Good local food, nice atmosphere

The food was really good. We had a plate with a few different local specialties and we were not disappointed. The dessert (heart shaped gingerbread) was a little below our expectations but was still good.

After reading the positive reviews, our experience of the food was that it was a bit disappointing. I had a plate of grilled calf’s liver which was quite plentiful, however I was surprised not to be asked how I wanted it cooked. I could have done with it to have been cooked a bit rarer though it was quite tasty.... More

If you are in Slovenia and close to lake bled save 1 additional hour to visit Radovljica village and Lectar restaurant. Actually we didnt eat there. We did visit the ginger bread production floor. It was really nice experience. try it.

What a treat. First of all, the old town pedestrianized street in Radovljica is worth a visit in itself. We far preferred it to nearby Bled, which was disappointing. The restaurant is charming, down-to-earth, and a lovely dining experience in every way. We were visiting friends who are locals in a town near here and they took us out to... More

Nice ambient, lovely service and very good food! Desserts are fantastic! Mushroom soup in bread basket is also great. For the main we tried the Lectar platter for two. Sausages were great, the other things so so... For the dessert we also tried signature platter for two, and it was magnificent. 25€ per person is the price for soup, main,... More

Even though it is quiet a big restaurant, you will feel comfortable there, since they have different rooms where they host/serve the guests. Traditional food is really tasty and prepared the old home made way. Try the peasants feast.. if you are a meat lover. And visit also the living ginger bread museum in the cellar. Very interesting. :)

Yes, I know tour groups frequent this restaurant. But when I ate here, the food was surprisingly good, especially the mushroom soup served in a little hard roll and a delicious dessert - a fresh green apple stuffed with apple gelato (with the little green cap of the apple sitting on the gelato) with the whole thing sitting on a...

Great food in this nice & authentic Slovenian restaurant. Mushroom or pumpkin soup is a must! We took some local dishes: stew, goulash, blood sausage etc and everything was rather taste. They have great choice of side dishes e.g. Matevz is incredible tasty.

Lectars main business seems to be bus trips. People pour in are taken down to the gingerbread workshop and sold gingerbread hearts. Then they are fed by staff in traditional costume. Then usually serenaded with accordion and guitar music. Food can vary. There is better. Whatever floats your boat!
