Grad Štanjel Restaurant

A wedding with Karst prosciutto in a renovated castle by Komel family

Chef: Simo Komel

Simo Komel

Če je tipičen kraški pršut dve leti na burji, je Komelov vsaj tri. Tako, resno in dodelano, se loteva tudi svojih jedi, s katerimi je jota-gostilno spremenil v kraško stalnico, ki lokalni kulinariki dodaja urbani pečat.

A restaurant that is rejuvenating a town

Stanjel is a great place to get married…however, there’s really no need to have to get married (again) in order to come here. Why? Well, because the town is now really coming to life, the castle is being renovated, the restaurant is so ambitious, the family is so hard working, the courtyard is so sandy, the wines, prosciutto, salamis, cheese and – in fact – all the ingredients are so Karst, the table linen is so refined, the dishes are so simple yet elegant, there are always weddings, concerts, trips, tours and views. But that’s not all. You can also learn how to distinguish prosciutto based on its year, the tasting sessions are mixed with juniper, brides experience the best day of their lives here, while walkers tuck into the best risotto of their trip to the Karst, and visitors to Stanjel can experience a long night in the rejuvenated town.

Visit 2020



The Komel family’s decision to move here wasn’t an easy one, since everything was already here where the Karst bora winds caress the prosciutto. The family cook and serve, they dry prosciutto, invest in olives, advise on Karst wines and organise weddings. But now there is also the castle, on which Štanjel is being revived. Therefore, your decision will not be easy. There’s so much to see and taste that you won’t be able to do everything at once. You’ll just have to come again!
