We choose this restaurant while was "Teden restavracij" (restaurant week). They had good menu, one meet, one fish. Tasty but nothing special. Unfortunately I don't have more pictures.

This is known as the best restaurant in Ptuj for a reason. We sat outdoors in October and enjoyed a full lunch. The food was preceded by a "greeting from the Kitchen," a little morsel of goodness to start things off right. Delicious dishes and flavorful sherbets for dessert.

Sat outside our first evening enjoying an usually tasty chicken liver appetizer, fish with black risotto, and back of venison and that gorgeous view of the river. Sunday night didn't find much else open, so returned for an equally good meal. My husband saved room for strudel and it didn't disappoint. Food is pretty rich, so if you don't like... More

Ptuj is a charming old city and Restaurant Ribic is a very nice place to dine when visiting this area. It's location on the river is so pretty, but the evening we went there, it was too chilly to consider having dinner outdoors. That did not change the fact that the ambiance indoors was pleasant also......nice service, great fish and... More

Beef soup was very much to my liking. Stuffed chicken followed and was fine as well. There was a carrot cream added but this has not tasted good. Overall it was a decent meal, although not exceptional.

very good and high level of food with quite interesting meals, fish recommended. The price is a bit higher than Slovenia standards but lower than in Italy. It's worthwhile to try it.

We went to the restaurant after reading all the excellent reviews. In the end only half of the experience lived up to the expectation. That is my wife's food was far from excellent or good and mine was average to good. The service was very good though. It might have been that we got there on a 'bad day'. I... More
