JB Restaurant

JB Restaurant’s story begins with the Bratovž family and is built on family love and cooperation. Serving traditional Slovenian dishes, the restaurant’s beginnings can be traced back to 1992 when Janez Bratovž, having gained invaluable experience abroad, returned home to Slovenia after five years with a dream of setting up his own restaurant. Since then JB Restaurant has gone from strength to strength and was the first Slovenian restaurant to make the World’s 50 Best Restaurants.

JB’s Cuisine

The inspiration for JB Restaurant’s intricate dishes derives from daily visits to the market and beautiful friendships born between the Bratovž family and local suppliers. For twenty years, Janez Bratovž went to Ljubljana’s Central Market to find the best ingredients for his menu, a tradition that his son has continued now that he is at the helm in the kitchen. Each plate put together with great dedication and attention to detail, focuses on seasonal ingredients, bringing them to life with a variety of classical techniques and modern approaches.


Located in one of Slovenian architect Jože Plečniks' architectural masterpieces, the JB Restaurants' art-filled interior offers a unique setting with a metropolitan vibe. Guests can escape the hustle and bustle of the city and unwind in the tranquil interior with clean lines and carefully curated design. The skilled and helpful staff ensure that every visit is a pleasant one that will make guests want to return again and again.
