More

The Spajza ticks most of the boxes, lovely décor, good atmosphere, very good food, but it is so expensive for what you get. There was also an air of pretentiousness exuded by the staff who served us which irked even more. No, there are far better value for money restaurants located in the heart of the town, restaurants which will... More
