If you are looking for genuine Slovenian cousine or you'd rather eat something else - you will NOT be dissapointed at this... More

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 June 2016 via mobile

We felt the real slovenian taste of food, but always the natural way of life of its people. We were looking for slovenian meals and it was dificult to choose in its long and local focused offer. The best: its quality and feeling that you are at an old Ljubliana restaurant where the tradition has been kept for a long... More

Nice restaurant in the city center of Ljubljana on Slovenska street (pedestrian zone). Wide choice of typical Slovenian food and good local wine. »Orehova (walnut) potica« for dessert is a must try. Waiters are friendly and well organized. Wi-fi is free.

This is a really interesting place a few hundred yards from the main tourist area of the river, on the main Slovenska cesta (opposite Nebotičnik, the landmark ‘skyscraper’, and not far from the way to Tivoli Park). There’s been a restaurant here since 1776, so there’s a lot of history in the building and menu, which seems to be nearly... More
