The creativity of Bine Volčič without any TV cameras
Bine up close in his bistro
Monstera offers bistro-style food that satisfies all the senses, is filling, makes you smile, and is relaxing – from Ljubljana-style breakfast to bistro lunches and seven-course meals. This is ‘bistronomy-a-la-Paris’, yet with ingredients from Ljubljana’s market and the creativity of a chef who learnt his trade at two reputable cookery schools. First the one in Paris – the most well known in the world – where he really learnt to cook. Then the one in Ljubljana’s ‘Hollywood’, which turned him into a TV chef, where he learnt that it is nice to play a part in reality (TV shows), but it is even nicer to really cook. This is Monstera!
Despite belonging to Bine Volčič, Monstera is a real restaurant, without TV cameras and celebrities, yet with live cooking – which is not overly fussy – and a well-known chef. There are no rules, prestige and expensive ingredients, nevertheless through creativity, genuineness, and sincerity – without the need for expensive decor, long tablecloths and extensive menus – Monstera is a restaurant with a happy chef and satisfied guests.
