I have eaten in this restaurant many times...starting in 1993 when I lived in Bratislava for a brief time. It has an old world "wine cellar" atmosphere. Modra Hviedzda (Blue Star) is hidden away on a winding street just below the castle. The menu includes authentic Slovakian dishes.

Located in the historic part, on the slope under the Bratislava castle, partially in old historical cellars (due to their size ensuring intimate atmosphere for smaller groups, while bigger ones can be accommodated in the main room), nice interiors and atmosphere, offering a good choice of traditional Slovak meals, and efficient service.

We went there for dinner and fortunately booked a table since there were a lot of people on Friday evening. Staff was very friendly and even multilingual. It was not cheap for Bratislava, but still affordable. Since the food was excellent, the price was really ok. Great place if you want to drink wine, the choice of beers is rather... More

Went for lunch had deer stew which was quite good. We also had the tipical dish made of gnocchi, farmers cheese (sheep), and bacon that was pleasing as well however it is really nothing special; reminiscent of Alfredo. You should expect to be offered the "local" Apartif at 4 eurro. Also a pitcher of mineral water will be placed on... More

Situated in historic part of this wonderful city Modra Hviezda offers a nice selection of traditional slovak meals. I had a deer goulash which was really good balance beetween acid, sweet and spicy flavours. The whole experience of eating in ancient entourage combined with fantastic food made our day.

Not worth it really. Cosy atmosphere but food is low quality and way too expensive for what you get.

I am very sorry Typinte for this very strange experience you had in Bratislava. I almost doubt, if you did not confused Modrá Hviezda with some other restaurant when writing about "crap" food. We do not have such item in our menu... Viktor More

I had read about this restaurant on Trip Advisor and decided to try it based on the recommendations, after a visit to the castle. I arrived at an odd time, about 5pm, but they are open all day fortunately and there were a few other diners there at the same time. I loved the interior, was like a well appointed... More

We found the place after walking past it as we visited the castle, took a risk and turned up on sat night and luckily there was 1 table left, the menu was a little small as we looked at the starters and the choice wasn't that great but luckily the mains had a little more choice. I had deer goulash... More

Perfect meals, nice service, great atmosphere, usual prices for this level here in Bratislava. Inspite of having a company of 6 years old Grey parrot Congo near the bar, environment is clean and nice. And may be thanks to this:)
