As majority of people I have to say that the scenery in Kobarid is amazing and definitely worth spending a weekend or even better a week. But this isn't the main point of this review, the main focus is the food, the service, friendliness, availability, quality, accommodation, ... and more features that define this high end restaurant in the outskirts of Slovenia.
So to start off with the food would be the logical way, we decided to go with max menue, the dishes were new, made of local ingredients and special overall a masterpiece in regard of playing with your taste buds. If you like something new and different you should pay them a visit.
Service was good, what I have lacked are Slovenian speaking bartenders, we got served ca. 3 dishes by Slovenian speaking waiter, the remainder was in Croatian or English which did arrouse a negative feeling, although we were explained at the beginning that this might happen.
Something about wines, the somelier was a bit insulted as we didn't go with the wine selection which he has prepared for the evening, so my wine glass was empty on a couple of occasions for quite sometime, this was a second slightly negative experience. But in his defence the wines proposed by him which we had were amazing.
Accommodation, the room was amazing with a terrace and a massag tub, this is a must do if visiting Hiša Franco, the rooms are I think 9 and 10.
General staff friendliness was genuine and on the high level so everybody made you feel welcome.
Breakfast, was one of then best breakfasts I had in my life, local food and tasty seasonal dishes.
Overall, it was a really nice experience, but the pricing was just crazy (for Slovenian standards) which also made me compare this event to my past gourmet experiences and if I look at the price/performance, it is not the top of what Slovenia can offer. Nevertheless I would recommed a visit to anyone.
Thanks for a nice evening to the Staff of HF.
