Nice atmosphere and good food

The food was very nice, as was the selection of wines there were available. The fish was great! I'd recommend this place for a nice dinner!

Fantastic food and servers, reasonably priced and friendly atmosphere. They accommodated our large group of 30 on a moments notice and everyone enjoyed their meals greatly. Would recommend highly....also visited the club downstairs which was busy both times with friendly staff and patrons...and if that is too busy for you, there is a more low key lounge area on street...

We used to visit Rio in the past, because we loved the lava stone steaks. We were surprised by the price increase - 150g steak for 20 EUR - this is really not worth the money when you take into account that the chef doesn´t need to take care of the preparation based on your request. Gnocchi con petto d’anatra... More

Called here for food on last night, treated myself to the fillet steak, which was well worth the e24.99!!! Best I have ever had, and the general feel of the place was upmarket but relaxed and friendly all the same. (Quick tip: Slovakian meat is ordered Medium or Well-Done, I normally have Blue/Very Rare - which it turns out is... More

We stopped at Rio Grande for a glass of wine and a cup of coffee. We were new in Bratislava and the place seemed nice, with the glass covered terrace. The waiter was very attentive and his english - excellent! The wine, a local produced Riesling (or so it said in the menu), good and at a really fair price.... More

I was in Bratislava 4 years ago and ate here twice. Both time I got the fillet on a stone that comes with a side and 3 dipping sauces. Amazing meal. On the second visit I morphed to the nightclub downstairs and had a blast. I am in Bratislava now and just finished the same meal at my favorite eating... More

I spent valentines evening here and had a really good evening. Candle light and rose petals on the table added a nice touh. The service was attentive but also relaxed, all staff spoke perfect English so this made it very easy for me to ask questions when ordering food and wine. The steaks (as people have already said) are good,... More

Perfect place for a nice steak and great service. We were in Bratislava for a quick vacation after Prague and was recommended this place by our hotel. Perfect location from the hotel and service was great. Steaks and burgers were enjoyed by our party as well as some slovakian beer. We chose not to cook on the lava stone but... More

Excellent steak!!! Yeah I hear Gaucho down the street is better, but they like theirs allot more price wise. I would come here for the better price any day. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the restaurant. I enjoy a perfectly seasoned and cooked Argentinian steak each time. For those of you who are from America, but live here you... More
