“Good value away from the crowds by the river”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We went here on our first night in Slovenia after a recommendation from our hotel. It is traditional Sovenian. Quite large rustic interior and a good welcome. Waiter was almost over enthusiastic (wasn't his best evening for serving our food !). Food was plentiful and good value.

“Good food, very slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Since them restaurant was very close to our hotel, we ate there twice rather than searching the old town for one that has local food. The first time, we were seated in the back section. It took 15 minutes before the waiter came by even though there were only a hand full of people there. Once we placed the order, the food came out fairly quickly. We had to wait a long time before we got the attention of the waiter to pay. The food was very good and the portion was generous. If not, we would not have gone a second time (service was a bit better).

“pleasant interior”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

This is a place many people recommend and we were rather disappointed. The service was ok but the food was not great, traditional or not.
The main course was tired meat and hard to chew, the blood sausage was heavy. Soup in the bread was ok but have tasted much better in Prague. Would not recommend.

“Touristy, but Rustic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Loud but friendly. Robust menu of great food. The creme soup came in a wonderful bread bowl. The mixed grill plate was very tasty and the desserts were tempting. The Whipped Caramel Fig Creme dessert was the winner.
