Lovely restaurant, nice decor, good atmosphere, friendly helpful staff, and delicious food. If you ask them they will do great vegetarian food as well. I enjoyed every meal I had here and was impressed by the vegetarian food - and didnt feel as though my food was an after thought (which I often feel). I would recommend this restaurant and... More

After visiting the Predjama Castle and Postonja Caves, having lunch at Proteus restaurant was the best decision. We enjoyed the excellent menu and nice desserts. Staff was very kind and offered all the attention for our baby.

Very nice interior and atmosphere, with kind if separated tables. Food was ok, nothing special, a bit too simple for my taste. Similar for service. They were trying hąrd, some additional training, especially in managing big group would help. Proposed wines (by waiters) met expectations.

We enjoyed a light lunch and dinner at this smart but relaxed restaurant in the centre of Postojna. Decor is simple appealing and the dining room is nicely broken up somewhat by dangling curtains. There is also an outdoor covered area on the main square. Staff were efficient, courteous, helpful and engaging with quite good English. The dinner menu offers... More

This place is centrally located in Postojna, very close to major hotels and walking distance to the Postojna cave. We went there for lunch, the service was fast, friendly and very helpful. We ordered diverse foods, some meat and some fish. Their portions were surprisingly big and with appetizers and deserts we were served more food than we could eat.... More

We arrived in the area on a Sunday afternoon. Not my places open and Proteus was fairly busy. Service was spot on. Drinks arrived very quick and the food shortly after that. Portions were very generous and taste was good. Good value for money.

We dined at Restaurant Proteus as we were staying at Hotel Kras just across the main town square from the restaurant. We were not sure what to expect, and we were very pleasantly surprised and delighted with our meal. We had the Chef's Daily Four-Course Menu. Starting with the Karst dry-cured ham, which was delicious, especially the oven roasted tomatoes.... More
