Nice traditional restaurant with serbian food

Charming place to eat with a great eastern European atmosphere. Though communication with the waiter was a little difficult - I asked if he could speak English and he responded that he could speak German. I continued speaking to him in German, not sure if he understood. He ended up bringing me two... read more

Though trying all of them I keep returning to Dubočica, even if sometimes I need to make a few... More

With family and friend I visited Dubocica early afternoon. Restaurant is old but nice, with beautiful garden under the old big trees. Because of cold weather we took table inside, in a warm, homely atmosphere. Food was grilled good and all together was much better than last few times.

The atmosphere looks at first dreamy, an old restaurant true to it's time when it was build (i guess circa 30 years ago) under autumn Aesculus. Well when you look into detail, it was not, it had a stank of old uncared for flowers on one side and of piss on the other side. The staff was nice. We went... More

I've never seen anyone but locals at this gostilna, but it has become our ritual to take lunch here while we are in Ljubljana. Although the indoors is cozy, the outdoor garden under the trees but within site of the grill is a good place to while away a summer day. Excellent food! We particularly recommend the gibanica (cheese-filo pie)... More

Went to Dubocica this Saturday with kids before our flight back home; we have had a dissapointing meal in what used to be a descent Balkan grilled food restaurant. Mediocre meat, old bread, cold beans, lukewarm lamb and so on. All in all not worth half the money spent, especially as compared with a meal few days before at Cad,... More

Located a bit far far from the center, but definitely worth a visit. Super professional staff, great great serbian food, and nic ambiance. The garden is quiet pretty too and it´s a great place to bring friends or for a business dinner. i will definitely come back.
