Hiša Franko

Chef: Ana Roš

Roundly regarded by gourmands, amateur foodies, tourists and locals
alike as one of the best restaurants in the country, and currently
ranked as the 38th best restaurant in the world, 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, who has
been hailed as one of the best female chefs 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 (and the further in advance the better). The jawdroppingly impressive and exceptionally Instagram-friendly tasting
menu features dishes that change with the seasons, or as a stroke of
genius hits Roš. All of the produce used is grown or foraged around
the estate, and behind the main house is a huge garden, complete
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 estate building is a popular
destination in its own right. Over the building’s lifetime, it has been
a village mill, an inn and a hospital during the First World War - the
breathtaking Soča Valley region is steeped in history, and definitely
worth a longer stay. Convenient then that Hiša Franko also offers
package deals, which include an exclusive stay in one of their stylish,
modern rooms with an exquisite breakfast the next day.
