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, and local ingredients.


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.



There are several acclaimed restaurants in the town of Radovljica and its surroundings, the most prominent among which is Vila Podvin with its head chef Uroš Štefelin. Uroš has received numerous awards for his cuisine, which he bases on traditional Gorenjska cuisine, the most prestigious of which was the Michelin Star received in 2020, one of the first to receive a Michelin Star in Slovenia.



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.


Radol'ca, the home of good restaurants.

Adele's choise of top winter hikes around Radovljica

Written by Adele Gray, january 2018


Though, in truth, I will never be a lover of winter and snow, since moving to Slovenia in 2007 I have learnt that in winter in the area where I live – Radovljica, in the northwest i.e. the alpine area - snow is a fact of life and, to some extent, have learnt to embrace it!
