Tipical slovenian restaurant serving fried chicken with potatoes and seasonal salad. Service was quick, food was ok, desserts could be better. Prices are resonable.

I like this restaurant as I go there often with my boyfriend. The steakes there are wonderful and they also have a lot of seafood, which is also very good. The ambient is amazing in the summer. A bit pricey.
