In terms of total experience, it's hard to imagine a place better than this. Reservations are a must. I understand that they are booked at least a month in advance for dinner. Entrance to the castle itself is free with a dinner reservation.
We were part of a very large party having dinner at the castle and they were able to accommodate us well. We were offered options in a set menu situation varied enough that everyone in our party was able to have something they enjoyed.

From the wines, to the amuse bouche, to the entrees, to the desserts, the food was beautifully presented and delicious.

Of course, a dinner in a castle is special. The view from this castle, however, is spectacular. While the castle is 1000 years old, the dining room is airy, light filled and modern.

Be prepared to encounter a busy parking situation. There is a gentleman directing traffic in the parking lot. Tell him you have restaurant reservations and he will help to find a spot. I don't know if the restaurant is handicapped accessible. One of our party had difficulty climbing the very long staircase from the parking lot and then again from the castle ground floor to the restaurant itself. Something to check on before going, if this may present a problem.

What a lovely experience it was. One of our best meals in Slovenia.

I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. The service and the food matches the amazing views. We had some of the best food we have had for some time.

It is listed as an expensive restaurant which is not entirely fair - e.g. main courses from
€16, large side salad €5, the best chocolate fondant you will find €6. Service is attentive too. Just perfect

We visited the castle and booked a table for 4 in the outside restaurant, we arrived early evening and had an amazing table on the edge with spectacular views.
The waiters were amazing, very knowledgeable and very friendly, they knew all about the wines and suggested suitable drinks for our meal. They most certainly helped to make this experience perfect. There was no rushing, and our evening was very relaxing.
The food was tremendous, and the set meal was very reasonable, taking into account of the stunning venue, highly educated waiters and supreme chief. As the evening cooled, blankets were provided.
This is a Must do on a visit to Lake Bled. Thank You all, from the Welsh lot x

We went for a meal, and had a wonderful experience. From the table overlooking the lake to the attentive and informed waiter, I couldn't fault it. Try the Doppler Efekt wine; come for the pun, stay for the impressive Slovenian wine!

We booked this 3 weeks in advance and get a table on the terrace with amazing views of lake bled. Evening food was a set tasting menu with 2 options per course. All of it was divine and although not on the super cheap side definitely worth the extra money. Kids shared a plate of homemade pasta with black truffles which they loved. Best thing about eating here is that you get to visit the castle after hours for free, so if you were planning to visit the castle anyway you would save the money which makes the meal price much more reasonable. Good parking and a short walk up a relatively steep path to the castle entrance.
