This restaurant was my favorite in Bratislava for 2 years but no more. I had a dinner tonight with business partners. The food was nice as usual. Things happened when paying. The lady with glasses gave me the bill was 145 euro, and putting in the card reader 160 euro. I asked the reason because the gap was more than... More

The menu has misleading prices for glasses of wine. They charged us for 4 glasses of wine even though we had only 2. This occured because the price refers to 100 ml of wine whereas they serve 200 ml without telling you! Beware of this trick!

In Slovakia, if a customer asks for a glass of wine, he always refers to 200ml, this is simply how we are used to it. In other countries a glass of wine means 150ml -... More

Been at Rio twice, during 2 business trips in Bratislava. The food is very good, the steak in lava stone is delicious and the ice cream again in lava stone is a perfect dessert. The place has an excellent location, right in the old city. The atmosphere is very nice, especially in the evening. Strongly recommend it for a good... More

Unfortunately we had a very awful experience at this place. The waiters were very rude to us. For example (and this was one case out of 5 things that happened) we asked for desserts and there was a strange taste, onion like, in the strawberry mush. Everyone of our group tasted it. So we asked one of the waiters what... More

We were in Bratislava on a day trip and stopped here for lunch. They are along a main drag of shops and restaurants. The day we were there, there was a photo display along the the pedestrian area. We sat in the enclosed porch area, and had a great view of the photo display. The food was so good. Hubby... More
