Visiting Dvorec Zemono is not only about food and wine but about enjoying top culinary state of the art. It is not for every day and not for every mood. When you decide to take a business dinner or family Sunday lunch save some 4 - 5 hours and be in a specific mood to fully enjoy everything what Zemono... More

That was my 5th visit to this restaurant. And they suceeded to impress us, again! We never order a la carte, but simply let them to guide us through their fresh season specialties. They can easily compare to some 1 or even 2 star Michelin restaurants. What a wonderful place!

I have been there both during the summer (enjoying 5 hours long lunch with beautiful view on the surrounding vineyards) and during the winter, with almost as long diner in 300 years old cellar.

It was so good I asked for one of the recipes so I could give it to my son who is a chef, so he could... More

Having read through the reviews we expected a lot. Presentation of the dishes was very playful and refreshing (the vine with amuses, gin tonic dessert...) but the the taste is not always at the same level. And waiting times between the many dishes were a bit long at times. During our holiday in Slovenia we remember at least one restaurant... More
