The food tastes amazing, everything I tried was delicious. The staff is extremely polite. A very fancy restaurant, perhaps the most fancy in Ljubljana. Therefore, the prices are very high.

I love this place. Food is really delicious, they don't make questionable dishes like some other hip restaurants. Staff is really friendly, chef is a cool guy. If you don't want to sit indoors, you can find them in Odprta kuhna (in summer season) where...More

JB was recommended by a local foodie, so our expectations were high. But very little of what we experienced hit a high note. Yes, the service was excellent. From there, it was downhill. The room is best described as austere formal. The amuse bouche was...More
