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!

Sneaking in at the back door is not a good idea! You really should make a reservation not to be chased off. It took us two attempts to make it in that same evening (we played kind, then desperate, then dead). The menu should not be described - it should be tried. Paired with excellent wine recommendations. We really enjoyed... More

My husband and I decided to eat at Hisa Franko during our stay in Kobarid. Being from London, we found the meal to be very good value for the quality of the food and matching wines we had. The food was excellent with some very interesting flavour combinations - which is what I look for in a tasting menu. Make... More

A party of 11, celebrating two birthdays, turned out to a memorable lunch, treated to superb food, complete with wonderful Slovenian wines the knowledgeable Sommelier recommended, we were under the impression that Slovenian were not up to standard, these wines certainly changed our minds. The food all five courses were beautifully presented and tasted just as good, each dish an... More

Couple of friends decided to visit Hisa Franco because of the great recommendations, however the overnight stay did not fulfil our expectations. Accommodation we have got was not what we reserved and paid. The personal of... More

Excellent place! The food was excellent and we had a great evening. This said, not all 9-10 courses were great - the two fish starters tasted very good, but not excellent. There was also sometimes a tendency to overwork the food – sometimes less would have been more. They grayling itself was excellent though, but the beetroot and raspberry did... More

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 was wonderfully fresh... More
