“Interesting experience”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

From the narrow street the restaurant looks quite small. Inside through several rooms you then arrive in the pretty courtyard garden. This restaurant clearly takes pride in providing uniquely Slovenian dishes and excellent service. We opted for the option that brought five courses each served with a different wine. It was a good way of experiencing new tastes and made for an interesting and memorable eating experience. It was quite expensive but we were glad we had found it.

“Very Good”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We went on the recommendation of our hotel. It was great. The courtyard is the place to go - dont be put off when you walk through the retsaurant and there is no one in it. Food across the board was very good and the service excellent. Seving generous and a good range of choices. Also made a good G&T.

“Amazing food, superb service”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Six of us went to dinner following a recommendation from a friend. We were seated outside in a beautiful courtyard, lovely surroundings.

Each of us tried the degustation menu, there was a choice of either a fish based or meat based menu of six courses for €35. The food was just amazing.

The waiting staff were superb, very friendly, knowledgable and made some great wine suggestions. We were presented a few additional amuse bouche courses, and complimentary grappa and port and the end of our meal.

One of the best meals I've had in a very long time. If you're in Ljubljana then I highly recommend a visit.

“Totally sublime experience”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

A party of six sat in the garden 4 fish 2 meat menus. The waiter was awesome - took us through the course with a selection wines that complimented the meal beautifully.

Truffles, horse cheek, gnocchi and the most amazing pineapple and tomato mousse for desert accompanied with a desert wine to top off.

A grappa and port and we had spent 4hrs and less than €100 a head

Totally superb - well worth a visit if you are in Ljubljana any time soon.

“Don't go when there is a group”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We went without reservations as recomended by our hotel personel. It wasn't a problem. We got in, though were seated indoors on a pretty hot night, The staff was gracious, but......... because of a large group, they simply couldn't handle getting out the orders for the whole group and others. We wound up waiting an hour between each course. The saving grace was that the food was excellant.
