Spotted this one in the "In your pocket" guide and arrived just as a large party were leaving - goos timing.
It's pretty much a comfortable local pub and serves great food. Big plate of tasty cevapcici for me and another vegetable plate for Mrs B, both enjoyed immensely. Again Lasko beer to go with it as well, a good choice for our evening meal.
A little out from the centre, just opposite a shopping centre.
Anyway, a real treat here, fantastic food, just what we like, raznjici for me and a special vegetable plate for herself with ajvar and the wonderful bread only found in this part of the world. Lasko beer on offer too added to the enjoyment, also a favourite.
Enjoyed our evening here.
This restaurant located around the corner from the tourist info center had an amazing lunch deal. A high end restaurant with a lovely modern setting, high caliber food that offered HUGE portions we got a soup a two course entree served on one plate and a desert for very reasonable price. This is not by most standards a budget deal but if you are willing a little above budget it is well worth your money.
Gostilnica Puccini is situated in the very heart of the old core of the town, on Tomšicev trg.
In the summer time you can enjoy in lovely terrace and perfect view at the Main Square.
Favorite Dish: Gostilnica is local name for inn, which is not that classy like restaurant but it offers cheaper and, in my opinion, better food. Here you can have Italian dishes, such as pasta's, lasagne, pizza and mixed salads.
Beautiful environment, nice service and tasty food. If I tell you the true, I visit it almost everyday - usually for a drink but sometimes also for some food.
Favorite Dish: Everything is delicious, so I don't know what to decide for.
Recently I've been ordering pizza - half tuna half meat. Yummy!
After having enjoyed the Spa with VT friend Tania, we went to this place where we had a fantastic meal!
We we sitting outside on a covered terrace and the atmosphere and ambiance were great!.
When we decided to order a fishdish (my favourite dishes as you know) the waiter came with an enormous tray on which were 4 colourful fish arranged so we could see how fresh they were (their eyes!) and how good they smelled.....
We decided to have the ......(have to look that one up!) and that meant that they would prepare that one big, beautiful fish, after having WEIGHED it because fish is paid for by weight......
Favorite Dish: Of course the fish we chose!!
The time it took the chef to prepare our fish was a fine moment to talk about VT, Celje, Spas, friendship, the wonderful weather, languages, translating, jobs, family, education and so much more that we suddenly saw our fish arrive......carried (lolol) by the waiter, who was extremely friendly and polite and helpful.....
Actually this is a "chain" of restaurants. You will also find 2 Puccini restaurants in Ljubljana.
It's basically Italian restaurant with wide variety of pasta, but what I love most is their salad bar. All sorts of fresh salads and antipasti. They also offer a daily menu, so check that out too.
I usually don't eat in restaurants when at home, but used to eat a lot in Ljubljana since this restaurant offers coupons for students and makes life of "future intelectuals" much easier and sated ;)
Favorite Dish: besides the above mentioned salads I would say black/white tagliatelle with rucola.
We ate at Gostilnica Puccini, which is a member of the Italian chain. The food was still quite decent, especially the salad bar which even had mussels (you can't get them in Ljubljana).
Favorite Dish: besides salad bar also pasta al quatro formaggi
Pub attached to the Hotel Štorman. Busy and friendly place with a good choice on the menu. Mrs B happy with vegetarian options and a decent steak for me - very good!
Never ate there, Tanja`s Mom was a great cook, but supposedly great pasta and salad bar.
Favorite Dish: Personally, I`d stay away from the pizza, I found them not as stiff as I normally like.
My fave food there's salat. In a nice environment you can choose a lot of different kinds of salat from a salat bar. Of course you can get other European food, too.
