We ate our final dinner of a week's holiday in Ljubljana here and it was a fitting highlight for a great week. The restaurant is located in the courtyard of the Castle, and is pretty quiet in the evenings even in high season. The menu...More

Pros: food quality, service, location Cons: location (long stroll up the hill) I ordered pasta filled with potato ('žlikrofi'), lamb ragout. A bowl arrived and first few sips seemed nothing special. After a while the flavor kicked in. I ate all the heavy stuff but...More

Great food but I was shocked by the bill, it was the most expensive meal we had on our entire European trip. The views were good, service impeccable, but in hindsight we could have had three meals beside the river for the same price.

Tasted like warmed in a microwave totally chewy. Coffee took 10 more minutes to arrive. Do not recommend.

Perfect location with a diverse menu offering creative local flavor. Their selection of local wines is also wonderful. Staff helpful--take their recommendations and try something new and different! The appetizers and soup were my favorite courses!

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!
