Gostilna Repnik

Slovenian in Kamnik

Long a locals' favourite for top-notch Slovenian cuisine, Gostilna Repnik (1.5km east of the centre) also boasts boutique accommodation (singles/doubles from €55/90) to give you more reason to linger. Great service and fresh, local produce are the hallmarks. There's usually no menu, but a well-priced offering of, say, trout, veal shank and delicious dessert – all showcasing tradition with a twist.

The nine rooms feature stylishly rustic design elements; guests have free use of bikes and excellent insider travel trips from host Peter.
