Embark on a Journey Through Slovenia's Green Soul with Michelin

In this article, Michelin delves into Slovenia's green soul, highlighting two exceptional restaurants: Gostilna Vovko in Brusnice and Ošterija Debeluh in Brežice. Gostilna Vovko, a restaurant with nearly 50 years of tradition, offers traditional Dolenjska dishes with a focus on quality ingredients. It was founded in 1977 by Marina and Anton Vovko and is now overseen by Rok Vovko, who continues the family legacy of celebrating local cuisine and hospitality. With a focus on traditional products of Lower Carniola (Dolenjska), the restaurant prides itself on fresh, locally sourced ingredients and meals prepared with care.

"In short, everything here talks of home and family and, as we were saying, the food does too." Sarah Scaparone for Michelin

Meanwhile, Ošterija Debeluh, a family-run gem since 2002, showcases Chef Jure Tomič's masterful cuisine, featuring simple yet refined dishes with seasonal surprises. Established in 2002, the restaurant combines classic charm with modern elegance and boasts an extensive wine cellar featuring over 480 labels from Slovenia and around the world. "

"/.../ the dishes are delicate, perfectly executed in appearance and taste, the service (with gloves) is impeccable /.../" Sarah Scaparone for Michelin
