The 11 course tasting menu was a memorable experience, especially with the accompanying 7 Slovenian wines. Delicious! It’s best to book a room upstairs, so you don’t have to drive. I just read that they’re now listed in the Top 50 restaurants in the world!

Hisa Franko is to food what high fashion is to clothing. It takes you to another realm with it's creativity and imaginative combinations. The 8 course (I think) tasting menu offered beautifully presented and tasty samplings. Bread was fantastic and plentiful, or you would leave...More
