We went to gostilna cad as it had been recommended as a good place for civapcici. On arrival we were told the only table available was one more suitable for two people (we were four), as we were leaving we were directed to ask another waiter who said that he was only responsible for outside seating but directed us back...

Gostilna Čad is the one of the best places for grilled meat. The location is good, they have big parking place and a lot of shadow in summer. Sometimes you need to have a reservation if you want to get a table. Before lunch or dinner you can go first on the hill Rožnik. From Čad you'll need aprox. 20-30... More

We arrived at 22:10. Your website says that you are open until 23:00. Your staff simply informed us that you decided to close early for the day, as "no customer has showed up in the last 30 minutes". Well, too bad.

This restaurant is located in the Ljubljana suberb, in a big nice park, so that you can seat outside and enjoy both excellent food and quiet lanscape around. the best dish to try is a mixed meat plate and salads. If you order a plate for two, it is enough for four!

There are so many tempting restaurants in Ljubljanas central streets that you may not think of looking further afield. I would like to say we did but we were introduced to Gostilna Cad when a Slovenian friend took us out for lunch. It is a 20 minute walk from the centre through the park or the road if you prefer....

We found this restaurant tucked away in the woods away from any commercial development, while hiking the beautiful trails around the Roznik church near Tivoli Park. The beautiful outdoor seating area had plenty of shade, and lovely table settings. The atmosphere is peaceful and surroundings lush and green. Service was outstanding. I had the mixed salad and pork medallions. Outstanding!

Thank blesk3
