“Great wine bar with excellent wines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Vinoteka Movia is an absolute must stop point, if you like to unwind over a glass of local wine accompanied by delicious ham and cheese cold platters to nibble on after a frenzy tour of the city. It is located right next to the town hall in the calmer area of the pedestrian-only zone of the old city centre, close to the triple bridge, the open market and just a few steps away from some of the best restaurants in Ljubljana.
The vinoteka (wine cellar) gives you the impression of being in little cosy wine cellar with the wine bottles climbing all the way up to the ceiling and with its wooden rustic style tables and bar chairs. It also has a nice outside lounging area during the warmer months where you can enjoy various street performances ,which take place in the area during the summer months. Lastly, the staff is very friendly and keen on sharing background information about the Slovene wines.
The vinoteka is great if you are looking for a quiet and intimate place to spend the afternoon or late evening lounging and at the same time it is more then appropriate for a large group of people.

A truly fantastic place you wont forget!

“The best wine bar in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Vinoteka Movia is located on a perfect spot and the atmosphere is just outstanding. Everything is so romantic and intimate ... All the candles around make it even more misterious. I've had the best wine in that bar ... It's called Movia sauvignon and I really enjoyed it. The prices are little bit higher but as far as you know that you are paying for quality that doesn't bother me. They also serve prosciutto and cheese which I found really delicious. The servis was also nice. They explained me a lot about the wine I was drinking and that was pretty useful. I highly recommend wine bar Movia to anyone who likes good wines.

“Great wine and great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Close to the three bridges and in a great spot for people watching. The wait staff is very wine educated and willing to spend a lot of time discussing and helping pick a great wine. Many to choose from. A very nice place for a pre dinner glass as you reflect on this beautiful town. Went two nights in a row :).

“Outstanding Wine Cellar in Ljubljana, Slovenia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

I visited Vinoteka Movia on an invitation from a local group, very good wines, and food, but come here for the variety of wines and the opportunity to meet local people.
Here is a video I did on this Ljubljana that includes footage from the owner of Vinoteka Movia.
