Description: Gostilna Na Gradu is in the castle courtyard. The decor is a mix of old castle artifacts and modern like the castle. We went with a group, the food and service were excellent. Normally I would avoid any restaurant in a monument for anything more than a hot dog at the time of famine. This one is run by the couple that own Hisa Franko near Kobarid. Ana Ros is a gifted chef. More on that with my review of Hisa Franko. (The food is Slovenian and not really Croatian. In this part of the world, wars have been fought over less!

We booked a movie under the stars which runs during the month of July.

We arrived early with the intention of getting something to eat so ended up eating here.

Service was discrete and leisurely which is OK we started eating almost an hour before the movie started and they had already said we could watch the movie from our seats which was effectively a more comfy seat at the back with an excellent view of the screen.

I started with the castle board - various Slovenian delicacies

I had the lamb which was nice but did have a bit of gristle with it. My wife had the pork 'schnitzel' coated with almonds

The cheese platter for dessert was very large and would have comfortably fed two

We took the funicular up and had a great table outside in the courtyard of the castle..wanted to try Anna Ros new joint venture as consolation in not being able to get into Hissa Franko.

The food was very good, and the wine was also. Very good service. Only drawback was they were showing a movie under the stars that night at the castle and so everyone seemed concerned about this and it did take some of the ambience away but it wasn’t too bad.

Well worth a special occasion trip to eat

When you visit the castle and you want to eat, try this restaurant. The food is fantastic. It'not very cheap but is worth the money.

The quality of our meal varied wildly between a delicious tempura prawn first course and an excellent bottle of wine to a sadly uninspired trout fillet arrange,ent where the ingenuity seemed to have been invested in the architecture of the dish rather than its flavours. Based on our experience it is difficult to recommend this restaurant. Perhaps we were unlucky? The service was attentive and helpful.

This is a top class restaurant in a stunning location within the castle. Food choice good, excellent quality. Wine varied, and plenty of local choice. Overall very pleased with service, ambiance and tasty food. Worth a visit, but you may want to book.
