In the centre of Šmartno pri Litija, near the famous church, the Pri Mačku tavern has been open for more than 100 years. It is famous for its traditional Slovenian cuisine, which is enriched by chef Matevž with a touch of modernity. Even private parties like to choose a restaurant with tradition. At the Maček you can choose between a modern small room for up to 25 people, a traditional large room with a bread oven suitable for up to 35 people, and a downstairs room, set in a former cellar under a 100-year-old ceiling, which can accommodate 15 people. The kitchen at Pri mačku also provides catering for various events.
The restaurant also has a pleasantly furnished summer garden, which can seat up to 70 people. The garden offers barbecue evenings, and children can enjoy the playgrounds and animals.
