Popular underground bar and restaurant

This is a good place - a cellar type bar that serves food. It's mainly frequented by young travellers and is decent size, divided into a smoking and non-smoking section. The food was very reasonable if you choose to eat, and there are plenty of beers and even cider available. Friendly staff too... read more

Decoration was the best thing in this restaurant. Tried this lunch time and ate some non-slovakian style food. Maybe I recommend lunch from the lunch-list for another visitors. Food was good, service working well but still didn´t found anything why come back to eat daytime.

Great spot, cool atmosphere, great service, inexpensive and good quality food. Student specials are the best deals, even regular prices get you a great meal and cold beer for under 10eu. A must try.

I really enjoy going to this wonderful pub and on any holiday to Bratislava alway's make a beeline to here as it is a fabulous pub serving great beer in a unique atmosphere. The pub itself is located in a celler, a long narrow bar,booth seating, exposed brickwork and very interesting Soviet and Communist memorabilia plastered all over the pub.... More

Had a quick lunch eat for under 5 EUR (2 course and large beer), that was good value for money, although the meal was not excellent.

I visited this bar many times with my friends.....Its good place for large groups, since they have some big tables over there...However, overall it is one dirty, disgusting place with sticky tables.....If you are just looking for a place to get hammered - this would be the one for you. Toilets are horrible aswell. I never ate there, since I... More

We went on a Saturday night, there were quite a few in. service was ok, the drinks were cheap as in most places. The music was dodgy sounded like typical euro pop you would find on the Eurovision. The decor fitted the name. No more can be said really.
