This is possibly the best value excellent cuisine in Slovenia, and it is probably a consequence of a set of circumstances. The young cook worked with one of the best Slovenian cooks (Uroš Štefelin) before he moved to this unassuming place, which I guess makes for a relaxed working atmosphere a couple of houses away from his home, and he has no worry about finances since its the Tourist bureau who runs the place. So he is not ambitious, good for us who are often in the vicinity... He is though ambitious about his cooking, and that is what counts! If you do not know the place already, than be prepared to be surprised where this excellent cuisine is served - next to the camping place and a tennis tent, the last place to expect deer carpaccio with goose liver, freshwater fish you do not find elsewhere, fancy desserts.... The cook uses mostly local foodstuff, wines are honest, no big selection.it's nice alpine style with big wooden tables and benches in the outside sitting area. If you sit with the back to the cabin you actually get a beautiful view of the mountains (Bohinj is so beautiful!) and now it has a great cook, finally! By the way, also staff is local and very friendly.

Looking for a good restaurant one does tend to avoid the most obvious tourist spots. It doesn't get more touristy than the entrance to a campsite. This restaurant proves the exception to the rule. Situated at the entrance to the campsite in Bohinjska Bistrica it has a pleasant outside seating area and plenty of space inside too. The menu, however, is the first surprise. Though there are standard dishes there are several that are a little out of the ordinary and some that will satisfy vegetarians too, who tend to get a little bored by what is generally on offer. The second surprise is the quality of the cooking. The chef uses interesting combinations of ingredients and plenty of herbs. In short the food produced is fresh and tasty. Service when we visited was friendly and efficient, prices moderate and I am looking forward to my next visit.

We expected a modest lunch in the restaurant by the camping site and we ate a sophisticated, delicious and beautifully cooked lunch. Unusual combinations, perfectly presented. A cottage cheese mousse with white chocolate, orange and a hint of honey will always be remembered as one of the most amazing deserts ever!

Do'nt get mislead by the its location, This nice little wooden chalet, located at the entrance of the camping area, host the best restaurant between Bled and the Bohin lake. Modest appearance, but outstanding food and delicious, high qualitative dishes, which are change from the usual holliday meat dishes and pizza. Served with a smile at very affordable prices.Do'nt miss this opportunity.
