“Always Excellent Quality For Years Already”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

I go there ,mainly on business lunches, for years already.Never dissapointed, excellent meat, soups, but also Adriatic fish , especially known for excellent beefsteak, St. Piero fish in oven(named Kovač in Slovene).Nice garden under big trees, big parking , outside Ljubljana, but few minutes away.They have also private rooms, good for dinners with business partners.

“Nice local food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

In any other city I would rate it 4 out of 5 but the competition is so tough here and number of outstanding, slow food places so big that you have to do well above the average to get a good rating. Anyhow, great local/ Mediterranean cuisine, with a nice fish carpaccio, delicious seasonal asparagus and good choice of grilled seafood or meat. Everything was good but somehow lacks this extra twist that differentiate good from very good.

“very good restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

It will take you some 10-12 minutes to get there by car (if you take a taxi or driver is from Ljubljana). it is in the suburb of Ljubljana. Restaurant has a small garden, larger room and kind of a winter garden that our party used for the event we had. We had preordered menu (soups - beef and leak, I tried leak soup which was great), fish or meat menu (I went for a meet, combination of 3 pieces of meet, small beefsteak, pork chop and third I cannot remember what) and it was delicious. With home made bread and great wine it was a lovely evening. years ago I visited Kovac and had a la carte meals and always it was excellent. Staff very helpful and polite, yet indiscrete.

“one of the best in ljubljana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Not only one of the best of but also one of the most reliable. Always perfect, always friendly and correct.
It doesn't matter if meat or fish, you can be sure that it will be delicious.
...and don't forget to try the sweets including the home made ice!
In summer, garden is just perfect to enjoy the meal and relax!
