We have visited Mak on our wayfrom Austria and we had an unexpected great surprise. We were three families with teenage kids and we were expecting usual lunch. What we have received was something completely different. Led by chef, we had several course meal with superb combinations of tastes, textures and combinations of ingredients that inspired all our seances. Our... More

Big surprise!!! Small Slovenian town with a unique restaurant. Tasteful, delicious, full of surprises in taste and service. Chef/ owner keeps you on your tows the entire evening. The anticipation is even more exiting than the food itself. And what a food!!! Drinks are exquisite and plentiful. Gladly paid high price and looking forward for our next visit.

We have been talking about eating here for such a long time, but since the price was always to much to handle, we were putting off the visit. I realise that it is still way cheaper than simmilar restaurants in other countries, but it is not on a budget. Anyways, we finnaly felt confortable to go there. We went for... More

It is one of those restaurants, where you get to be treated like a king. All I can say is that I've never had a better service and more courses for the price in my life. If you consider yourself as a person who likes to explore something new in the gourmet world, this is a must visit, the restaurant... More

You are welcomed inside the restaurant and then it starts. A constant stream of delicious small dishes with a story. And each dish spot on. All kinds of flavours harmonically combined. A culinairy ..gasm. Let's do the last course again... not possible we must proceed with the next one...*sigh* Splendid food

One of the best restaurant I tried. It's not only a dinner, it's a culinary experience. Both the owner David and the waitress are very professional and nice. the dinner was 10 courses, every dish was explained how it's made and how to eat it. The food is simply amazing. Highly recommended.

Unique, delicious food served with panache and a sense of theatre. There's no menu, you arrive sit at your table and the event begins. We had around 18 dishes and drank several different local wines. All explained with great knowledge and passion. It really is difficult to describe adequately but it was an amazing experience. It's not cheap but it's... More

If you want to taste perfection on a plate defintly you have to go visit this restaurant! For business lunch you take an hour and a half time for a complete culinary pampering will need approximately 3 hours. Pleasure and Satisfaction Guaranteed!

The food at Mak is special, nothing pretentious here, but stylish well thought out courses of delicious flavours. Mak can manage any special likes (or dislikes) and find a personally taylored to your requests. The whole family enjoyed this meal (including our 7 and 11 year olds) and whilst the food is not cheap it is worth every cent. Expect... More

excellent slow food restaurant, but reservations only (!). although rather new (opened in 2011?), it has already been named in the selection of best Slovenian restaurants. http://www.gurman.eu/index.php?S=1&Article=189&Folder=24&S=1
