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... More

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

This restaurant had great service and pretty good food! We had the scallops for an appetizer which was perfectly cooked. I had a lobster pasta and my fiance had a steak and we were both full and pleased afterwards. It has more of an upscale vibe but with reasonable prices. Perfect for a romantic date night :-)

We had a fabulous meal here on our last night; a special occasion and we weren't disappointed. We chose the fish option on the degustation menu - and every course was well presented and absolutely delicious! An amuse bouche of creamed spinach and horse radish was then followed by: * Fresh Adriatic tuna with tangerine foam * Tagliatellini with lobster... More

I went here for a dinner last week with a friend and we were both really pleased with the food and service. A great restaurant in the heart of the old town.

Still one of the best restaurants in Ljubljana, in spite of quite touristic location. Fresh regional ingredients (fish, shrimp, shellfish, truffle, you name it) are combined into simple but sophisticated dishes. You do not even need the menu, just a short discussion with one of waiters is enough. Wine list is extensive and shows perfectly the quality if regional winemaking.... More
