Cuk Gostilna Pizzeria

Reviewed By Joky80 - Gothenburg, Sweden

We ended up here while searching for something to eat after visiting the Postojna Caves. Seems to the restaurant of a tennis club so the location isn’t the best. The service was OK but a bit slow occasionally. Food was good, we tried some different dishes like pizzas, goulash, pasta etc. and everything tasted well. Prices were on an OK level, most of the dishes cost around 9 EUR each. Another positive thing was that they had a Terrace allowing you to eat outside and a playground just outside where the children could play while waiting for the food.

Avio Pub is located at the recreational airport near Postojna. We offer various types of food (pizzas, salads, steaks, desserts ...). In fine weather, you can watch the planes from our Terrace, while sipping a glass of fine wine from our wide selection.

Gostilna Pri Lojzetu - Castle Zemono

Reviewed By Roland G - Vienna, Austria

i am totally amazed of todays experience in this charming restaurant. The chef came to every table, chatted and took orders.
the staff is totally professional, friendly and have a smile in their faces.
the location is amazing. cant wait to be there in summer time to sit outside and enjoy the view over the vipava valley
it was not a problem to bring my dog wilma with me.
the quality of food you get offered is amazing. every dish is like a piece of art.
last but not least - the prices are more than acceptable. it is more than in normal restaurants bur if you go for slow food and high end you would expect minimum twice the amount.
all in all a perfect time there. that is why we immediatelly made a reservation for my bday kn june.

Majerija

Reviewed By rovingrebel - Dublin, Ireland

My wife and I stayed in Majerija for one night while visiting the Vipava region. We had a tasting menu with wine pairings while there. We would highly recommend it and would love to go back.
The restaurant is in the small village of Slap. There isn't much in the village other than a few houses. Majerija sits overlooking the village and valley. The rooms are underground, which keeps them cool. We visited in the height of a heatwave and the rooms were comfortable. The room was spotless, nicely designed and had a lovely shower.
The restaurant seemed to be fully booked. Everyone was seated inside because they were afraid of rain coming that evening. I gather that on clear evenings you can sit outside. We had a tasting menu which was just delicious. There was a range of fish, meat and vegetable dishes. Where possible they try to use local ingredients. We could hear other tables in the room adapting the menu to dietary requirements so you can do this if you wish. We went with the wine pairings which were all Slovenian wines and complemented the meal well.
The one night stay, with the tasting menu, wine and a bottle of wine that we bought there came to 240e. So not a cheap meal but certainly worth it in my book. I hope to be back again.

Ristorante Pensione Isabella

Reviewed By Jurica P

We got in to this restaurant by accident while driving through Slovenia. It just happens to be locally famous for its great food. You can spot it by the bbq in the front of the restaurant where they bbq. Our meal was delicious: beef soup, wiena steak, apple strudel. Delicious!! Fast service, friendly staff. Defo a great place to stop by for a home made meal.

We almost walked out. We were the only customers when we walked in. We waited and finally seated ourselves. We made noise but no one came till we were getting up to leave. Despite the bad start we had a great dinner and the service was pretty good. It was pricey but we were both quite happy with our meals.

Gostisce Masun

Reviewed By Thakgil - Brussels, Belgium

Gostisce Masun is in a beautiful location, which you can access from the west with an asphalt road and from the East with an enjoyable gravel road in the forest. They serve fresh products, including game (and even bear!). We loved the prosciutto and the venison with morels, for a very reasonable price considering the quality. We would definitely go there again and recommend it to anyone.
