Hiša Franko in Kobarid in northwest Slovenia remains one of the world's top 50 restaurants according to the British trade magazine Restaurant. The restaurant run by celebrity chef Ana Roš even improved its standing, ranking 32nd, up from the 34th place last year.

The jury was impressed by the restaurant's philosophy and values, Roš's team said.

The Slovenian Michelin starred chef expressed gratitude as this year's culinary Oscars were declared, saying she was "extremely proud and honoured" that Hiša Franko is again listed among the World's 50 Best Restaurants.

She said this achievement would not have been possible without the passionate and dedicated team of Hiša Franko.

Restaurant magazine notes that Hiša Franko specialises in intricately made fresh pasta and dishes that focus on produce from within a few kilometres.

Roš rose to fame when she was named the World's Best Female Chef by the World's 50 Best Restaurants culinary portal in 2017 and was featured in the Netflix Chef's Table series.

Hiša Franko is the only Slovenian restaurant boasting two Michelin stars.
