We saw this restaurant online and liked the menu so booked by email and got a prompt response. Lots of local dishes and local wine list. Interesting interior - in the wine vaults. Good location next to the castle but you do pay a bit extra for this compared to the same dishes in the Old Town - but we... More

We were looking for authentic Slovakian cuisine...and we found, with a twist!!! We were delighted upon entering this fantastic restaurant, as it soon became apparent that we would be dining in a cave, by candle light!!! So exciting, so different and so romantic!! We ordered our drinks....I was handed the biggest glass of red, EVER and it was to die... More

We ate here twice in our recent trip to Bratislava. It is located on the way up to scastle from the old town past St Michaels and under the main road. The first time we arrived at 940which is late in Bratislava for eating. The waitress explained that we coud be served but would have to order quickly. We did... More

My husband and I came in the afternoon after a long travel day and loved the quaint atmosphere and hearty food. I had the baked trout (entire trout with baked potatoes) and he had the wild boar. Both were tasty and hearty and filled us up! More pricey than other establishments but the cave like atmosphere and decor were fun... More

Dear Anna, First of all, I would like to thank you for your visit, and also for nice feedback. 20% in the bill is not gratuity, but VAT. Yes, in Slovakia we must pay one of the highest VAT in Europe… Wishing all the best, Viktor Kováč owner More

Service is perfect, prices are little bit higher but there is still very good ratio money/value. There is nothing you can complain about. I always leave with very good feeling that I get more than what I pay for. They know how to make people happy:)

Very nice place, excellent service and food, close to Bratislava Castle. Try goose liver and cakes. Not so expensive.

We went to this restaurant for lunch based on the trip advisor reviews, but were hesitant because it was right by the castle. We hate tourist trap restaurants. This was far from a tourist trap and the venison goulash was the best meal I have had on our two week European vacation. Amazing food and good service. Love this place!!

We stopped at this hotel on our way from the castle to St.Martin's Cathedral when we stumbled on this restaurant on the hill with an option to dine in its historical cave like atmosphere or an option to sit outside overlooking the city. Expecting the same Eastern European cuisine we had encountered throughout our trip we were delighted to find... More

We had a nice meal. The flavorings on the mushroom dishes were quite nice. However, I don't think this restaurant compares with some of the restaurants we found in other cities in central Europe that were similarly rated. To find the restaurant cross from the old town by the Church and then make a right. Don't take the first crossover... More

We had been walking all over Bratislava - had just finished walking up to see the castle - and were on our way back to our hotel. Luckily we picked this random path - and decided to eat here. We had a table on their patio overlooking the area below. Great view (actually the main reason we stopped). The waitress... More
