My boyfriend and I popped in for a vegan lunch after reading these reviews and we weren't disappointed. He had a spinach quiche and I had a quesadilla. Really amazing food and all vegan. Hoping to return before we leave Bratislava!

This restaurant was very good. I ordered the spicy quesadilla and the Balan Burger. Which wasn't spicey, but it was one of the best quesadillas I have ever had. And I actually lived in mexico and am a good mexican cook myself. So that should...More
