Top resturant in ljubljana castle. They have a glass terrace and it is great to eat there. Traditional food on a modern way.

The restaurant is beautifully set in the Ljubljana castle. They serve good traditional food and good local wines. Prices are relatively low given the quality of food and the location. It's not a tourist trap as one might imagine, staff is very friendly.

After touring the castle, we were able to secure an outdoor table at the restaurant. The menu had pages of local Slovenian foods from starters to desserts. We decided to have a light salad and enjoy the out of doors. It was incredibly windy with...More

Pros: food quality, service, location Cons: location (long stroll up the hill) I ordered pasta filled with potato ('žlikrofi'), lamb ragout. A bowl arrived and first few sips seemed nothing special. After a while the flavor kicked in. I ate all the heavy stuff but...More

We stumbled upon this gem by accident. While visiting Ljubljana Castle there were several restaurants within the city walls. We didn't know this but there was going to be a movie preview that evening and preparations were being made. We walked up to Gostilna Na...More

Gostilna is nice restaurant for a dinner for two. Inner space is divided it two parts. More interesting is a glass room with open look to the terrace. Inner part is too noisy, sometimes with very loud groups. Food is simply good. They serve something...More

Great food but I was shocked by the bill, it was the most expensive meal we had on our entire European trip. The views were good, service impeccable, but in hindsight we could have had three meals beside the river for the same price.

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!
