Mencinger inn

Mencinger inn caught our attention during a cycling trip around the hills of Radgonsko-Kapelske Gorice. This nicely renovated house from the Austro-Hungarian period drew us from the main road and we were really impressed by the autumn dishes prepared by chef Matej. Delightful ambiance, authentic local food, big portions and a reasonable price. Recommended!

Type: inn
Price range:
Offer: homemade local food
Opening time: jan-dec
Mencinger inn is located near Gornja Radgona in Črešnjevci village. Right where the wine hills of Radgonske Gorice turn into Pomurje plains. 30 seats are available in the peaceful embrace of the lovely outside terrace, whereas the inside dining rooms can take 80 people. The antique interior includes restored furniture from the time of our grandmothers, who also set the 'keystone' of the menu in Mencinger inn. Of course Matej, the current chef, added his own 'modern' stamp to those traditional dishes.

The menu consists of authentic seasonal local food: various soups and stews (classic soups, Štajerska sour soup with buckwheat 'žganci', goulash...), pumpkin and mushroom dishes, sauerkraut with pork sausage, 'bujta repa', Prleški steak in a sauce, cabbage with beans and cracknels, fish, classic food from the grill and a wide selection of vegetarian dishes.

How about desserts? Chestnut cake, pancakes with blueberries, various Pomurje rolls and much more. When you add the superb local wines, you get the perfect lunch.

The goulash, pumpkin pie and chestnut cake we ordered were simply fantastic!
