Nice restaurant with a first-class attendance. Today 24/5/15 I tasted duck breast, and it was delicious. In jubljana old town, I recommend it for lunch or dinner.

Throughout our eight days in Slovenia this was by far our most expensive meal, and, while well prepared, not the most delicious. In a nice secluded location off the main tourist strip in old town, however. Pros: + pretty good food + fairly unique dishes + beautiful restaurant Cons: - difficult to get a table for various reasons: -- none... More

A friend from Australia recommended this restaurant to us & we're very glad they did. We enjoyed it so much that we went two nights in a row. It offers traditional Slovenic dishes but served with a modern twist. The food is delicious, beautifully presented & there are plenty of choices - meat, seafood & vegetarian. Service is impeccable &... More

Great service and some good food at dinner in this traditional restaurant. We enjoyed the courtyard ambiance and some delicious risotto. Smoked trout was rather riddled bones so we swapped and she enjoyed the second half of the risotto. Mains were good but rabbit quite chewy. Staff were charming and overall a most pleasant evening.

This restauarant was recommended by our hotel. We got to the restaurant early and we were one of the only ones in the place. By the time we left the place was full and we understood why everyone was coming; great service, and food.

We six dined handsomely in this city-centre restaurant which is true to its advertised "typical Slovenian food." The service is thoroughly professional and the restaurant has a number of rooms so that you never feel overwhelmed. I selected a main course which, when it came, I could only eat a few mouthfuls of. There was absolutely nothing wrong with it... More

Good lunch at this top rated restaurant. They had very affordable prix fixe lunch with three courses for under $12. Wine by the glass small but also very inexpensive. Almost empty at 1pm on a Thursday
