Spajza is located in the old town. The place was charming with good ambience and the service was excellent. When it came to the most important thing, i.e. the food, I'd mixed feelings.The wild garlic soup and the scallop were good. However, the spinach gnocchi with monkfish, honey mushroom and truffles was just average. Not that Spajza was bad. However,... More

This restaurant is highly rated in Ljubljana. I hesitated between Good and Very Good. On the Very Good side, service was very attentive and thoughtful. The waiter spoke very good English and was more than happy to discuss what I should try. Also very good was his selection of Slovenian wines by the glass. Good, however, was the food I... More

Very tasty food, friendly waiter, and just no people at Sunday evening. To be honest, it should be denoted with $$ not $ - prices are higher than low but the food deserves its price.

One of the best places to eat in Ljubljana weather you are looking for fish or meat dishes. Nice wine selection too. Very nice backdoor garden for spring and summer outdoor meals. Definitely recommended!

This is where you take someone if you wanted to show them "the best" of a city. You'll walk into this restaurant, which otherwise wouldn't know is there and you'll see photos of A list celebrities on the wall. But it is anything but pretentious. This is the real deal. This is where those who write recipe books go to... More

I consider myself a "foodie" and rate cities by the quality of the restaurants. I had dinner here 2 nights in a row - something I rarely do. The food is very tasty. Wonderful ingredients, obviously talented kitchen staff and the serving staff are clearly passionate about what they do. I'd absolutely recommend this place to you!
