Delicious Grilled Trout Unedible Pasta @ Gostisce Vancar on 18Sep2018 3pax Family Holiday 15-21Sep2018

bovec town

the apartment proprietor told us 3 dining places along a street at bovec town centre, and also the restaurant vancar opposite our apartment wallace.

we went out 7pm + first to try the eating places at bovec town..nothing there.

martinov HR @ bovec town

walked past martinov HR @ bovec town, which looked more like a place which served proper dinner. it was full & the servers were pretty rude. i guess they were full and didn’t need to entertain anyone.

the we drove about 7mins to boka wine & snack bar at hotel boka but it was closed. it was like a guest house & maybe not much business so they didn’t serve dinner.

gostisce vancar – delicious grilled trout

we got back to our apartment, to the restaurant opposite gostisce (guesthouse) vancar..

surprisingly there was a large alfresco dining area and a good dining crowd.

the trout dish 2 trout €15 was good. later i saw it had good reviews and other diners had written about the grilled trout.

the trout was fresh & sweet and very much better than pod skalco at bohinj, and there were 2 fish for €15.

gostisce vancar  – viennese schnitzel breaded veal cutlet

we didn’t know what else to order so tried the viennese schnitzel.

we generally less enthused with breaded stuff. this was quite ok though. 🙂

gostisce vancar  – seafood pasta???? not edible

the so called seafood pasta??? though was quite unedible!!

this was the singular only pasta we came across in slovenia & later amalfi coast that was not al dente! a really really bad pasta & the seafood sauce was like a canned sauce – like bolognese style with hardly seafood.

no other word to describe than unedible!

bill €40.80

gostisce vancar – delicious grilled trout

the bill bill €40.80 was the usual in slovenia palces we went to.

at least the trout was very good, and the viennese schnitzel was good.

amazing lepena

as we were reaching bovec, there was what looked like a picnic area along the banks of river soca, so we turned our car in to explore.

our last drive stop before checking into apartment wallas at bovec was the beautiful lepena.

as it turned out, this was a MUST visit places in the soca valley.
