“Great place by the river”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

I ate here on my first and last night in Ptuj. I'm usually not a fish person but since I'm in Ptuj, I thought I should give their seafood a try so I ordered the pike pearch fillet on barley and vegetables. It wasn't the best mainly because there were alot of bones and the there wasn't much flavour to it but the pork medallions with goricka ham in cheese sauce (saltinbocca) which I'd on my last night was superb. The portion was just nice and eventhough it was cheese sauce, it wasn't very heavy and I even had a salad to start! I topped it off with a good glass of house wine.

“Excellent food, great service”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Ribic is right on the river next to the pedestrian bridge, and boasts a wonderful terrace outside.
The food is excellent, and the service very friendly and competent. We had several courses and asked the waiter to recommmend wines by the glass. He did, and he made excellent picks. The whole wine list is available by the glass, and very reasonably priced.

“Mixed experience”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

The evening started off well at this restaurant and we looked forward to a nice meal, dining at one of the outdoor tables overlooking the river. Our meals were average and rather bland (my husband had chicken, I had the evening special, the mixed fish plate). As the evening progressed, it got busier and busier and our waiter was nowhere to be found. They were clearly understaffed. A large group came into the indoor dining room and we soon found ourselves ignored, with our empty plates sitting in front of us for a long time (the same situation for several other tables around us). I finally had an opportunity to order dessert, however, I had to wait so long that I almost considered cancelling. Maybe we just hit an off night, however, this was not a good experience for us, and for a restaurant of this caliber, just not acceptable.
