2017 Best Restaurants in Ljubljana

04 Dec 2017

Ljubljana, and Slovenia as a whole, is increasingly becoming a foodie destination with its abundance of diverse flavours on full display, from hearty local specialties to high-quality international cuisine. Numerous projects have sprung up across Slovenia, including Taste Ljubljana, to increase the reputation and visibility of traditional cuisine in Ljubljana.

We invited everyone to participate and vote for who their favourites were. As always, we shortlisted the categories to help the process go along as seamlessly as possible, this time shortening it down to 9 categories: fine dining, breakfast, lunch break, world food, pizza, burgers, vegan, Slovenian, Balkan. But it was up to the voters to have the final say.

The people of Ljubljana are hungry and we know just where to feed them.
