The place is quite old. As well as the decor. I go there sometimes for a quick lunch because they do have a nice selection of Serbian food and the prices are really ok. But they always have some sort of surprise for me. Whether it is the wrong order and they expect me to eat it, because well, the... More

The Balkan grill restaurant continues the tradition of old Slovenian gostilna from 1886. The rooms could use some redecoration; there is a pleasant outdoor dining space for summer. The food is good old-fashioned grill: čevapčići, with or without cheese, baked beans "prebranac", grilled chicken and roasted peppers are the favorites of the crowd. You might want to call in advance... More

Kind staff, acceptable price, food is alright, but it used to be better. The place itself needs some readjustment.

Charming place to eat with a great eastern European atmosphere. Though communication with the waiter was a little difficult - I asked if he could speak English and he responded that he could speak German. I continued speaking to him in German, not sure if he understood. He ended up bringing me two main meals! Both tasted good and were... More

With family and friend I visited Dubocica early afternoon. Restaurant is old but nice, with beautiful garden under the old big trees.

The atmosphere looks at first dreamy, an old restaurant true to it's time when it was build (i guess circa 30 years ago) under autumn Aesculus. Well when you look into detail, it was not, it had a stank of old uncared for flowers on one side and of piss on the other side. The staff was nice. We went... More

I've never seen anyone but locals at this gostilna, but it has become our ritual to take lunch here while we are in Ljubljana. Although the indoors is cozy, the outdoor garden under the trees but within site of the grill is a good place to while away a summer day. Excellent food! We particularly recommend the gibanica (cheese-filo pie)... More
