We booked for a Friday lunch and the food definitely lived up to expectations. An amazing menu to chose from; limited but very well thought through dishes including the famous beef cheeks. Even better for diners with limited time as the food comes out quickly....More

The glowing TripAdvisor reviews convinced me to give this place a try even though I was looking for a more traditional Slovenian food experience. And I was glad I did! We went early enough (noon) to secure a table without a reservation. Every item in...More

One of best places to enjoy a well prepared contemporary meal in Ljubljana. Food is delicious and innovative, service excellent. Short menu, based on local fresh ingredient availability. Place is consciously non-pretentous, reservations highly recommended. Pricing very fair for this level of overall experience.

Dropped by on a rainy weekday for lunch. Took the 2 course lunch for 16 eur, having the potato soup and grilled octopus. The octopus was very tender but somehow lacked flavour and was slightly disappointing.

I've been here a couple of times for lunch. It's a bit more expensive than places where I usually eat during my work days. But the place is great. The courses are unique and it is really worth your money!
