Where to eat the most sustainably?

Slovenians are aware that nature itself creates the most genuine flavours. This is why they swear by ingredients produced in harmony with nature, local character and the seasons of the year. Many restaurants in Slovenia have their own circle of local suppliers or even their own gardens or fields where they obtain the ingredients for their dishes. In doing so, they respect tradition and present it to guests in a new, original way. Restaurants that are particularly devoted to sustainability have gained the Slovenia Green Cuisine label. Get to know them and choose the dishes that you’ll like best.
