Unassuming decor, down a hidden residential street far outweighed by the lovely food. We had a selection of five different starters and main courses and all were full of flavour and beautifully presented. We were pleasantly surprised and would certainly recommend.

As a professional chef of 32 years, it is a delight to experience a restaurant that gets it. Unpretentious, with an atmosphere rarely experienced; conversation may be had. The dishes were prepared with care and expertise with local, fresh ingredients. A true find.

We went to this little place on our first night in Ljubljana and we were not disappointed. It's a little out of the way of the centre which is great! The food was amazing! Service was exceptional! The atmosphere was great! And the prices were very reasonable! Would absolutely recommend this place to anyone!!

We came for a visit from Switzerland. Finding this restaurant was a huge surprise. We had the best food in a long long time there. The basil steak and the chocolate mousse tasted like in a dream. Also the service was awesomely friendly. I cannot only recommend this restaurant but say it is one of the best in all Europe!

Really nice and a little bit away from the traffic streets is this place a must for steak lovers. It's not cheap but the meat of the steak was perfectly tender. The eating rooms are nicely decorated.

Down a nondescript side street and looks nothing special. But the food is delicious, local dishes cooked with local produce. A real delight.

WE visited a quiet evening out of season but during the day it can be crowded. We ordered beef with balsamic and roasted pear and pork in fig sauce with cheese dumplings. The meat and sauces were excellent and the dumplings were so light and the best I have ever tasted. However the pear was too hard and served raw.... More

A wonderful restaurant down a quiet backstreet. Pri Skofu was our favourite restaurant on our trip to Ljubljana. We started with the gnocchi with ramsons and the buckwheat with porcini mushrooms. Both were excellent. The flavours were beautifully balanced and everything tasted very fresh. We then had the beef with truffle sauce and the pork with prunes and dumplings. Again... More

Having eaten at Pri Skofu more than once, i can definitely say that this is one of the best restaurants in Ljubljana. It's tucked away in a small, quiet alley a bit far from the old town, but it's definitely worth searching for. The food is excellent, a mixture of traditional cuisine with a modern touch, the prices are reasonable... More

We tried to book a few places for tonight in the old town but everywhere was booked so we tried a little further out and found this place which was only a couple of streets from our hotel. It was very quiet, only 3 other tables the whole time we were there but it was only a small place. Others... More
