We were very proud for Slovenia having such a great cook as Ana Ros. Finally we went there with the highest expectations. First surprise was Ana Ros itself sitting after the reception desk. Okey, we thought, she'll go to the kitchen later, but she didn't. So whose food we ate, we don't know, but definitely not hers. Dreams didn't come... More

Having seen the Chef's Table documentary about the restaurant, I had very high expectations for the experience. They were met at this wonderful restaurant. The service was impeccable, kind and not stuffy. The nine course menu was fascinating. Although I did not love every course; there was terrific attention to detail in each element - and overall it was quite... More

Presentation really excellent, taste combinations similarly superb. Service was really good as you could discuss the food, way of cooking... More

My husband and I just got back from Hisa Franko and we are already planning our next visit sometime next year. We got the 'I love you' package, which we thought was great value. The food was very good and you could see how well the food matches with the wine. It's something that can't really be put into words,... More

Hisa Franko is my absolut favorit restaurant in the hole world! Ana, Valter and the hole team makes us a perfect stay for one night. I have to go there every year, my first visit was 2000! Anas cooking is real soul food, the creations are not comparable to the rest of all chefs. Thank you once again. Looking forward... More

We were staying in Kobarid and the restaurant was kind enough to arrange a shuttle for us to the restaurant and back. A very nice first experience this was. For my surprise the driver was Valter and he was very friendly and nice and we talked about the restaurant on the way of course. Upon arrival we were greeted by... More

Spent 2 nights at Hisa Franko and had the long 9 course dinner. What a treat! The food was wonderfully fresh and creatively presented and the waiter could tell us where everything had been locally sourced. Doing the wine pairing with the meal would be my recommendation, as the completely Slovenian selections enhanced each course to a tee. You can... More

Inspired by the Netflix series Chef's Table, we decided to travel Slovenia. No regrets about that, because Slovenia is a very beautiful country. First stop was Kobarid to visit Ana Ros/ her HISA FRANKO restaurant and stay over for one night. Included in the package was dinner with 9 courses. First of all you can hardly call them courses because... More

Hisa Franko is a destination restaurant, which makes expectations very high. We had originally wanted to stay a night at their hotel, but they didn't have vacancy, so just had lunch. Make sure to reserve a table well in advance. I visit high end restaurants quite frequently, and from the moment we arrived at Hisa Franko I appreciated that service... More
