The best steak in the World!

This one is a "story to tell"! I've never been to Ljubljana before. We arrived there late and opened Trip Advisor to find the top 10 restaurants. Well, so far so good, but booking a table at 5:30pm for 7/8pm wasn't that easy. I kept phoning and kept getting, "sorry we're full", until I called... read more

Compa is a little place on an unassuming graffiti-covered street not far from the centre. The dining experience it what you would expect of somewhere much grander and more pretentious. Rather than an extensive menu, they only serve the few meat dishes that are at their best at the moment (eg. steak that has been hung for the right amount... More

Super grilled meat. We had also raw meat with different dipping sauces and it was one of the best things i have ever tried. The staff is very friendly. The restaurant is small so you may need to book a table before your arrival.

If you are after a good quality meaty meal I'd recommend this restaurant. All meats are beautifully presented on a platter with delicious grilled seasonal vegetables and delicious, buttery unleavened bread. A good selection of wine is also available.

We had 24h in Ljubliana, and found Compa by chance when our choice of restaurant for the night was closed for holidays. It is quite a small restaurant, we counted only 5 tables for 4/6 people each. The atmosphere created by the music and the lighting is very pleasent. The service was not the fastest, but it was very well... More

Always busy as it is a small place. Make sure you have a reservation but you can always pop in and ask if they might have a seat. The place is only open in the evenings as the owner who is the grill master does this more as a hobby out of love for food and that's exactly what you... More

We went to Compa on recommendation of a local contact. It was our first night in Slovenia...just off the plane and we were hungry and jet-lagged. The server was so lovely and accommodating to us, helping us understand the menu and how the service worked. We ordered a few starters (asparagus and mushroom caps) and the beef. We told her...
