We just came got back from a visit to, Patronsky Pivovar. I had only heard of this place the day before, while perusing Google Earth, in the vicinity of, Horsky Park. Today, my wife and I were out and about, and happened to be passing by, when we saw a very inviting looking establishment, full of people sitting, eating and drinking, in the windows, as we drove by. We circled around, found a parking spot, and went in.
Upon entering, Patronsky Pivovar, there is a children's playground, and beer garden (nice picnic tables and umbrellas) and covered deck for outdoor eating. Inside there is a large non-smoking section in a glass enclosed porch. Though I didn't tour the entirety, there is at least one pool table in a side room.
We both ordered the garlic soup w/cheese (traditional recipe). For the main course, my wife ordered a pork dish w/saurkraut and potato dumplings, while I ordered the baby back ribs (bravcove rebeirka). The soup was right on target, hot and delicious, with melted cheese hiding in the bottom of the bowl (this is normal). My ribs were perfect, a full rack of perfectly done pork ribs served with two different dipping sauces. One sauce a creamy garlic sauce, which I only tasted, but didn't use. The other, a barbecue style sauce, which was rather good. For those customers from the US, looking for Texas/Tennessee style taste (i.e., smokey) you won't find it hear. It's a different kind of cooking, but nonetheless, fall-off-the-bone, delicious!
My wife liked her dish very much, and only remarked that the pork was slightly on the dry side, but later changed her mind when she tossed all the food together, which brought up some sauces/juices from the bottom of the plate, making for a more moist palate. She said that she would have no problem recommending her dish, too!
So, chalk up another HIT, at least with us, for a great Pivovar experience, just outside the Bratislava core limits. From city center (Kollarovo Nam., or Hodzovo Nam.) take trolleybus 207 to it's northwest terminus, Valašska. Patronsky Pivovar is right there!
