Eating Out


There are two restaurants in the village.  Betel is open every day, while Pri Fencu is generally only open on weekends. You’ll find them both by following the road up the valley and turning left over a small bridge.

10 minutes drive down the hill in Jesenice there are a host of restaurants to choose from. Fontana, our favourite pizza place, has huge pizzas at half the price of those in Bled! Turn right at the bottom of the hill in Jesenice and it's on the right near the pedestrian lights.

About 15 minutes down the road to Kranjska Gora is Villa Rosa which serves good food and is pleasant, if not a bit close to the road.

Kranjska Gora has plenty of nice restaurants to choose from including the rustic Gostilna pri Martinu and Restaurant Pizzeria Kotnik, both of which you'll find by heading NE from the main square and church, past the fire station and on the right.

In Bled you could try any of a host of places including Restaurant Rikli, Gostilna Pri Planincu, Peglezn, Vila Preseren, Gostilna Union; or for a good cuppa, the tea café next to the tourist office. Of course, you have to try the famous Bled Cream Cakes, pictured below!

In Ljubljana, Restaurnat Julija does reasonably priced menus or try this website for a fuller list.

In Srednja, Vas near Bohinj, Pri Francki have excellent meals in a nice setting next to the river and underneath the imposing village church. Combine a trip to the Lake with lunch or park at Stara Fužina, hike over Rudnica and return via the restaurant (see walks page)


Bled Cream Cake - dig in!


Food Shopping


The biggest supermarket in Jesenice is the Mercator Hypermarket, about 15 minutes from the chalet.  Drive down the hill into Jesenice, turn right and continue for about 300m, then turn left at the traffic lights, down a small hill and round the corner to two supermarkets. 

       Opening hours are:

          Mon - Fri: 8am - 8pm

          Sunday: 8am - 1pm


If you arrive at Ljubljana airport late in the evening, there is a Mercator supermarket near Kranj.  Turn left out of the airport, over two or three sets of lights and you'll see the Mercator centre in front of you.  Return the same way to reach the expressway to Jesenice.

       Opening hours are:

          Mon - Fri: 8am - 9pm

          Sunday: 8am - 1pm
