Grajska Gostilnica (or Little Castle Inn) is a cosy and warm place in the centre of Radovljica. You can choose from different meat, fish, pasta and vegetarian dishes that include local ingredients.
They also serve pizza that is baked in a traditional stove oven.
Chef Borut recommends red trout fillet with gnocchi au gratin or crispy chicken fillet with “čopme” (potatoes).
The restaurant has also a wine cellar where you can have a degustation meal and taste wine.
OUR ORDER: We started our meal with a warm starter (creamy mushroom soup and asparagus soup).
Our mains consisted of barley risotto with asparagus and horseradish (includes milk) and roasted potatoes with rosemary and vegetables.
OUR EXPERIENCE: The soups that came in cute pots were very tasty and big in portions (after finishing my mushroom soup I was almost full). The menu said that the soup was made of porcini, kind of mushrooms that grow in the forest surrounding Radovljica.
The mains were likewise delicious, however the potatoes with rosemary and vegetables were a bit too salty for my taste (it might be good to ask the waiter how satly the potatoes are when ordering).
CONCLUSION: This restaurant with a rustic charm serves food of good quality that is also nicely presented. The staff was very kind and helpful (the waitress told me which dishes included milk and which not as I am trying to continue with my plant-based diet).
We left the restaurant – that is named after the hotel in which is situated – satisfied and will definitely come back again!
