By my opinion the best Slovenian restaurant so far. Charismatic chef Tomaž Kavčič and his team are making longliving stories. Comparable with 2M stars worldwide. A must gastronomic visit.

Zemono is one of the best locations for a restaurant. A manor house stands on the top of a little hill with vineyards and main road close to the hill. Restaurant has some tables in a dark inner room and some are outside (in summer). Don’t go just inside, walk around the building to see the view. Food is usually... More

We orderd the menu where you get 5-8 different dishes and believe me at the end you are full...of food and amazing sensations. The food is delicious and served in the way you have not seen before. And the price? 60€ + wine, per person. Worth traying! Once per year, everybody deserves to be treated as queen or king! :)

Wow - what an incredible place! A 40ish-minute drive from Ljubljana, Zemono absolutely delivers a quality of experience on par with any two- or even three-star restaurant in the Michelin guide (at least among the ones I've tried). The setting itself is idyllic, a beautiful villa on a hill overlooking a lush valley on all sides. The building itself has... More

We've visited the restaurant for a fixed menu experience and we were enchanted by the ambient, the warmth of the reception all throughout the service, the attentive guidance of Tomaž Kavčič to each and every guest table side, their attention to food, the creativity involved and the exquisite flavours. Only, maybe they should hire a chef du patisserie.

I found it interesting but maybe coz I am not used to eat in restaurants like this. A lot of show, nice for eyes witch I think is important, food was delicious too, I liked it but as I said I don't really know because it was my first time like this.

Everything was awesome! Food was fantastic, wonderful tastes and presentation, friendly staff and chef - he came to every table several times and asked about food. Will add some pictures, cause words can't describe it. Every dish was great, exept for desserts, me and my boyfriend both agreed that they were good but not great. But still exellent!
