Restavracija Mak

Restaurant Mak

Maribor, the second-largest city in Slovenia, is home to Restaurant Mak. Chef David Vračko started the restaurant in 2011 when he returned to his native country after traveling and working abroad for ten years. Restaurant Mak has received numerous awards and world-wide recognition. Part of this is because of the chef’s personal approach, through which he reads the wishes of the guests in their eyes. Mak Restaurant's specialty is that time slows down here, so there is no need to rush, but instead enjoy the culinary delights.

Chef David Vračko is a rather unusual chef. His appearance would give you the idea he is a rock musician instead of a culinary artist. However, he does create culinary art with his hands that is not only appealing to the eye, but also extremely good in taste. This is why Gault Millau Slovenia named David Vracko “Chef of the Future”.
