This restaurant serves fantastic food in a very relaxed environment. Most of the recipes are based on traditional slovenian dishes but with a modern twist, which, however, does not take any of their initial taste away! Must visit!

The best meal I had during my 4 month stay in Eastern Europe. We stopped by during a visit to the castle, charmed by the beautiful location and big glass windows with a view on the castle courtyard. The service is extremely attentive and high class. The menu is not extensive however what we ordered was perfectly cooked. I had... More

I took my family for dinner at Gostilna na gradu for my birthday. We had the degustation menu - a walk around Slovenia, and every single dish we got was delicious, beautifully presented, well balanced, superb! Their wine list made me wish I didn't have to drive home. The one wine I tasted (Blaž, 2006) was very very good. The... More

Dining within the castle used to be reserved for only those with true privilege and wealth, but now a simple visit to Ljubljana Castle, with a stop by Gostilna Na Gradu will make you feel like the richest and most culinarily astute in the city. Mixing years of traditional Slovenian cuisine, recipes handed down from master to apprentice, with modern... More

The quality of the food is amazing and the location at Ljubljana Castle superb, the only atmosphere better in my opinion (location-wise) is at Strelec, when in the neighbourhood, but Na Gradu is price-wise friendlier. Really nice staff. The lava cake is to die for, and the main dishes are well worth the money. All in all I recommend the... More

One-liner: Good value restaurant right in the heart of the castle LOCATION Located right within the inner walls of the castle, this restaurant provides a great environment. The walk is a challenge, however there is a small funicular railway carriage to transport you there for a few Euros. The decor and furniture is to a very high standard. SERVICE The... More

Excellent fusion of past and modern materials create extraordinary atmosphere in the castle restaurant. As expected the dishes were on a high level of quality visually and of course also from the quality. Great old school slowenian menus with a touch of modern cuisine. Excellent and professional service, always there when you need it. Will surely come back.

Thank saso m

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!
