“Excellent Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

The food we had was excellent. The Pork Tenderloin was tender and the sauce was superb. We also had the Kranjlka Sausage both served with grilled vegetables. Service was good but not warm, prices seemed a little on the high side.

“Slovenian and beyond good food and wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Waiters dress in the national costume; they are friendly and multi-lingual. Though the restaurant specializes in Slovenian food I went for something more conventional and ordered (a local!) grilled trout and it was excellent; for E-10.00 i got a whole trout that was so well done the skin fell off and the meat came away easily in flakes. My wife, a more discerning palate than I had to have some of it. Half a bottle of the Western Slovenian Merlot rounded off our meal, though we had to admit that the Chilean Merlot from back home in the States tastes better.

“GREAT food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

A 10 minute walk from the Slon hotel we discovered the Sokol restaurant. After travelling around for 2 weeks eating a lot of great fish and pasta, our stomachs were growling for some good hearty meat dishes. Sokol delivered what we were craving.
Details: Game plate-wonderful
Mushroom soup-yum
Onion soup-not a french onion style, heavy broth, and very deep flavors, making it delicious.
Veal Stew-not a stew in the traditional American sense, as it had a light broth base and very big hunks of veal and a few vegetables. Tasty just not what I expected.
White house wine is a good value, homemade beer available.
Outside seating is nice option

“Really enjoyed our meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

Hotel recommended this place to us for local cuisine. Sat outside which was pleasant, can see why some people might think of it as a tourist trap but we didn't have any problems. We chose a mixed meat platter and a stew and both were really good, price was reasonable. Waiters not overly friendly but efficient.

“Nice cool spot, I guess that Slovenians aren't known for their food... Or service.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

We were recommended this place by our accommodation. Don't bother. Rude waiter who didn't want a bar of us when we decided to share one if the most expensive (and largest) meals on the menu. Food ended up being dry and the sauce was horrible. Would not recommend. Nice cool spot though..
