The visit to Hisa Refoska was one of the highlights of our few days in Slovenia. We were passing with a Slovenian friend who decided to briefly stop to show us the wine cellar next to the restaurant. What was expected to be a ten minute stop turned into two hours (which felt like ten minutes). We got talking to the Manager about the region and its wines which in turn led to an impromptu wine and food tasting session. He had extensive knowledge and infectious enthusiasm for Refosk wine and the excellent Slovenian dishes he offered us. We felt we were being entertained by a generous and passionate host, eager to enlighten us outsiders of all his home has to offer. It was this genuine, sincere, engagement that made us feel like guests, and what made this pitstop so memorable.

I went here for a business lunch. My expectations were quite high, and unfortunately were not met. The dishes we tried were very average in taste. E. g. the scrimps trio was nicely presented and the scrimps seemed of good quality, but they were overcooked and had therefor lost the basic taste. The gnocchi al tartufo were the best thing we had in the restaurant. The sashimi tuna was ok, but again nothing special. It was probably the question of the quality of tuna. For a raw tuna the fish really has to be of superb quality otherwise the taste and structure is just not as it has to be. The service was impeccable. The waiter new his wines, which is normal since the place is a part of a winery. The 2011 Malvasia we tried was very nice. The place has potential but they should sort out some basics such as the cooking time for specific dishes.

Jure and his team are great hosts. They have always a fresh daily menu, consisting of not more than 3 dishes.
You may though order something other the daily dishes, and the team will always let you know what of the other fresh stuff they can prepare for you.

The cooks are great and you get nicely prepared dishes.

Would recommend for business meetings, larger group/organised events..as well as taking friends for a meal.

The ambient is nice, and you may also quckly jump to Vinakoper to buy a few bottles to take home.

Am a regular guest, and would highly suggest to stop by
