Designer style food yet relaxing with great youthful creativity
As the name says (A Gallery of Flavours)
Galerija okusov offers everything simultaneously – a simple restaurant and a fine dining restaurant, a culinary ‘classroom’, a garden exhibition, a designer’s workshop – but the best of all is the gallery of flavours! With their youthful enthusiasm and creativeness, Luka Gmajner and Marko Magajne create a culinary experience for guests which ensures that everyone has a great time. The location offers free reign for fantasy, creativity and ambition – from picnics to weddings, from the outdoor barbecue to the high-tech kitchen, and from the retro ambience of the dining room to two special rooms for large group gatherings. Galerija okusov, which is situated next to the motorway on the halfway point between Ljubljana and Maribor, has a daring concept which is innovative in Slovenia and competitive internationally. In the former stables the young team has created a restaurant that is designer in style yet with a relaxed feel.
The two young chefs at Galerija okusov have potential in terms of the knowledge, support, location, ambition and diligence. The fact that they are still learning is a plus, and they are still discovering too, which gives them an advantage. Galerija okusov is somewhat different, due to its ambience and park, ideas and marketing, youthful ambition and team spirit. At the same time, however, one knows what you are getting – a contemporary culinary experience which is attractive and tasty, aromatic and floral, and made from locally sourced ingredients, all served on plates that are picture-perfect and with a story that has to be tasted.
