I have been to restaurant Spajza on several occasions, both on business trips and for holiday visit to Lubljana, and it is the same good experience every time. The atmosphere is nice, old fashioned, no fuzz, and for me the food is also very good. The people working there are friendly. The food and wine reminds me of Italian cuisine,... More

This place must have changed owner or something. Starters are around 10 euro and main courses are 20-30 euro - thats not cheap as indicated by tripadvisor. We gave it a go, but soon regretted. Waiter was nice but not very competent. Food wasn't any better than what I could have prepared myself, which is not a compliment. Can not... More

It was our best meal in Ljubljana by far. A very interesting menu with a wide range of offerings. Great service and just a perfect evening.

As an Australian traveller, I have visited Slovenia a number of times. It is one of my favourite places in Europe - the people, the scenery, but most important of all, the FOOD! I have tried many restaurants there, and few stood out to me as amazing as Špajza. From the time I walked in the door to the time... More

The restaurant looked like a cozy and warm place on a rainy evening. Sadly the food was only mediocre and the service was far from warm and hearty. I felt like I could have prepared the dishes better myself with a little effort (i am not a great cook). Judging by all the glowing reviews the chef must have been... More

We made a reservation to Spajza after reading the good reviews on TripAdvisor. The location is nice and restaurants romantic decor sets up expectations but unfortunately the food was a big disappointment for us both and we also felt that the service was rather cold and distant. We ate three courses each and only the caprese salad I had as... More

we arrived here on a Monday night on a recommendation. lots of couples, which was fine and the menu is interesting. the restaurant building itself is very nice. our server, Andre, was very pushy about items on the menu and on upselling us on the wine. then he tried hard to play with words (feigning poor english) about whether or...

It all started with somehow arrogant waiter's behaviour: no seats without reservation. At the end they opened a part of the restaurant with 5-6 empty tables. It ended with very proffesional waiter (another one), nice experience and great food: octopus was perfect, chocolate souffle very interesting to eat.

Was here for dinner with my partner and our baby. Cozy atmosphere, great and friendly service and excellent food. We tried the fish degustation meny concisting of four courses plus a desert, and it was both very well presented and exeptionally tasty. The waiter's suggestions of white wine were very suitable and we liked the wine a lot (now in... More

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation of a local who said it was his favorite. The room we were in was so cozy and intimate. We ordered a white, Slovenian wine on the recommendation of our waiter and it was refreshing. Our salads were a generous portion, so welcomed by these travelers. My husband's veal medallions were the... More
