The restaurant was close to the place we stayed in Ljubljana, so we just went there for dinner. The atmosphere of the restaurant was nice and the waiter was also very friendly. We ordered the horse meat and a pasta (see the photos). The food was well prepared, but the horse meat was a bit too hard for me. The... More

Last sunday we have a fantastic dinner in this restaurant. We eat pasta with tartufi, some fish and pizza. Everything was very tasty and you can feel it that there is love in their food. I really recommended to stop there if you visit old center in Izola. B&B&T

Very slow service: hungry-very hungry-extremely hungry-not hungry any more-the food arrives. Not bad food taste.

This restaurant seems to be closed all the time - either for private parties or completely or we may have been just really unlucky. The food is modern Italian-Slovenian mix. Our Italian Friends were really happy with the pasta here. The menu changes depending on seasonal ingredients. The service is friendly but a bit casual.

Really nice food with good service. This is a small restaurant,but has a great atmosphere.we were there on a busy friday night,but were really satisfied with food,which is really tasty and non pretentious. The service was great,attentive,our little waitress was really fast and frendly in spite of being alone in a crowded restaurant. All in all,a really nice experience.

Not bad food, just OK. The service is really bad (I am usually quite forgiving in this sector but they are AWFUL, I was thinking of saying sorry for disturbing you, I take the order to the cook myself). All in all nothing special with the food so not a real must. If you have tasted all the excellent Ljubljana... More

I really think we found other staff than some other visitors. The weitress was never smiling, always looking angry or bored, needed a lot of times to givee the password of the wifi (at the end I stood up and asked her again), and she brought us the food without the forks and the knives. Except for that thefl food... More

After hearing only good thing about it we went for a lunch and I was a bit disappointed. Nothing was really wrong, but there was nothing extra that would make me go WOW.

Just recently we had a lunch here with bunch of our friends. Even though the menu is not long it offers verity of foods for different tastes. We had fish, pasta and meat dishes and I must say that all of them were very good. I did miss some starters. They also have a good honey beer from a small... More

This establishment is more of an inn than a restaurant. They obviously concentrate on food, but also (within seconds of arriving) there was a customer deciding to have a play on the piano (no it wasn’t me) and people were just drinking as well as there for meals. The service was swift and polite and the establishment clean and tidy.... More
