Valvasor is fine restaurant in the old town which is usually a bit out of my price range for frequent visits. But during the restaurants week they offer an accessible menu. And I have to say it was actually good. We had a 4 course meal. A starter made from Slovenian winter vegetables with yogurt and some pumpkin seeds. This... More

We visited this restaurant with my wife. For 2 starters, one fish and 4 glasses wine payed 160 Euro. Too much. Better to avoid, because is too expensive regarding quality.

Fantastic food. We were offered a set menu which would be either fish or meat. (Could also have gone a la carte). We had the best octopus most of us have eaten and the rest was pretty special. Reasonably priced for us a the pound is string. Excellent service

We both had starters and a main course and it was made to perfection. The prices are not that high and for those... More

This restaurant really does stand out among the others from what I can see and definitely taste!! It is of course in a great location near the three bridges, very convenient to get to. So doing what I normally do here, I just roam around the city if I see something that catches my eye or read a menu that... More

we chose this place for a birthday celebration, for dinner on a cold, rainy Saturday. we made a reservation but it didn't seem to be needed. as we entered the restaurant, we were greeted by a nice, dimly lit ambience. the waiters were welcoming, and not overbearing. we ordered fresh tuna tartare with tangerine foam and terrine de foie gras...
