Good food, but the wait. . .

We sat down for dinner around 1915 and it finally came around 2115! The waiter apologized profusely and comped about 80% of the meal, so I'm going to put aside the timeliness issue and talk about the rest of it. The food was very good, the location hidden in a quiet neighborhood, and the ambience... read more

The true culture of Slovenian gourmet food to you by pleasant staff, at a very convenient price. This restaurant was really wonderful. I made the reservation by phone and everything went so smoothly. If you are visiting Ljubljana you must eat here. The service and ambiance were equally as impressive. On my next trip to Ljubljana and Slovenia we will... More

A quiet and romantic location not far from the riverside. We loved the relaxed atmosphere and pleasant service. The food was excellent and well presented. My husband particularly enjoyed the variety of craft beer available. I highly recommend Pri Skofu!

Amazing restaurant with extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff and delicious food. Reservations encouraged, because it's small, but you can probably get away with putting your name in earlier in the day. The roasted mushrooms were excellent, and I normally don't like mushrooms. Pair it with the house salad of mixed greens and you almost won't want an entree, though you'd... More

Everything was perfect: the location is quiet, pretty and romantic in a small street off the beaten path. There was just the right amount of choice for food, with decent portions and affordable prices. The dishes themselves were delicious, especially the starters (grilled chanterelles were amazing). The best part: authentic friendly service from a waiter who looked like he actually... More

This is a cute little restaurant down an alleyway off the river, surrounded by traditional houses. It's not a big walk from the center, so don't let that put you off. The people who run it are exceptionally friendly, the lunch menus are an excellent value, and the regular items are very good, too. We highly recommend this place for... More

I had a very nice meal here. It started with an amuse bouche on the house with some cottage cheese and bread. The Slovenian cold cuts are a must. The Škof beef steak was excellent. With the amount of black pepper involved, it's nothing for the fainthearted. The food mentioned, a beer, 500 ml of red wine, coffee, and a... More

My husband and I truly enjoyed our dinner. The restaurant is just a short walk from the Main Street but in those steps you are transported to a totally different atmosphere. The food was fresh and absolutely delicious. The prices were very reasonable.

This place would normally be out of my price range but I went for the 8 euro lunch special. For the super reasonable price, I had an outstanding gourmet meal - three courses, the highlight of which was sea bass seasoned with salt and lavender. The waiter was attentive and the place is tucked away in an adorable ivy-covered pocket... More

Came here on a recomendation from the Guardian and it did not disappoint! This place is especially good if you're vegetarian! They have a variety of fish as well as meat but the pasta is the best! Tomato soup which was clearly home made €3! Glass of white Slovenian wine €1.50! Gnocchi with porticni mushroom sauce €10 and home made... More
