“Exceptional in all ways....”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

It was a cold and rainy evening, the restaurant was so inviting...charming and small. They only have one wine menu! Once you are seated, the magic begins. The charming young waitress is knowledgeable about the food and wines and how to pair them...good start....she suggested we enjoy the chef's surprise menu and enjoy we did! Delicate spices blending in mouthwatering combinations....my partner had an appetizer that came with a plate covering it. We removed the plate and this smoky, aromatic steam billowed out...the shrimp inside were tender and smoky...what a delicious treat! The cuttlefish ink ravioli...oh!!!!! From the pumpkin soup to the pistachio ice cream...perfect! Loved the experience!

“Unbelievable Experience”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

This was our last dinner of our 10 day vacation and probably our best. The vibe was upscale and seemed more city-like than alpine village-like, but it still had a cozy feel. It's a French influenced menu and it appears that it changes daily. They recommend a prix fixe dinner, but you can get a la carte. Wife just got a meal and I got the prix fixe, which comes with 2 appetizers, 1 entree, and a dessert. I had a smoked tuna appetizer, which was served while still smoking. Good. Can't recall the other. They also serve complimentary french bread with fresh sliced prosciutto. For entrees, we had the turbot in bouillabaisse sauce and the veal back special. Both were outstanding and the veal was served with white truffle mashed potatoes, which were incredible. The dessert was so unique, but delicious...buckwheat ice cream with passion fruit creme brulee. The wine list was solid and service decent. There were fireworks outside when we were there, which just gave the perfect end to a great meal. It's expensive for Bled, but paled in comparison to anything in Venice or Dubrovnik. Reservations weren't necessary

“Good French”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

If u are looking for a good French Restaurant for 40 Euro pp with wine it's a good place.
Slow but good service.You don't choose the menu.The host choose for you the menu so everything including the price is a surprise.

“Good food but poor service”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Good food, poor service
We had planned a simple dinner after a day of hiking but every place we liked was full and after reading the reviews of this restaurant we dicided to give it a try. I have to admit we weren’t dressed for upscale dining but we looked fairly nice. After being seated it took forever for someone to take our order and get us some drinks. The waitress was pretty rude in the beginning and we even thought of leaving because of that, but I was tired and hungry so we stayed. Food was good but they messed up our order serving my husband the wrong starter. 

Although the food was good I wouldn’t recommend the place, for these prices you should get good food and good service.

Dear guest,

Thank you for your review regarding your experience at our Gourmet Restaurant Promenada. We do get very good comments about it so I was a bit surprised when reading it. The food we serve often gets best possible reviews.

We have changed one of our service staff members lately (I believe the one you are writing about) as we also weren't satisfied with her services. Of course I also believe that the waiters should follow the high food standards of the restaurant.

I am sorry if we haven't met your expectations and still hope that you visit us again.

Sincerely yours,
SAVA HOTELS BLED

“High quality food @ reasonable prices”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

We ate here as it was the nearest restaurant to our hotel, Park Hotel, due to the bad weather on our first evening in Lake Bled. They had an offer of 3 courses for 29euro per person. The waiter was very professional and offered us choices of wine to complement our food.
I had lobster with noodles to start, followed by a main of pike perch with veg. with a dessert of chocolate souffle with cardoman and mango ice cream... delicious. My girlfriend began with a parnish puree, followed by some lamb cutlets and finished with a peach pie - she was also pleased (but not with the salmon in her starter!). Highly recommended. Everything (meals, 2 glasses of wine each & 1 coffee) came to 80euro. We had a look at the set menu the next day but it had'nt changed so we ate elsewhere.
