Great spot for dinner near Bratislava Castle

Dined at Modra Hviezda during our second night in Bratislava. All aspects of the meal - the service, the food, and the atmosphere - were all exceptional. Highly recommended if you are looking for a romantic meal in Bratislava.

This restaurant can be found is on the right hand side as you walk up to the castle & we chose it because it served local food. We chose to have wild boar, which we enjoyed & had Slovak beer with it. We have only one comment to make about the restaurant - as it is our habit we ordered... More

This restaurant is located in the historic part of Bratislava and features traditional Slovak cuisine. We had the zucchini pancakes with mushrooms and the wild boar with parsnip puree for lunch and both were excellent. The décor was lovely and the wait staff was great.

I enjoyed my meal here. Trout for starters and wild boar for main course. Sitting inside what seems to be part of the old castle was the main thing about this place for me. Wines served were ok and service was excellent. A little bit on the expensive side but just a little.

We ate on the terrace, blankets brought as the evening cooled down and enjoyed the location tremendously. The food was well cooked, very flavoursome and the local wine excellent. The waiter provided super level of service. A really enjoyable evening.

The restaurant has a great old town location and an excellent terrace vista. Too bad about the food. It was overcooked and had no flavor. The preparation was completely unambitious. Sorry.

The things to remember about this restaurant are the truly professional service by the female waiter and the location of the restaurant. I had the wild boar with mashed potatoes, Unfortunately the boar was very much overcooked. The middle part should be medium rare, but it took me ages to cut the tough meat decently with a pretty sharp knife.... More

Dear customer, thank you that you did find a time to write about us. Wild boar is a meat which needs to be cooked for a very long time, it is not tender as fillet steak. We are sorry that you had not the best experience of your meal. We will try to improve the recipe. More

Pleasant little restaurant with simple but well-prepared food. No fancy business but tasty food. I loved their homemade dumplings. Close to the castle, also has an outdoor seating area with somewhat of a view over the water (a lot of trees in the way). The walk there is somewhat steep so I wouldn't recommend it with young children. The food... More

The layout of this restaurant is the first enticing feature. It has a "cellar"/cave-like atmosphere which is fabulous! The selection of wines are also quite good, though I did eventually settle for a glass of house cabernet from the Carpathian mountains! My meal was utmost enjoyable as I relished the Wild Boar that was served. The staff were exceptionally friendly... More
