It can hardly get any better then Pavus. We were astonished. Perfect ambient in an old castle, that is the first thing you noticed. Perfect ambient inside is the second thing you noticed. Warm, comfortable and domestic. Dinning experience is probably the best we have ever taken. Pavus is for us, at this moment, the best restaurant in Slovenia. And... More

Creative combinations and very tasty dishes - each one of them! Especially liked the starters and the dessert. The stuff is incredibly kind and informative, and can help you select the right drinks and offer a complementary course. Regarding the location and ambient: It is in a castle, it does not get better than that! A great experience, I strongly... More

The food was divine, service very kind and the chef came to every table. There were three courses in small portions but you don't go home hungry because it's slow food and it leaves you with a nice filing in your stomach. I recommend it 😉

Pavus is a must, if you are staying at Lasko's spas or just passing by. The restaurant is located in a castle. The food is excellent! I was also pleasantly surprised by the matching wines, well-done!

You should pop-up to the castle of Laško even if you just wanna admire the view...As soon as you arrive at the caste, you will spot people sitting on teracce and fine dinning. And more you will try to recognize the food on plates, more you will be intrigged...don't wait, try this food, made out of local herbs, rare/ancient vegtables... More
