We tried the beafsteaks as they should be one of the best in Ljubljana. We get only the meat, no spices (the meat should lay in the souce for at least a day to get some taste), with a little gravy on top. And the worst was waiter ignoring us, not offering water or deserts at all. And when we... More

It's one of those places you simply have to visit now and then. It is a cozy traditional place with old comfortable furniture decorated with frogs (flower pots and sculptures, umbrella stands and even litter bin in front of the hose are all in form of frogs). The name itself can be translated "Frog-catcher's" and yes as most of the... More

Gostilna Pri Zabarju is some 3km outside Ljubljana's centre, but definitely worth the trip (or taxi ride), as it is authentic and nontouristic. It has some parking accomodation for which you do not have to pre-register, which is a rare thing for Ljubljana restaurants. The restaurant's banner feature the frog, and frog legs is an appetizer on the menu. The... More

In Slovenian Gostilna, in the "old" times, meant "public house", "inn", "tavern" or all of the above and usually provided sleeping quarters and food. This establishment is the true representation of theSlovenian Gostilna. The restaurant decor with wood beams, solid furniture and local ethnic feel serves true Slovenian food as well as some other international dishes. The salads area absolutely... More

This restaurant opens only from Monday to Friday. It was very good in our recent visit. Not the cheapest place in town. The main dish did not come with anything - you have to order veggie or potatoes or soup or salad. The restaurant has a theme of frog - you can see frogs everywhere - trash can frog, stuff... More

i was staying at the adjacent hotel/penzion which also owns this restaurant. In addition to indoor seating, they have a nice outdoors area. The menu was fairly extensive and i was contemplating trying to select amongst a few dishes for the main course. I asked the waiter his opinion and he gave me a great reply. He said " I... More
