I don’t know difference between Kavarna Maček, Stara Mačka and other names for the restaurant with nice terrace on the banks of Ljubljanica and average inner place in two levels. Outside it is fine to sit during happy hours and look to the people strolling...More

I ordered steak. And no question about how I want it cooked. The waiter spoke terrible English and can hardly understand what you're talking about. The food turns out to be not so bad though.

We had a great lunch at noon. There were few people so the serving went quite fast. The prices we paid were around 10-15euro. The young guy who served us was funny and attentive. I don't know why many people disliked this restaurant. Just take...More
