How to do Hiša Franko justice in a short paragraph? This is the house where Hemingway wrote A Farewell to Arms. It’s rated among the 50 Best restaurants in the world. The world’s best female chef Ana Roš prepares unmistakably masterful dishes from all-local flora and fauna. Let’s just say this: in a small country with an abundance of world-class restaurants, this is the only one where you need to reserve your spot over a year in advance.

Hiša Franko dues its existence to traditions and local environment of the Situated in the foothills of the breathtakingly beautiful Soča Valley, Hiša Franko embodies the characteristics of its natural surroundings: rugged, remote, yet unfathomably spectacular. And their cuisine is unbelievable!

The local diet in this area has always consisted of dairy- and meat-based products, so expect a lot of cheese in all its forms and by-products. The restaurant works closely with the local community of foragers, shepherds, cheesemakers, hunters and fishermen. The region is teeming with trout, deer, goats, fruits and wild plants – all are incorporated into their fabulous dishes.

In June 2020, with the first edition of Slovenian Michelin guide was released, Hiša Franko received two Michelin stars. Imagine that? Or rather don’t – just visit and taste for yourself!
