Resturant with a character

Could a resturant also be a museum? The answer to this question is YES. And te Lectar restaurant in Radovljica it's a proof for my statement. Located in the old town of Radovljica with more than 180 years of gastronomic tradition (the house is more than 500 years old) the place is worth visit just... read more

We rode our bicycles from Bled to have lunch at this restaurant. The hostess seated us but we never saw her again. In fact we never saw anyone again. After waiting 15 minutes or so for some one to take our drink order we left. No one seemed to notice. We were happy to take our thirst and appetite to... More

Ate lunch here with a small tour group. The mushroom soup in a bread bowl was very good, even the bowl tasted good. After that there was a salad. There was a steak rolled around cooked plum which also tasted good but there were some pieces that were tough. Most of our group had the sausage, but for those that... More

Excellent food, excellent service. There was a tour group in the next room, but the same waiter nevertheless gave us great service, advised us on side dishes to go with our choices of entree, and even cautioned us to order less because portions were big. Traditonal Slovenian fare, artfully prepared. I had calf liver, perhaps the best I've ever had... More

I would walk past this restaurant 9/10 times based on the outside simple as it didn't seem busy however once we were inside the place was actually rather busy with a wonderful cosy atmosphere. We weren't too sure what local dishes were best so we selected an all round dish that covered a variety of tastes and it was interesting... More

As stated in one review, this place does accommodate tour groups, but that's not all bad. The food is well prepared with adequate portions. It's not gourmet dining, but it is substantial and not overpriced. There is a touristy component, but that adds some interest. We found the service to be excellent -- both helpful and genuinely cordial. It is... More

Super scenic morning being rowed out to island and back, then climbing to top of bled castle -- hard act to follow. BUT the village of Radovljica, with blocks of 15th and 16th century buildings and homes and cute streets and squares is up to the challenge. We entered Lectar to accordion serenade by the owner, who later retailed us... More

Nice atmosphere and ok food. This place offers opportunity to see traditional crafts (ginger bread making) and taste traditional food. Service was excellent and host was very entertaining. Prices were ok.

As its title says - almost excellent! We heard about this place and visit it and we have not regretted! The food was excellent especially rabbit in sauce with vegetables!

We visited Gostilina Lectar for our farewell tour dinner with a small group. We enjoyed watching how they made their decorative gingerbread cookies in the basement and sampled their traditional foods including mushroom soup in a bread bowl, beef with prunes and sausage with sauerkraut - all quite tasty - followed by apple ice cream - YUM! Radovljica is a... More
