Came here for dinner without reservation. Was promptly seated with no issues. Atmosphere is quite nice. Has an upscale vibe. Food was good. Had some issues with order accuracy, however could have been language barrier. Service was decent however, for such a restaurant would expect staff to be more attentive during dining experience. Overall, good option for dining. Would go... More

If you will ever be in Ljubljana, stop by at this restaurant. First day - ordered salad with goat cheese and walnuts - you just have to see the size of the plate.... It was enormous. If i had knew that it would be this big, I would have not ordered second dish ;) - ravioli. Salad itself has grapes... More

Here you can't really miss. A cosy and welcoming italian countryside ambient where I instantly feel ok. Tagliatta is always fine but also cant miss with great pasta or pizza selection. Seasonal offering is worth checking. Reservation recommended.

Rainy night in Slovenia and wanted a nice restaurant to grab a cheap cab to, Kaval was lovely, the ambience was good, the service from our young waiter was great. Steaks and Risotto is what we had and all was delicious. Would go back

Great food and nice people. We saw this on TripAdvisor and had to check it out! Superb Italian food and good local cuisine! We immediately reserved a table for Sunday :)

Restaurant has a nice atmosphere and steaks are a good choice. They also serve fish, but it was not a good choice. In a portion of a sea bass file with pumpkin risotto were only few little pieces of a fish and a large amount of risotto, although the price was the same as for a steak.

It is a very nice place in a suburb of Ljubljana. They have plenty of space inside and two gardens (terrace and a garden) for summertime. Service is good and they offer good food.

Place is a bit from Ljubljana downtown but very convenient lets say after hiking in nearby popular Smarna gora. They serve almost everything you like and they have wide selection of quality wines as well. Parking space is large and there is also playground for kids next to it.

I love the restaurant and the ambient and the stuff is very friendly. It is not a bad idea to do a reservation because sometimes they are full and you can stay without a seat. Food is tasty and T-bone steaks are delicious. Steaks are worth every single penny!

Thank Matija V
