We end up at Gostilna Samrin after two border crossings and a scenic detour on our way from Zagreb to Split, Croatia.
Reasonably priced, we order two glasses of red wine, Wiener Schnitzel and a Ljubljana Steak (Schnitzel stuffed with ham and cheese). Our order comes with a large basket of bread and a salad which was fresh for us had too much dressing.
We did not far there to be a language barrier and would definitely visit again.

Restaurant Hotel Bela krajina

Reviewed By Marco125 - Ljubljana

We made "pit stop" in Metlika on the way to Croatia. We stayed second time in this hotel. First time i was here in 2011. The hotel Bela krajina is situated in old town of Metlika just 1km before border with Croatia. It is small family run hotel. Rooms are very clean and well maintained. We took a dinner in hotel restaurant. The staff was friendly and very accomodating. First they welcome us with traditional local bred called "pogacha". Very helpful lady offered us local wine Crnina and house meat plate for 4 persons. Delicious! You have to try pancakes with ice cream and cranberries. I definitely recommend it.

Elegant dining in a small town - extensive menu, table linens, professional wait staff, good selection of wines, friendly owner who personally drove us to our hotel when we asked if they would call a taxi.

Reviewed By Betty668988 - Alberta, Canada

We were surprised to find such an elegant restaurant in such a small town. Table linens were spotless and linen napkins were all folded in classic patterns. Our server was professional and friendly and spoke very good English, giving good advice about menu selections. We chose fresh squid which was the most tender we've ever had and served with a very good eggplant stirfry and huge salad. Everything was seasoned perfectly. Our only regret is that we did not find this restaurant sooner as we would have eaten there every night we were in the area! To top off a very pleasurable experience, we asked if they would call a taxi for us and the owner of the restaurant insisted on driving us to our hotel himself.

Wine house Pecaric

Bela krajina is home to our 20,000 vines, which stand as a testament to the power of the sun and the soil. Diversity in the vineyard and skilfulness in the wine cellar enable us to produce still as well as sparkling wines and dry as well as naturally sweet wines. Through our presentation you will become acquainted with our wines and if you like, we can prepare cold cuts with home-made dried meat and cheese and a flat cake.

Reviewed By Tejko

We were with our friends on wine tasting and it was fabolous. Very friendly hosts, perfect wines and delicious traditional snacks.
We started with their own sparkling wines; they have four different, in wine cellar where sparkling wines are aged.
And then continiued with wines they produce and with traditional bread pogača and other delitious food.
All that for very low price in range 30 EUR per person, depends on how many samples of wine do you try; I believe it is the best value for that price.

Gostisce Veselic

Reviewed By Miha P - Maribor, Slovenia

Metliška Vigred, summer fair in Metlika medieval city is happy gathering of locals and some tourists. Gostišče Veselič prepared one of the bigger stands with fresh food in the middle of the fair. They served just basic food (some soup, čevapčiči, frites and similar) but it was good enough for all hungry, happy visitors.
Food ansd service was not as good as in the main house in Podzemelj but it was tasteful.
