A must

I visit the place every time I go to Ljubljana, 3-4 times a year, it's the first stop after the landing. It's the unpretentious atmosphere, great service and superb food!

This place is slight walk out of the town and we picked the restaurant as we wanted a good slovenian meal. The place does not look much from the outside and looks like someones extension inside. We were the only people in there and where a bit concerned at first but the service was good,the waitress was friendly and helpful... More

Recommended by our hotel, we sought out Pri Skofu and experienced the most authentic Slovene meal of our time in the capital. It typified Slovenia in many ways, seemingly oblivious to just how appealing and welcoming a restaurant it is. We were welcomed with delicious soups, tasted the finest gnocchi with truffles and the mains (salmon and beefsteak respectively) were... More

This restaurant is tucked away up a side street but was well worth the hunt for it. We had a lunch special for €8 which included a delicious vegetable soup, bread and oils, mushrooms in port with mash and a very good chocolate mousse with cream. We were very impressed with it all. The restaurant is small but has a... More

We were eating here during summer, and we were enjoying relaxing atmosphere at the terrace. Have to say that everything was average: food, service and drinks selection; but also that the place was charming! The prices are a bit high. If you are in the vicinity, this place is nice because it is much quieter and more relaxing than the... More

Look no further. This place is a must. The food was sensational. We drove 2 hours out of the way at the end of our trip to dine here again because it was simply the best food we had in Eastern Europe. The owners are very nice and if you can dine outside it just completes it. You are sitting... More

This is an authentic Slovenian family restaurant 5 minutes walk from the main centre. Alongside traditional Slovenian food, there are other European dishes. The decor is simple and homely. We had Beef soup and gnocchi to start with, followed by mains of pork tenderloin and steak with roasted pear and potatoes. We were also welcomed with a starter of bread... More

This is quite simply the best restaurant in Ljubljana! Tucked away in a corner of a side-street near the river to the south of the old town. Family-run with a passion for fantastic food/service. Add it to your to-do list.

We take a lunch menu , everything was very good, freshly cooked with fresh ingredients. Amazind value : 4 courses for 8 € The location is near the river, so if the weather is nice, you can enjoy the beautiful little terrace.
