Subtle on the outside, but step indoors and it's a vast cavern!

Had the mangalicka pork with chestnuts and pumpkin puree. Also the venison loin with plum sauce and potato puree. Desserts were chocolate and almond cake and the spelt and walnut cake. Really nice restaurant, excellent service.

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

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

After a nice visit to Bratislava Castle in the morning, we exited through Sigsmund’s gate (Žigmundova brána) with the intention of walking down to Old Town from there. We were also ready for lunch and since Modra Hviezda (translates to Blue Star) was the 1st restaurant just outside this gate, we checked out the menu which looked good and the... More

Great food. Most items on the menu run €10-€15. It is not cheap, but it is worth it . Fast and friendly service, menus are in English and the staff speaks english as well.

They serve good local meals but also one of the best steaks in town. You can find the Modra Hviezda restaurant (Blue Star) on the way up to the Bratislava Castle and another one is up on the hill called Hradna Hviezda (Castle Star).

Good service and convenient location close to castle. My foie gras was unevenly cooked – overcooked in some places and almost raw in others. The fish (zander) was not fresh and had a slight fishy taste. The pork chop and the root vegetables puree were very tasty however the meat had large amounts of fat that should have been trimmed...
