We had some great food in this Koliba after having been refused nearby at “Tri studnicky”. The waiter was really nice, we had a great time. The waiting time is little bit too much, plus we witnessed they had quite a chaos in the orders...but if you have time and you are relaxed it is manageable. Parking is large enough and closeby. I recommend.More

With personal and friendly service, in a nice but simple wood furnishing, you will get real Slovak food. For a Swedich family, you will get "value for the money".

Full slovak menu, with all their heavy - but tasty - specials. The food came quick, but tasted good. Definitely the cheapest option of the 3-4 Koliba’s in the immediate vicinity.

We arrived at 10:30, just looking for Breakfast; everyone was hungry. My wife needed Coffee. It turns out everyplace is closed between 10:00 when breakfast ends and 11:00 when lunch begins. But the staff was very friendly and accommodating. They let us in and gave...us Coffee Tea and pancakes for the kids. At 11:00 we ordered bean soup, garlic soup, Turkey breast, grilled chicken breast. Grilled vegetables. Everything was very good. We really enjoyed the meal! Very good food. Very nice staff, and nice wooden tables and area. Everybody was happy. I recommend the place.More

Great place with traditional decor and folk music. Food is tasty and portions are generous. I definitely recommend dumplings with sheep's cheese. Staff is also very friendly and everybody speaks English.

I visited this restaurant at few occasions. The staff is always very friendly and can easily communicate in multiple languages. The food has really good standard. Lots of traditional dishes. I love the decorations, all the craft on the walls and traditional costumes on display....I find the waiting staff in traditional costume very refreshing. The ladies look fabulous. It is really good presentation of what Slovakia has to offer. The only choice of music could be better. It would be great to hear some Fujara music or more local "folklor" rather than csardas.More
