A pivnica is the Slovene equivalent of a pub, and this place gives the thirsty drinkers of Ljubljana a rest from Union or Lasko, which you get everywhere else. You see, Kratchwill is not just bar - it has its own microbrewery where they make their own beer.This tipple is not bad, but I can only drink one or two. However, I'm a girl, so that's no surprise. Actually, male friends agree that Kratochwill is pretty strong. You can ONLY buy their own brew, but you can get soft drinks and spirits.
Their pizzas are pretty good, although it's best to ask for one without garlic. Although I love garlic, they have tendency to spoon on a raw garlic/parsley mixture that remains uncooked. The salads are also good and the food generally is a good value. There are only a few tables, so the place can get busy, and booking isn't an option unfortunately. Luckily, for those able to get there, there is another branch at the BTC just out of town. A large beer will set you back around 450 Tolars.
