Actually I want to give Gostilna na Gradu 3.5 stars. I'd dinner at GNG on my first day of my trip to Ljubljana. After some mixed reviews on the restaurant, I didn't expect much. However, my dinner turned out to be quite a good experience. I ordered a tasting menu with 6 courses at 42.2 euros. The price was very... More

This restaurant is closely the unique good reason to visit the Ljubljana Castle. Waiters are polite and all speak english. The food is tasty and price is fair.

Cold food. Slow service. Low quality ingredients. Tipical tourist trap. Regarding prices better to avoid and visit Restauracija Strelec on the Castle! Much better.

The main reason that I did not give this place 5 stars was because it felt very much like a tourist trap. Sitting in the castle was fantastic, the food was very tasty and inventive (the pumpkin blossoms? Wow), and we weren't really disappointed. However, the service and the prices make you think that you are just the next customer... More

Very nice place and very good cuisine. If you go up by walking, be sure you choose the right way as not all roads are lighted. Amazing view over the city from the top of the castle hill. Food is excellent! Very reasonable prices. Good choice of local wines.

Our friends told us that this restaurant was a must-do in Slovenia and they were right. The food was absolutely top-notch and we loved the historic, romantic and now trendy castle setting, especially at night. Go here for date night or a fun dinner with friends. Highly recommend!
