We had already walked by the restaurant on a few occasions and we went there for dinner on our last evening in Ljubljana. I recommend to make reservations, we didn't and had the very last table. The restaurant consists of a fishmonger, a 'street food' restaurant where you can have simple fish dishes at a counter and a proper restaurant,... More

I'm vegetarian, so I don't eat fish. But I was with a friend. He likes very much qualified restaurants. And it was amazing: - you can see all fish and seafoods they have in the fridge in the restaurant. So you see exactly what you order; - they have really big choice. You feel like you're in Greece; - they... More

I have been there with friends for New Year Eve dinner. We had a bottle of Lugana in the mean while waiters was arranging our table (even if we had reserved a table in advance!). Once entered the menù was restricted for a dedicated choice: average entry course prices 20€, average main course 35€. Extremely high. The final bill ,... More

This is a real find. Not only can the locals come to purchase fish but behind the store is this most amazing restaurant. The advertising is deceptive and the word needs to get out as we almost missed this place. The selections are gastronomically pleasing from he appetizers to the dessert. I cant recommend this enough. The drinks were reasonably... More

My partner and I wandered into Valentin a bit late on a Monday night. When we arrived I was slightly confused by the fish shop in the front and thought we had made a wrong turn but we wandered through and found a delightful, cozy restaurant in the back. When we arrived there were only two other tables and we... More

Only 1 waiter, scallops 3.50 euro each for thumbnail sized morsels that were overcooked and tasted as if defrosted. Stuffed squid was exactly that... boring with minimal filling. Spaghetti marinara had unshelled prawns and old mussels. Not one piece of fish. Only saving grace was the decor. Was tempted to go as is listed in Ljubljana tourist guide... had similar... More

our fish was good, not too much, but just enough and I ordered a nice side order of veggie plate (very good ante-paste) for 3.50 € with a good 1/2 lt red wine. 2 persons 44 €

All the fishes were fresh, but there were a lot of fishbones in the seabass and also in the salmon. The chocolate cake wasn't good.

I have visited the place twice now on different occasions and they did not disappoint - wonderful service and great, great food. Always fresh and prepared to perfection. The desserts I would skip on, it is not their forté - they are not bad, just average. I would recommend you take another seafood dish instead, they are masterpieces. The location... More
