The place is located directly on the main Zvolen's square, with a terrace in the back yard. Reaervation was possible, but not necessary. Inside was very warm, which forced us to leave earlier as planned, which is the only reason not to give perfect score....The crew was attentive, all ordered food was delicious, well presented.More

Excellent food! A very pleasant surprise, nice location and decoration, very good service and superb dishes, better than ones from famous restaurants in Western Europe. The dishes are made based on products from their own farm or from local sources, very tasty and fresh. Thanks...for the experience and good luck for the future!More

We discovered tips to check this restaurant here @TripAdvisor ... user reviews fully matched the reality - or better to say - the reality was even better than expected. We (as usual) took our preferred choice - hamburger. "Unfortunately" there were double burger only :-)))...and it was really double. Made medium as requested, perfect finetuned, full taste, ... go and try yourself. BTW, we returned next evening and enjoy the meal again the same perfect wayMore

We had lunch here after visiting Zvolen castle/galery. Lunch menu was quite limited to one soup, one starter and just two main dishes, one desert but quality and taste of the food was excellent. Service also very nice and friendly.

First dinner in Slovakia and we picked a good place. The menu was small but the food was awesome! We had the fish and the veal along with a soup, a salad, two beers, two desserts, and two espressos. All added up to 48 Euros....Wow! Could not have asked for a better meal after a long flight from the USA and a drive from Vienna. Nice place and friendly staff made us feel at home. Highly recommended.More

This is a real treat of a place and deserves its top spot. The food is fresh, locally grown and super tasty. They cater well for children - removing ingredients, adding rice instead of potatoes etc. The local wine recommended by the waiter was delicious....Most importantly, all the staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I wish we could visit again! We found the bill very reasonable for 4 people - 35 euros including a couple of glasses of wine. Definitely worth a visit.More

As it was rated to be the best place in Zvolen, we decided to eat there. However, you have to be quick to go there as the place closes at 21h on Friday evening... We took burgers, that were ok. Pricey place - with a...glass of wine it was more than 30Eur.More
