Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We selected Valvasor for a special meal and were not disappointed - the food quality was excellent. The location of the restaurant is lovely , in the old town and near the river. Booking advised as we went on a Saturday night and if we...had not booked we would have been very disappointed.More

Wouldn’t even open the door to us. They were booked up so opened the door ajar and told us they were full, so goodnight. It was like being told to go away. So rude. Rude enough to make me write this review!

We enjoyed a fantastic dinner here with the salt crusted sea bass for two. It was cooked perfectly and was so deeply flavorful and light. Starter of local oysters and scallops made for a healthy and delicious fine dining evening.

The food was excellent and the service was even better. Our waiter Dejan really knew his stuff about wine and food. He made great recommendations for both. We were not rushed. It was a beautiful evening sitting outside enjoying our dinner. The truffle pasta was...fantastic.More

Beatiful restaurant. Great food, winelist and service. Menus good value for money and great choice. The only thing that went wrong was that our reservation wasn't noted but had it in mij mail. Luckily there was a table for our group.

The food was simply exceptional! In particular, the sea bass with truffles and truffle sauce was the most delicious seafood dish I have ever had, and both friends who ordered it agreed! Also, excellent service and wine selection. Exceptional!!!

this restaurant is fine dining and a bit expensive but it’s so worth it!! first for starters we got the scallops which were absolutely delicious, then for pasta we got the pasta with fresh lobster which was really good the lobster was very tasty and...good and the sauce with the pasta made the perfect match, and as a main course I got the spring lamb and it was the best lamb I’ve ever had in my whole life it was juicy, buttery and soft, and all around AMAZING, and to end I got the chocolate suffle for a dessert and that was so so good and deliciousMore

Man o' man, was this place one heck of a restaurant. It was probably one of the best restaurants we had been to in 9 countries in 31 days when in Europe in March 2023. We had asked for a recommendation for dinner at the...tourist information place and they gave us the place next door who also own this place. The place they told us about was full but they said to go next door as it was owned by the same owners and served much the same food. So glad we did. The restaurant is a Michelin rated restaurant (which we found out after we went). The service when you walk in was impeccable. We were slightly underdressed (as we were backpacking) in jeans and a buttoned shirt but we were still treated well. The menu was very well put together with a good selection. We choose an entre, main and dessert and also had drinks as well. The food was amazing, one of the two best meals I've had (both were in Europe on this trip). The taste of all meals and dessert was just phenomenal. The care it was prepared with translated through to the plate and the meal was just excellent. The waiter was attentive throughout and made our time their enjoyable and memorable. The pricing for this was also excellent. For what we got and what we actually paid for it made it even better. Such a good meal in a beautiful restaurant, amazing service and at an excellent price. This is a must visit restaurant when in Ljubljana.More

From a Michelin listed restaurant I expect more… the quality of the food was very good, but it was neither exceptional nor creative. The service was exerted, but he forgot things we ordered (he apologized without us mentioning it) and his knowledge of wine was...limited: Tokaji is about the origin of wine, orange wine is a way to make wine (independent of it‘s origin): The wines we had were ok, but not more. Go to the Zlata Ladjica - you will pay more, but you‘ll get much more for your moneyMore

I was not quite happy with our visit to this place - I had expected better. Our waiter turned out to be too dominating in suggestions and reluctant to show menu and wine list with prices. We got the feeling that he was always trying...to sell the most expensive wines without showing the prices. We had to insist to see the wine list. I complained to the waiter himself and told him that this would be published in a review. He said he didn´t care. But to be fair, the food we ate was outstanding - we had this Classic steak. There was another group of our friends at the same time with different waiter and they were very pleased, so that is also noted here.More

I agree with Lee. Personally, unless their tastes are very mature, I would say there are more children friendly choices nearby. Valvasor is a great restaurant, but very much an experience for the mature palate. Children... More
