The best restaurant in Bled is at Vila Bled . For something more down-home, Glostina pri Planincu, Grajska 8 (tel. 04/574-1613) is so popular you'll have your menu whisked away before you've had a chance to make sense of the Slovenian listings. For a more relaxed atmosphere, head to nearby Glostina Murka, Riklijeva 9 (tel. 04/574-3340; www.gostilna-murka.com). Operating since 1909, it offers authentic Slovene cuisine, including barley soup made with dried meat, and traditional pork sausages; veal steak is served with boletus mushrooms; the venison in a juniper berry sauce.

Purely for the lovely setting, it's worth stopping by for a light meal at Vila Preseren, Veslaska promenade 14 (tel. 04/575-2510), where you can spend hours savoring the moment over a glass of wine on the wooden deck right at the edge of Lake Bled. Their gateaux isn't half bad, either.
