I ate at L'Olive on Tuesday evening, it is set in the beautiful Arcadia hotel in the heart of the old town.

In writing my reviews of Bratislava, I was in two minds as to whether to give it 4 or 5 stars, 4.5 stars would be the most appropriate score if it was available. My dilemma was that the food and service here are both excellent, which you would expect.

I had the duck breast, pancake and red cabbage main course which was very well presented and flavoursome, probably just shy of 1* michelin status if compared to London restaurants. But certainly on par with a Clos Meggoire type standard. On this basis alone the restauant would have got 4 stars.

However, I had the chocolate surprise dessert which turned out indeed as a surprise as possibly the best dessert I have ever tasted, beating desserts I have had in La Gavroche and Hospital Road.

The place is a little gem and a bill that came out at €70 made it fantastic value. If you are in Bratislava for 1 night go to Messina as its slightly better overall, but if you in town for 2 night make sure you grab a reservation here!

I came in town for business with 5 of my colleagues, most of which preferred an upscale hotel with more history and elegance to it than a higher class hotel chain. We ended up dining here out of convenience but only after we received numerous recommendations from our local business acquaintances. That had a wonderful assortment of classic CEE dishes but also dishes for the less adventuress. Wonderful wine selection as well.

I recently traveled to Slovakia with a group of Chinese business people and we went to the Arcadia Hotel in the centre of the old town, just a few minutes walk from the Hlavne Namestie.

We had a superb dinner at L'Olive restaurant and even they, who are mostly used to Chinese and Asian food, were impressed. The food was excellent, combining traditional Slovak dishes such as the roast duck we ordered that was served with a new, more modern twist, on a bed of marron puree. We also enjoyed a creative desert, thin pancakes with generous addition of chocholate sauce.

The sommelier made a great job at pairing dishes with Slovak wines as we wanted to discover local wines. Service was impeccable and, as a whole, it was a great dinning experience. We were told when we left that L'Olive actually got an award as the best restaurant in the city and I will not hesitate to bring guests and visitors again in the future.
