We had a great time at Gostilna na Gradu! The food is delicious, relatively modern but with a clear Slovenian background, all in all I think a must do for anyone who wants to know what's going on in Slovenian cuisine these days. The service...More

I had a great time in that castle, but not in this restaurant! The waitress seemed had some issues with Asian customers, I felt ignored and kept waiting! And she said "I can not understand your English". I don't know how to express my anger...More

We went for lunch. My starter, cabbage salad, proved inedible, at least to my taste. It came as shredded cabbage drowned in a "soup" of sesame oil. Both of us ordered the roast lamb as a main dish. The generous portion of meat was tasteless,...More

Gostilna Na Gradu is in the castle courtyard. The decor is a mix of old castle artifacts and modern like the castle. We went with a group, the food and service were excellent. Normally I would avoid any restaurant in a monument for anything more than a hot dog at the time of famine. This one is run by the couple that own Hisa Franko near Kobarid. Ana Ros is a gifted chef. More on that with my review of Hisa Franko. (The food is Slovenian and not really Croatian. In this part of the world, wars have been fought over less!
