Great place for grilled Balkan style food. It is located under the Roznik hill at the very edge of Tivoli park. Very popular, often crowded, especialy during weekends.

Food rather heavy but very tasty. Staff could do with some up to date customer centric training. Prices generaly medium, but for Balkan style food, there are not many more expensive in Ljubljana.

Thank Frkolin

Large and very popular Serbian restaurant in the middle of Ljubljana on the edge of the Tivoli gardens. Typical Serbian cuisine alongside some European classics. Most main course dishes are very meat based, with kebabs, grilled sausages and hearty stews featuring heavily. Alternates between outside and inside according to the season.

Vegetarian options limited to the delicious 'side's' including cheese and spinach pie, a Boston baked bean like dish called Prebranec, and the delicious bread. However all portions are huge and a couple of these would be more than enough.

Service fast, helpful and efficient.

I had the mixed grill, highly recommended

We have been coming to Cad for many years now. The food is OK, although nothing special, and the service was acceptable until our last visit. We had a reservation for a larger party, but due to weather conditions, the restaurant was crowded when we came and no table was available in the roof covered section or indoors. Totaly understandable but luckily, the rain had stopped and the boss offered us a table outside. We had to wait a couple of minutes, so the waitors prepared the table and this was the bad part of our experience. The one who had to do it, was openly unpleasant, even asked us, if this was the only restaurant available (with meaning "can't you go someplace else and stop bothering me"). He kept insisting it will start raining again soon, even though the sun was coming out, just to drive us away. And we would have gone if we didn't have more people coming, besider the kids were hungry and finding another restaurant for all of us would really be a hassle. So we stayed. We got another guy for a waitor, who was better, although still pretty slow and also didn't give us the feeling of being welcome. In short, we won't be coming back any time soon. You are not the only restaurant in Ljubljana with decent grill.
