The amuse bouche was a tasty trio of pork crackling (diced very small, and served hot), a herby smooth cottage cheese which tasted exceptionally fresh, and a... read more

Located right in the middle of the medieval castle's courtyard, they insist on serving local specialties such as deer, calf liver, Slovenian truffles, local brews .... Food was great, setting is ideal to let kids wander around in-between dishes, service was good and not slow despite the Sunday lunch affluence. And the bill was surprisingly low for a meal of...

This restaurant is located in the Ljubljana castle, so I was thinking it would be very expensive, but the Menu let me know that it in fact is not. The main courses start from 8,5 € and the portions are big. The guests also became a free of charge appetiser, there was a live band playing and the service was... More

And exactly that it is - serving decent Slovenian food for Tourists at a nice location. Prices are decent and the food is acceptable - nothing special but decent and good value for money. Not comparable with Strelec where you get for a few bucks more excellent food, but still decent.

Delicious food in a stunning, romantic location, with excellent, friendly service. We couldn't believe what good value it was - four courses, and a huge bottle of red wine, for the equivalent of less than £20 each.

If you want to have a nice lunch or dinner at a nice place this is a good one, especially if you decide to have it outside. The food is good, mainly typical Slovene and home made, wich make sit something special. Service very nice.
