We stopped there in the afternoon to have a drink and perhaps a dessert. After good 10 minutes the waiters actually noticed us and brought us the menu (by noticed I mean that they no longer ingnored us, they were aware of our presence as they were waiting the tables right next to ours). It took another 15 for somebody... More

I have always found the food to be excellent and good value. The staff were polite and patient, especially as only one of our party of 5 could speak Slovakian. The restraint is set in a really nice location, and if you get arrange it, a seat inside the tower is highly recommended for the best experience. Will hopefully be... More

We have been several times here, but I can't remember what I had here. This is my problem with this place. Grey. Not bad, but nothing special. Location is excellent, service average, food is good but nothing extra. Staff - sometimes good, sometimes less pleasant.

During weekdays sometimes the restaurant that is located in the tower is closed and only the garden is available... if the weather is good you will not mind it. Service was very good and friendly. Food was ok and the coffee was fine! Very tasty fresh mint tea:)

Set in an old tower, this place looks a little touristy, but makes a nice surprise. The restaurant is on the top two levels of the tower, a bar on the ground floor, and this gives it a cosy feel. Staff were knowledgable about the food and attentive, food good and tasty (the venison was fresh and well-cooked without going... More

I loved the setting, the restaurant is in a really historical building, I think it used to be part of the city walls. Food is excellent, service very good and prices also very good

This was my first time in Banská Bystrica and a friend recommended the Bašta restaurant up behind the SNP monument. We didnt expect much, but the place is very fresh, greatly renovated, the staff is attentive, helpful and speaks English. Preparing the meals took no time, and what we had was served in great style and was extremely tasty. For... More
