Four generations of the Rajh family
" Tanja and Damir have incorporated modern culinary trends and adapted them to the homely and traditional Rajh cuisine "

The fourth generation of the Rajh family endeavours to make guests feel as satisfied as they were when their grandfather and grandmother used to cater for them in the old Rajh Village Inn. Some things have changed, but the new Rajh Restaurant remains just as welcoming as it was in the old times. The long family tradition is becoming richer, for it is the young who refresh the old and it is the young who listen to the experienced. Four generations of the Rajh family have been wishing guests “Bon appétit!” every time they have served a delicious meal.

Ignac and Karolina were the first innkeepers of the Rajh Village Inn that served cider to their guests and also included the village store. Then grandfather Geza and grandmother Marija began to serve their guests fried chicken, fish from the Slavonia region, hearty minestrone and Prekmurje flat breads. In those times, a sandwich made with homemade salami was a specialty of the Rajh Village Inn.

In 1969, when the inn was moved to the location of the present restaurant, father Ignac and mother Marta expanded their menu in order to attract guests from near and far, i.e. from Austria and all of the countries of the former Yugoslavia. International cuisine was popular back then, so the Rajh Village Inn served all kinds of steaks and fish from the sea. Despite the foreign culinary influences, the inn continued to serve typical dishes from the local Prekmurje region.

The fourth generation of the Rajh family took over the management of the restaurant in 2005. Tanja Pintaric, who is an Officier Maître Restaurateur in the Chaîne, and Damir decided to preserve tradition by giving a modern twist to it. Although they have preserved the traditional dishes from the Prekmurje region, slightly reformulated give them a lighter, deliciously fresh taste.

Tanja and Damir have incorporated modern culinary trends and adapted them to the homely and traditional Rajh cuisine. The restaurant has been renovated, but the recipes of grandmother and mother have remained. The old guests still love to play cards, but the new gourmet guests – including the Bailliage of Slovenia - come and return to enjoy the superb dishes awarded five “Suns” (the “Sun” being the sign of excellence awarded by the Slovenian newspaper Nedelo).

Authentic cuisine, welcoming, relaxed, and homely atmosphere are the hallmarks of Gostilna Rajh. The Rajh Family is proud that their restaurant has such a rich history and are looking forward to creating its future with their guests.
