Ptuj (pronounced [ˈptuːi̯] ( listen); German: Pettau; Latin: Poetovium/Poetovio) is a town in northeastern Slovenia that is the seat of the Municipality of Ptuj. Ptuj, the oldest recorded city in Slovenia, has been inhabited since the late Stone Age and developed from a Roman military fort. Ptuj was located at a strategically important crossing of the Drava River, along a prehistoric trade route between the Baltic Sea and the Adriatic. Traditionally the area was part of the Styria region and became part of the Austria-Hungarian Empire. In the early 20th century the majority of the residents were of German extraction, but today the population is largely Slovenes. Residents of Ptuj are known as Ptujčani.

We visited the restaurant on our trip back from Croatia and had a sleep over in Ptuj.
The restaurant is located in the city center, in walking distance from city located hotels. The restaurant is a nice spacious room with sufficient tables.
The waitress came quickly and delivered the menu in a friendly way.
The amount of dishes is medium sized, fish (sea and freshwater) and sea food, beef, chicken, pork, soups and freshly prepared salads.
Some dishes do have a local influence but not overly.
The beer and wine list consists of the usual local wines (as Ptuj is a decent and well known wine region) Merlot, Teran, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Rizlink, Traminec etc.
We decided for a variety of dishes as we were a party of four.
Salads and mushroom soup (local porcinis) as starters.
All was fresh and of good taste but not exceptional.
The main dishes were breaded cheese with sauce tartar and French fries, trout with almonds, breaded pork escalope, penne con salmone and a rumpsteak medium with vegetables.
As a wine I had Modra Frankovka (which is a good choice with well seasoned dishes).
The rumpsteak was medium rare just covered with too much side dishes, I would have preferred it with less. Good and tender meat quality.
The pork escalope was huge, almost too much but the quality was tasty but not exceptional.
So was the trout and the cheese.
All together we paid with a decent tip 90€, which is absolutely Ok for the given quality.
We were the very last guests as they close early but they never rushed us with anything. Friendly staff!
Good quality for a reasonable price. I guess this is one of the best places in Ptuj area to eat with friends or family.

The food here is great and delicious. It comes fast and the prices are reasonable. I've been here a lot of times and it was always great.

It was a very good 'local speciality' meal of a sort of burger mixed with cheese and pitta type bread. Really enjoyed it with a decent salad. Good value for the price.

Gostilna Ribič (Ribich) is a restaurant with 25 years of culinary excelence in the city of Ptuj. Located directly on the bank of the river Drava, the restaurant offers a romantic ambient that adds a relaxing touch to the culinary experience. Although the restaurant is famed for its fish dishes, we also take pride in our meat dishes that have been re-imagined in a modern culinary style that reflects the local region. Fresh and local produce are at the core of our work and we inspire to bring forth the best that our region has to offer. A modern culinary experience in a historic town - We welcome you to Gostilna Ribič. It had some ups and downs but now we are in full power to make it the best.
Having had a disappointing meal at the other top-rated restaurant in Ptuj, we half-expected another tourist trap serving poor food badly. What a difference!
The restaurant is not grand, but really pleasant. The service was prompt, informative and friendly. The sweetbread cannelloni we shared was superb. We then shared a seafood platter: perch, bream, octopus, squid and langostino on a bed of vegetables. Great presentation, great tastes, enough for 3 or 4 people. Reasonably priced for the quality. Highly recommended.

Very reasonably priced restaurant. Made mistake of arriving for late lunch, so very little self service food left - empty bowls for salad, but plenty of soup. But main course food was very tasty & low prices.

Visited Muzikafe with friends. The ambient is nice but that's all. As it seems they don't have enough money to pay normal waitresses - instead of them the prefer unmotivated young students who are to lazy to serve in the cellar part....we were there for almost two hours - nobody cared if we would drink another beer....definitely bad performance......

This restaurant surprised is with very good service and for lunch we got a 4 course menu for only 11€. The food was very good and it was a very pleasant short stay. The place has a huge terrasse and nice shadow.

We offer wide range of international and domestical food. Our specialty is steaks and fish on charcoal grill. We also offer over 30 different kinds of home-made ice cream and desserts.
Good varied menu in a clean place, maybe a bit lacking in atmosphere and the guy serving was very busy so rushing about a lot, still polite and friendly though with very good English. Food was very good. Handy location.

Someone once said that life was a long winding road, but we also know that life without turns would be quite boring. The inn "pri Ovinku" (at a turn) is situated at the outskirts of Ptuj and is definitely worth a detour, for it has quite some pleasant experiences in store for its visitors. Quality and fresh ingredients are mostly of Slovene origin, preferably of local production.
A restaurant that offers tasty local food. They also serve lunch. Not the best and not the worst in area.
