What I need to know before my visit?

About the restaurant
There are 2 dining areas in Hiša Franko that can accommodate up to 45 people with tables for 2 to maximum 6 people. Please be informed we have a special room for bigger tables (8-10 people) where you will be able to enjoy our meal in the comfort of a private area. We will arrange the room only for your party. In case your reservation is for a group bigger then 10 people, we can split the group in 2 different tables (upon availability)

Smoking is not allowed in the dining area.

Your reservation concerns occupation and not location. Your table may be located either in one or the other dining area. If you have any special wishes regarding the location of your table, please let us know.

Children are welcome too. If your child needs a baby chair, please inform us about it when making the reservation so we can prepare the table accordingly. We kindly ask you to take care your child does not disturb other guests. There is no special children’s menu, but you can choose some dishes from the regular degustation menu or the kitchen can prepare some pasta with tomato sauce and local cheese.

Our dress code is smart casual.

Dogs are allowed in the restaurant, as long as the owners keep them quite and close to them. We provide water bowls for dogs too. Please be informed there are cats and our own dog around the house as well.

There is a big parking space in front of the house where you can park your car free of charge.

We take all types of credit cards.

We do not issue gift vouchers.

You are kindly asked to come for dinner at agreed time. In case you are late for half an hour or more, we will be obliged to shorten your menu, charging the same price.

If you have any allergies or food restrictions, please advise us at least 1 week before your arrival. If we are not informed about your restrictions in time, we may not be able to adjust your menu.

We can only adjust the menu for the following allergies and restrictions. Please see below the philosophy of Hiša Franko and our chef Ana Roš:

»We are a countryside restaurant which is taking from local environment, trying to do our best to make it understand and appreciate by our clients. In local traditions we do eat and we do combine meat, fish, a lot of diary products, eggs and vegetables. All products are locally sourced, some  even home produced. Whenever you give us your list of dietary restrictions you make our work more difficult and especially you limit your pleasure of the table.

We may cook for pesceterians (no meat), for people who would like their menu without fish, but enjoy meat, gluten free, lactose free, no nuts, no shellfish, pregnant women. We can guarantee the long menu but we cannot guarantee the same firework of tastes as we do in the regular menu. We can in some cases remove meat/fish without necessarily substitute it with something else if we consider that the dish can work without the specific element. We cannot accommodate vegans or vegeterians (without fish).

In the case of dislike/different allergy, diet then above mentioned we will do everything to change the dish with another dish from the second menu if possible/available  but we cannot cook a totally different food because of your dietary restrictions.«

(Ana Roš, chef of Hiša Franko)

In case you are celebrating a special occasion, please let us know, our kitchen can prepare a cake on demand. Please inform us at least 1 week before arrival.
