The food was very good, smallish portions very well presented. Nice modern decor if a trifle sterile. Waiter we had was at great pains to demonstrate his knowledge of food, wines etc. etc. etc. He did not impress us hugely but some people might enjoy being educated whilst they dine! All in all, I'd say its worth a visit.

The menu looks great, but the food is average and expensive. I was there with my wife 3 times and we always waited longer than average for a meal. Follow the recommendations they give you as they are best choice of the day.

It's not often I go to a restaurant twice in two nights (in fact I can only think of one other time this has occurred), but we were only in Ljubljana for three nights - and we ate here twice. It was really, really good.

Yes it is a bit fancy, and yes the prices will reflect that, but it's most certainly not over the top. And while the decor was lovely, the ambiance just right, the food cooked well, and the variety of dishes offered are excellent (they do seem to like their foie gras and truffles here, but hey - I like truffles), the thing that really makes this restaurant go from a very good experience to a great one - is the staff.

The staff were absolutely brilliant. We loved our experience with them so much the first night, that we came back on the second for the New Years Eve meal. And we weren't disappointed. They also know their wine. Give them a go. You'll enjoy it.

This is not your traditional slovenian cuisine. This restaurant is more what you would find in NY. The service was excellent, very professional. The food of high quality, and somewhat pricey. The food came to the table looking beautiful, more nouvelle.
