“Our first taste and Impression of Slovenia,”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

We knew we had found a jewel when we arrived late the first night of our stay, and our waiter, Majeek, served us a lite meal, wonderful soup and rose beef or carpaccio. We could not wait for more.
We stayed 2 nights here at the start of a 2 week visit to Slovenia. Everything was perfect. The room, the breakfast, the service. The second night we had a tasting menu with different Slovenian wines starting with a Slovenian Prosecco. Ana is so talented and gracious. Before we departed, Ana wrote out a list of restaraunts for us to try on our journey along with the names of the chef.
Hope to return someday.

“Unexpected delight - worth a detour”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

Delicious, innovative food that satisfied both the eye and the taste buds. Friendly, professional service that was helpful without being intrusive and a generally relaxed ambience makes this top quality restaurant one not to be missed if you are in the area. If you make a detour to get here (it's worth it) then you can stay in the lovely boutique hotel in the same building.

“Top chef slovenia style!”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

This is definitely Slovenia's entry into any international top chef competition... Lovely presentation, great innovative local food, very concept based, and a nice dining experience (they gave me a gold bean bag chair to put my bag on so it didn't touch the floor!). Well worth a splurge!

“Hvala Ana and Valter,”
Reviewed June 10, 2012 via mobile

We went with a group, Hedonistic Hiking, and all agreed we had a most memorable night. One of our very well- travelled friends said he thinks this deserves at least 1 Michelin star. We had the degustation menu: perfect amount for each course, matched with lovely Slovenian wines but not too many different ones. Lovely interesting variety of top quality ingredients very locally sourced; beautifully plated up, each course on its own different style of Rosenthal china; excellent, professional, unpretentious service. They work hard to share the results of their passion & expertise with you the diner.

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

We ate at Hisa Franko twice, once from the a la carte menu, and once from the tasting menu. Both were excellent. The food is inventive without being pretentious, and there's a very wide range of choice on the menu. The staff are attentive and provide very thoughtful service, particularly when explaining the provenance of the various ingredients and wines. For the quality of food, it is also very good value.
