Right in the middle of the castle's courtyard, this restaurant provided one of the best meals on my European trip. They have a nice selection of typical Slovenian food and a wine list, all for very good prices. There's even a menu for two in which you can taste different traditional meals. I personally had the zlikrofi (a kind of... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this place for lunch while about the castle. The staff was friendly and welcoming, the young lady who helped us with the menu was genuine and I appreciated that. Very good wine selection. We sat in the enclosed section of the patio and it provided views of the castle courtyard. The menu was enjoyable with interesting choices using... More

We loved our meal here last year so decided to return and it was even better than before. We loved the pasta, cabbage and bean salad, polenta and stuffed pumpkin flowers. Service is friendly and the tables outside on the square are great. A Saturday plus is watching the parade of weddings as the castle is a popular wedding location.

We visited Gostilna na gradu in early May 2014. It is located on the castle so do not forget to check out the view from the tower first. The food was amazing, the service quick and very polite, and the prices lower than average for such a gourmet place. We tasted their house wine which was very good and unbelievably... More

It was a week of restaurants soo we decided to visit the Inn at Ljubljana Castle. The location is very attractive, with parking and view of the Ljubljana. Even the restaurant is in a beautiful castle ambience with a modern touch. The staff is friendly and professional. I chose the fish menu with Fonda's branzini which was excellent. Highly recommend!... More

I have been regularly to this restaurant and I am always served well, the food is excellent and the choice of wines (of course Slovenian) good. If the weather is fine the vistas from the caste hill are great, both during the day and during the night. Open Sunday which is a bonus in Ljubljana .

We had a very nice buffet meal around 2 pm here after touring the castle. I am not sure if it is always a buffet or if you can also order off a menu, but I was led to believe that we were able to sample a special holiday buffet of Slovenian specialties. there were four possible courses. Soup, salad... More

Not too many castles atop our cities and towns in North America, so it was nice to experience the good food and better service atop here. Perhaps go early--it gets full and LOUD pretty quickly. Before or after the meal you will enjoy the view over Ljubliana here. It is worth the time. The funicular is fun, and the overall... More

The restaurant is passionate about its local food and drink and has every right to be, wonderful flavours, seasonal foods and friendly helpful service with a smile! Just a shame the furnicular finished before we did so we had to walk back down in the dark. The fish and loin of veal were the stars amongst our group.

We had a lunch on a cloudy Saturday with my two daughters. The waitress was very friendly and made sure we got our food quickly. The food was nice, maybe just a tad too salty. We all reccomend great home made juice made from mint. One minus: the restaurant was too cold to be comfortable.
