When I went to Hisa Franko I already had this preconceived expectation of a phenomenal moment that I was about to have. Then I tasted the first dish and realized that Chef Ana Ros had just sent my taste buds on a adventurous journey through stunning flavor combinations that left me in awe. I walked away from the table a... More

Staff and owners very professional but friendly, relaxed despite the place being upmarket. You feel at ease all the time. Food is superb, really rich tastes, matched with just the right wines. We also had a massage prior to the dinner - a highly recommendable experience, masseurs are experts. Room was ok, I appreciated a quality mattress. Breakfast was another... More

We had seen the Chefs table episode on Netflix and decided to visit Kobarid as we were planning a trip to Slovenia this summer. We had the 9 course meal and all of them were really innovative and delicious. Especially the squid and the dessert with elderflower jelly was amazing! Don't go to Slovenia without going here! It's a short... More

Had a very nice dinner with 5 courses. The food was excellent and interesting at the same time. Altough the first course with snails in herbs and garden plants was a little bit boring. Fun to drink tw slovenian wines to it. They were very good. The atmosphere sitting outside in the countryside brought with it the smell of farms... More

Our entire trip to Slovenia was based on going to dinner at Hisa Franko. We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and fortunately got to have dinner the Sunday night we arrived (restaurant is closed on Mon/Tues). We were not disappointed at all! The chef Ana's non-chef background was surprising as her food was refined, beautiful, interesting, and delicious!... More

After watching Netflix's Chef's Table Season 2, the hubs and I decided to take a trip to Slovenia to visit Hisa Franko (since it was only a 3.5 hours drive away). The restaurant has a warm home-like appeal with coral pink wall colors. We made the reservation around lunch time. Once we got seated, we got the starters - warm... More

Fantastic. Great food. Great wine. Great service. Here with a group of eight and all of us enjoyed the meal tremendously. Traveled from Oregon to be here especially for this food. It is made with "soul" and "heart".

Hisa Franko came highly recommended to us, so we had great expectations. Coming from a professional culinary background we were excited to finally find some amazing food in Slovenia that would be flavorful, with attentive service and flair. But our expectations were too high. The chef is obviously an artist and cares a lot about her food, but the pairings... More

Finally we had a dinner at Hisa Franko for my dearest's birthday and we weren't dissapointed - the opposite is true, we were delighted. The 9 course menu was fabulous, wines suggested by our waiter excellent and the room with the large terrace we stayed in was also great. Next week we watched Chef's table episode about Ana Roš and...

Overall this was a very pleasant and interesting dining experience. Two set menus are offered; a 5 course at €70 and a 9 course at €90. We thought that we might as well go for it and opted for the 9 course. Along with the usual Michelin-type restaurant 'freebie' amuse Bouche and post dessert petit fours that was 11 dishes... More
