Extremely bad service, we waited more than half an hour for a drink in an almost empty restaurant. But when you ask the waiter after an hour if you could order something to eat (even though it was already agreed in advance that we would...eat), he almost killed us with his look. Absolutely no advice from the wait staff, so my colleague only got poultry without any side dish (we could have warned him), Because he only saw when he was served that he didn't get a side dish, he only ordered it then, and he didn't get it until 40 minutes later. Shame on Jezerške and Ljubljana.More

The place is quite large, but we have been there on Tuesday when there are no special events. There are several choices of beers, but local beers are recommended. The food is good, maybe a bit small quantity.

Don't think too much, just act! Go and visit Pivnica Union! Best experience ever! After the visit just take taxi or walk to your appartment, Ljubljana is small and everything is just behind the corner! :-)

Everything changes, only the bad habits in the pub remain the same. You still have to ask to be served, even if only a few tables are full. But when they are in a hurry to clean up, because it will close in half an...hour, they take a glass with a few sips of beer in front of your nose. It seems that you are trying to drive guests away with unfriendliness! Thank God at least the beer is goodMore

Union Pub is a great spot for lunch and walking distance far from the city centre. We did the Union Experience, which was leb by Ana, who was friendly, personable and very knowledgeable! The experience was brilliant and included VR, a walk round the museum...showing the history of the brewery, along with a competition. This was all rounded up with a tasting at the end. We had the opportunity to try four of the Union beers, which went down an absolute treat. Thanks to Ana for a great tour! Absolutely recommend this experience if you have a couple of hours to spare. We had lunch in the pub afterwards, and it didn't disappoint! We had the 360° Burger and it was cooked to perfection and oozing with cheese. The staff were friendly and efficient. Absolutely recommend Union Pub if you're in the area.More

Excellent beer And The best burger In Town! I mean what The freaking heck was this? Why wasn’t this listed anywhere as the best burger in town I Will never understand. We tried unfiltered beer And lager - cold, clean glass, cold beer with The...right smell And Jezeršek 360 ° burger was absolutely (And we have many great burgers In Bratislava) delicious 🔥 brioche light as it can be, juicy meat done perfect, delish sauce, Brie cheese twist, fresh salad and crunchy pickled red onion. Simple and perfect!!!! And those fries were fresh, looked like home made and the mayo with them was very yummy. Recommend ❤️More

What an excellent and dog-friendly pub!!! Extremely nice staff! Heavenly delicious beef steak and fish&chips! Union beer is number one, especially with your fresh yummy pretzels! Cool, modern place, everything is spotlessly clean, staff is friendly and professional. Super music! We can hardly wait to...come back! 💚❤️🐾🍻More

I went to Union Pivnica after 3 years and I was totally dissapointed. 1. they did not have unfiltered beer. 2. the waiter was like in another world, not interested to serve us food or beer and pub was not even half full... and we...were good table in pub with 7 people. 3. Food was terrible: Fried chicken taste was awful...like only half fried. ... Chicken wings taste was like it was prepared in the morning and warmed up before it was served to us... Roast meat totally dry like it was some leftovers from some other client and only warmed up.... the only acceptable food was burger and fried cauliflower.... We went out of Pub totally dissapointed 🙃🙃🙃 I hope all of the above written was only because in pub they had a very bad day.More

Food was not possible to get as main chef quit job allthough almost every table had food on it. Nobody seemed to care. A waiter found out that it is not his fault and try to convience us that for a pub it is enough...only to have drinks. They are selling themselves as one of best restaurants in Ljubljana. Gostinstvo Jezeršek as manager of the place should do better. As citizen of Ljubljana and pretty regular guest I am extremly dissapointed. Shame.More

We wanted to try the local beer and watch some soccer and found this place. Lovely patio. The service was great! The server was so nice to go over the menu for us (so we didn’t have to attempt to translate it all). The beers...were good. The food was really good. Best sweet potato fries i have had in a long time! The flatbread was huge and interesting combo of ingredients. I would be happy to visit again next time I’m in Ljubljana.More

I had so much fun! During the museum visit (which is breathtaking and has all the machines from the beginning of the brewery) we had a small competition and had to answer questions and find caps around the brewery which made the museum visit interacting...and fun! Masa O. and Lucia told us everything we needed to know while being so nice and welcoming. They communicated with us in a really nice way so everything was clear and not one question stayed unanswered. I would definitely visit this place again. 1000/10, would recommend it to everyone who enjoys beer. :)More

You should call or e-mail them, because Fridays can be very busy. Otherwise, I think you shouldn't have any problems booking a table for 12. Try calling them, too. Have a nice celebration!
