After more than ten years of planning, a new restaurant has opened in Vlkolínec. It will mostly offer services requested by tourists, regional daily My Liptov reported.

The restaurant opened in the rear part of a house on the main street. It used to be a gamekeeper's lodge in the past, later serving as a small shop with miscellaneous goods.

Local cuisine and Liptov specialties

The spokesperson of the Ružomberok mayor, Viktor Mydlo, explained that the the project was approved in 2015 along with the construction of the UNESCO house during the outgoing negotiation of the government.

“The completed real estate will be operated by the winner of the public trade competition announced by Ružomberok,” he said, as quoted by My Liptov.

The restaurant opened at the end of October 2019. They want to cook local cuisine and Liptov specialties. It welcomes visitors all year round. In the winter season, the restaurant will only be open on weekends.

“A restaurant offering tourists and locals traditional food in Vlkolínec was lacking here. That was the main reason we decided to widen services offered in this beautiful part of our scenic town,” said Igor Čombor, mayor of Ružomberok, as quoted by My Liptov. “I am really glad that it came true after many years of work.”
