I like this restaurant as I go there often with my boyfriend. The steakes there are wonderful and they also have a lot of seafood, which is also very good. The ambient is amazing in the summer. A bit pricey.

We stubled upon this nice restaurant while cycling alongside the river and felt a little hungry. We ended up eating 3 courses. We sat in the beatiful garden with nice weather in the shade. Mosquitos were the only downside to the entire experience. As first course we shared a simple but delicious trio of tuna tartare, squid and swordfish carpaccio.... More

Excellent sea food and else. Able staff. Place is calling for rennovation, it is a little murky. Try fresh sea fish and appetizers. Wine list relatively poor.

Visited again after couple of years and found it very similar and also still very good when talking about quality. I still consider this place one of the best in Ljubljana.
