Modern cuisine still relies on local ingredients, to which chefs add modern touch and thus create unforgettable dishes, which will please even the most demanding gourmets.
Feel pampered with top gastronomy and masterpieces by Ana Roš, one of the world’s best female chefs, in Soča Valley.
Michelin came to Slovenia in 2020, and presented the results of its assessment on 16 June 2020 with the publication of the first Michelin guide for Slovenia. With Ana Roš and Hiša Franko, the Soča Valley also got its place in it. House Franko near Kobarid was the only Slovenian restaurant to receive two Michelin stars.
Ana Roš creates her dishes in Hiša Franko (House Franko), which has many years of family tradition, but has reached the highest culinary level with its last generation. A table at Hiša Franko is one of the most wanted on the foodies’ wish list in Slovenia.
In addition to excellent food, you will be able to explore the wine cellar of the house with Ana’s husband Valter. The cellar also has a rich collection of cheese. Those who will not be able to make a reservation at Hiša Franko during their quick visit to the valley, can try local specialties by Valter in Kobarid’s pub Polonka.
