When you are in Bohinj or Bled and you want some delicious home-made food, you must definitely stop in a small alpine village Gorjuše! On a secluded plateau surrounded by the Pokljuka forest you will enjoy the culinary specialties of Jaka Kusterle, a renowned chef from Bohinj. You won't find a menu here, mind you! Everything is fresh and prepared on demand, but you do need to book in advance. Expect a delightful ambiance and tasty Slovenian dishes!
Homestead Ročnjek is situated in a remote village called Spodnje Gorjuše at the edge of the Pokljuka plateau in the Triglav National Park. In summer you can catch a bit of sun and breathe some fresh air on the beautiful terrace and in colder months you can snuggle up near the fireplace in the cosy dining room.
The food is based on fresh and seasonal ingredients. Don't expect 'modern cuisine' with big plates and small portions, but get ready for divine veal roast, venison specialties, smoked trout, fried chicken, delicious stews, generous servings of cold cuts and sweet surprises.
The food is served on large wooden boards, the bread is freshly baked and the ingredients come from trustworthy suppliers from the surrounding area.
Set a date with Jaka and tell him your wishes regarding the menu. This is the right place to come if you want to impress somebody with pristine Slovenian dishes in a wonderful atmosphere. A great choice for different celebrations and business meetings too!
Of course you should combine the visit with a trip in the surrounding area! Do a short walk to the wonderful Vodnik viewpoint, wander around the beautiful Pokljuka plateau or simply move away from the 'hustle and bustle' of Lake Bohinj or Bled? Come to Ročnjek!
And you don't have to drive all the way home right away, you can spend the night at the lovely Ročnjek Apartments instead! :)
