Great spur of the moment lunch

13 of us descending and they did a marvelous job. All of us ate and drank plentifully. Highlights were the fish capaccio and black risotto.

I had dinner there two nights a row. First night I had crayfish soup and grilled squid with spinach and potatoes. And of course wine. Soup was so, so good and perfect fit with that wine. Squid was selved with garlic oil on side and there was a lot of garlic on my spinach too. Squid was a little bit... More

We were surprised about the variety of food on this location. The deer (game) menu with knoedel was excellent, as well as the local desserts from Slovenia.

What I love about this place are cold fish/seafood starters - a must try. Not many places in Slovenia offer oysters, and the price is quite reasonable. We also had black risotto, scallops baked with cherry tomatoes and a trout - all very delicious. The ambience is a bit on the down side, and we've had better Malvazija (white wine)... More

A really great find in this area. We had the shell food platter and black risotto for starters - the risotto was superb! Fish of the day (dorado) and chateaubriand both of which we cooked perfectly. Service was excellent. The cost was around 120€ including wine which the three of us felt was very reasonable for the quality and service... More

We had 2 evening meals here whilst staying in the the hotel hvala. Friendly staff although a little rushed off their feet. Very good food , well presented and good size portions which were very welcome after a long days walk over the julian Alps from Italy .

Great service, the restaurant was full, but staff found a table for us. We ordered a fish plate, fish soup and panacota for a desert. Fish soup was delicious, fish plate was ok (fish was nothing special, but grilled vegetables were really good!) and panacota was good.

It is not easy to find vegan or vegetarian options in small towns, but they did a fine job producing a plate of grilled vegetables for me. The house wine (white) was particularly good too. The service was average.

Passing through Kobarid we tuned into the most recommended local Slovenian (slow)food hotspots. We were curious to try Topli Val for lunch. to our seafood themed trip. Indeed this place turned out to be a highlight, when Aleks the chef came to our table to discuss our choices. We kept it simple, in anticipation of a later dinner, but were... More
