“Good restaurant in beautiful place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Strange menu with a mixture of local and Indian dishes., lots of choice even for a vegetarian. Slovenian white wine is very good but I think they must reserve all the fridge space for their famous local cake as it is invariably not serve chilled. Had asparagus to start followed by pasta with truffle oil...both lovely. Service v good, sad to say it has been my experience that young staff are good in Bled but older staff generally surly and grumpy! The lake is stunningly beautiful. Everyone should visit it at least once

“QUITE GOOD, EXPENSIVE RESTAURANT”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

People say the best restaurant of Bled: quite comfortable, friendly ambience, sweet natural service. Tables without tablecloths, but with proper napkins. No selection of wines by the glass, despite the poster, but only house wine besides a small selection of bottles. Fairly good the food: good the veg sauté, so-so the lamb cutlets. Hefty bill, if you compare with the top Slovenian restaurants ( Pri Lojzetu/Vipava, Hisa Franko/Kobarid…..).

“Cost restaurant with some interesting dishes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Had dinner there with colleagues. Its a cosy place, usually quite packed with interesting dishes. I had the mountain goat! and it was very good. The service is good with friendly staff. A bit expensive for Bled but with one night out.

“Outstanding menu and food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

Such a large selection on the menu. They offer pasta, meat dishes, but also have a large vegetarian selection and Indian dishes as well. We had tomato soup and onion soup to start and they were both very good. Mains were chicken tikka masala and a wonderful mushroom provencale.
