We stayed at the Lokanda for 5 nights and ate at the trattoria twice and in the Osteria once. Rarely have we been offered such generous hospitality. The Devetak family are all involved and all are friendly and knowledgeable. The osteria, the more casual bar/restaurant at the front, is popular with locals whilst the more formal restaurant seemed a magnet... More

we went to this country famous Restaurant with some friends that strongly recommended this place. The site is really very nice, service is good but food is largely overvaluated and overpriced. Over 45€ per person too much.

Great degustation menu of four dishes accompanying with three local wines. Price was reasonable. Staff was really friendly and eager to tell story behind the food. Atmosphere in the restaurant is great and I do not remember to see washbasin in toilet to be local product made of stone.
