Traditional Slovenian food in nice surroundings

Very close to the river in a bit dark area at night you find this old Slovenian restaurant serving food from Ljubljanas protestant past. We had very nice servings - including combinations you would not have thought of! Beer and cheese soup... The cellar is with very nice interior and rustic - and... read more

the setting and location is quite nice, and the atmosphere is fine, but the food was really poor - it was italian food without any love or understanding of italian food. bland, stodgy and unappetising. when i told them this at the end of the meal after i'd paid, i met with blank stares and a shrug of the shoulders....

Last Saturday I was in this pizzeria Kavalino (Trubarjeva 52, 1000 Ljubljana) and ordered 2 pizzas for take away. At home I found on the top of the Pisa pizza (sea food) a cucaracha. Being pregnant and with a small child I did not want to come back and make a complaint. I immediately throw this pizza to dust bin,... More

We decided to select other than the traditional slovenian fare and were not disappointed. The quality of the food was excellent.

We stopped here for lunch upon recommendation. It was an extremely hot day and we sat outside on one of the terraces under a parasol. As well as lager we each tried the homemade lemonade. It wasn't fizzy and not particularly sweet but it was so delicious and refreshing and I'm looking forward to attempting to make my own as... More

The building where KAvalino is housed is old. No question about that. I am afraid though, that the owners of the restaurant did not invest in cooking as much as they did in the building. I visited the restaurant for dinner with business colleagues. The service was good, but the food was disappointing. I had the beef carpaccio which was... More

I have eaten in Kavalino several times. The place is lovely, very suitable for a romantic dinner or just lunch with friends. But lately, the quality of their pizzas has decreased. Dough was soggy and to salty, topping was not very tasty.

We had some good pasta with seafood here, and some decent Slovenian wine with it. The waiter was very friendly, and it's a very pretty place.

We had dinner on a week day. Not a bad restaurant in Ljubljana, had a great starter but the main was discrete. The location and the atmosphere are good and it's reasonably priced.
