We ate here for the first time in 2012. We took the boar and we did not regret it. It was delicious, and the waiter was super nice to explain us how they prepare the meat, since it was soft and sweet. We came again...More

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.

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!
