Succulent, juicy capon

Gostilna Šempeter is a restaurant in which one must always stop while in Bistrica ob Sotli; a restaurant which means that when in Posavje, one simply must drive through Bistrica ob Sotli; and a restaurant that one must visit a few times a year, regardless of whether or not you have a reason to go to Bistrica ob Sotli!

Gostilna Šempeter is a real Slovenian restaurant, of which there are not many these days, with traditional Kozanjsko food, which Gostilna Šempeter cooks the best. If it’s not from capon, it’s from Krškopolje pork, whether in brawn, sausages, soup or, of course, Kozjansko krapi dumplings and štruklji. Read the ‘Handbook’ that is Gostilna Šempeter’s menu in the form of an actual newspaper!

If you like meat on the bone you need to visit Gostilna Šempeter in Bistrica, which is located between Kozjansko and Bizeljsko. Here you will find delicious meat, and capon served with mlinci. The capon, a cockerel that grows for 6-8 months and comes from only one of two farms, is large enough to feed 4-6 people. But don’t forget to order it in advance!
