One needs to take time to experience Gregor Vracko and his team. Do not ask too many questions, focus on the plates and enjoy. It is a symphony for the senses.

This restaurant is a fairy tale. The architecture, the interior design, the service and the symphony of stimuli for all the senses. Gregor Vracko has crossed the borders of the "corporate" gastronomy a long time ago and actually runs an an art school.

After a long Periode where my way did not cross Maribor and Kungota I had the luck to spend another night.... and - quality of food, excellence of wine, cosyness of accomondation and the friendlyness of the family still are the best you can think of when you are on the road. My place !

The best restaurant in this part of Slovenia. Nearing perfection in all aspects - tastes, presentation, ambient. The main dish (combination of smoked steak, pork knuckle, mushrooms...) was an embodiment of how autumn tastes. Perfect choice for special occasions. Must visit!

If you visit Slovenia, this is MUST DO. For 3 hours of excellent food (5-6 course) and vine tasting in a beautiful interior we paid very fair price. Experience you don't find every day. Highly recommended!

Our first visit was at Hisa Franko ( see review), but the next day we travelled 200 km east to Kungota and stayed at Valdhuber apartments.

Grega Vračko is older brother of another chef, David. Denjk is situated nearby Austrian border, in a kind of outback. I still remember the old restaurant house.....tipical far-out village gasthaus....The new adition is very minimalistic and contemporary modern architecture...Nevermind, the food at Denk was always modern, but not very minimalistic...nor in portions, nor at taste...Actually, it always was local and...

The first impression of this restaurant by surprise, modern contemporary house in the middle of the village. It is essential to book for lunch or dinner. Food contemporary worth a Michelin star. Good waiter explains that these contents: It can be improved wine offer at the table.Otherwise 5 +.. Chef Gregor Vračko perfectionist

Thank Tatjana M
