We took the tasting menu and were really disappointed, since it should be in the top 100 restaurants in the world. We started with the marinated pig head, but the mustard was completely overpowering the dish. The next dish were ravioli, that were fine, but forgettable. The main dish were beef cheeks, my partner enjoyed them, but the grilled endive... More

Run by famous chef Janez Bratovž , this is a place of gastronomic pilgrimage for all who are into philosophy and art of cooking and dining. Fantastic service too.

Very high quality ingredients and great wines. High prices,but if you want to eat on that level that is ok. Best ravioli a had in my life.Better than in most michelin star restaurants in Italy. Service was professional and attentive.

Firstly I would say this is probably more of a 3.5 star review, but was disappointed non the less. We arrived a couple of minutes late for our 8pm reservation (we got a bit lost following google to the wrong place) and we're asked to wait at the bar for 5 mins. We ordered a bottle of wine while we... More

Extremely tasty and very high quality food. The tasting hold Michelin standard and then some. Good local wines and good service. A bit pricy for Slovenia, over €200 for two persons. We did have a nice wine though

This restaurant is different to any other in Ljubljana and IT is in top 3 in Slovenia by my opinion. Creativity of chef Janez Bratovž is something that will leave you without a breath. The real finedinning! If there was a Michelin in Slovenia JB would have two at least.

The food tastes amazing, everything I tried was delicious. The staff is extremely polite. A very fancy restaurant, perhaps the most fancy in Ljubljana. Therefore, the prices are very high.

We have visited this restaurant within week of restaurants. Due to reputation, expectations were very high, but the result was not so excellent. Place was OK, service too, but menu was not as expected - maybe they should change a menu if there is a price problem (I know, you can't expect same ingredients as if you order classic tasting...

My partner and I visited JB restaurant during the "Restaurants week". When we saw the menu online, we were really worried, because we don't like the certain tastes of the food on the menu. Staff was very kind. I haven't experienced before to be offered a mini chair for my purse, which I found really nice, because I don't like... More
