Always great

We have been regulars at Cad for 9 years and have never been disappointed....seriously, NEVER! The grilled meats are fantastic, the sarma and pork ribs are always done to perfection and the Dunajski Puran (turkey) is always crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The staff is amazing... read more

One is good and one not so much. If you want to enjoy Balkan stuff this restaurant is a good choice. But you also get Balkan service.. At least we did. The table near ours was much luckier.. So it looks like it is a bit of a gamble.

A very nice location and worm atmosfer. The waiter a little disapointing not let us seat at the prefered table near the window. Overlooking this the pleskavica with kajmak and prebranac get all my points. I had been here 35 years ago and the food has the same taste.

Went for a Sunday lunch after a working morning at the Ljubljana Zoo that is very close by! The place was full... no more than full. Most of the customers were local. Despite being so busy everybody tried to help and they prepared a table in avery short time. The meal was really delicious, staff was helpful and knowledgeable! We... More

Last time I was here 3 years ago I was dissapointed. Very average at the time. The worse being prebranac that could be described just as - empty taste. Back again this time, they are back on track fully. Being "all that" that Balkan can offer. In taste that explodes in your mouth and the friendly attitude that should be... More

This place is very good! Unlike many other serbian restaurants the food here is not oily, but very nicely grilled. Plus Very traditional interior, good setting in Tivoli and polite attentive service make it an excellent choice

We visited this restaurant after spending the day walking around Ljubljana zoo. It is a bit of a treck from town but is definitely worth the effort. The garden is stunning, the service was excellent, the waiter was able to make recommendations, explain all the dishes etc. He was also very honest in suggesting that we would be fine sharing...

When you think of Cad, you think of cevapcici (grilled minced meat) and pleskavice (patties), which they are famous for. But stopping at that, you miss all their true culinary surpluses - their tack stake melts in your mouth and anything they do with mushrooms (great for vegetarians) is something you dream about for days on. What makes the whole... More
