Dinner at Pri Skofu, an out-of-the-way local restaurant that makes its dishes with fresh local ingredients. It has no written menu; you select from the options described by your server. One of our dishes was home-made gnocchi with a cream truffle sauce that was outstanding. The server suggested a glass of wine with with each of the three courses. We split a dessert and the meal came to about $85 for the two of us. The restaurant was worth the effort to find it, which did require a car.

Just spent a week in Ljublana, this restaraunt came recommended and was quite close to our appartment.


What a find - great service, very reasonable price, great food....we went 3 times enjoying steak (tender, well cooked- we asked for rare and got rae, lvoely sauces), gnocchi (best ever), salads (really fresh and tender - ask for pumpkin seed oil) and wonderful deserts (sour cherries and vanilla cream was ace).

It has a lovely terrace although being October we ate inside. We would happily go back again and would recommend without hesitation.

This was the best restaurant we ate at in Ljubljana. Recommended here and in Rick Steves, this is an out of the way place that is an absolute find.

It's south of the old town a couple of blocks (follow the river until you get to the street if walking) on a little side street.

Monika, our server, spoke excellent English and was very helpful (there is no written menu here, so they take their time to tell you what is good).

Steak with truffles and steak with gorgonzola is what we had, both came with fresh (really fresh) veggies and delicious roasted potatoes. Food is very simple in Ljubljana but when so fresh and well prepared it is incredibly delicious.

The owners were very nice as well.

Eat outside if you can; only a few tables but a great atmosphere.

Also a good choice for Sunday when a lot of other places may be closed.

This restaurant certainly does not have a charming location – in a quiet residential street where locals walk their dogs and take out their recycling. But nonetheless it was atmospheric and authentic and an unforgettable meal in Slovenia.

For starters I had a squid salad, which was basic but nice enough. My partner had the pumpkin soup, which he enjoyed but I thought a bit bland. (But then I'm not much of a pumpkin admirer.) But the main course! Due to a slight language difficulty, I thought I was ordering a steak with some donkey on the side over potatoes. (Donkey! Who's had donkey?! I had to try it.) When the dish arrived, it turned out to be steak of donkey over potatoes. I was pretty nervous (an entire steak of donkey!), but needlessly so: it was delicious. Tasted almost exactly like beef, but a slightly different note towards the end. Also, there's the excitement of eating donkey!

Our waitress was beyond charming; the food was unusual and delicious; and even though the view was not Ljubljana's finest, this wasn't a meal I will ever forget. And don't worry if you don't fancy donkey: there's plenty of regular food to be had too.

Cute and charming location outside. We had the pumpkin soup to start and it was very mediocre. It was runny and watery and not at all like a puree as we had expected. The rump steak which is their classic was, on the other hand, just delicious. The wine was also excellent and the service was terrific. But for the starters, we had an excellent meal.
