We had a nice dinner here and the service was quite good -- until after we paid, the server seemed disappointed with his 15% tip and didn't give us another glance. We had to go find where he had hung our coats and get them ourselves, as he seemed very busy folding napkins in another corner of the room. Otherwise... More

Great food had starters, stake and desert. Compliments to the kitchen. Ambient with great potential on the terrace however would not recommend it outside summer months when it gets cooler and you want to sit inside. Service just awful. All together overpriced for the quality and bit disappointed.

We went here to celebrate our father's birthday with dinner. It was simply amazing, and our waiter was too kind. Very nice place and food for Slovenia, one of best in Ljubljana for slow food.

Enjoyed a lovely evening, trying most every appetizer on the menu. Generous portions, very fresh preparation. Must try the horse carpaccio. Excellent Slovenian wine by the glass. Service was superb, our waiter was very patient, educating us about each wine we tried, and recommended pairings of wine and food.

We went here with our hosts from Ljubljana for an informal lunch. Set menu that consisted of a soup, first course, main course with a salad (where we chose between salmon and chicken) and - in the end - dessert came at a price of mere 11 euro per person. Now, you would not consider that very unusual if all... More

it was so good I brought my family here for dinner 2 nights later. More expensive than some other restaurants but still very reasonable compared to London. Excellent local dishes and lovely Slovenian wines. Great service. Thoroughly recommend it.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a concierge of our hotel where we stayed. And it was really a very good choice. There are a big variety of dishes (fish, meat, vegi) with a good selection of local wines. We were a group of 6. Everybody has his/her own food preferences. And everybody likes what he/she ordered.

Good food and very kind staff. The carpaccio and risotto with shripms and saffron were delicious. Only thing that bothered me, were the wine prices...they are extremely high.

Our first dining experience in Ljubljana. Wonderful atmosphere (we sat downstairs in a small room that might have been a wine cellar before it was a restaurant). Our servers were friendly and explained the menu carefully and recommended the house specialties. We enjoyed the local wine, reindeer, beef and veal - all cooked well and delicious. We were so full... More
