Excellent fusion of past and modern materials create extraordinary atmosphere in the castle restaurant. As expected the dishes were on a high level of quality visually and of course also from the quality. Great old school slowenian menus with a touch of modern cuisine. Excellent and professional service, always there when you need it. Will surely come back.

Had a dinner in this castle restaurant that claims to offer local fair. We were a big group and at least what we were offered was not really good. Maybe it's good in local standards but cannot compete in international arena. Beef stew with potato ravioli was mushy and dessert looked like Chinese dumpling with foie gras. Duck was good... More

This restaurant is located in the castle above Ljubljana. We were a little concerned that it might be a less than stellar experience, but in truth the food and service were first-rate. We would recommend the veal liver entree, as well as the local sausage dish with grated horseradish. They also have a good wine list.

Eating at the castle was our one real mistake in Ljubljana. Everyone online swore it wasn't a tourist trap but we felt like we ate mediocre and EXPENSIVE wedding food. The service also felt pretty condescending. This was a real disappointment after some other fantastic food in Ljubljana. None of us finished our entrees. Even sitting in the castle wasn't... More

Normally you would be somewhat wary of restaurants in very touristy areas, but this place is an exception. Located in the castle courtyard above Ljubljana, the restaurant is a stylish room serving traditional Slovenian fare. We opted for a light lunch of kransky sausage and chicken wings and breast. Both reasonably priced ,very tasty and easily enough for lunch. A... More

I had read the reviews on Trip Advisor and made a note to enjoy lunch while visiting the castle. Our party of three chose the daily 3-course lunch special at a price of 20.20 euros per person. We were all delighted with the food. The beef stock soup was authentic and perfect; the pumpkin soup was superb. The entree was... More

Had lunch here and felt lucky to get a table without a reservation. The service was extremely friendly and helpful. Was pleasantly surprised to find it not to be a tourist trap with overpriced, mediocre food. On the contrary, the dishes were all creative, fresh and reasonably priced. The mixed appetizer plate is an excellent way to start - the... More

Third visit to this versatile restaurant, in the summer eat on the roof terrace, downstairs you can have more formal dining or as we did this time eat in the more casual area each one is excellent

Excellent traditional Slovenian dishes in the heart of Ljubljana castle. Service is very professional and the wine chart is amazing. Usually it is smart to book in advance, but if you find yourself hungry near the castle and if you are not a party of 15 people, you still may get lucky to get seated for lunch or dinner. Definitely... More

Restaurant is inside the Castle in Ljubljana. I cannot understand why it is not listed being in such a tourist spot and also being so good. Serves Slovenian and International food.
