Cuisine in Radovljica and its surroundings

 

When we talk about Radol'ca's cuisine, one tends to first think of popular, old restaurants with a long tradition followed immediately by contemporary culinary approaches, top-notch culinary events, local ingredients and unique guided culinary experiences.

 

When you are travelling throughout the Radol'ca area, or indeed anywhere in the Gorenjska region, we thoroughly recommend dining at one of our popular restaurants or inns, where the excellent cuisine is accompanied by wonderful views and a homely atmosphere.

 

TREAT YOURSELF TO INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED GOURMET CUISINE

There are several acclaimed restaurants in Radovljica and its surroundings, among which first place is held by Hiša Linhart, which, together with head chef Uroš Štefelin, is the holder of a Michelin Star in 2022 and 2023. Uroš Štefelin, who built his culinary success on the basis of traditional Gorenjska cuisine, also received a Michelin Green Star for sustainability. A nearby restaurant Vila Podvin is a proud owner of Michelin plate in 2023.

 

CHOOSE THE SIMPLICITY OF FLAVOURS

In addition to gourmet restaurants, you will also be well received at Radol'ca's authentic village inns, good pizzerias, well-kept hotel restaurants and other smaller culinary outlets. With the wide variety of cuisine and with something to suit every budget, there is good reason to stop off in Radovljica during your trip around the Julian Alps.

 

PLAN YOUR VISIT TO RADOVLJICA IN AUTUMN

Autumn is the time when local producers harvest the last produce from fields and allotments, and also the time when talented Taste Radol'ca chefs use these products to create exceptional local menus. Culinary autumn in Radol'ca features events at farms, a culinary experience and local menus featuring traceable ingredients.

 

Radol'ca, the home of good restaurants.
