We cannot accommodate vegans or vegetarians (without fish/shellfish).

As our chef Ana Roš explains it: “We are a countryside restaurant which is taking from local environment, trying our best to convey that to our guests. And traditionally, here, we eat meat (all part of the animal), fish, a lot of dairy products, eggs and vegetables. All products are locally sourced. Whenever you give us your list of dietary restrictions, you make our work more difficult and you limit your dining pleasures. So, even though we will offer you the long menu, we cannot guarantee the same firework of tastes as we do in the regular menu.”
