The meaning of stars
1 star means it is a very good restaurant in its category. 2 stars mean a great restaurant while 3 stars they mean the best we can imagine in cooking.
This year, Michelin stars also came to Slovenia.
Kar 2 Michelin the star she received House Franko from Kobarid, run by a master chef Yes, Roche. And so this restaurant is one of only 473 restaurants around the world with two Michelin stars and the only one in Slovenia.
I think two stars are quite fair at the moment, but at the same time they give room for evolution, for development, for you to become even better. Give us time, give us a chance, we still have room and we will be even better and more diligent and more committed and maybe one day a third will come.
