Good value and delicious food. Helpful staff who did not rush us. Excellent 'dumplings' sorry cannot remember the Slovenian words! We were there on a weeknight without booking. Our hotel receptionist recommended it and we were not disappointed

Loved it so much we went twice on our 5 days in Slovenia. Octopus was excellent, fresh, tender. Homemade pasta also delicious. Our server was very helpful, paired wines perfectly with our dishes. Interior is so cozy and inviting! Tables are close together, but that was the best part, as you can see what delicious things others have ordered, and... More

this is one of best restaurants in Ljubljana, where you will eat slovenian cuisine on high level. Prices are reasonable for EU standards, but quality is superb. You have to try it - and than send a rewiev to others.

Wonderful. The location is perfect. Seating inside is in front by the bar, or in cozy small rooms towards the rear. Service was professional and friendly -- our waiter was Gregor. I had broiled octopus, and my wife had a fish dish, all cooked and served perfectly. The wine recommendation was perfect. Prices are fine. I wish that I could... More

We have spent one day in Ljuljana during our holidays in December and after the long walk through the old town, we choose this restaurant. It was full of people, but waiters were very friendly and enlisted us in the book for lunch, suggesting that we return in 30 minutes. Indeed, half an hour later, we were seated (got very... More

Thank you Boris! Our first meal in Slovenia is unforgettable. The traditional cuisine is expertly prepared and lovingly served, with good recommendations from wine to dessert. The location is charming and easy to find. Excellent value for money. We recommend it highly.

This is the place where I had my first memorable meal in Ljubljana. This place just stood out to me when my stomach was growling. The deal was sealed when I saw that they were offering veal and truffles and this delicious sauce. Service was excellent I was happily greeted and seated quickly. I even noticed a couple walk in...

The restaurant is really nice, but for the price we've paid, we had expected more . Since we visited the restaurant several times, we were unpleasantly surprised by how badly they prepared our meal. Tuna steak was completely dried out, even though we ordered to be almost raw. That we are not talking about the lasagna. It was made with... More
