Located next to the legendary bar of the same name, this location on Rimska Cesta has undergone various renovations and used almost as many names over the years, but Žmauc won international fame in 2020 when it was featured on the premier episode of season two of Netflix's series Restaurants on the Edge. With its low arched ceilings, moody red walls and touch of rustic furnishings this homey low-key restaurant has already become one of our favourite places to come when we're in the mood for traditional Slovene cuisine in a great setting. Fresh homemade dishes of all sorts are are the speciality here, including deer, fish and wood-baked meats, and the menu changes daily depending on the season and whims of the head chef. Even the beer, juice and brandy is homemade, and there's also an excellent selection of Slovene wines.
