No day is perfect without a tasty meal! All sorts of different adventures inside and outside the cave are complemented by a wide variety of food and drink options to suit all wishes and tastes.

Magdalena Food & Fun
Magdalena Food & Fun, located right next to the entrance to the iconic Hotel Jama, is a perfect culinary destination for all of you, globetrotting visitors looking for some good old culinary classics with a modern twist after all the exciting underground adventures. Modern street food is just the thing for you – all sorts of gourmet burgers, craft beers, house-made ice teas and good coffee are always an excellent choice.
The restaurant was named after Magdalena Cave, one of the five Postojna Cave system caves, which the restaurant imitates in terms of its architecture an interior. A narrow shaft in the middle of the forest represents a dramatic entrance to the cave and an inspiring, green-clad view upwards – towards the surface and the light. Equally dramatic is the upward view in the middle of the restaurant, towards a high glass ceiling. Covered in greenery, it efficiently imitates the entrance to the cave. A large central table – a community table – is a good choice for those of you who love having company. In fact, the basic caving rule according to which no one is supposed to go into caves alone applies on the surface as well. Comfortable couches and a lounge area are a perfect place to relax after all those cave adventures, so you can share the highlights of Postojna Cave, the queen of caves, with your friends.
Burger aficionados, don't leave without tasting the most popular dish on the menu, the Cave Burger.
A modern and enticing interior with a warm ambience adds to the experience of the restaurant. Come, relax and experience the Postojna Cave Park through Magdalena Food & Fun. Welcome!
