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

We were a group of 12 people, some of us were visitors from other Evropian country's. So let me start on the beginning... When we arrived we of course had a reservation,it was in the... More

It is a pleasure to have a restaurant that will never disappoint you, where waiters are always nice and friendly and where you can eat a perfect pizza but also an excellent steak although the real special is pasta. Really good!

I went there by chance, a local colleague took us there while we were in a business trip. The food and wine were great, the staff was kind, the dessert was fine. Villiam's rakia was superb! Warm recommendation to anyone staying in Ljubljana who want to taste something more than the restaurants in the city centre.
