Welcome to Mandrija
Our story

At the edge of the Vipava Valley, in the close vicinity of Nova Gorica, amidst intact nature, you will find the Mandrija Estate which is more than 100 years old.

For several years, Gostilnica Mandrija has opened its doors to everybody who loves home-made meals and wine from the Primorska region (the Littoral) of Slovenia. The beginnings of Mandrija's food service activity date back to 1994 when a modest family-owned snack bar was opened at the Mandrija Estate, to grow and to develop its services through years. In time it has thus grown into the Mandrija Small Inn which, in a pleasant home-felt environment, provides you with a wide choice of home-made dishes prepared in a traditional style with a touch of contemporary culinary arts.

We offer fresh dishes, every day we carefully pick simple yet good quality ingredients procured from local food suppliers. At the Mandrija Small Inn, we try to please our customers with our rich culinary offer served in a pleasant ambience, creating an unforgettable experience for various occasions - business and private gatherings, anniversary and wedding parties, romantic evenings for couples. You are kindly invited to have an early or late lunch or a dinner, have a glass of wine with your friends, enjoy a business meal or throw a private party.
