Chef Peter Kovač

The most important person in the Maxim restaurant is chef Peter Kovač. Peter is a modern and technically skilled chef, sophisticated in the world of culinary art, who brought a breath of fresh air and many ideas for new dishes into the restaurant. He began to introduce new dishes as soon as he took over this prestigious Ljubljana restaurant; however, the basis is still rooted in French cuisine with a touch of Mediterranean and local flavours, as Peter enjoys using local ingredients and traditional methods of preparing his creations. Three times a year, he and his team completely rework and refresh Maxim's menu. The dessert menu is also refreshed each time to offer even more sophisticated and spectacular items. Since dishes must be accompanied by the best wines, the wine list is also updated annually. The focus is mainly on light, fresh Slovenian wines.
