Place to be: Vander Urban Resort

As in a lot of other cities, we have restaurant week once or twice a year and it is happening now (18-16.10). I think it’s a great opportunity to try new food that you know will be of high standard, but pay less money for it. The three course meal costs 14€ and the restaurants that you can choose from are all selected on the basis of quality criteria (at least 4 from 6 stars). You have to reserve your seat, which are quickly filled.
This time we went to restaurant of Vander Urban Resort, that’s a four star hotel in the old city center of Ljubljana. I’ve heard a lot of praise about their Chef whose name is Benjamin Launay. He’s French and cooks Slovenian food with a french twist.

Let me tell you, food was excellent! Everything was so tasty, melt in your mouth with very interesting flavors. I loved it! I think if you are visiting Ljubljana, it must be a great place to stay at (look at photos on their website, they even have a cafe and a pool on the roof where you can enjoy the view), but also if you just want a good meal it really is worth checking out.
Here are some photos to make you hungry:
