Sometimes the waiter makes the dinner particularly special. That was the case for our visit. Dajan (pronounced Dan) showed us special care and attention, and made knock-out recommendations for our entrees (especially the lightly-grilled tuna). Recommended by our hotel (Hotel Cubo), and it was an excellent choice!

The Valvasor restaurant is very popular with turists, not so popular with locals maybe because of that. Ambient is elegant and the food is great. No problems with getting the best wines from Slovenia. There is absolutelly nothing wrong its only the crowdy feeling you get from tables being to close to eachother. No intimate space avaliable, that is the only reason we come here so rarely. So if you dont mind to be so close to the table next to you i think its perfect for nice dinner or lunch on the terrace.

We walked into this beautiful place at 6:00 and asked if we could make reservations as we were ready to eat then, and I suppose it was the (manager) who declined us. “No...the evening is booked”. We left , only to return moments later and asked if we could eat now...persistence right? Perhaps it was my daypack that turned us away. I (was) carrying approx. $3000 US currency, so I don’t know why we were turned away at first asking.

My wife had the spaghetti with truffle sauce which was very very good, once a little salt was added. I on the other hand had the risotto with Shrimp and asparagus which was bland at best. The server, dejane...was exceptional at his job as he helped with a selection of wine. All in all, and having a degree in culinary arts, I wasn’t impressed upon the food. It looks good on the plate, but is just adequate on the palate. I would not go back. This is unfortunate because the place was very nice inside.

We had our anniversary dinner here. We ordered the fish menu for two...it was delicious and the wine pairing with each course was excellent. The ambiance is great and our waiter was friendly and professional. Outstanding dinner!

Our party--three couples--had a wonderful dinner. The dining room is splendid--elegant but relaxed. The food was wonderful--terrific branzino!--and nice Slovenian wines. Our waiter was delightful and helpful.
