Best Restaurants in Slovenia

more than a year ago
Influenced by centuries of Austro-Hungarian rule, as well as by the neighbouring countries of Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia in more contemporary times, Slovene cuisine nevertheless maintains a uniqueness all its own. In recent years, the country's gastronomic scene has begun to flourish from the shores of Mediterranean Sea in the west to the Alps in the north to the Pannonian Plains in the east, with a general emphasis placed upon fresh locally sourced ingredients, and traditional recipes reinterpreted in a variety of interesting ways.

Earlier this year, our readers voted for their favourite restaurants in and around the capital of Ljubljana, and now it's time to do the same for the rest of the country. For the sake of clarity, we've divided the categories into four geographic regions, and narrowed* the selection down to 20 finalists (10 in the case of Dolenjska). Thanks in advance to everyone who votes and best of luck to all the nominees!

*Please don't cheat in our poll. By cheating we mean using technological means to vote multiple times in the same poll. Individual computers, phones and other devices are allowed to vote once per week for the duration of the competition. Unfortunately, as Angela Merkel can tell you, nothing on the internet is 100% secure. Nevertheless, we take every reasonable precaution to prevent cheating in our polls, and we also reserve the right to not count votes that were obviously cast through illegitimate means, and/or take other necessary action in such circumstances. If you decide to cheat anyway, please don't get angry and threaten us with legal action when/if we catch you. We are only trying to keep the polls as fair as possible, and we can assure you that we NEVER favour one venue over another. We honestly don't care who wins any given poll, as long as the votes of our readers are counted fairly and equally. If you'd like further explanation of our rules or have any questions regarding our poll, please feel free to email us at ljubljana@inyourpocket.com.
