Highly recommended restaurant. The place feels really prestige. The food is very good. We had the beef stew, it was delicious. The staff was very nice, took our picture and did it with a smile. We enjoyed the place the food and the atmosphere. Will go again for sure.

Offers some great food, Balkan food and steaks especially, is a bit pricey but worth it, the ambiance is extremely pleasant, particularly in the summer when it offers some shade and doesn't get that hot in the garden

This restaurant was great. My brother and I were in the mood for good Balkan food and certainly Gostilna Cad exceeded expectations. The beans dish tasted just like my grandmother's, the cabbage salad was great and the chevapchichi were the among the best I have ever had. For 2 people, the bill came to 28 euro and we had more...

Excellent dinner in an outdoor garden, with Serbian specialties grilled to order. Service was impeccable ad all the food was delicious. The portions are large! Plan accordingly. Don't miss the beans and the bread and the salad with cucumbers, tomatoes and cheese. Desserts--especially the walnut crepes and the pan cotta--were exceptional.

We went to Gostilna Cad in our last day in Ljubljana and it was a really good choice: the place was beautiful, waiters were helpful and nice and the food was excellent. We had no clue what the food was in the menu, so the waiter made us a mixed menu of different kind of Slovenian food and it was... More

Good food - Balkan speciaitys on grill are at its best. Another plus is big garden under the trees - really attractive in a sunny weather. Also nice starting point foe a walk to the Roznik hill or ZOO.

One of the best gardens and atmosphere in Ljubljana in sommertime. If you love meet and grill, than this is a place to be. Real grill with charcoal which gives a proper flavour to meat. Portions are enourmous and tasty. Fast service and kind waiters.
