We use to visit at least twice a month. Today, it was disaster. Too long to be welcomed, too long to order, too long to be served, finally mistake and wrong drinks served. No apologies, only insisting i am served what i did order. Heard...from the table next door as waitress asked if they enjoyed and after their reply “not really” she responded: you are the first! Dear Bistro Chef, you might think you are the best restaurant around but you are very far from it!More

After our experience with Bistrochef, we definitely ate there for the last time. Service nice, but slow, the price of food absolutely did not match the quality. The staff had to be reminded that we had no cutlery on the table and therefore we had...nothing to eat. The waiting time for food was also above standard, as long as there were a minimum of guests in the restaurant. The second couple who was with us ordered a tartare, after which, as they informed us, they both vomited the next day. I ordered sweet potato chips to my burger, which they brought me when I had already eaten half of the burger, and it wasn't even sweet potatoes but usual. After being alerted to this problem, they brought sweet potatoes, when I had already said everything, that they were at the expense of the company, but they still included them when paying. We left the expected peaceful evening very disappointed…More

A very nice place with good and tasty food. The dessert was very interesting. Friendly and polite staff. We didn't have to wait too much for our food. Prices were also very fair.

Good choice of dishes, but their cheeseburger is a (our) favorite. Tasteful and good value for money. The service was a bit rushy, maybe they were a bit short in staff.

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
