Pavus’s cuisine

At restaurant Pavus, food is sourced as local as possible, used in traditional recipes but prepared in a completely new and innovative way. The seasonal menu is changed every three months and the tasting menu represents the best of what the kitchen has to offer. Chef Marko seeks inspiration in nature, in the forest and on the meadows. With what he finds he surprises his diners with lesser-known ingredients prepared in an unusual way. Goutweed, dock, chickweed and meadow salsify are just a few of the herbs he likes to use in his famous castle meadow soup. While meat specialties, game and the occasional Asian-inspired dish are featured on the menu, vegetarian and vegan options are also available upon request.

Laško surroundings

You will definitely get the most beautiful view of the town at landmark Tabor Laško Castle – the very location of the restaurant itself which dates back to the 11th century. There are many historic sights to be explored in the area, like churches and castles, as well as outdoor activities such as hiking and cycling. Or you can taste the original “Laško beer”, regional wine and delicious refreshments, and treat yourself to a culinary delight.
