The bistro is situated in the heart of the historical village of Štanjel. we've visited for lunch and we could choose between 3, 4 and 5 course tasting menu. We've opted for the 4 one. The menu was based on local ingredients like local pork...breed Krškopoljec prosciutto, aged in their own cellar, local cheese, home made beetroot gnocchi all spiced up with local herbs that can be found in the Karst region. They offer local (biodynamic) wines and the cherry on the top was their own homemade vermouth where again they used local herbs. If you are looking for smart, elegant but non pretentious food, you will enjoy this experience. The venue itself it seems elegant and modern, but on the same time it enhances the local traditional architecture. We've visited the place on a February Sunday but I can only imagine how beautiful can it be in a hot summer night, seating on the beautiful terrace. The bistro is a family run business and the family style warm hospitality can be felt on every step. For sure a place to return.More

I was their big fan in Kobjeglava. After they moved I didn’t knew what to expect. The atmosphere, service and the food were amazing! I think this is the best restaruant in the area! The gnocchi plate was my favourite. They were also very nice...to our kids and pepared some really nice plates for them.More

Their previous restaurant Kobjeglava was our favourite in the area, last year they moved to Grad Štanjel. Setting and interior is relaxed and warm place to be. Inside (restaurant part) they serve 4/6/8 course menus. Their ingredients are on really high level and they favour...local suppliers of meat, cheese and veggies. Wine list is impressive, best advice is to leave their sommelier suggest wine pairing with each dish. Take a look at the food pictures, they speak for them selves. Kindness and professionalism of the owners and all serving staff is on the level of the best restaurants we visited. I highly recommend a visit if you are in the area.More

We've been to Grad Stanjel a couple of times and we've always had an amazing experience. I recommended it to many of my friends and they all enjoyed very much. We loved every single plate. They also have a great selection of wines, and special...gin & tonics. Can't wait to go back😍Thank you!More

A great culinary afternoon spent in Grad Štanjel. We came for “teden restavracij” which happens every spring and fall in Slovenia. We chose a 5 course menu with a wine pairing done by sommelier Tine. We wished to explore the Carst region and the local...producers so he poured us 12 different wines to taste. Every single course was amazing. The combination of tastes was above our expectations. We both left full but not too full, just enough…And my boyfriend eats alot 😄 The atmosphere inside and outside is very homely and cozy..as is the staff that works there, you can feel the family energy. We will come back for sure 💯More
