Central Hotel's Restaurant and Franky's Bar

Central Hotel has been closed since early November 2018 and will reopen in the spring of 2019 after a complete renovation. During this time, lunch can be enjoyed at Restaurant Union on the ground floor of Grand Hotel Union Business at Miklošičeva Street 3 in Ljubljana.


In the centre of Ljubljana, you are kindly invited to Central Hotel's very own restaurant, which tells an extraordinary culinary story involving a famous musician known to just about anyone – Frank Sinatra. At Franky's Bar, you can try Sinatra's favourite cake and biscuits, while in the restaurant, the delicious lunch menus are all about his favourite flavours and ingredients as well.  

 The person behind the whole culinary story is a master chef extraordinaire, Slavica Smrdel, who is in charge of Central Hotel's kitchen. Her aim is to presents the guests with a unique culinary story based on simplicity and tradition handed down by older generations. Contrary to many popular contemporary chefs, Slavica swears by tradition with seasonal and local basics and flavours that are not mixed more than necessary, but are in step with modern cuisine. She is a master chef known for her perfectionism and love of exploring, selecting and considering each factor that affects the final product created by her. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that even the weather forecast and the anticipated people's mood play a role in what makes it into her weekly menus.

You are kindly invited to Central Hotel's restaurant, where you will have a perfect opportunity to get to know a one-of-a-kind culinary story, and see for yourself how delicious the food prepared by our master chef is.

A fine selection of sweet treats and snacks is available at Franky's Bar, located on the ground floor of the hotel. During the warm part of the year, Franky's Bar features a pleasant garden section.
