“Eat here before they realise they could be charging more!! Ate here twice in 2 days.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

First visited for dinner and had one of their fantastic crust trio pizzas (far more fancy than it sounds), and a *HUGE* tuna salad. We also received complimenatry starters of wild garlic soup which was beautiful, and they brought us crushed chocolate at the end. The surroundings are lovely and indicative of somewhere much more expensive. Dinner for two (without alcohol) cos us EUR 25. The service was great. So Happy we revisted for lunch with 2 friends a day later. Would not hesitate to recommend this place, and dread to think how much the equivalent would cost in London!

“The Place to Go for a Great Caesar Salad in Ljubljana”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

We have had lunch here a couple times, and it has always been excellent. Although not in the least expensive category, for 10 or 11 Euros you get a very high quality lunch menu of salad or soup, entree, and dessert. The Caesar salad is very generous in size, with good grilled chicken and croutons. Service is attentive and polite. The atmosphere is sleek, with lots of nice tables on scenic Kongressni Trg (Square). If you are coming for a business lunch, no problem. They will get you in and out so you can get back to work on time.

“Best Tapas and Service in Slovenia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

This bistro in Kongresrti Trg was very special for its quality, service, range of food and prices. We found this bistro by accident but like others have said, we had to go back a second time it was so good. We had two plates of tapas (6 tapas per serve) and five drinks for just 40Eur. The second visit we tried a la carte, and the meal was still only 80Eur, we were not disappointed. The decor and friendly, knowledgable staff made our evenings a delight. Travellers know that when you find a good eatery, mark it down. This bistro is a very good eatery, so mark it down.

“Lovely lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

We had a quick lunch with 5 choices from their daily menu, all at €10.80 for large green salad, main and dessert. We had an good risotto with fresh calamari and cherry tomatoes, and octopus 'burgers' on sautéed new potatoes and spring onions. Both mains were great, followed by a small formula pud of sachertorte, fresh strawberry and cream. A good value, simple lunch; chic, busy environment and we enjoyed our visit. We will definitely return.

“Makes a big splash ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Classy, chic, very popular, with good food and sweets, but prices are high compared to many less image-conscious alternatives. If you like would prefer to feel that you are in Western Europe, this is the place.
