What a great location! You can sit outside overlooking the river and enjoy fresh fish from the market next door and really low prices. There were 6 of us who had varying dishes which varied from the sublime [octopus salad, salmon roasted in honey, tuna with peppercorns and polenta] to the bland [fried fillets]. Sit outside for the best atmosphere.

The Ribca is just a few steps far from the 3bridges, so in the very heart of the city. It is located under the street level, so you have to know where to go and go down a few steps, but then it is bright, clean and warm. I was there with friends and we had the Ribca special (for 2 ppl), as we wanted to try as much as possible. For 12euros we had a plate with 4 different types of fishes (squids, sardines, soles and the fried small ones) plus 2 sides. The service was fast and nice.
At the end we were really full and everything was fresh and abundant.
Definitely recommment Ribca!!

Cheap and cheerful but nothing special. Good choice of daily menus and offers but not the best fish around.

We had lunch (we wanted to, actually), but we were served an old and stinky red snapper, its smell was so disgusting, that we just had to complain about it and we were said it is kind of "normal". We love fish, we eat fish really often, and we knew this was not "normal"! I just couldn't eat it...the "funny" thing is that we were charged the whole meal, so we paid 17,00 eur for a horrible service and food, I'm not coming back there! Too bad, as they have a great location, during this hot summer they have a nice temperature, you are close to the river and everything's nice...except for this kind of situations and especially the attitude of their employees.

We went here for lunch on a day trip to Ljubljana. They had a very cheap 3 course lunch menu available as well as a standard menu, which was very reasonably priced as well. We ordered from the main menu. Service was friendly and quick. Food was excellent, well cooked and good sized portions. Also a great location, right by the river. Would definitely go back and recommend it.
