I had the sea bass. It was definitely one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. I’ve never enjoyed broccoli and cauliflower so much with my food.

Poor value for an expensive price. Small plates. Long Service. Some of the dishes without any taste. Doesn't worth it. At all.

This restaurant is a place of two distinct contrasts. Fresh and quality ingredients with creative food presentation are disappointingly cooked in a boring and underwhelming manner. With every bite I craved for the advertised authentic taste that never came. It was authentically plain. The three...More

Top resturant in ljubljana castle. They have a glass terrace and it is great to eat there. Traditional food on a modern way.

The restaurant is beautifully set in the Ljubljana castle. They serve good traditional food and good local wines. Prices are relatively low given the quality of food and the location. It's not a tourist trap as one might imagine, staff is very friendly.

Pros: food quality, service, location Cons: location (long stroll up the hill) I ordered pasta filled with potato ('žlikrofi'), lamb ragout. A bowl arrived and first few sips seemed nothing special. After a while the flavor kicked in. I ate all the heavy stuff but...More

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!
