Best of Ljubljana Restaurants 2023

22 Sep 2023

Welcome to the annual Best of Ljubljana Awards voting!

Over the twelve years we’ve been running the Best of Ljubljana competitions, we’ve seen some major changes on the restaurant scene. Ljubljana boasts thousands (Ok, maybe not quite that many) of places to eat, and with the arrival of Restaurant Week back in 2012, dining options have rocketed. We’ve seen new places open and bring their own twist to traditional favourites, we’ve said goodbye to other places and still miss them, and we’ve seen others continue to work hard through some of the toughest of times as they strive to bring us their best dishes - and we swear the standard of cuisine on offer just keeps getting better and better. 

Best of Ljubljana Restaurants 2023

We all need to eat somewhere or somehow so this is without doubt one of the most important voting sections of the competition. With so many places to choose from we’ve broken them down into 13 categories, from street food and brunch, to fine dining and business lunch - plus everything in between. Now is your chance to show support for your favourite restaurants. Who do you want to see crowned category winners of this year’s Best of Ljubljana Restaurants?
