I think we hit the jackpot with Julija by pitching up on St Martin's Day, the day when the grape 'must' is traditionally said to become wine and can be unleashed on wine drinkers. So as well as a special menu, the restaurant was offering the 2015 release of good quality Slovenian wines which had only arrived that afternoon. Julija... More

We went here on a whim on Thursday night and weren't aware of the Trip Advisor reports prior. The restaurant looked cosy from the outside and there were a good selection of menu boards with Slovenian traditional dishes so we thought we would give it a try. We got a corner table near the back and settled in with a... More

Nice friendly restaurant serving local specialities. I tried pumpkin seed oil here for the first time( instead of the usual olive/balsamic mix) and it was delicious. Had a nice pork knuckle and local beer - all good value

Julija is one of my favourite restaurants in Ljubljana. The food is delicious, they have a good selection of slovenian wine (I don't know about international wine) and service is very good: the waiters and waitresses are very friendly, charming even, but keeping the necessary distance, quick and efficient!

Very stylish place with warm and cosy atmosphere. Menu is big enough so we found something for kids (9 and 12) and all adults. Food is great. We tried lamb, beef steak, two different pastas, different salads. Everything was perfect. Staff is very friendly. We recommend to visit this restaurant at least once while you are in Ljubljana 👍👍👍

We went there three times first for lunch as we arrived in Ljubljana. They were near our hotel, we looked at their special and decided to have lunch al fresco in the outside seating. The Tripadvisor Hall of Fame was also a giveaway sign It was so good the waiter talked us into a dinner reservation and we are so... More

The place is nice, waiters friendly with good knowledge of English, and the food is really good. Little more pricier than in other similar restaurants in the town center.

Sat outside and ate here on our second night. A very reasonable menu well priced....we think it is owned by the same team who run Valvasor next door. It was busy, so glad we booked a table. Service and food was good and overall good value for money.
