Superb meal

This restaurant has an interesting menu with some Slovenian dishes. The staff know the menu and can help if necessary which was good as I had lost my glasses! Had dumplings in mushroom sauce followed by octopus - both very tasty. Finished with Apple and poppyseed cake! Would come back to Ljubljana... read more

This restaurant has an interesting menu with some Slovenian dishes. The staff know the menu and can help if necessary which was good as I had lost my glasses! Had dumplings in mushroom sauce followed by octopus - both very tasty. Finished with Apple and poppyseed cake! Would come back to Ljubljana just to eat here,

Beautiful and really tasteful food in great location. Little terrace on the street is the best place to try various dishes this restaurant offers. Grilled palenta with smoked cheese and rocket is a must try! Absolutely fabulous! :)

Given that there're many dining options around the hotel where I'm staying, I was happy to have decided to have my last dinner in Julija before leaving Ljubljana tomorrow morning. The cauliflower soup and the apple strudel with vanilla ice-cream were decent enough. The veal fillet with truffled purée and asparagus was excellent. The meat was tender and cooked to... More

I visit Slovenia a few times a year on business, staying in the downtown area and Julija has become one of my favorite restaurants. Although in a touristy part of the old-town, the food is authentic and delicious. Staff is attentive and friendly. Worth a visit if you're in Ljubljana.

We had dinner at Julija on a wintery evening in March and it was a nice experience. Such a cozy & comfortable ambiance! The decor is very eclectic and the acoustics are excellent. Our server (Katia) was extremely kind to us and made sure everything was perfect, especially since we had a small dog with us. For antipasti my husband... More

I must thank my tour guide for recommending Julija to me. It is a fantastic little restaurant situated in the heart of Ljubljana that serves very traditional Slovenian food..not too mention yummy too! I especially loved the cheese dumplings and the grilled pork shank that was cooked to perfection. Food is served very quickly, service is top-notch and the desserts... More

In the heart of the historical district, this restaurant has good food, with Slovenian dishes and more. Service was good. On the whole, it was good value for money. I would go back.

I visited the restaurant with my boyfriend after having read good reviews online. I am a pretty strict vegetarian and the restaurant was really accommodating: although there wasn't a huge choice on the menu the waitress made no issue and said the chef would make up something for me. The food itself was really good (my boyfriend had a meat... More

It is alway a good sign to see a lot of people eating in one place, We came Friday evening and had a lot of luck as there were only two or three small tables available. The food is really very good, tasty and fresh. It is more international cuisine. you can find also good wines here. We liked very... More

Nice restaurant with very good food. Friendly staff but propose you the most expensive vine at the beginning. A little bit crowded and in my opinion mostly oriented toward tourists, not locals, so it is visible in the menu. But maybe I'm wrong?
