Karst-style cuisine with a personal approach
The best known restaurant in the capital
Gostilna As is like a ladies handbag. Over the road there are as many as you could possibly want, but those are cheap, Gostilna As, however, is priceless! Even though this restaurant has never had a famous chef, it is a restaurant with famous guests, the most famous of which is its boss. The ‘Pope’ – as they call him – and Gostilna As are an institution!
Gostilna As has built its popularity on communication. From the owner, who is always there (in the evenings) and who everyone knows; the waiting team, who always greet every guest using the right name; the daily specials, which are always fresh and from the sea; to the wines, which always have new ‘stories’ to tell.
The ‘Pope’s’ dishes are legendary. Gostilna As’s prosciutto is the best, because the owner carves it himself; the fish is the best, because it is the best that money can buy; the meat is the best, because ‘the Pope’ has already matured it when others would have only just frozen it; and the cakes are the best, because they have been making them for 30 years! And Gostilna As has the best guests too, because they don’t ask, they just pay!
Gostilna As isn’t about seeking, discovering and creativity, therefore don’t expect to be surprised; you will, however, be happy and content! And Gostilna As isn’t somewhere to go because of the unknown, but rather because of the known; somewhere to be because of the confirmation that you, too, are here!
