Taking well care by Greger,with excellent food & drinks, I high recommend second try again. Since we always live under air conditioner, sitting outside will be advantagous。

Based on our previous great experience, we thought we would try Gostilna XXI again, and I was absolutely disappointed with my meal. I had the chicken breast with a balsamic and dried tomato sauce served with "štruklji" (cheese dumplings). The chicken itself was unseasoned and was very tough on the thin bits and under-done on the thick bits, while the... More

We enjoyed our meal here. Portions were large and prices reasonable, though the service was leisurely and could have been friendlier. The restaurant is close to the centre of Ljubljana but far enough away to avoid crowds if tourists. The food here is not fancy but I recommend checking this out if you want to sample a filling Slovenian meal.

Gostilna XXI has always had very high ratings on Trip Advisor, but we somehow managed to never get there. However, when we finally did, we found that it definitely lived up to the high scores. We went for supper and while we enjoyed the food (chicken with mash, pork with roast potatoes), we agreed that the chicken was the better... More

The service was good and helpful when choosing,there was also live music,if you like jazz that is The food was tasty and plenty of... More

Very nice atmosphere with good wine selection an affordable menues for this quality kind-of-a-slowfood restaurant. They even have a piano inside, and I was lucky enough to come on a LP etno band night, and what a vibe it was!

We had here a good lunch, eating a pork tenderloin with mashed potatoes, which was really good! The rest of the menu is Italian style for the most, but it is all good cooked and tasty. It is not so elegant, but you can have a good friendly time here. We payed 20€ each.

If you are looking for Slovene food with Mediterranean touch go to XXI. They make all sorts of food and drinks themselves: homemade pasta,homemade ice-tea, brownie with vanilla source and seasonal goodies (e.g. fried "umbrella" mushrooms with potato salad). Relaxed restaurant for lunch with affordable lunch menu or for dinner a la carte. Most of the sitting is inside, in... More

The food was to die for, the friendliness of the staff was outstanding. Being 7000 km from home they make you feel like you are right at home. Great selection of wine and and even better home made brew of beer. Plenty of cool schnapps to try also. over all excellent experience have been back multiple times on our way... More
