This is considered the best restaurant in Ljubljana. It is very formal to the point of being stuff and pretentious. There is no alacarte menu, you must take a set meal, which included horse or pony. If you want to dine with other "upper crust"...More

For a michelin star-type experience, restaurant JB offers original and very good dishes for a non-excessive price. You can choose between different taste menus or a la carte. As we were not that hungry we went a la carte. We really enjoyed the experience and...More

JB's is the classiest restaurant you'll find in Ljubljana. The food is delicious, the staff is more than nice, compliant, and consistent, the restaurant has a beautiful decor, the music is pleasant.

JB is definitely one of the city's more formal restaurants, so you probably wouldn't want to turn up in shorts and T-shirts. Equally, it is not jacket-and-tie territory, so semi-respectable attire should be fine.
