My wife and i chose JB restaurant as a treat after not being out for a long time.
We were positively surprised by the tastes and presentation of the food. We had pasta with home made sauce and sour cream as a warm starter, slices of pork with gnocchi and mushrooms as a main dish and a soufle for desert. The main dish was simple yet very tasty and presented is a very nice way.
The desert was top of the dinner, and i was stuffed at the end.

We had some slovenian wine along with the food ... i think it was cabernet vintage 2007. It was a very good recommendation from the staff.

I really have no complaints about this place. I recommend it if you want to spend a lovely dinner with good food and service. The only thing that was slightly weird at first was that there was nobody to greet is when se arrived at first. It looked as if the place around the entrance was deserted. After couple of minutes they noticed us and we kicked it off a lovely evening.

Everything was good! The food, the wine, the service.
Good to learn to know some Slovakian wines!
What more to say?

Our reservations were made by our hotel and we were told this was one of the top restaurants in Europe. We were greeted at the door and were immediately seated. Both of the servers we had were outstanding. They were personable, professional, and carefully explained every course to us. The chef visited our table four times checking on our progress.

The food was not what we had hoped it would be. The steaks were lacking in flavor as most of the food was. The presentations were beautiful, but all courses of the food left us disappointed.

Excellent combination of traditional food, modern cuisine and personal tuch of chef Janez Bratovž.

I take 10 way menu .... BEST !!!

The food tastes amazing, everything I tried was delicious. The staff is extremely polite. A very fancy restaurant, perhaps the most fancy in Ljubljana.
Chef Bratovž came by the table to make sure all was well ....

I highly recommend it.

This restaurant is a complete counterpoint to the 'traditional' places catering to the hordes in the old town. Janez Bratovz cooks from the heart, but a heart that has the techniques and choices of ingredients of a master craftsman. Everything from the bread to the dessert was perfectly executed and every dish had something interesting or unusual to discuss and enjoy. Our waiter guided us to an excellent yet inexpensive Slovenian wine; Mr Bratovz came by the table to make sure all was well .... which it most certainly was. Easily the best meal we had in Slovenia and, while more expensive than the old town cafes, great value for money.
