Hiša Franko

Roundly regarded by gourmands, amateur foodies, tourists and locals alike as one of best restaurants in the country, it’s not uncommon for diners to make the trip to Slovenia for the express purpose of eating here.

 

Run by a husband and wife team, Ana Roš, hailed as the best female chef in the world, is in charge of the kitchen, while Valter Kramar’s knowledge of Slovenian wines and cheeses is unrivalled.

Set in a rustic villa outside the town of Kobarid in the far west of the country, a meal here is in high demand, with reservations being mandatory. With dishes that change with the seasons, or as a stroke of genius hits Roš, all of the produce used is foraged around Hiša Franko. Behind Hiša Franko is a huge garden, with a babbling creek running beside it. With a history that’s nearly as rich as the dishes Roš prepares, it’s not difficult to see why the Hiša Franko building is a popular destination in its own right. Over the building’s lifetime, it has been a village mill, an inn, part of a big estate and a hospital during the First World War.

Hiša Franko offers package deals, which include an exclusive stay in one of their stylish, modern rooms, massages and exquisite breakfasts the next day. Hiša Franko can also be hired out for catering events, with some of their past catering jobs being for weddings on desolate islands, parties deep in the forest, galas, or more intimate events, just for friends and family. Roš tailors each menu and dish to the desires of her clients.
