Ljubljana - Post Report Question and Answers

What typical restaurants, food delivery services, and/or takeout options are popular among expatriates?

Restaurants: Slovenska hisa: the best Slovenian food I had in the country. Generous portions and fairly inexpensive. El Patron: best tacos I’ve had outside of the United States and Mexico. This place holds it own vs. taco shops in certain major metropolitan areas in the United States. Le Petit Cafe: best brunch in Ljubljana. Quite affordable. Recommend reserving a table on the weekends. Pop’s Place: solid burgers, nice beer selection. Verace: best pizza in Ljubljana. Neapolitan style. Robba: good all around restaurant. Nice lunch menu options. Atelje: was recently awarded Michelin Star, I believe. Dinner is quite expensive, but they offer very nice and affordable lunch menus. Maharaja: surprisingly decent Indian food. Not the best you will find in the world, but works in a pinch. On Thai: my favorite Thai spot in Slovenia. Good and affordable. More of a take out place, there aren’t many tables. Sushimama: good sushi. For drinks, I would suggest the following: Kolibri: craft cocktails in a speakeasy type bar. Best drinks you will find in the country Lajbah: great craft beer bar Spica: nice outdoor cafe/bar along the Ljubljanica river Hotel Slon bar: nice environment - Jun 2022

Very good restaurants with wide range in price. Burger King, McDonalds and Subway all have a presence. Local fast food ( kebab shops) are readily available. - May 2016

McDonald's, Burger King and many more. Bic Mac meal costs around 6 Euro. - Jul 2014

MacDonald's and Burger King are available. If you're used to spicy or heavy tasted food like I am, you won't like the Slovene cuisine. But there are a few dishes that are very good. Try the Kremna Resina in Bled. Serbian cuisine is more spicy and has a stronger taste. One example is the Cevapcici dish. - Aug 2011

All the usual fast food restaurants, but why would you want to eat there?There are many decent restaurants and cost is reasonable. - Jun 2011
