Nice for fish dishes

Nice restaurant, great fish market, and good selection of fresh fish. I recommend it, worth trying for fish food lovers.

Shared the leg of lamb, rabbit ragu pasta and then a souffle for dinner. Everything was delicious and the lamb was done to perfection. Our waiter was exceptionally friendly gentleman. The spirit to cap the meal was an added bonus.

Because I was in the city for only a day, I wanted to try traditional Slovenian food. I noticed this restaurant at the base of the funicular up to the castle. I stopped in on the early side and got a table without any delay. I didn't make it to the regular menu because several items on the specials sheet... More

We were recommended and this restaurant is superb. Located by the funicular in Ljubjana it is also opposite the market. Great food/choices / wine too. All staff and chef are brilliant. Man size portions and delightful interior/atmosphere. Try it!

I have to say that I am very dissapointed with this restaurant. We went in expecting good food, good ambient, nice staff. But nothing from this. We took with us children aged 6,8,13 and I have to say that this restaurant does not offer any children menues. They don't offer 1/2 portions of meals. They can make you 1/2 portion... More

A nice place to visit for a romantic dinner or business lunch / dinner. Their food selection is broad, offering a lot from local cuisine. Their beef steak is tender and delicious. They will prepare it in different styles for you. I chose beef steak with egg and mushrooms and it was among the best ones I ever tried. I... More

We stumbled upon this place during our short stay in Ljubljana and are super grateful we did.. Attentive and helpful staff, outstanding food and wine, and a warm candlelit atmosphere. Very reasonably priced for the standard of the restaurant. We hope to be back.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming, spoke english and went through the menu with me with no problems. I got a pasta to begin, tasted great, but the pasta was overcooked so kept on falling apart whenever i went to grab one. The main dish was perfect, lamb shank with potatoes, and the dessert was overkill already i was... More

The location is fine, at the centre, just next to the market. But the food is what's worth visiting this place for! I've tried a few different meals so far: pasta with losos, Kranjska klobasa, dunajski zrezer, zelenjavni zrezek... delicious! The only negative thing might be the prizes, liiiitle more expensive than regular.

I was absolutely disappointed with my meal and the waiter was so rude. This place is a trap for tourists. There are much better restaurants in town.
