“Great views of old town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

VIews are amazing and prices are higher for Bratislava but overall still cheaper than other cities in Western Europe.

You take the elevator to the Skybar which is on the 7th floor which has great scenic panoramic views of the old town with the castle within eyesight

This is place to go for panoramic old town city views while sipping cocktails,,,definitely walk to level above sky bar for "another view" of old town but the sky bar is good enough for a nice view and cocktail. Found drinks to be tasty and well made.

tip: make reservation for skybar (drinks only) via website or call as space is "limited" and they will turn you away at front without reservation however found this odd as when we made reservations and went up to skybar the bar area really was packed so feel they should allow more people but guess this management decision.

“A must go to place when its good weather!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Just stumbled across this place on a blazing hot day this last weekend. Took the lift to the Lemontree restaurant which is up on the 7th floor, with an option to continue up to the skybar which has brilliant panoramic views of the city with the castle being in the main eye line. Whilst the drinks and food are more expensive than the local areas, it's well worth it. The Thai food is just brilliant, and I could only be reminded of eating back in Thailand as I was comping down my Pad Thai, and to have a normal strength beer after all of the local stuff was actually very refreshing. When the sun is out, there are 2 terrace sections to sit out on, or there is the option to sit inside with a bit of shade whilst still having the views of the city. Have a visit if you need a change from the local food and drink.

“Disappointing service, rude waiters - dodgy characters late night”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Have been twice to lemon tree bar - views are amazing (but you could get better views if you went to UFO restaurant and 100x better service). We went here for drinks and the waiters were rude, unhelpful and rather arrogant. Brought the wrong drinks to us, when tried to change it they would not agree to it, (gin and tonic was delivered when a mojito was ordered). On the second time the table next to ours was essentially a what appeared as a bunch of call girls with a few men getting far to drunk at 10pm, smashing glasses, and going under the table (twice - not exactly sure why). Sleazy place, would avoid- better suggestions, drink by Kempinski/Sheraton (on the river), UFO hotel, local pubs.

“The sky bar is top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

They are very well assorted. Try White Russian with iced home made whipped cream or Hendricks Tonic served in Hendricks cups....you will love it if this is something you know from other bars. They take care of you and you'll have a nice time there at decent prices...

“I went for lunch: stick with the bar!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Great bar - that is obvious. I had lunch there and it was a treat. I had chicken curry soup with noodles (eu7.50); my friend had a spicey prawn soup. She liked hers, and it had one shrimp with head (so fresh) but the rest were not fresh. My soup had two - TWO! - pieces of chicken and they were both small. The noodles were partially sticking out of the bowl, and were still hard. Obviously dried (freeze dried?) noodles. So - though not BAD, certainly not a "great restaurant." But: the VIEW!! Fabulous just for that!

Stick with the bar!
