Incredible culinary experience. The waiters were very kind and helped us choose our meal. The dishes were very tasty, in a nice portion and allowed us to try very traditional slovekian food. I recommend this restaurant at 100%.

We ate here for dinner our last night in Bratislava. We arrived a bit early for our reservation, but were seated promptly. Our waiter was great, and even sold us on getting a starter, we chose the beetroot and cheese stuffed strudel. For my main...course I had the Venison loin with blackberry dumplings, which was fantastic. My boyfriend chose the deer goulash which he also thought was great. For dessert, we had the poppy seed dumplings which were different, and not as sweet as I was expecting, but still very good. I love the ambiance of this restaurant, it’s very romantic. The food, service and environment was all fantastic.More

My wife and I made reservations here during a recent trip because we wanted a nice, quiet meal with some Slovak-inspired choices. We shared dumplings, then I had the mangalica with pumpkin and chestnuts and she ordered a salad. I loved what I got and...couldn't get enough of the pumpkin and chestnuts; it all felt like good comfort food. We sat under the brick arch in the center of the restaurant and had great service. It was the experience we came for.More

Marvellous atmospheric restaurant on the castle side of the city. Terrific roast duck. Together with delicious starters, beer and excellent Slovak wine by the glass, the bill came to €84 for two.

The meat was not well seasoned at all, no salt and pepper. I ordered the rabbit with forest mushrooms, but the mushrooms were horrible, acide taste coming from a can probably. I usually eat everything cause I hate wasting food, but the mushrooms were really...bad. My friend had pork, again not seasoned, but the pumpkin purée and chestnuts were good. The wine was good and the waiter was very nice, hat off for him, old generation of waiters, which studied to be a waiter and knows how to smile and behave. Place is nice too, pity that the food was not as expected.More

We had made a booking, which was wise, as it was very busy. Given a lovely table, and the friendly owner talked us through the menu and wine list with lots of helpful advice. Of note was the venison special which hubby absolutely loved. We...had a bottle of local wine which was very good. This place is proudly Slovakian in its ambience, cuisine, wine and the background music; it all works brilliantly.More

We absolutely loved this restaurant. After a cold day exploring Devín Castle we came here in the evening before heading back to Vienna. The food and atmosphere was amazing, it was romantic, cosy and our waiter/the manager was so welcoming and friendly. I absolutely loved...the duck with potato pancakes and red cabbage - a perfect accompaniment. (Please keep this on menu always) My partner loved his wild boar and pumpkin dish and the Slovakian beer was great. I only wish we had had a second night to eat here again. Thank you for this wonderful experience.More

The BEST foie gras (from us who have traveled to 60+ countries), ever! Smooth and melting in the mouth (careful - it can be quite hot). We also enjoyed duck leg and stewed rabbit. Very interesting cave-like setting.
