Discover the best that Ljubljana has to offer when it comes to cuisine. The top-ranking restaurants selected by experts from prestigious food guide Gault & Millau receive the Ljubljana Quality Mark.


In recent years Ljubljana has been experiencing a gastronomic boom. Ljubljana’s chefs, restaurants and traditional local dishes are becoming increasingly well known around the world.

Ljubljana cuisine is distinguished by high-quality seasonal ingredients locally sourced from farms in the surrounding area, the creative use of traditional recipes, and a diversity of choice that includes everything from traditional Slovene dishes to classics of international cuisine and exotic specialities.

Who are the recipients of the Ljubljana Quality Mark?

The Ljubljana Quality project is run by Ljubljana Tourism in conjunction with Gault & Millau Slovenia. Experts from the prestigious guide evaluate restaurants, “POP” establishments (bars, tapas bars, patisseries, fast food establishments, etc.), shops, and so on in accordance with carefully prepared criteria and using anonymous reviewers who visit the establishment unannounced. Recipients of the Ljubljana Quality Mark are published in the Gault & Millau Ljubljana food guide.
