“Nice Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Lovely setting beside the river. I had a nice Cuban Plate and my wife who has food problems was well looked after with a chicken fillet on creamy mashed potato. Service was extremely friendly. There are a lot of restaurants along the river, but taking into account the setting, great service and food, would definitely recommend. We ate in the middle of the day.

“Great little steakhouse!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Ate here with a group of friends on a Saturday night and I have to say that their food was really good. I went for the house burger which was excellent but I definitely made the wrong choice! My friends went for a 400oz steak and the fact they didn't say a word for fifteen minutes after they received it tells you all you what you need to know. They left nothing on the plate and all said that the steaks were cooked to perfection. The food was definitely good value for money and was located right on the river which gave it an excellent atmosphere. If I had stayed in Ljubljana any longer I would have definitely gone back.

“Summer lunch on the terrace is fine.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

The food overall was good, unfortunately we had to wait almost 15 mins however there were no guests around. Overlooking to the river is priceless. The waitress was polite. The place is not cheap as most of the others around.

“Good steakhouse, waterpipes offered too!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

Food is of pretty good quality and location is very nice as well. Menu offers plenty choice although they like to profile them as a steak house. Try the Cuban plate as a starter but make sure you are hungry enough to finish the main dish aferwards.

And instead of a desert, opt for the waterpipe combined with some drink(s). More original and less calories....

“Unfriendly and poor”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

I have visited many cafees in Ljubljana as an expat here and this is one of few very negative experiences Ive had. The service is slow and what is served is barely medium, if they have whats on the menu that is.. The staff is absolutely the worst part of the experience at Stara Macka, they are unfriendly and getting change is not an easy task - they will calculate their own tip without informing you. Needless I am never returning here. Ljubljana has a vast selection of great cafees, and this is not one of them.
