A friendly welcome, a short wait for a table, which was filled with choosing drinks (my partner had the best, which was delectable - a full bodied honeyed beer with all the right notes: we are beer experts!!) And I had a slightly acidic red wine: two sips and you knew that this wasn't a wine for plonk drinkers, but... More

If you are a vegetarian, skip the restaurant. If you like imaginative and creative gastronomy offer, skip it as well. But if you like potato (compa means potato in one of Slovene dialects), meat and high prices, which are not followed by service quality, then this is a place for you.

Its a small, family like kitchen. Like stepping into someone's home kitchen. The small kitchen makes it clearly difficult to serve so many customers so you will have to wait for your food but the authentic atmosphere makes this bearable. The starter of raw beef and horse cubes was deliciously served with truffle and a sensational home made bread. The... More

Having eaten for many years all over Slovenia and in the capital Ljubljana I can honestly say this was the first time I've really been disappointed in the service. The food was good when it arrived but the service was slow and pretentious. It started badly when our starter of a cheese selection arrived with the comment from the waitress... More

So let's say that we ordered appetizer and the main course (deer and colt back) at 20:15 p.m, we got the appetizer fairly quickly but we waited for the main course till 22:10, I don't know if the chef had to go out and catch the deer befor cooking it.

Once it arrived, the meat was faultless. No doubt it was an excellent meal. However, we waited for it for ever - more than an hour after we finished the first course. Luckily, we were not hungry, otherwise this review would have gone in a different direction. I have no idea what the problem was, could be that the chef... More

What a gem! We were fortunate to get a table without having booked - we were at one end of a larger table - 3 other diners at the other end. Excellent food, perfectly cooked, a friendly and informative waitress, a great atmosphere and no recorded music. We couldn't ask for more.

This little treasure gets packed even on a Tuesday night! I had to wait for a table but whilst at the bar the chef/owner kept little amouse bouche coming. The waiter treated me to a heart warming schnapps and then let me try various wines until we found the right ones. Yes she suggested one for the starter and one... More

Visited for dinner with friend, cold starter ( raw pcs of meat with different dippings aside), for main beef and horse steak, rear and medium rear - all perfectly done. Owner great, staff really friendly. With some glasses of house wine we paid 70€ together.
