Pod lipo Restaurant Ljubljana, student food Ljubljana
The restaurant Pod lipo – under the Linden tree, located in the centre of Ljubljana, is a widely known Slovene restaurant. Just the year 1820, which is carved above the entrance gate, is a reminder of the many satisfied guests that walked through these doors.
It’s beginnings span back to the 19th century and if the house could talk it would have many interesting stories to share. For example, that there used to be a butcher’s shop in the house or that it was often visited by coachmen or furmans as they were called, because this is where the official food scale used to be, or that in the 60’s an automobile fair was held in front of the restaurant. We might even have learned who planted the linden tree back in 1626, which gave the restaurant its name and why. For decades merry group of peoples would meet under the tree, townspeople as well as country folk. The main Roman road passed through this area in Roman times.
The restaurant Pod lipo is therefore one of those places that can boast with a truly interesting and rich culinary as well as social and cultural tradition. Because of its tradition and the offer of delicious local Slovene dishes it used to be a popular gathering spot for artists and bohemians, later mostly students, since it was one of the first restaurants to also offer pizzas.
The team of the restaurant POD LIPO wishes you bon appetite and a pleasurable stay.
