We found this place almost by accident and despite arriving without any reservation we managed to get a table straight away. To start with, the place looks beautiful, super well decorated and modern. It's not big,so I imagine it can lead to waiting if you...More

Ek Bistro is one of my all time favourite places. May it be for breakfast to start the day with delicious bread, served with butter and jam and a cup of matcha, during lunch time to enjoy my favourite eggs florentine or for an after...More

Where good taste results in pleasurable experiences, evoking and creating memories. Our bistro serves breakfast, brunch and cocktails in a modern setting. Leave the hustle and bustle of Ljubljana's busy streets behind as you reach the crossroads of Petkovškovo bank and Usnjarska street, overlooking the river. Ek bistro is rough around the corners. The bricks may be exposed, but so is its heart.
