An easy joy of tastes

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.

I read about Hisa Franko in Bon Appetit magazine and it didn't disappoint. They have a 3, 5 or 9 course dinner option and I couldn't believe the affordability of the amazing Slovenian wine pairings. The restaurant uses local, seasonal ingredients - my kind of eating. Amazing
