“Perfect”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

After a day of wandering the streets, we decided on Valvasor for dinner. The evening temperature was very pleasant, as was the first drink we had. From there on, everything just got better. We had more wine, entrees, mains and sessert and we could not fault any of it. The food was very good and the service was there to match. So much so, we went back two nights later and were not disappointed. then either.

“Decor is better than the food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

This is a really pretty restaurant, and my husband and I were drawn to its nice appearance and it's reviews on tripadvisor. The food is not terrible, but it's not great, either. The staff is helpful, and they have a quite decent house wine. The food is not memorable at all. I know I had a filet mignon, which was tough and mediocre. The prices are a bit hiked up for the quality of the food. Go a few places down, and you will find more flavorful and cozy places. But, if an impressive facade is for you, then by all means check it out.

“A gourmet experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

A true gastronomic experience in Slovenia.
The restaurant is modern and nicely decorated, we sat on the terrace.
You can choose daily offer, menus or degustation menus.
We ordered the surprise menu "chef's choice" 6 courses for 55 €. Accompanied by a tasting of Slovenian wines, another 40 €.
Fancy dishes, good presentation and service. The sommelier very attentive explaining each wine.
A highly recommendable experience.

“Food hit or miss, indifferent service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

Location is nice, and the design makes sense, though it feels a bit cold and lacks the cozy feel of most other restaurants in the area.

Had a truffle risotto as starter which was mostly very good, though it could have been a bit richer in truffle, and there was only one (slighlty overcooked) scallop on top. The rumpsteak in Teran wine sauce was mixed: good sauce, but the meat itself lacked flavour. Was offered a sort of lemon sherbet after that which was really good.

Main issue was on the service side though, which was really indifferent and quite slow. Though there were only three tables (for a total of 4 patrons) occupied in the main room, the two waiters had difficulties to cope with that. The head waiter (and sommelier) mostly spent his evening chatting with a solo patron about wine, thus leaving the two other tables hanging for their choice of wines (two different glasses for me). While the other waiter made some efforts, it meant receiving my second glass of wine, which was supposed to accompany the steak, while the plate was already half empty, and without explanation. Add to that a table of noisy Italian patrons (spending their evening watching silly videos at full volume on their smartphones), and I left a bit frustrated, cutting my losses by skipping dessert.
