The main characteristic of the “Gasthaus von Thomas Gruber« at the lake Wörthersee is the regional cuisine, where different cultures and genuine dishes/origins from Slovenia, Italy and Carinthia meets. Eating and drinking together becomes the indispensable experience factor. Thomas Gruber is not following the culinary mainstream, so instead of great gourmet menus, you will find dishes with heart and mind. He gained knowledge and experience for many years in the most prestigious restaurants and hotels in the States, France, Italy and Austria. In 2013, he opened his own restaurant “Gasthaus von Thomas Gruber”.


Igor Jagodic is the chef of Strelec Restaurant at Ljubljana Castle, pampering foreign and local guests with the typical Ljubljana dishes made in a modern way. His cuisine is based on the modern French cuisine combined with the local ingredients, colours, etc. … Curiosity lead him abroad, from France to Germany and further to Copenhagen, where he got experiences in the Noma restaurant. He prides himself with the awards from international competitions, where he was a part of Slovenian Chefs Team.
