An oasis of civilization...wow!

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... read more

There are restaurants around the world that are making places worth visiting just for them. Hisa Franko is one on these places. (Although the surrounding nature - mountains, valleys, rivers... - is breathtakingly beautiful.)

Visiting Hisa Franko on our way back from Venice was a smartest thing to do. The nature, hospitality and food are hard to match! We had a full 9-course dinner with different glass of vine to accompany every different taste. And the taste... Simply a must!

Far from everything, this restaurant is a jewel in the Soca Valley region. They only offer three fixed menus, prices starting from above 40 €/person. The food, the atmosphere and the service were all top class. They have their own wine cellar and they sell a wide variety of local wines at affordable prices.

After visiting Slovenia for 15 days, Hisa Franko was the best meal we enjoyed. They have a very special menu, that it changes very often, full of innovation, delicatessen and extraordinary combinations that will blow your mind. Be prepared for the desserts too :) 5 Courses menu it is a great choice.
