Very good restaurant in Kobarid

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

We sat outside on a sunny Saturday but beware it is on the main road so lorries rumble past. Food was excellent - oysters and a huge fish platter for 2 with good local wine.

We enjoyed the black risotto mushroom soup and fungi ravioli. They have great outdoor seating and I hear there is s patio out back that we missed. Ask them for vanilla ice cream with pumpkin oil and seeds. It is amazing!

We were staying in the connected Hotel Hvala (see review), and although aware of the reputation of the restaurant, were at first unsure. The inside decor was cheesy, and sitting outside fraught with risk (disgusting smokers, motorbikes). However, the food did not disappoint: sea bass carpaccio, followed my moules, then trout, with cheese for desert, schnapps and coffee. The service... More

No wonder the Italians come here for special dinners. All four of our meals were delicious. We sat outside and it was delightful. Outstanding, attentive service. Don't miss it.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and ate both evenings at the hotel restaurant. The food was very good and service reasonable (ie. but not fast). The tables outside on the terrace felt a little too close together to be totally relaxing but much nicer than sitting inside. The quality of the food is surprisingly good considering the... More
