Have you ever eaten on grass? At Garden restaurant you'll find a meadow right on your table! This unique restaurant is part of the amazing resort Garden Village in Bled. Their cuisine is based on traditional ingredients and products from their own garden, prepared in a fresh and modern way. The place to go to if you want to impress your wife, father-in-law or your business partner!
The restaurant, like the whole Garden Village Resort, is simply remarkable. It is located in a beautiful greenhouse made of wood and glass. There's a small stream running through the restaurant and real grass and herbs growing on the tables and wooden planters. The cook often picks the herbs up right in front of your eyes! Self-sufficiency is really important in the resort and among the team there's even a Doctor of Philosophy in Agronomy, who takes cares of the plants and the vegetable garden and makes sure the organic ingredients come straight to the kitchen.
The menu might be short, but it is strictly Slovenian. You won't find the typical Slovenian stews but slightly more modern dishes based on traditional ingredients. A few examples: smoked Bohinj trout pâté, roast beef steak with buckwheat dumplings, millet porridge and cottage cheese, Piran sea bass 'the Garden way'. I recommend taking the tasting menu chosen by the main chef, where 3-5 courses will please your palate with the best daily offer.
The ambient at Garden restaurant is superb. You can also enjoy your food on the wooden terrace beside the beautiful swimming pond and there's even a shaded corner where the fire gets lit up in the evenings. A great place for informal business gatherings.
Part of the resort is also a small shop of domestic goodies which offers a variety of organic products from all around Slovenia. If you don't have time to go to Tolmin to buy some famous cheese, visit the Karst for some prosciutto or Prekmurje to get some pumpkin oil, just stop by at Garden Village!
