While I love going to restaurants and am often guided by their reviewers, I found myself totally IN LOVE in this place. I've read some negative reviews and can admit that always comes a time when someone is having a bad day - ask chefs and owners. Oh wait! Ask Janez! The thing is, this is one of the best... More

Ambient is very good peaceful, food is good and staff is kind. I tried the great tasting menu and it was very tasty, good looking and for every food they explained us what we are eating. I have spent really nice three hours with my wife there.

Not impressed by the last visit at all, there are so much better restaurant in Ljubljana today and they are really trying to do the best for the guests, seriously what can you expect in the restaurant with the drunk owner/chef?

Seriously? I was expecting a meal beyond all meals. This place is really not very good at all. 7:15PM and we are only people in the place...kind of tells you something. No draft beers,.. no dark beers at all, even in bottle. Hard and unappealing breads. Appetizers were rather odd and tiny with not much flavor other then one had... More

As we wanted to meet some business friends in a most interesting setting where food and atmosphere meet, we were confronted with a major disappointment. Not only was the restaurant too noisy, the restaurant was taken by a group, also the food was not at the expected level. Some of the dishes were served "cold", such as the beef. We... More

Poor and very small portions. Just 1 aged shrimp sold like Fresh Shrimps, 4 pieces of octopus with 3 pea grains sold like Octopus salad, 1/4 of very small Branzini fish .... With kitchen welcome and desert all served in 1 h. Very sterile servis , toiletes are very poor. Never again!

The menu has been prepared by the chef and it has been delighted. Mix of food and vine has been made in the best manner. It is a restaurant for the highest standards. Unfortunately desert and spirit collections are not matching the highest standards of restaurant.

We took the tasting menu and were really disappointed, since it should be in the top 100 restaurants in the world. We started with the marinated pig head, but the mustard was completely overpowering the dish. The next dish were ravioli, that were fine, but forgettable. The main dish were beef cheeks, my partner enjoyed them, but the grilled endive... More
