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!

Not sure if Frank from Colorado ate at the same restaurant. We had a 5 course degustation menu for 42 Euros and it was amazing. All authentic Slovenian food with a modern look. The presentation of every course was artistic and definitely a fine dining...More

Better than average. Doesn't quite meet criteria for very good. At the castle. A lovely area indoors and outdoors. Went as part of Rick Steves tour and we had a special menu. Husband had port which was very good. I had tasteless sea bass. The...More

I had a great time in that castle, but not in this restaurant! The waitress seemed had some issues with Asian customers, I felt ignored and kept waiting! And she said "I can not understand your English". I don't know how to express my anger...More

Description
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!
