Another good meal

We visit this restaurant every time we are in Ljubljana - it's the more informal of the 2 restaurants at the castle. While the stuffed zucchini blossoms are still excellent, we did not enjoy the seasonal pasta selections as much as ones offered in previous years. House white wine is fresh and... read more

While the stuffed zucchini blossoms are still excellent, we did not enjoy the seasonal pasta selections as much as ones offered in previous years. House white wine is fresh and crisp.

After reading very positive reviews I've decided to give it a try for a business dinner. Good food reviews and ideal ambient to take out visitors to Ljubljana seemed like ideal combination. However, service is not at the expected level and they seemed very reluctant. Although there was a number of staff around we felt abandoned. It started by not... More

the location already is wonderful, as the restaurant is situated in the yard of the Ljubljana castle. the restaurant itself is beautiful as well. The food was delicious - typical products and dishes, all we had was just great. the service was maybe a bit slow at times, but then the place was full with guests and the waiters were... More

There is nothing I can fault this establishment for. The food was superb, the service was excellent. The menu has enough variety without overwhelming the customer with too much to choose from. Our waitress was extremely friendly and had perfect knowledge of each item on the menu. More importantly, she was extremely patient, my wife is not the most decisive... More

We were at the castle and hungry, and we felt fortunate to find such a tasty restaurant on the castle grounds. The prices were fairly comparable to the restaurants in the old town, and the service was great. I had the venison with polenta, which was quite delicious, and my friend ordered the fried chicken, which was more like chicken... More

We went here based upon the review in Rick Steves... We we're not disappointed. We did the five course tasting menu, which was fantastic. The sommelier suggested a very nice Slovenian wine to accompany the dinner. The ambiance of dining in the castle grounds was great. I highly recommend this restaurant for a nice dinner.

First they bring you a trio of spreads with bread--forget the butter and go for the liver pate--it does wonders inside your mouth! I had the sea bass and it was a beautiful presentation as well as a delight with the potato purée, peas and a hint of mint. The waiter's wine recommendation was great. Highly recommended!

This restaurant had been a staple in my best-of ever since it opened. The menu is changed several times per year to include all the seasonal ingredients, but always offers Slovenian food with a modern twist. The staff is friendly and the prices are very reasonable considering the location.

We almost missed this place because we assumed its location in the castle meant it would be a bog standard tourist cafe. But we happened to flick through the Lonely Planet and see it was highly recommended. Lovely Slovenian food, both traditional and with a twist, beautifully cooked and presented.

Gostilna na gradu is nice restaurant with perfect location. Wery nice is too sit on the terrace and enjoy the nice view. I visited this place for lunch and took one of a daily menu, which is changing daily. This is a good decicion, since the menu is different every day, fresly cooked and not too expensive.
