This is one of my favourite restaurants in Ljubljana. They have a long standing family tradition - one of its kind. You will be welcomed by a short plum brandy right at the entrance. Its a must. You can choose from a rich menu of always freshly prepared food - be it steaks, fish, crab or a vegetarian menu. They... More

Tipical slovenian restaurant serving fried chicken with potatoes and seasonal salad. Service was quick, food was ok, desserts could be better. Prices are resonable.

I like this restaurant as I go there often with my boyfriend. The steakes there are wonderful and they also have a lot of seafood, which is also very good. The ambient is amazing in the summer. A bit pricey.

We stubled upon this nice restaurant while cycling alongside the river and felt a little hungry. We ended up eating 3 courses. We sat in the beatiful garden with nice weather in the shade. Mosquitos were the only downside to the entire experience. As first course we shared a simple but delicious trio of tuna tartare, squid and swordfish carpaccio.... More

Excellent sea food and else. Able staff. Place is calling for rennovation, it is a little murky. Try fresh sea fish and appetizers. Wine list relatively poor.
