We went on a Saturday night and they were turning away people who hadn't booked. Although not quite as good as Julija (the restaurant next door) it was nevertheless very smart and pleasant. The food was a little variable and perhaps under-seasoned here and there but overall we had a good time and would recommend it.

Very nice outdoor placing in the old town. Food is ok, but nothing to die for. Price is relatively high, in relation to average service and food. Inner space is tiny, would not reccommend it.

Great location in old town, just one street back from the river. The staff were wonderful and friendly with great recommendations. The food was excellent, very high quality. Way better than what was on offer along the river.

Food was excellent as chef's recommendation together with wine. Service was as usual, price level high compared to the others in the area.

I've visited Valvasor on three separate occasions - on each I was not really disappointed but in no way impressed either. Atmosphere is quiet, food is bland and unimaginative, overall experience is of a place that simply doesnt live up to its promise.

We visited for lunch and it was our best meal all week! My friend had delicious risotto and I enjoyed my steak. It was tender and cooked to perfection. Fine wine selection as well. Excellent waiter with good recommendations and attentive service. We truly enjoyed our experience at Valvasor- it should be #1 rank!

We have just returned from a superb evening at Valvador I would like to have tried the degustation menu but my better half wouldn't play Having gone for the superbly cooked fillet mignon, which would certainly fed both of us, we decided discretion was definitely the better part of valour! My better half had the veal, which I understand was... More

Absolutely the best choice that we could have made. Amazing restaurant, very smart and really professional service. We arrived late for the tasting menu, but the waiter helped us to choose our dishes. We had a local ham with melon and asparagus tempura with goat cheese, and to be honest, the goat cheese was delicious. Then, we had a small... More

A group of 6 of us ate here. The wine was great, as was the veal cutlets and the creme brulee - wow. My only critique was the fois gras; i've eaten it in about 7 places now and this was by far the worst, it just didnt taste very nice at all. I definitely recommend it however, and its... More
