A friendly little establishment , where the waitress was very accommodating by offering us samples of the dishes before we ordered. The food was good, at a good price and accompanied by a very reasonable house wine.

I met my friend for lunch at her suggestion, Marley & Me, a cozy European restaurant serving a blend of Italian, Mediterranean, and Slovenian cuisine. The restaurant is tiny, and seems to be a hit with the locals of Ljubljana, meaning they are often crowded. That said, the staff were incredibly accommodating and welcoming, and the service was better than... More

We stumbled upon Marley and Me becausecthe recommended restaurant and another restaurant , both had wait times of 30 minutes. We were starving so decided to look for another restaurant. Marley & Me presented so nicely, we couldn't figure out why it wasn't busy. We were seated right away, handed our menus, and found that the menu looked incredible. We... More

Stopped in on a cold Sunday for a nice lunch. Good hearty food in a nice view watching the pedestrian zone pass by. Had the sausage and veggie platter which is a steal for 9!euros.

We had a very unpleasant experience at this place. We received our meal cca. 7 minutes after ordering it. It was quite obvious that the food was only reheated, it tasted like it was prepared a few days ago and we had to return the food. In the end we didn't have to pay for the meal, but the whole...

The small Cousy place in the center of Ljubljana delivers a nice and warm meal off home made pasta, desserts and local wines. The lunch i had was tasty with the start of nice soup and delicious main dish with the top of a great dessert..

If you fancy a final Kremna rezina and coffee at lunch time before leaving Ljubljana then walk on by Marley and Me! Although prominently displayed the waiter said 'We are not allowed to sell just cake and coffee during the day as they are needed for the evening'. Note to evening diners - your cream cakes have been sitting out... More

Matej R, Owner at Marley & Me, responded to this review

Dear sir or madam. I am really disappointed in your review because it does not tell anything about our service or our food, which we believe is on good and fair level. It is a small restaurant and not a pastries place so you have to understand our policy about serving only deserts or coffee in our 20-seat-small restaurant. Since... More
