Experts from the Gault & Millau guide evaluate restaurants, other food establishments, shops, hotels, etc., in accordance with carefully prepared criteria and using anonymous reviewers who visit the establishment unannounced. Particular attention is paid to specific local elements that reflect an authentic character. The highest-rated establishments receive the Ljubljana Quality Mark.
In recent years Ljubljana has been experiencing a gastronomic boom that has attracted the attention of the international public. To reflect this, in 2019 Ljubljana Tourism decided to upgrade the Ljubljana Quality project through a collaboration with the internationally renowned gastronomic guide Gault & Millau. This prestigious guide, first published in France in 1972, is today present in more than 20 countries and is considered one of the leading institutions on the world gastronomic scene.
