Where To Eat In Slovenia – Reviews Of The Best Restaurants

Asking where to eat is probably one of the most common questions anyone visiting a certain place would ask. We can answer this burning dining question with a single word: Everywhere! Slovenia is known as a country of lovers of delicious food and almost everywhere you go you can find a wide variety of great places to dine, from fine dining to local spots serving blood sausages, goulash, and other hearty fare.

Slovenia might not immediately spring to mind as a culinary destination but it has a remarkably vibrant food scene. Slovenia’s unique placement in central Europe means Slovenian cuisine has taken the best of its neighbouring countries’ cuisines: Austria, Italy, Croatia and Hungary. From the Austrian cuisine, Slovenia has borrowed sausage, Wiener Schnitzel and strudel. Italian cuisine has gifted the Slovenian one with all kinds of pastas (fettuccine, spaghetti, lasagna, ravioli, tortellini, etc.), gnocchi (pillowy potato dumplings), pizza, and risotto. Among popular Hungarian dishes, which can be tasted in Slovenia, there’s goulash, braised chicken or beef and pancakes (filled with jam or nuts and chocolate is poured over them). Cevapcici (a grilled dish of minced meat, a type of skinless sausage) and burek (a sausage-shaped fried filo pastry filled most commonly with meat or soft white cheese or spinach) relate to the main Balkan dishes.

Places to stay in Slovenia

And don’t forget the fantastic Slovenian wines to accompany your meals, or Slovenia’s legendary pastries, from the delicious cremeschnitte to ‘prekmurska gibanica’ to strudel with a variety of fillings. There are many reasons to visit Slovenia, but perhaps surprisingly for some, food is definitely one of them.
