Located just over the river below the castle, Sokol is a good place for Slovenian food. Yes, a bit touristy, but still ok. Portions are large enough. Soup in breadbowl pretty tasty. Schnitzel solid. Our waiter did serve our group dessert that was not agreed upon prior to our visit, and when asked about this, he said it would be on him. Not quite sure if he was attempting a scam, but he did make up for it when I called him out. Otherwise a good dinner.

Very disappointed with everything about this place, except for the location. I had deer in a sour cherry sauce, or that was what I was told - it was so over-cooked it could have been anything. The meals were bland, the staff were attentive. This is over-priced food aimed very much at tourists. Not a single Slovenian in here.

This was the first restaurant we visited once we arrived in Slovenia. Good food, big portions, great service and very traditional setting. We loved the beer brewed by the restaurant.

I came with my girlfriend to this old restaurant in Ljubljana and we ordered a fish plate. Everythink was delicious maybe only calamari were bit chewy. We had also delicious wine. Waiter was very polite.

The restaurant is convenient and it looks authentic. The decor looks good and the menu is extensive. However our dishes were very basic and ordinary. The soup was thin and watery. The roast pork was fatty. The side of roast vegetables was good and so was the “homemade beer”. I was hungry and ate it all but I would not visit again. Service was slow, even though the restaurant was not full. This looks like a tourist trap.
