Restaurant Week, or Teden Restavracij in Slovene, is the largest nationwide culinary event. It is held twice a year in Slovenia, once in spring and once in autumn. This event lasted from the 9th to the 16th of October. Originally it was scheduled to last till the 18th of October. Unfortunately, it was cut short because of the situation with coronavirus which rapidly worsened. There were 106 restaurants participating in total from all across the country. All of these restaurants in the restaurant week event are rated as one the best ones in Slovenia. You can also find some of the best chefs as well.
A special set of one or more menus are created just for this event. For this event, the menus were available for just 19 euros, no matter what ingredients did the chef use. Some higher rated ones had these menus for 25 euros. That is still very affordable. All places require a reservation and the most popular places get fully booked quite fast.
