Concierge.com's insider take:
Don't worry when the taxi pulls up to a bland strip mall outside the center of town: Despite the blah location, this is a slick lounge and restaurant with undulating wood walls and tables separated by shimmering screens. The kitchen sends out excellent tagliatelle with house-made truffle sauce, scampi in buzara (a sauce of tomatoes, white wine, and garlic), and baked John Dory fillets. Since it's so far from the tourist center it's rare to see any non-Slovenians, but the relaxed atmosphere and young crowd will make you feel right at home.
Open Mondays through Fridays 11 am to 11 pm, Saturdays 12 pm to 11 pm.
