I've eaten in Marley&me several times and in a couple of weeks ago my mother celebrated her birthday so I called to the restaurant and asked if they are willing to make a vegan dinner for three. I was pleasantly surprised how smoothly everything went - the cook made everything especially for us: raw lasagna as a starter and then the main, zucchini filled with mushrooms and porridge and an excellent side-salad with pears, walnuts and tasty lemon-orange sauce. The food was amazing!! We were so happy with creativity of the cook! The extra-nice owner (Me) treated us with champagne (on the house) and vegan desserts (he put a candle on my mother's mango cake). Our family had a lovely evening in Marley&me and is recommending everyone to give it a chance. :)

We read all the Trip Advisor reviews and thought, yeah great, lets go. We didn't go for any of the lunchtime specials but for an evening meal. We found the wines very expensive and opted for the house wine which was fine, but rather small. We were presented with the menu and to our amazement, there were NO starters. Yes a restaurant that don't serve starters. Anyway after getting over the shock, we ordered a main. It was well presented but the vegetables we almost raw, and there was merely enough for my cat, let alone a hungry guy who had been walking all day. In a nutshell, very small portions, undercooked food, very average interior and very surprised this is top rated!!!! Would not return i'm afraid.

We were genuinely sad that any of our guests could have left the restaurant so unsatisfied. We welcome all feedback good or critical and have always been forthcoming in offering replacement or alternative dishes if a guest is not happy but they do need to let us know!
We are simply a small restaurant with a single aim-to make our guests happy, and we shall continue to do our best as best we know how.

Lovely little bistro style restuarant. Super food and great service, even when we arrived late in the evening. There are many restaurants to choose from in Ljubljana, choose this one and you won't be disappointed.
(In case you're interested the owner was reading the book at the time he was looking for a name for his restaurant).

The name might be off putting if you have seen the film, but don't let this distract you - do come in and enjoy great wines, yummy food, friendly and knowledgable service. What a lovely and cozy restaurant! We went for the daily specials - pumpkin soup, lamb with thyme sauce and salmon with honey mustard sauce. The lamb was cooked to perfection, in fact it was one of the best roasted lambs i've ever eaten. The waiter recommended a lovely local wine, which we now buy to drink at home. Will be back very soon.

With my friends, as recommended by tripadvisor, we decided to go to this place for an early dinner. As we arrived early the place was empty, but later on it became very busy. The first impression of the place was great, cozy, warm, friendly stuff. We decided to go for the pumpkin soup that was excellent. For the main dish we had Kranjska sausage (traditional dish) and Pork rolled in prosciutto in the capers sauce with baked polenta and veggies. The group that had the sausage was very pleased with the meal (the price of it is reasonable), as the second group had complaints that the dish was too dry, but that it was tasteful. For the desert some had the chocolate cake and were extremely happy with it. The portions are ok.
