    Address: Breg 10, Ljubljana

    When you pass by it is the gorgeous outside terrace among old vines that catches your eye. When you step in, three warm-lit rooms offer a cosy ambience. Šuklje, a prominent wine family from the Bela Krajina region, opened their wine bar on Breg (The Embankment) in Ljubljana in 2017. The young generation is in charge: enologists Katja and Bordeaux-native Guillame create the wine list, and Matija and (the other) Katja, run the place. The wine list is well organized by region and grape variety and characterizes the wines comparing them to music styles. From “easy pop” to “heavy metal” and “mast...

    Address: Mestni trg 2, Ljubljana

    Movia is a tiny, dimly lit wine bar in the very centre of Ljubljana, next door to the Town Hall. As its name suggests it belongs to one of the most famous Slovenian wineries. And surely one might come here to explore Movia wines, especially since most of them are served by the glass. Besides, a unique collection of older vintages is there for the curious mind. One of my most memorable nights here included Movia’s 1995 Merlot and trust me, it was an experience! That alone could be enough to be a great place but Movia carries plenty of bottles, both internationally recognized labels and young...

    Address: Dvorni trg 2, Ljubljana

    The wine bar scene was very sleepy in the centre of Ljubljana at the beginning of the 2000s, but Dvorni Bar, which opened in 2005, revolutionized the atmosphere. While the international wine list is rather limited and basic, it's a must-visit destination for those wishing to explore Slovenian wine. With more than 80 wines offered by the glass, it extensively covers all Slovenian wine regions and styles. When you sit on the lovely terrace by the river bank of the Ljubljanica river, overlooking the castle and the old town, time seems to stop, at least for a couple of glasses, or ... hmm ... ma...

    Address: Trubarjeva cesta 72, Ljubljana

    Recently reopened in a new location in the former Yugoslavian Rog factory, TaBar got a new vibe. Brutalist, minimalistic concrete interior is contrasted by the greenery inside and out. They started to serve an homage to traditional Slovenian plates for lunch and in September will open a fine dining room. But the imaginative touch of the chef Jakob Pintar stayed the same: his signature small plates to share, aka “Slovenian tapas”, are the still here. Seasonal and traceable ingredients are the key. Wine list by the co-owner and somm Jurij Osole is perhaps one of the most unapologetic ones a...

    Chef Janez Bratovž (JB) stands as one of the founding fathers of Slovenian haute cuisine. He launched the family-run restaurant in 2001, and ever since it has remained a beacon of culinary excellence. Creativity, honesty, and precision are words which best describe this culinary gem nestled in the heart of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, within a house designed by the famed Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik. Now, over twenty years later, his son Tomaž is assuming the helm of the kitchen, while the wine list receives meticulous attention from his daughter Nina, who clinched the prestigious...
