Goatilna Na grade is an excellent place to eat in the Castle above Ljubljana. It was enjoyable eating in the glassed in porch in the courtyard. Selection of food was great and the food was delicious and not over expense. Service was excellent and friendly.

I had the sea bass. It was definitely one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. I’ve never enjoyed broccoli and cauliflower so much with my food.

Gostilna Na Gradu is in the castle courtyard. The decor is a mix of old castle artifacts and modern like the castle. We went with a group, the food and service were excellent. Normally I would avoid any restaurant in a monument for anything more than a hot dog at the time of famine. This one is run by the couple that own Hisa Franko near Kobarid. Ana Ros is a gifted chef. More on that with my review of Hisa Franko. (The food is Slovenian and not really Croatian. In this part of the world, wars have been fought over less!
