Located on a quiet corner off the main street in Ljubljana's Old Town, Julija Restaurant is all rustic charm - with large vases of flowers, baroque mirrors, blue-plaid tablecloths and a delightfully warm and friendly staff. Al fresco dining is available on a stretch of cobblestone street in front of the restaurant. Julija serves native Slovenian dishes: Štruklji, a kind... More

The concierge at out hotel recommended a quaint little restaurant that was "very good" and just happened to be around the corner. I ordered the "Steak Julija" with Štruklji (traditional Slovenian cheese dumpling). What arrived at my table was the most perfect steak I have ever eaten. It was covered generously in shaved truffles and a savory sauce and cooked... More

Very competent restaurant with lovely outdoor location and friendly staff. Fish was very fresh and well presented. I agree with other reviewers that the prices are on the high side, especially for wine.

We have been to Julija three or four times over the past two years, and on our last visit the food I ordered was so unappealing I felt I needed to update the review. Other diners were more pleased wtih what they ordered. This time I ordered the broccoli soup, It was tasteless. For an entree, I had pasta with... More

My wife and I ate here our first night I Ljubljana and really enjoyed our meal. The restaurant is located on a street in the old town, in a beautiful setting. My wife had the goulash and I had the veal. Both were delicious. The service was good and the house wine very good. Highly recommended.

Held a business evening meal here, the food was good but the choice of wine we made was "not available " the waitress brought a much more expensive wine and failed to inform us until we checked the wine list, this was a clear attempt to rip us off , as there were similar priced alternatives. When challenged the waitress... More

Very nicely located in the Old Town (on Stari Trg). Waitress was very pleasant and helpful and smiling. It helped that she could communicate well in English. The food was out of this world-absolutely marvelous- (we had a late lunch/early supper the day we arrived July 6 2014)- I started with a Tomato Soup (excellent- non cream based), which was... More

The service is very fast for the quality of food they are serving. We have 2 younger kids and they love the homemade pasta... More
