Top food! We had a 3 course lunch at “Teden restavracij”. Everything was so good! The beef cheek, duck meat, chocolate mousse,...the meat was soft and tasty. It was so delicious that i forget to make a photo of the main course:D

Really impressive little bistro. Simple dishes delivered to a very high standard. Good ambience in the room and excellent attention to detail. The servers were very knowledgeable and were able to cater for my partner who is gluten intolerant. 10/10 would visit again and highly...recommend to others!More

On of the top restaurants in Ljubljana. We tried a 7-course menu. A great wine that accompanied the food. But still, for this level they afforded few mistakes, I wasn't expecting. The service was a bit confused, some fat on the steak ...

It's a nice place to eat out. We were there in time of lunch and it was not crowded. The food was fine and portions are generous.

5/5 or 10/10 - Worth of every euro! If you are looking for an extraordinary food experience where you will get a burst of many flavors and food perfection then you simply just have to try it if you are in Ljubljana, Slovenia! Monstera restaurant is...a really cozy place. The best thing is to leave it to the Cheif. We took the 7-course tasting dinner menu and we were amazed! Food was freshly prepared and more than delicious, all the servings were sophisticated. The waiter gave us excellent advice about the wine - which perfectly paired with the food. They explained to us every detail on the plate and took us through a really pleasant journey of flavors. Bottom the line if you summon all the experience, cooking techniques, service,... all the offer it is really good price-performance (price-per-value/what you get). Definitely we will take another dinner and I recommend it to everyone who is a hedonist at heart and who is looking for the proper food experience.More

I made a reservation for my wife's' (vegetarian) b-day late lunch. When we got seated, the waiter immediately explained the two lunch menus and additional changes to my wife's course. We were pleasantly surprised - know your customer works here! The dishes were fresh and...you could taste every ingredient. The accompanying wines were great. We will return for sure.More
