Had dinner in this lovely place near the castle; a short walk from the old town. The staff were lovely and offered helpful suggestions. They weren't annoyed if these suggestions were not taken. The restaurant is in an underground cellar which is very quaint with little alcoves which provide some privacy for a romantic dinner. Prices were at the higher... More

On a Tuesday in mid-January we were almost the only guests, fearing we had - despite a friend's recommendation - ended up a in tourist trap (near the castle, in a vaulted building, menus in several languages). But we were seriously wronged. The food was amazingly good; the pork needs a special mention. The little plate of grilled almonds came... More

The Modra is located close to the Hrad castle, what makes this a good location for you to visit the castle and then come to the restaurant for a good meal. Service is very good. We were in 5 people, the waiter was very polite, indicated us a local wine (good price), and told us a little bit about the... More

Very nice ambience! The restaurant is situated in a spot like a "cave". Quite amazing! Food is delicious. We had only local dishes including smoked beef tongue (this dish really surprised me!), honey and mustard salad with apple horseradish, veal with horseradish sauce, and rabbit leg. We also had a Slovak white wine, which was very tasty. For dessert, a... More

Good food, warm and filling just what we needed on a very cold trip to bratislava. Just down the hill from the castle so a good resting stop also :-) overall good food, somewhat expensive by Bratislava standards.

Definitely one of the best restaurants I've ever been in Bratislava. Very pleasant atmosphere combined with delicious food and wine. Located in a quiet street nearby castle, you also have a chance to go for a romantic walk afterwards. 100% recommended for anyone considering going here.

At first sight this restaurant is magical, like stepping into a new corner of the world you never had the time to visit. Not a lot of restaurants give you this first impression and then keep it going through the night, but this one does. The atmosphere was great with quiet but very uplifting local music. Service was kind and... More

This little gem is as good if not better than its sister restaurant inside the castle. Their menus are similar but the surroundings here, have a much more homely feel. We had soup and smoked trout to start, followed by wild boar and trout with leek. Washed this down with a nice risling and paid €70 for a great evening.... More

Perfect food and service. Decently priced. €40 per person with a bottle of wine starter main and coffee/tea. Staff is friendly and very attentive. Food is tasty and in good portions. The restaurant has a good atmosphere and it is interesting and not usual.
