This restaurant was chosen for us to meet family in Slovenia that we have not seen in many years. I was not disappointed with the food, and after traveling in other parts of Europe was extremely happy to see that the food had a significant amount of flavour. I started with the onion soup which was good, I have had... More

Nice restaurant with good athmosphere and tasty food. Is not just a typical steak house, but also a good pasta place. Not expensive and for sure worth visiting!

A very friendly restaurant with (mainly) Italian type of meals. Staff is extremely friendly, the place is equipped with a cosy old furniture. Food is normal standard good, but I've eaten better.

The grilled squid in Livornian art was very-very delicious. The grilled mozzarella with ham and salad is superb. The service is helpful, but sometimes slow.

This restaurant is located outside Ljubjana but it's definitely worth the trip! Amazing pizza and one of the best Irish steak I had recently. The atmosphere is quite nice and the service is efficient. You can go there during the summer to enjoy a drink on their terrace, the place is nice. Lot of business people like us so you... More

We ate a Kaval at the recommendation of our B&B. It was a warm, family-style Italian restaurant. We ate excellent pizza. It looks like it would be wonderful to go in the summer as there was an outdoor space as well.

Charming and warm rustic interior, nice terrace, great service, excellent food (amazing home-made fettucini with fresh porcini mushrooms, and very nice veal cutlett with grilled polenta and vegetables). The service was very attentive and prompt throughout our late lunch. Kids got fun drawing kits which was also a nice touch. Real parmigiano left with a cheese grater at the table... More

I've eaten in Kaval on a number of occasions. It has always justified it's reputation. Both parts - brick pizza and the restaurant part are very cozy furnished, reminiscent of an old farmhouse; a lot of old reclaimed wood furnishings and similar. Very nice food selection with a lush salad bar and an exquisite vine selection. Service is excellent. Restaurant... More

I first went to this restaurant ten years ago. Over the years it has grown bigger and bigger and now seems to have more outside than inside tables. I have always enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. We took a friend for a special birthday meal this time and sat in the garden. We shared starters from the special menu... More
