Rough Guide said the options for dining were fairly limited so we spotted a Spar grocery store on our way back to the Toll Road and stopped there to get some bread, cheese, salami, a couple of spreads, chips, drinks and a couple of really tasty pastries, a Kremsnita (vanilla custard cream cake) and a Rezina Zagrebska (similar with chocolate), all for a whopping total of 9E.
Restaurant is in a special medieval-style, there is a big parking place for free and it is on the way to the Postojna cave. They have a varied offer (seafood, pasta, meat plate, salad bar..).
We took the pizza, which was very delicious.
Favorite Dish: Pizza was excellent. Others ordered the meat plate, which has a lot of meat with side dish at a very low price.
If you are just passing through, you may be tempted to eat at the fast food stalls outside the cave's entrance, but I would advise against it if you don't want to be overcharged for some tasteless burger. Instead, take a walk into town, and stop off in a cafe or fill up on sandwiches from a local shop.
Situated in the very heart of Postojna you will find this restaurant.

Right outside the entrance to Postojna Jama, this 1920's building it more like a palace. It is very nice inside with huge paintings of the caves and surrounding area and Art Nouveau decore all around. The food is not the cheapest in Slovenia but it is nice and you get large portions. A great place to stop off for lunch before or after exploring the caves.
Favorite Dish: Pork, Turkey and Beef with red peppers on skewers.
This resturant, close to the town center, has a large variety of Pizza's with not so common toppings. Some of the choices don't seem quite right for a Pizza. It is reasonably priced (1000 SITs for a small). The difference between small and large is only 300 SITs in price, but I a large is a much larger size (two people can easily share it). There is a terrace outside.
A very nice pizzeria with lots of (huge) pizzas and italian food to choose from.
They speak english.
Open from Monday to Saturday (10h - 23h) and on Sunday (12h - 23h).
Favorite Dish: Pizza
Lot of various Pizzas, cold Beer, friendly prices.
Only five minutes on foot from centre of Postojna.
