Fresh. Local. Home-made.

The flavours of Slovenia are flavours of locally produced ingredients. We stand by the principle ‘from the garden to the plate’. Spices and herbs from the nearest garden or meadow, vegetables from the field of Slovenian farmers. We pick mushrooms and berries in the vast forests, milk and dairy products come from the mountains, and honey is sourced from the apiaries of local beekeepers. Dishes that are prepared in countryside taverns and agritourism farms, as well as by renowned chefs in award-winning restaurants, are based on traditional recipes and local specialties. Guests are offered what is produced locally. Welcome to our kitchen!
