When you see the romantic island, old castle and Relais Chateau plaque and five stars, you expect a lot. Waiters are kind and they serve fast (place was nearly unoccupied). Food was above the average but prices were not average. They are high for the quality of furniture and inner decoration of the place. Look at menu list first.

When I was checking the area of Novo Mesto in Slovenia, Otocec Castle immediately caught my eye, as castles are always on the top of a list of my visits. It was surprising, that there is also Restaurant and Hotel located in the Castle, what made my visit even more interesting. I did reservation as soon as possible, which was... More

We always try to stop here for lunch during our travels around these parts. And so far we haven't been disappointed once! Fantastic fresh food , good selection of local wines, knowledgeable staff. We'll keep coming back.

In a haven of peace where the spirit of the past blends marvellously with the rhythm of modern life, Otočec Castle offers an atmosphere that has retained its character and authenticity. This unique castle is on an island right in the middle of Krka River.

The only reason I gave 4 to this restaurant is that it is too formal. Everything is on the too high level, so that you do not feel relaxed. However, the food is delicius, the servis is perfect, the place is very intersting in some historical castle.

Made the reservation with a very capable hotel hostess and were welcomed by one of the best waiters we had ever had at our table. Spoke his languages fluently and could... More

If you do not have time for a full meal, this is a wonderful place to stop during a drive. Or make a special outing. Service is friendly even if you only want coffee or tea and a cake. Large assortment of baked good and puddings. Recommend the gribanica: thin pastry with layers of apple, fresh cheese and black poppy... More
