We ordered the gourmet special, and waited almost an full hour till we started to get the dishes. The restaurant was not crowded and there was no reason for the delay, but still we got the main dish an hour and... More

Everything here oozes class. Superb mixture of traditional and modernSlovene cuisine. Friendly and attentive service. There of us, two locals, with different tastes had a superb dinner. Catch the sunset from the castle tower or ramparts before your meal.

We had lunch here after our audio guide tour of the castle. We were glad to take the weight off our feet for a while and we were even more pleased when our food arrived. I had the set menu for the day, Garlic soup (which was lush), Duck breast (which was very tender and tasty) and a layer cake... More

This restaurant serves fantastic food in a very relaxed environment. Most of the recipes are based on traditional slovenian dishes but with a modern twist, which, however, does not take any of their initial taste away! Must visit!

The best meal I had during my 4 month stay in Eastern Europe. We stopped by during a visit to the castle, charmed by the beautiful location and big glass windows with a view on the castle courtyard. The service is extremely attentive and high class. The menu is not extensive however what we ordered was perfectly cooked. I had... More

I took my family for dinner at Gostilna na gradu for my birthday. We had the degustation menu - a walk around Slovenia, and every single dish we got was delicious, beautifully presented, well balanced, superb! Their wine list made me wish I didn't have to drive home. The one wine I tasted (Blaž, 2006) was very very good. The... More

Dining within the castle used to be reserved for only those with true privilege and wealth, but now a simple visit to Ljubljana Castle, with a stop by Gostilna Na Gradu will make you feel like the richest and most culinarily astute in the city. Mixing years of traditional Slovenian cuisine, recipes handed down from master to apprentice, with modern... More

Gostilna Na Gradu is in the castle courtyard. The decor is a mix of old castle artifacts and modern like the castle. We went with a group, the food and service were excellent. Normally I would avoid any restaurant in a monument for anything more than a hot dog at the time of famine. This one is run by the couple that own Hisa Franko near Kobarid. Ana Ros is a gifted chef. More on that with my review of Hisa Franko. (The food is Slovenian and not really Croatian. In this part of the world, wars have been fought over less!
