Easy to walk past as the opening is a fish shop with takeaway counter. The restaurant is out back and looks fabulous. Well decorated and nice atmosphere. Extensive menu with so many options or just choose your fish and tell them how you want it...More

Situated just by the market square, it is easy to walk past this restaurant - a quick glance in from the street shows a fishmonger and place to eat a snack. Look past this towards the back and you realise there is a restaurant. The...More

Came back to Valentin for the third time while visiting Ljubljana on a wednesday night. Had a nice tomato soup (if you don't like rice, tell the staff as the chef tends to put it in most soups) followed by a fillet of sea bass....More

Sit at the bar and have a good, but not exceptional, seafood pasta for just around 4 euro. Spend a bit more outside on the square or in the restaruant and you will get fresh fish. Good deepfried calamari, but the best thing is the...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...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...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...More
