Description: Gostilna Ribič (Ribich) is a restaurant with 25 years of culinary excelence in the city of Ptuj. Located directly on the bank of the river Drava, the restaurant offers a romantic ambient that adds a relaxing touch to the culinary experience. Although the restaurant is famed for its fish dishes, we also take pride in our meat dishes that have been re-imagined in a modern culinary style that reflects the local region. Fresh and local produce are at the core of our work and we inspire to bring forth the best that our region has to offer. A modern culinary experience in a historic town - We welcome you to Gostilna Ribič. It had some ups and downs but now we are in full power to make it the best.

On our way back home from holiday on the Croatian coast we spent one night in Ptuj and Ribic was recommended to us by the accommodation staff. This was excellent suggestion. We had fish soup and mushroom soup, both were just excellent. Then I enjoyed delicious grilled zander served with local pasta mixed with quark. It was very tasty. The staff was also professional and nice, recommended sauvignon was very nice, but could be a bit colder. We liked the place so much that the next day we went there to have the two soups for early lunch. The only minus is that they have no boxes/bottles suitable to take away one or two portions of soup. And the prices are not exaggerated, I would say they are just correct for the value you get.

This restaurant is absolutely one of the best in Ptuj. The waiters are all trained professionals, so the service is on a very high level. The location is lovely, next to the river and the food is just delicious. The only downside are the prices, which are pretty high for Slovenian standards, but it’s worth it.

Gostilna Ribic is located on the river so the terrace is where to dine. We were a group of 5 and went for a late lunch. Being high season even for a late lunch the place was busy. The staff found us a table and set it up for us after we were told to sit. We each ordered glasses of white wine from Ptuj - many to chose from so we were all happy. We shared a charcuterie board of local cured meats and a fresh salad. We had calamari, fish, mussels - the calamari and fish were all delicious and prepared nicely. Especially the trout. It was a nice lunch. The only thing that brought the experience down was the stressed out staff. I understand it was high season and very busy - but you really felt like a number. We did not feel rushed to eat but it was hard to get staff members attention when you needed something like a fork or more water. They had no time to check in on us. We ran out of wine early on and were not offered another glass. I am sure (or at least would hope) that when it is not so busy service is more attentive. The food and wine were very good! The location is lovely! This is why I still considered the experience very good.

We arrived at 13:30 with our 2 children (6 & 4) but got sent away as the “cook was too busy, as many arrived at the same time”. A couple which arrived after us didn’t get sent off. Disappointing.
