Had dinner at Valvasor with my wife. Ate outside and it is noteworthy that nearly all the guests were locals. This is a sure sign of a good restaurant. Food was good, service professional and Slovenian wine excellent

Restaurant can be described as being very cosy and warm. Staff is extremely welcoming, which is something that puts you in the right frame of mind. Food was very good and the local wine offered is a good addition . Highly recommended restaurant

Returned for lunch. Excellent food as usual at a very reasonable price. I would recommend this restaurant for any special occasion. The menu offers a fine selection of choices with local produce at the fore along with an extensive wine list.

We had lunch in one of the ljubljana's best restaurants. We decided to take lunch offer and we got: for a price of a budget/midrange meal we ate first class food served by first class service in a first class surrounding. I can only recommend!

Good but not worthed the top place on tripadvisor list. After slight dissapointment some time ago we gave it 2nd chance but still didn't convince us. There are quite some better options in Ljubljana in that price range. "Medium" steak was overcooked. Service should be friendlier and giving you feeling that you are welcome.

food & wine were nice! however, it is a bit pricey and I don't think the food matches with the price. All Staffs were kind but tooooooooooo slow to do sth....except the one who is wearing glasses. Without him, we had to wait half an hour to get our bill. 슬로베니아 음식이 맛있는데 비싼곳도 꽤 많아요 여긴 조금은 비싼 것... More

I visited Valvasor for lunch and was impressed by the elegant decor. I had the pasta with truffle and pancetta, which was delicious and perfectly prepared. There was one slice of fresh truffle on top, and, at this price point, I wouldn't have expected more. A very nice experience.

This restaurant like many others in Italy and Ljubljana has a minimal per person cover charge. It covers the bread and a complimentary course they bring out. We enjoyed our salads (shared 2 among 4 people) and ordered truffle pasta dishes and a grilled fish fillet special. They have indoor and outdoor seating and inside was nicely air conditioned on...

We visited here Monday evening with four people. Nice welcome. We enjoyed a sparkling wine as we chose our food. The chef sent an amuse bouche of puréed essence of tomato with a bit of soft white cheese, nice. Our waiter was excellent in recommending wines. We are seasoned wine people but did not know Slovenian wines well. All choices... More

We sat down and when asked if we wanted drinks we requested just water. The waiter appeared angry but quickly brought us our water. Then we ordered one appetizer to split and again we got bad vibes from the waiter. He said the appetizer was very small and was really just for one. We stuck to our decision and was... More
