This restaurant was labeled as the "oldest restaurant in Bratislava" as it sits on a hill on your way up to the Castle. It has three seating sections, I sat at a table down on the lower level in what felt to be the basement, almost like a cave. I was dining alone and was hoping to have some internet... More

We arrived after quite a steep climb up towards the castle, only to find the restaurant full! Not to be put off, we made a reservation for a couple of nights later, and I'm so glad we did. The ambience is very nice with an extensive choice of food and some excellent local wines. We opted for the duck and... More

Cosy restaurant near the Castle with traditional Slovak food. The pork chop with mustard sauce and backed potatoes was very good.

The restaurant is half way to the castle. In old building. Very nice atmosphere. The staff is very polite. The restaurant is decorated in old style. Food is great. Little expensive, above the average in Bratislava. But it is worth it. We recommend it.

Randomly stumbled across this restaurant by walking down from the castle heading towards the bridge. The 'hot wine' and 'oldest restaurant in Bratislava' caught our eye. Came in and greeted by lovely staff and we were seated in an area to what looked liked a bunker decorated with lights. The menu had traditional bratislavan food and it was a shame... More

Booked ahead from the uk. The setting on the walk up to the castle is impressive and once inside it feels cozy and welcoming. The service was excellent and the food, I had the venison and some excellent local wine, matched the occasion. Great start to a short trip to Bratislava
