Traditional looking restaurant on main tourist trail so probably doesn't have to try very hard, which was the overall impression. Offhand service and expensive menu, especially compared to others. Veal steak chewy, a difficult feat to achieve. Accompanying truffle mash tasted mainly of garlic, rather than the flavoursome fungus. Apple strudel apparently microwaved with deleterious effect. Atmospheric, but Julija appears to be resting on its laurels.

Excellent food, great atmosphere and verry friendly staff. Situated in the pedestrian zone of Ljubljana it's nice to sit outside and enjoy a great meal.

This place is rightly popular with natives and visitors alike. The food is great, and the menu features many delicious local specialties. The wait staff is friendly and most willing to explain what may be unfamiliar to the visitor.

The staff are very friendly and the restaurant has an upscale but homey feel. Both food and service were very good.

This place was pretty close to perfect. Our family ate at Julja on our second night in Ljubljana and had such a great experience we immediately decided this would be our one "repeat visit" of the week. The atmosphere is casual elegant. We saw plenty of people in jeans out for a Tuesday night meal, as well as couples and families dressed for a special occasion. The menu was, like many others in Slovenia, a blend of Slavic and Italian. My first meal, I enjoyed house-made fettuccine with morel mushrooms and pancetta. When we returned, I went for the beef goulash with polenta. Both were excellent, as is the local wine list. The Teran and Pinot Noir we enjoyed would have cost twice as much in the States.
