“Like a dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

First of all, sorry for the delay. We were in Lubjana for the New Year's Eve in 2012/2013. We decided to avoid the dinner (too expensive) and we booked for the lunchtime the New Year's Day. Everything was perfect: the music in background, the kindness of the staff, the price and, of course, the food. If you are in Lubjana, you have to try Spajza

“Gute Speise, but not for handicapped”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Spajza means "food", and comes close to the German word for it. It's a very good restaurant, a bit pricy, but it's one of the few in Ljubljana that are open on Sunday evening. In fact, on Sunday evenings, Spajza is the best you can get (on other evenings, competition is more intense). A distinct drawback (for handicapped) is that Spajza is located in the car-free part of Gornji street, and that you'll have to walk 300m from the nearest drop-off place for taxi's. Cooking is inspired on Italian cuisine, but with distinct local traits, and the wine list is worthwhile.

“Great food, good wine, slightly overprized”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

A very charming place, with good service and terrific food, as well as a good selection of wines. Definitely the best restaurant we went to in Ljubljana, though we had the feeling, and locals confirmed so, that it was slightly overprized.

“Good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

If you want to eat good fish - Šajza is a very good selection. Also other food that they offering is very good quality. They have a great codfish pate. Špajza is a good place for a business lunch / dinner. Pleasing ethno space and very friendly staff.
