This is an excellent restaurant in Liubljana's center! It is very popular, so you must make a reservation for dinner. (Although it is popular, the restaurant does not seem too crowded or uncomfortable. The tables are arranged in such a way that every party has an intimate setting. The menu selection is varied, and provides many options that are authentic... More

We missed the lake bled cream cake and were able to grab it here before heading home... So delicious! Like most if lublianja, they serve a great house wine. It is best to have a reservation at night. We saw several people get turned away.

Selected this on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews. The restaurant serves top quality local dishes in a really nice environment. Service was efficient and pleasant. There is a good wine list of local Slovenian wines and indeed international ones also, but the local wines are good. The place was obviously very popular as we had to queue in the rain... More

Make sure you make a reservation for Julija's. On the night we visited, many people were turned away. The food was delicious. While we didn't eat it, we saw the squid meal served elsewhere and it looked amazing. Our tagliatelle and veal dishes were extremely tasty followed by delicious creme brûlée and strudel. There was a certain local charm combined... More

This restaurant was recommended by our guidebook and the meal did not disappoint. We arrived approximately 8PM and were told there would be a 30 minute wait which was fine and gave us a few minutes to stroll around the area. My beef dinner was cooked to perfection and we enjoyed the ambiance.

The Restaurant is a pleasant possibility to try typical Slowenian dishes. I had a very tasteful plate of some type of "knoedel"which was in fact some type of stuffed pasta with funghi porcini. The Restaurant has a nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Portions could be a bit bigger compared to the price.

Took my Indian business partners from Kuwait to taste real Slovenian food. It was a bit crowded due to the fact it was last August weekend. So we waited for few minutes to get the table. We let them (waiters ) order dishes for us and they got it really right. Everything was really nice. Good Slovenian pasta, wonderful young... More

Just one block from the river, in one of the city's most vibrant areas, we discovered this gem of a restaurant. Julija features an extensive variety of Slovenian dishes. I tried the gnocchi in cream sauce and this dish did not disappoint. My husband had the beef goulash, served with tender beef in a generous sauce, and grilled triangles of... More
