When you go there try the "potatoe that wants to be a truffle" it is one of the best things I ever ate. The owner is very friendly and the wine selection is fantastic. Would love to dine there again.

Was told by our Slovene friends that DAM is a new and good restaurant so we went there last November to try. Chef/owner Uros greeted and seat us. We were offered some complement appetizers. We then ordered tuna tartare and mixed raw seafoods. I had...the mixed raw seafoods and it was excellent. So was the tuna tartare for my friend. Taking Uros's recommendation we ordered hot seafood salad which contained scallops, fish, cucumber and other salads in warm liquid. It was so different and so delicious. We then order baked branzino for the main disk. The chef filed the fish for us, but also served the fish head as I requested. The fish which was well seasoned and cooked, was very delicious. We then had some digestive liquor for dessert. The liquor was correctly served in the warmed snifter. Overall, it was very pleasant evening, excellent dinner and service. I will certainly come back. .More

We were two couples at the end of the journey around Slovenia. We knew that DAM is an excellent restaurant but it was outstanding. A great end of our trip! The owner and Chef is dedicated to the restaurant and the boutique hotel (which is...also excellent). We had different first and second entries. All was perfect! I strongly recommend this restaurant!More

The entire meal was stunning. Every course was special and they complemented each other very well. The owner and chef has put his heart and soul into this restaurant and it shows with the careful planning and attention to detail. The wine list is good...and the advice about wines was excellent. The amuse bouche was an anchovy in a lemon and olive oil sauce. Stunningly good. One dish had scallops, broccoli, truffles and roasted broccoli that went well together. The scallops simply melted in one's mouth. The grilled octopus came with potato pyramids and great sauces. It was perfect. The desserts were outstanding. The whole meal was one to remember until the end of our days. Four of us ate together and we all extremely happy.More

We have spent another birthay dinner at this place, all by ourselves in a separate room. The food - exclusively fish - was fantastic, quantities more than plenty, wine stupendous, service excellent. The owner complied with all my extra wishes. Thank you very much, Uroz!...PS it is very surprising to note that bad ratings come exclusively from Italians with some of the most bizarre critiques.More

Chef Uroš and the whole team of DAM are on top level in everything. From the welcome through the service and not to mention the food. If there the best option is to let yourself go and give in to the tasting menu. Be treated...as a king and enjoy life!More

From start to the very end flawless presentation. Balanced flavours great textures&colours. The service was very professional with a warm touch of cosiness. We had a 6 course menu and my favourite was definitely the risotto with beetroot. (The only thing that was just a...bit under the level of other dishes was the asparagus with egg. In my humble opinion the asparagus dominated the dish too much) Bottom line one of the best restaurants in Slovenia.More

Who could imagine that in Kromberk would you find a seafood restaurant serving and performing in close proximity to Michelin star? We went without expectations and ordered a tasting menu with seven different dishes. Judge of our surprise when these came in, one better than...the other, but all with a very high culinary experience. Should you have the roads past Gorizia or Nova Goriza in Slovenijen, stay at this fine and quality restaurant that delivers food and wines in smoothly superior qualityMore
