Visited here to celebrate a special occasion. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and staff were attentive. We found the food and drinks to be nice, but expensive for Ljubljana.

I feel a bit bad giving this restaurant average rating - the décor was cute and cosy, the service excellent but I really wasn't that impressed with the food. Having read so many fantastic reviews I was really excited to get here. I had the ink risotto with cuttlefish to start with but the risotto was quite bland and the... More

Place in a corner of medieval Ljubljana with some small rooms and fine food. Best thing in this restaurant is atmosphere. Don’t try to find some special food. Stay on the side of local dishes of our grannies.

I'm all for experimentation in gastronomic efforts, but in the end you must trust the chef will provide a somewhat edible product. Alas, Spajza you failed me: My scallops and cheese concoction lacked an important ingredient--taste. Only salt and pepper brought them out of their tasteless stupor. I should have trusted my instincts on the venison with spicy chocolate sauce... More

Well, frankly, reading the reviews I was expecting more. Not that food and service are not good, it is just not great. I had steak my sister had horse steak. Atmosphere is nice if you are not sitting in the cellar. Not impressed, sorry.

Nicely decorated restaurant. Meat was very good (beef and horse steak) but ridiculously little amount of vegetables on the plate. We asked if they had sparkling wine and they advised a Slovenian type of prosecco. When the bill came, they charged 45€ for it, when I'm sure it would cost only 6-8€ if we had bought it in the supermarket.... More

The meal was absolutely fantastic. I had the tartufo pasta (truffle pasta) and steak. I also tried Slovenian wine which was also very good. The wait staff were pleasant & the restaurant itself was very cute and simple with a country restaurant vibe.
