We loved our meals. They looked great and tasted even better. The service was attentive, our waiter spoke excellent English and made wonderful recommendations on what we should try. There was nothing to "stay away from", but the waiter did tell us what were the best things we had to try ... and his suggestions were perfect.

The restaurant is situated one block back from the river and is busy with both locals and tourists. The waitress was wonderful, spoke great English and was keen to explain the local food and wine. Loved both and received a free glass of a local spirit at the end. No idea what it was, but really nice!

One of the best places we ate in Ljubljana. Located in the middle of the old city. Excellent local food, a little more upscale than some others.

MY BIRTHDAY, Jennie - my wife's - birthday, wedding anniversary etc...we'd just been too busy to celebrate these at home. Then came Slovenia...and time for a few hours together, to relax and...to CELEBRATE!! Julija is a superbly placed restaurant in the 'Old Square', sheltered and yet, very atmospheric. I guess it's time for the food..
Squid and Steak...for Me and Jennie respectively. Adriatic squid is amazing, tender, textured and tasty...much better than North Sea stuff here. Mine was the best I have ever eaten...the steak was brilliantly cooked, tender and superbly garnished...the Slovenian Merlot complemented the dishes brilliantly. The BEST...
Staff...just brilliant, interactive, helpful and knew when to come to the table, or leave us alone. None better. The best meal I can remember and surely to be repeated when I next return to Ljubljana.

We came here while staying in town for a few days. We ate at various places and this one was the highlight. The food was excellent and the service was friendly and efficient. It was very busy the night that we were there, so it may be a good idea to book if you want to come.
