Very good food, very talented and passionate chef

We came for a business dinner, which ended up lasting 4 hours. However this was a food and taste journey I will not forget. From the white chocolate stuffed with mango to the fantastically cooked and seasoned veal. Next stop will be with my wife

The ambience and the eclectic nature of the owner made this a special evening. The food was okay. I loved the appetizers and the dessert. The soup was different and good. I did not like the main course of mushroom with corn in some sort of soupy base.

My family and I had a meal at MaK today. This was an amazing experience! We were all fascinated by the marvellous food creations with stunning wine pairing. I did not expect slow food today and I was totally surprised and blown away by the meal we had. The staff was amazing along with the atmosphere and music. The owner... More

A table for 6 on a damp Tuesday night in a less than glamorous suburb of Maribor, a not noticeably chic town in Slovenia. What could there be here to write home about. Mak Restaurant for one thing. An entirely unexpected foodie experience and certainly one of our best. The website doesn't give much away and the mystery continues on... More

We came for a quick lunch. And in Mak that ment two hours and we really loved it. You never really sit there once you done with the course you have few minutes to comment it while the next course arrives. Its an experience which you wont quickly forget.

The most incredible culinary experience which lasted 3 hours just before the Maribor v Chelsea champions league match. The food, service and attention to detail was much better than than the first 45 mins. Of the match. Also the wine was superb, particularly the Verus Sauvignon blanc.

Never expected to find a restaurant of this standard in Maribor. However thanks to local recommendation I decided to try it out for lunch, and thank God for that! =) Chef David welcomed me and told me "he was today's menu". He then wanted to know how hungry I was and if I was in a hurry or not. As... More

What a surprise! This restaurant was recommended to me by Sacha, the bar/cocktail waiter at the Hotel City in Maribor, Slovenia. The very talented Chef, David Vracko (I think it is spelt like this!), produced an amazing series of imaginative and varied courses and advised us of some extremely good Slovenian wines to accompany them. I am not sure whether... More
