Decent burger

I won't review the food - never went there for that. However, their burger is top-notch. Made from blcak angus beef, garnished with less than regular sides and nicely dabbed with home-made sauce, it tastes ridiculously good. Plus, the surroundings are really nice - a nice little getaway during the... read more

You will never miss to go to Kaval whenever you just need some good pizza with a beer. Plenty of space to hang with friends. The location is nothing special but the parking is huge so you'll always find a spot.

A typical "wide variety, good food, but mostly for the masses" place. If hungry, sure, one can find something here, from pizzas, pastas to the salad bar. But no superlatives, neither in the food nor in the service. If you want an experience, Ljubljana has so much more to offer...

This is one of the most well known Italian restaurants in Slovenia. If you look Italian cosine you will love it here. Pizzas, lasagnas etc are made in a brick oven and the taste is phenomenal. The restaurant can be quite busy so calling ahead is a smart thing to do. The prices are more of a fine food restaurant... More

This restaurant continues to provide fine wines and food in a relaxing environment where insde or outside you can sample some of the best of what slovenia has to offer. on this occasion five of us shared a table under the awning in the grounds, beside an outdoor barbeque. It was a summer day and over three hours or more... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Ljubljana. On this occasion it was hot enough to sit out on the terrace. Started with a choice of Salad from the excellent Salad bar. Followed by Baccala with toast and Carpacco of Tuna, finally a John Dory big enough for five peple. Accompanied by some excellent Slovenian wines. Service was both professional and... More

The food was quite nice, although nothing really special. The atmosphere and interior are somewhat average as well. The service was bad though, the waiter was not polite and kept us waiting for a long time.

Kaval is in my opinion pretty much the best food place in Ljubljana, especially if we talk Pizza and Italian. Its kind of a hidden gem. Even though it is popular place it is placed at the suburbs, so you need to make conscious decision to visit the place. Best time to be there are sunny days during springs and... More

If you want charm and a great place for a dinner party go here! The ambiance is so charming. The wine options are quite good, and the traditional Slovenian dinner options amazing. We tried a variety of things and all of us were delighted. My wife had ravioli with truffles. Awesome! I had the pumpkin ravioli and it was equally... More

We were a party of twelve, Slovenians with foreign business guests, who we took to Kaval because we were sure it will be wonderful. But it wasn't. The restaurant was maybe half full or not even that on a Saturday evening. We had a reservation for a table. Ordering was fine, they also have menu's in English, so that was... More
