This dining experience deserves to be savoured, so don't come here if you're in a hurry! Our dining experience took around 2.5 hours but was worth every minute. A small restaurant in the heart of Ljubljana, make sure to come here at least once during your trip! We had the beef fillet, beef rump (or back as they call it)... More

The food is great. Just excellent meat served delightfully. The wine was delicious and complemented the food perfectly. The setting is great - you have your table for the evening, so you can take as long as you like to enjoy your meal - not being rushed out of the door for the next sitting. I enjoyed Ljubljana a lot...... More

Been there with business partner from UK - 4 persons. We've had 3 starters - can not decide which one was better: grilled asparagus with young goat cheese, garlic and olive oil, grilled mushrooms and cubes of raw meat with different toppings (black garlic - fermented, anchovy, juzu paste, caper) and dried beef tail-shredded. Than we've had different pieces of... More

I read a lot about Compa as beeing one of the finest in Ljubljana, so yesterday it was a spontaneous and late decision to visit it. Even though we were the last costumers and they were about to close they took us in and made a meal for us (usually you need to reserve at least 3 days prior they... More

Amazing grilled meats and vegetables. They take excellent products and don't do too much to them - they just bring the best out of local, seasonal produce. Time stopped when we entered this lovely small place. The staff was incredibly friendly and it felt like they truely love their jobs. The waitress gave very good recommendations, even regarding quantities (usually... More

Really tasty food and very nice staff. I love the place and will visit next time in Ljubljana. Ate horsemeat for the very first time and I liked it.

This tiny little place inconspicuously hidden away in an off street, just feet away from the main promenade, is something you'll be sharing with your friends travelling to Ljubljana over and over. Beautiful, friendly hosts, cozy atmosphere and, above all, the best meat you can have in Ljubljana is a fairytale on its own. Make sure you try the beef... More

Compa is one of the best restaurants for meat in town. They offer vegetables too, but dont go there if you are not a meat lover. Very nice owner/chef who always visits his guest at the tables. Beef carpatio is a must!
