The food tastes amazing, everything I tried was delicious. The staff is extremely polite. A very fancy restaurant, perhaps the most fancy in Ljubljana. Therefore, the prices are very high.

We have visited this restaurant within week of restaurants. Due to reputation, expectations were very high, but the result was not so excellent. Place was OK, service too, but menu was not as expected - maybe they should change a menu if there is a price problem (I know, you can't expect same ingredients as if you order classic tasting...

My partner and I visited JB restaurant during the "Restaurants week". When we saw the menu online, we were really worried, because we don't like the certain tastes of the food on the menu. Staff was very kind. I haven't experienced before to be offered a mini chair for my purse, which I found really nice, because I don't like... More

Me and my partner went to the restaurant during the "Week of the Restaurants" and were very disappointed. I've been to this restaurant before, roughly 15 years ago. At the time the restaurant deserved the reputation of being one of the best Slovenia has to offer.This time though it was the opposite. The food was average at best and the... More

Visited this upscale restaurant with our friends and had the grand menu. Everything was delicious, but the prawns were to die for. Definitely worth visiting!

Some superb dishes came out of the kitchen, but there was something a little "off" about this place on the night we went. There is an interesting variety of tasting menus. I had the "Great Tasting Menu." Well, mostly. I never received the scampi and was not told that they were out of it or that there would be a... More

Business dinner where traditional local dishes meets a modern upgrade and twist. Great combination of ingredients - pork to die for, well presented - at times by chef himself, attentive high quality service. I get what the hype is about and in my opinion well deserved. Local wine comes with the set menu and they were interesting to meet as... More

I love this place. Food is really delicious, they don't make questionable dishes like some other hip restaurants. Staff is really friendly, chef is a cool guy. If you don't want to sit indoors, you can find them in Odprta kuhna (in summer season) where they have one of the best meals in Pogacarjev trg.

JB was recommended by a local foodie, so our expectations were high. But very little of what we experienced hit a high note. Yes, the service was excellent. From there, it was downhill. The room is best described as austere formal. The amuse bouche was far too fishy. Our appetizers were meh and only one of our two main courses... More
