The food is prepared by differently-abled and other vulnerable people. It's a great initiative. The breakfast is delicious and nutritious at a decent price.

Superb lunch. I enjoyed a wonderful rustic meatloaf with a tagliatelle and broccoli topped with a tasty tomato sauce whilst my companion's leek pie and salad looked delicious. Gut busting grub at really reasonable prices. Nice people friendly service

We are following teh principles of SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP. Gostilna dela is a charming little restaurant providing LOCAL EXPERIENCE. We offer delicious breakfast and lunches, to satisfy meat, fish and vegetarian lovers. The food is FRESH, HEALTHY and prepared from an open plan kitchen. Food and drinks are prepared and served by YOUTH who have not finished formal education and young people with disability. They are trained to become more employable. Recently we have spiced up our restaurant with REUSED collection of cups, plates and glasses. We are located just a few steps from a Central Market and Ljubljana Castle Funicular.
