If you like restaurants with amazing views, Park Restaurant and Cafe is definitely for you. Located by Lake Bled, it has a beautiful spacious terrace, so you can admire Bled Castle, Lake Bled and the surrounding Alps as you tuck into a slice of cake. I’m sure you’ll agree that there’s always time for cake…
If you’re after something more substantial you can enjoy a traditional Slovenian meal. Everything is homemade, too. I opted for a lovely Caesar salad with seared slices of chicken and bacon. Ok, I’ll admit that Caesar salad is rarely seen as an exciting dish but let me tell you, it was absolutely delicious!
I tried a yummy Esperienza Cremes cocktail, which was made from coffee, Havana rum, Kahlua coffee liqueur and cream. I actually hate coffee with a passion and despise the smell and taste but I was pleasantly surprised by this cocktail. It was creamy and light, with only a subtle hint of coffee.
The staff were friendly and polite. Park Restaurant and Cafe is very popular with locals as well as tourists. Indeed, lots of people visit Bled just to enjoy the famous cream cake at the restaurant, where it was first made.
I’ve had the traditional Bled cream cake before and I fancied a change so I tried a delicious fruit cake. Wow, I’m no stranger to cakes but this one was soft and very fruity! Totally scrumptious!
I throughly enjoyed my visit to Park Restaurant and Cafe and I look forward to going back soon!
