“Excellent meals for good prices, great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

This was my first time in Banská Bystrica and a friend recommended the Bašta restaurant up behind the SNP monument. We didnt expect much, but the place is very fresh, greatly renovated, the staff is attentive, helpful and speaks English. Preparing the meals took no time, and what we had was served in great style and was extremely tasty. For the few euros you get service and meals quality of a five star restaurant of of a much bigger town than Bystrica. The only issue we had was with the loud live music, but we just moved to a different part of restaurant and it was ok. A very nice supriise of Banska Bytrica, I will be coming back to this place.

In summer time is possible to have dinner outside of restaurant. Very good dish in whole year and good place for looking to east- south - west side of town

“This is a great place in...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2008

This is a great place in the very interesting and beautiful city of Banská Bystrica.
The building itself has a long history being part of an old city fortification system. Renovated, modern and fresh, it houses both a café and a restaurant with a very stylish interior (in the top floor). Treat yourself to a dinner in the restaurant if you visit Banská Bystrica, you won't regret it! The food is very good and waiters friendly and attentive. It is the ideal place for a romantic dinner! An added plus is that the place is very conveniently situated next to the SNP (Slovak National Uprising) Museum, close to e.g. Hotel Lux, Namestie slobody (Freedom square) and SNP square.
