We had a filet steak with black truffles and home made pasta with white truffle sauce. Both were absolutely delicious and still well priced. Red wine was rounding up the whole experience! Perfect!

We really had a geat filet on yesterday evening! Porcini mushrooms and meat tartare as starters were delicious. Professional service and a rich bottle of sparkling Rebula completed the dinner. Meat is clearly this restaurant' signature. Just avoid staying too close to the horses fence to avoid after smells. Enjoy!

The location is a bit out of the way as you have to drive 3km through local roads, the ambient is rustic. They mostly serve meat.

This place rock ! If you like nice juicy thick steaks, this place is for you. This is a traditional Slovenian country restaurant, food is very genuine and abundant. The choices are limited, but every single one is amazingly good. Definitely a place to try out if you are in this area. Highly recommended.

We went a bit out of our way to get here following tripadvisors reviews. It was certainly worthwhile! Friendly countryside atmosphere, great attentive service, excellent meat, fair price. Definitely worth a visit!

Visited Mandrija three times...They serve delicious meat dishes. Last time itried costata and veal medallions with black truffles, and they were both above average. Nice location, reasonable prices and specially the waiters and the owner are very friendly. Recommended!

The atmosphere and the food was nothing but wonderful. I love the outdoor area. Great place for families with kids. Good value for money although more expensive than most places in Slovenia.
