Michelin Guide highlighted the best Slovenian restaurants for the fifth time in a row, reaffirming the top quality, sustainability and diversity of Slovenian gastronomy. Hiša Franko, under the guidance of chef Ana Roš, continues to shine brightly with three Michelin stars. What sets Hiša Franko apart even further is its Green Star, emphasizing its commitment to sustainability. This dual recognition places Hiša Franko among a select group of just 33 restaurants worldwide honoured with both distinctions. Ana Roš also stands as one of only eight female chefs globally to hold three Michelin stars and one of two chefs worldwide to combine three Michelin stars with the Green Star.

Among the other standout restaurants, Milka under chef David Žefran maintains its impressive two Michelin stars. The guide also highlights eight restaurants awarded one Michelin star, including the newcomer Pavus Restaurant, led by Chef Mark Pavčnik. Additionally, eight restaurants have earned a prestigious Michelin Green Star, with Galerija Okusov and Chef Marko Magajne as the newest recipient.
