The restaurant is located in the old town historic district about a block from the river. In addition to the romantic location, the food is amazing and the staff was friendly. It's fine dining -- but not snoody.

We ate at Valvasor on our trip to Ljubljana. The food was excellent and the service was great. If you want good food in and find dinning this is the place.

I have been 3 times over the year and always had a very good meal and service. The location is excellent and it is a pleasure been sitting outside watching the Slovenians going by. The restaurant is a middle size, especially during the winter so that reservations, even a couple of hours ahead, are recommended. The food seems to change... More

Average describes thes place pretty well. We went to Valvasor for a small and quick dinner and both of us decided to have a starter and risotto only. I have to day the starter was pretty good. I took scallops and my girlfriend took octopus. Both dishes were fresh and tasty and pretty good actually. But then average started to... More

Everything is top drawer, food, service, atmosphere, prices are reasonable. Daily menus are great, though if you're really hungry it might not be the best choice (yet it depends on the dish, pasta and risotto are usually generously sized). I eat there almost every day

The restaurant is nice and the menu promising. I had fresh tuna with tangerine foam as a starter and it was good but it tasted hand looked kind of unfinished. As the main course I had risotto with shrimps and zucchini and that was more than disappointing, it was too thick, I literally had to look for the shrimps and... More

Over the top restaurant ...could be a french one! Kudos to the chef. Even the local white wine is delicious: chardonnay 2014 from Marjan Simcic Great decoration, stylish service and delightful jazzy music in the background. Une adresse a ne pas manquer lors de votre passage a Ljubljana

To each his own. Some might even call it the best - while not having been to the others I know well. Nevertheless, it is a truly commendable venue during the hot summer months, seating either in the modern restaurant, or outside right on the narrow main street of medieval Ljubljana below the formidable castle. Traffic-free zone, of course. Settings... More
