This place is not at the prime spot for tourists but still very close to the main riverside pedestrian walk. It is small and there is no river view, but the place is cozy. Service and prices were fine; particularly house wine, my pasta was completely not salted but my wife's tortellini was delicious. Make sure to have a reservation... More

We have been to Julija next door which we love but it was full so we tried Marley & Me - so glad we did. Lovely service and delicious food. We shared octopus said and the Slovene sausage. The octopus was melt in the mouth tender. Just delicious

Old part of Ljubljana is brimming with tourists on a sunny summer Saturday. We got a table in the street, enjoying the people-watching. The waiter was very efficient and nice. We ate salmon salads and grilled salmon with baked potatoes and vegetables. It was very good and fresh, just a small step from being excellent. Will visit again!

A very pleasant cafe with good service. The food was fresh, varied and of a high standard. The location is also very cozy, along a little cobbled road. The staff there were great with my 10 month old daughter, providing a high chair and also bringing her food early/quickly to prevent her having smelt down (she was really hungry). The... More

I went there on a rainy evening and disputed having to sit outside as there is minimal seating inside, I had a lovely time! Great food at a decent price and the waitresses were friendly! A main meal and a glass of wine came to 15 Euros! Would definitely recommend!

We ate here on a Saturday night at about 10pm. The place was packed, but we got lucky and got a table. We ordered the octopus salad and a couple of pasta dishes. The food was pretty good. Nothing to write home about, but solid. The only thing was how long it took. It was an hour between ordering and... More

The house wine good and cheap and dessert yummy! Great service. Efficient and friendly. We paid €50 for 2 x main, 2 x Dessert, 2 x Coffee, 2 x beer and... More

Friendly staff and good food is what any hungry traveller needs. I enjoyed eating here and would recommend it. I wasn't convinced by my choice. Scallop and pear tagliatelle. It sounded good but I didn't think the flavour matched up to expectation. Our other meals were excellent and the service was quick and helpful.

You see beautiful cakes in the window of the restaurant but it is only allowed to sit down if you order lunch/dinner. Although almost all tables were empty, they did not allowed us to have coffee and cake. 👎 Next day we ate lunch there, it was average. In my food was a hair from the cook so they gave... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Marley & Me. The dishes were very well made with a fine platting. The Capresa salad was with a nice Basil Pesto sauce but too small for the price (almost 9€). The Ravioli with ricotta and gorgonzola and mushrooms was good, even though there was not enough mushrooms. The salmon fillet was spectacular! Very soft... More
