Good quality food and enviroment. Service is above average with gentle waiters. It serves brazilian food and steak. One of its signature meals is raw meat which you can grill on hot lava stones. I would recommend this restaurant to someone who wants to have a more formal and elegant dinner but keep in mind that its price is above... More

Good selection of drinks including cocktails that were professionally made and tasted great. We both had the fillet steak lava stone - steak was tender and as expected - no complaints - sides and dips... More

Got to Bratislava last night, and as it was a public holiday, lots of places were closed so we came here. The food and the service was excellent. I had the grilled sea bass and my partner had beef tortilla - both delicious. We enjoyed it so much, that we came back tonight and both had the prawns and lava... More

This place is popular because of the lava stone. We all enjoyed the salmon, pork & steak on the stone & the side of veggies. Nice spot in the old town.

The food was good, but nothing special, but it was ridiculously overpriced! 15€ for a burger and 6€ for a bottle of water! Definitely not recommending it...

Located in the city centre of Bratislava, Rio Grande is a very nice steakhouse (but not only!). If you come here you can't miss the Lava Stone Steaks. Go for the Brazilian Filet (250g is a big quantity!) and you will be amazed! It will be brought on a hot lava stone and you can still cook it till you... More

We spend the night between the years at the restaurant. The food was excellent. It's kind of three in one: restaurant, pub and club. After midnight we move to the club. It was great. We stay untill 6 in the morning. With a day before we eat the famous beef on lava stone. Very good. One of the best pub... More

Advised to dine here by staff at our hotel, they were not wrong. Located almost opposite the Park Inn Danube, this restaurant served us up a wonderful night. A very good selection of food, I recommend the duck soup along with steak and a bottle of Rosé wine. Well priced, great staff with excellent English and a good view of... More
