My wife and I ate here our last night in Ljubljana in Mid September, and unfortunately it was the worst experience not only of our trip, but one of our worst experiences at a restaurant ever. First, my wife was brought a meal that was...More

We came across this restaurant and had a look through the menu outside. They have a great menu and a large drink menu. In case you can’t read Slovenian, no worries, they have English menus as well. It was a little windy so we decided...More

I had a very mediocre veal medallion with mushroom sauce, and a small beer for 20,8 €. Service was good, but I found it rather expensive compared with other restaurants where I ate much better.

We had a great night here - the service was great, the recommended wine choice was one of the best we've had here, and the food was tasty and well cooked. Like another reviewer, we were surprised at the lack of ground pepper. The pasta...More

...one was enough for us to share. In fact, we ate lunch here twice during our stay in Ljubljana. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. With one beer and the sandwich, our bill was less than 10€ each day.

Nice location near the river, very good food and service. We visited for both diner and breakfast and everything we ordered was good.

The food was way below an average Italian restaurant, just mediocre at best and the portion size was small for a pasta dish. Lacking in flavour, no bread, olive oil, Parmesan or ground pepper in sight. Very disappointed.

Considering the location of this restaurant, we are consistently impressed (we have eaten here many times over several trips to the city) with the quality, prices and service here. Yesterday, we selected different pasta meals and both were tasty and definitely sufficient for an evening...More

Ljubljana's most famous sandwich shop also includes a full-fledged restaurant and café (in addition to the original soup and sandwiches of course) on the expanded premises. The à la carte selection leans towards the Italian, with homemade gnocchi and ravioli standing out, but also offers a handful of Slovene favourites, and the constantly changing daily lunch specials are a good value. The warm cosy atmosphere is also conducive to dropping in for an evening drink or dessert. Dober tek!
