It's a little bit of a walk outside the main square but your exertions are worth it. The service was attentive if a little too detailed. Still the food was great. We loved the Tuna and the risotto. My husband ordered those two ala carte. I got the tasting menu. The garlic soup with a prawn was my favorite. I also really liked the John Dory entree. The cinnamon ice cream was a nice way to end the meal. We sat in the outside area which was intimate and congenial. We would go again.

That terrible situation dreaded by most travellers when you are looking for a special place to enjoy your last meal in a country and you know from experience that the harder you try the more likely you'll be disappointed. Not so with Manna. Our interest was piqued by the online reviews we read but not entirely sold, we ended up in the general vicinity of the restaurant (slightly away from the main Triple Bridge centre but the city is tiny, so it's still right there!) at about time to eat, so decided that we might as well, as nothing else was grabbing us. After overcoming the initial disappointment at the fixed lunch menu that was offered to us, we were able to order from the much more exciting full menu. and wow! Starters of wild boar ragu with local dumplings and veal tartar, mains of roast pork neck and lamb shank, all presented creatively and expertly with inventive and delicious sides, sauces and accompaniments, partnered with a fantastic Slovenian red off an outstanding wine list, and all enjoyed in a very cool and attractive environment and provided with excellent service. Probably fair to say that this was easily our best dining experience in Ljubljana. Strongly recommended.

On our first night out in Ljubljana we had a dinner reservation at Manna. We tried the tasting menu with a wine pairing which the waiter composed for us. The meal was both cheap and tasty. Our waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable, which turned the score from a 3 to a 4. We had to wait quite a while for the different courses and our experience was good but not great because of that. In addition, one of our dishes was switched because “something happened in the kitchen.” My favorite dish was the decomposed strudel and my boyfriend’s favorite dish was the tuna. We recommend this place if you are looking for good value for money.

This place is outside the city center but walkable from there. More local people go here than tourists. Servers wear semi-formal attire. They eagerly answer questions about menu options. They explain each dish as they present it. They are very attentive. We never had to refill our wine glasses. Food was well prepared and presented. We were very satisfied with food and service. We sat in their outdoor covered patio. A shower occurred during our meal but we were well protected.

We booked this restaurant ahead of our stay in Ljubljana and were not disappointed. We opted for the tasting menu. My wife decided to opt for the fish dishes, whereas I also included some meat dishes. The dishes were all of a small size and artfully prepared. We requested local Slovenian wines to match and were pleasantly surprised. The service was friendly and the waiting times in between courses were just about right. The total bill was just over € 100 for the two us. Reasonable for the type of culinary experience we enjoyed.
