Experience culinary autumn in Slovenia

Autumn is ideal for treating your taste buds to special delicacies. Fresh produce from the fields, orchards, vineyards, and plantations enrich every dish on your table. This is why autumn gastronomic events rich with the aroma of local delicacies are worth visiting. If you’d rather enjoy a tasty lunch or dinner in a warmly inviting place, visit selected Slovenian ‘gostilnas’ (traditional restaurants) and restaurants, where you will be offered special themed menus for gourmets. The most colourful season is known for the scent of roasted chestnuts and celebrations in wine cellars. So, are you ready for autumn gastronomic experiences?

May your heart guide you ...

Restaurant Week is a unique opportunity for you to learn about the charms of Slovenia's world-class cuisine. If you are a foodie, then make sure to visit one of the 105 participating restaurants, where chefs will do their best to impress you. And don’t make any excuses that you can’t afford it. The menus in all restaurants are available at a single, affordable price. When deciding where to go, you’ll be assisted by the heart symbols used to rate the participating restaurants.
