We stopped at the restaurant on our way from Hungary to Poland. It's a nice place with good food. Not great food but good. It's children friendly, meaning the courses are acceptable for little ones who typically reject green vegetables, onion, garlic and so forth....More

When traveling in Slovakia we found this restaurant a few kilometers behind Banska Bystrica on our way to Tatra mountains. Menu consisted of mostly local meals prepared right to our order. Everything was of a great quality including friendly service.

Every time I drive around I have to stop to have something tasty. Really great food experience. The quality is excellent, price is great, you can enjoy as alone, with friends or with family. It s on my “must” visit every time

The place is out of Banska Bystrica. The venue is nice. The staff does not speak English, but it is very friendly. The main course was very delicious. The place worth visiting.
