Great food and fantastic service

The food was outstanding, and the service excellent. I had issues with Slovenian wine until I ate here, as they have an extensive wine selection and very knowledgable staff. In fact I bought a few bottles from their cellar to bring back with us.

Expect only the best ingredients and truly great wines. The chef, Ana Roš, is a world renown chef and she trully lives up to this reputation. I wonder when they are getting the Michelin star they deserve?

Definitely the most upscale of any hotel and restaurant in Kobarid. Our room had a large (shared) covered balcony and was handsomely appointed. The cuisine at dinner in their restaurant was inventive and delicious. The free breakfast was the finest we had on our trip to slovenia. Be prepared for sticker shock at checkout.

Clearly one of the best restaurants I have ever been. I visited restaurant with my wife for our 10th anniversary and had privilege to have all restaurant for ourselves :) They serve really fine, high end food. Tastes are extremely refined, combinations unbelievable... Be advised that their food is focused on raw ingredients (also meat), but I encourage even most... More

The food is excellent (with local and seasonal ingredients), most of the wines matched the food really well and are reasonably priced, great service (the staff is very very kind!). It is just perfect!

I visited the restaurant on more occassions and I was always very satisfied. It is the best restaurant I've ever been to, and I've been to a good number of them. The cuisine is creative and respects the local ingredients and the chef Ana Roš is a genious who puts them together in unexpected combinations. The last time I was... More

Eat here with a group of ten. Each of the courses, a light cheese starter, mushroom risotto, duck breast, dessert was outstanding. The recommended wines, not wines that we were familiar with matched the food very well. The service was correct in all manners. By far the best meal we have had in a week and a half traveling Croatia... More

A group of us had an outstanding 5 course degustation dinner - every course was unique, they all fitted well together, and the food was as good as anywhere we have eaten in the world. Wines were very good, service was excellent, and ambience of the restaurant was very appealing. Highly recommended for an exceptional dining experience!
