Gujzina

Slovenian food may have a stodgy reputation, but the contemporary Guijzina has a date-night vibe with a refined, fairly priced menu to match. The cuisine is traditional Slovenian, including smoked sausage, meat bograc, buckwheat porridge and baked dodoles, but there are plenty of salads to choose from too, and the wine list is fantastic. Vegetarians will enjoy the delicious home-made potato gnocchi with pumpkin seed pesto. Mains from €7.

TaBar

Whoever said that tapas could only be enjoyed in Spain? This gem of a feasting spot is hidden down a little street in the historic city centre but once inside, the atmosphere is lively and the food sumptuous with flair. Sit in front of the open kitchen and watch the chefs work their magic with fresh local ingredients right before your eyes. Try the garlic chilli shrimp, chickpeas with kale and chorizo in red wine with white beans. Five-course menu for €26.

Kavarna Zvezda

This characterful café is where all the locals hang out, so you can rest assured that its mouthwatering sweet treats are among Ljubljana’s finest. Found between the Zvezda Park and the Triple Bridge, Zvezda is the ideal pitstop for a sugary refuel. The chocolate crostata with macarons and ganache cream is outrageously indulgent and the cream and custard slice a Slovenian delicacy.
