“Nice Restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

We visited the Spajza while in Ljubljana based on Tripadviser advice. It was good, but not great, as we anticipated. Prices are higher than most restaurants in the region, and while the dishes were OK I would not say they are great value.

“Unusual and Outstanding Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Tired of sausage? How about horse, venison, or rabbit and an all-local wine list. You can ask the waiter to choose excellent local wines by the glass. I had the gnocchi with morel mushrooms in a nettle sauce which was excellent and beautifully presented. They make it a point to use local foods. Because it was in season, we had wild asparagus.

“One of the best restaurants in Ljubljana”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

We visited Cajna hisa in May 2014 for an early evening dinner. The restaurant is in a very picturesque part of the town, just down the end of the main pedestrian street of Ljubljana. Try their house wine, which is delicious and incredibly cheap. The prices are high for the Ljubljana standards (but much lower than the European average for a good restaurant) but service is really good and the atmosphere distinctive and cosy.

“Intimate, local, and comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

All foodies should visit Ljubljana. Two nights here have resulted in two of the best meals and best service I have had. Spajza was a wonderful restaurant with an intimate, but not stuffy feeling. Žiga was our waiter. He was probably the best waiter we have ever had....and we have been to the best restaurants around the world. We asked him to simply bring us the best of each course and to pair wines with the food. It was an incredible experience. He explained each course and then each wine to perfection...including the type of wood barrel used it the wine maturation. All was fabulous.
