“Good food, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

We were in this restaurant only once, for late lunch. We were the only guests, but they had the excellent choice of meals. It is a traditional Slovenian food, with some choice of venison. Very tasty and big portions; we could not eat everything they brought to us.

“Tradition is the main reason to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Been here many time and always had a good meal. Food is simple, but tasty. The restaurant has great tradition and is well known after the Avsenik brothers, who are the greatest and best known Slovene musicians. It is not a fancy place, but if you want some real traditional Slovene food, go there. They also have a music museum, which you should visit.

“Great food, great music, excellent tribute to the Avseniks and their music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Had a great evening. Started with a visit to the museum, honoring the record-setting Slovenian music of the Avsenik family. Great movie, neat exhibits, and wonderful music. Then, had dinner at the gostilna during one of the nights when the famous music of the Avseniks was featured. The food was excellent, with more than enough to fill almost anyone's stomach. We tried the Slivovitz and that was great also. The waitresses did a great job in keeping the tables full and the customers happy. Be aware that the bank doesn't play every night.

The orchestra was superb. While the music was basically Slovenian, there was a smattering of German and also American included. The language of the band leader was primarily German, but Slovenian was also included. The dance floor was always full and the attendees seemed to truly enjoy the night.

The museum is in a different building from the gostilna and their is a short outdoor walk of, perhaps, one hundred feet in between the two buildings.
