Slovenian gastronomic excellence

In light of The MICHELIN Guide coming to Slovenia for the first time, we wanted to reminisce of our talks with some of the best Slovenian chefs.

The “green heart of Europe”, Slovenia is the latest addition to the list of destinations that attracted the MICHELIN Guide inspectors. 52 restaurants, including one two-starred and five one-starred restaurants, have been included in the new 2020 selection, reflecting the attractiveness of the Slovenian culinary scene.

Ana Roš’s cuisine was awarded two Stars in her restaurant Hiša Franko in Kobarid in north-western Slovenia, a restaurant surrounded by an exceptional natural environment.


Jorg Zupan from Atelje 

In Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital, Atelje was awarded its first Star. As dynamic and lively as the city, Chef Jorg Zupan makes the most of his years spent in kitchens all over the world.

Northern Slovenia is home to two new Michelin-star restaurants. In his restaurant Hiša Denk in Zgornja Kungota, chef Gregor Vračko is the perfect ambassador for excellence in Slovenian cuisine.
