Been here a couple of times on business trips. Service generally starts swiftly but once the mains have been delivered it's a different story. However, the food is excellent and makes it hard to not try again.

Restaurant Valvasor could be in New York or Paris because is achieving world top standards. When you enter restaurant you will be nicely greeted by professional waiter.

The restaurant is very nice and posh, however, the food we had was not so great. We took the seabass, which is supposed to be their best seller and the fish did not have any taste and the potatoes were massively undercooked. The desert we had- chocolate suffle basically- was dry and not that nice either.

We love this restaurant so much, the cravings to go back have actually triggered multiple 4 hour spontaneous trips to Ljubljana just so we can go here. The food is delicious, the prices super reasonable, and the service is extremely professional while not being stiff. Plus figuring out how to open the door to the bathroom is a fun challenge...

This restaurant like most in the old town of Ljubljana has tables outside but the inside is modern,charming and chic. The wait staff were most attentive and our meal was delicious. Great green pea soup followed by succulent lamb chops and then a creme brulee. The wine list featuring regional wines is good. Music is kept at a tolerable level... More

My colleague and I went here for dinner after checking out the menu from the street (no reservation). We both had the small house salad, sea bass and creme brulee for dessert. All of the food was wonderful and reasonably priced. With a glass of wine each our bill came to $65 Euro. Definitely recommend!

Our first dinner at Valvasor was so good we made reservation for the next night. Arrived, warmly welcomed and the table we requested was waiting. Started with the pea soup with yogurt. Wonderful, creamy fresh pea flavor with the tang of the yogurt. So very good. Next, the cutlet of lamb. This is a description that does not work. What... More

Valvasor has a very satisfying menu with lots of highfalutin dishes. The best one, in my opinion, is the asparagus pasta with prawns.

I tried and could not get a place so the following day I booked a dinner spot. This is definitely one of the top restaurants in the city. I would rate it lower than Julija on food quality though other factors such as ambiance would put it ahead. I had steak, medium rare, on a bed of mashed potato truffle.... More
