Lovely experience for both lunch and dinner

We first stopped at Hisa Franko for lunch, and were told they only had a simple menu for lunch, but we were ok with thus because we had our 3 small kids in tow. Well, after that simple lunch, we booked dinner reservations right away! It was absolutely amazing. Even the pasta they made for the kids... read more

So many good words we heard so many good reviews we saw... We decided to go for the ultimate couple Sunday lunch where we ordered the most this restaurant can afford - their 9 course menu. The food was mostly avarage except one dish where it takes a lot of immagiantion to understand how an extremely good fish can become... More

Even though we only stayed one night, we had a wonderful experience at both the inn and the restaurant. We have dined at many Michelin starred restaurants in the US and Paris and thought the innovation at Hisa Franko was on par with any of these. The service was impeccable, the atmosphere beautiful, and the surroundings spectacular. The wine pairings... More

We visited here several times. Hidden away in a Slovene walley in the beautiful Soča river area (NW Slovenia), this restaurant and guesthouse (about 6 rooms available) in a cosy place to stay, and is a culinary joy. Tables are set in a glass winter garden, walls open in those months when weather allows. Clean and well kept bathrooms. Nice... More

We had a fantastic meal here while staying overnight at the hotel. Several of the dining guests were staying as well, which gave the place a somewhat family feel. This worked out great for us, since the kids were able to find others there age and appear and disappear at will -- a key element for success with a 5-course... More

I like how Ana and Valter pay great attention to details when selecting local produce. There are many good fine dinning restaurants but most of them loose their track. Hisa Franco stays loyal to local.

What an awesome meal! We had the five course meal, and the combinations of favors was just incredible. What a creative chef! Who would think of putting liquid nettles in a tortellini? Or cucumber in a dessert? Each course was better than the last and the local wines they suggested fit perfectly. I'm amazed to find such an amazing restaurant... More

Driving from Cividale to Kobarid all my life and actually went to Franko for the first time only recently...what a fool I have been! With a 16/20 gault millau rating and a dining experience certainly at the level of a *Michelin (when will it come...) this is certainly a place to respect and come back to. We took the 5... More

From the pre dinner drinks and canapés to the coffee and truffles we could not faults this superb restaurant. So much so we returned to stay for 4 nights.
