Lovely traditional Slovenian food, but vegetarian/vegan. Our understanding was that all dishes are vegetarian but could also be made vegetarian. So good we went twice - the first day for pasta and the second for salads. Reasonably priced also.

We had an amazing meal here. It was great being able to try traditional Slovenian food, but vegetarian and vegan alternatives. We had the dumplings (with the cheese and onion sauce) which were so good, and an incredible cabbage salad with pumpkin seed oil which...was so fresh and delicious (we don't particularly recommend the mushroom polenta). We also came back a second time just for their pumpkin seed icecream which was lovely. The waiting staff were really friendly and made good recommendations, and the prices were very reasonable (we had read a few reviews saying it was a little pricey, but actually, this seemed like some of the best food at a good value that we had in Ljubljana). After a disappointing meal the next day we wished we'd come back a third time :P Would definitely recommend for veggies/vegans.More

Dinner- the famous bograc stew with seitan and tofu was very flavorful and well seasoned. Didn't miss meat in this at all. Minimally spicy. The dodole with onions and creme were good, but very dense and filling. The gibanica poppyseed cake was great- worth the...trip. One piece plenty for two. Our waiter was helpful and had excellent English.More

We celebrated my husbands birthday, the food was ok. But! The service is TERRIBLE. The young waiter was rude and arrogant. We orderded also goat cheese which was a total rip off, we got three slim pieces for 15 eur! We orderd wine and when...I asked.the waiter for info, from where the wine comes from, he was quiet! He did not even bother to answer me. And they didnt even bother to put white wine bottle in the cooler! When i kindly asked them to do so, 4 waiters just watched me as if I fell off the Moon. Well, we got the wine cooler, but one should get that automaticly. I had to ask for it after half and hour! If you put prices like this, you expect normal service! After we finished, we had to wait 10 minutes for the dirty dishes to be picked by arrogant staff. You know what? We didnt feel wellcome, so...they will not sem our money again, hope this helps fellow travelers.More

It's got a nice vibe to it. Visited after a recommendation from the tour guide. The Vegan plate (entree) is great for a light dinner, if a little pricey.

Absolutely loved this very reasonably priced restaurant. There were a few traditional slovenian foods that I wanted to try, and my waiter was happy to offer me a plate of small portions so I could try a few things as I was travelling alone. My...meal was served with a bottle of pumpkin seed oil on the side, which is one of my favourite things about eating out in slovenia! I would highly recommend this restaurant and it's in a very central location.More

I like this place even more now that it's vegetarian/vegan. Meat eaters just loved their vegan bograč, you should definitely try it. I love their dödoli and now that they have vegan sour cream available, it was just a-m-a-z-i-n-g. And, of course, the pumpkin oil...- a delicacy from the Eastern part of Slovenia. When you're in Ljubljana, try this restaurant and you won't be disappointed.More

I visited Gujzina with family visiting, including two older people. The waiter was rude from the beginning, it took him forever to take the order. When the two older people asked him something, he rudely replied that everything is written in the menu - not...even considering that they don't see well and that they just kindly asked him for help. It pains me to think that he acted like that towards them. When asked to recommend us wine, the waiter was once again rude and dismissive. For all the money we ended up spending there, we didn't even get a basket of bread to go with the soup. As much as their food is tasty, it is not worth going there if the service stays as bad - it will ruin your evening.More

Excellent food and super friendly staff ❤️ I tried home made vegan plate for starter and baked dödöle with vegan bograč. I couldn’t decide on deserts, so I ordered chocolate pudding with soy whipped cream and took all vegan pies to go. I will definitely...come back, need to try every item on the menu. Keep up the good work ❤️More
