We had ordered very simple meals and a few affiliates of this restaurant would have had the easy chance to prevent an object somewhat resembling a coal-dust-brick on a plate from coming on our table (s. picture): the chef (if there was any), the innkeeper (because he was around) and the waiter (who brought it). But everybody appeared to consider this as normal and nobody cared. I scratched off the black burnt cheese crust (as it tastes bitter and assumingly elicits cancer on the long run) and left it then reproachfully in a fine geometrical order on my finished plate. It was taken away without comment and we payed without a comment, left without comment and here we are...with a comment. Why not comment directly in the restaurant? The innkeeper and the waiter were somewhat slow, but polite enough: Because the burnt food was SO obvious that WE did not want to deliver such a basic insight to a restaurant.

A lovely little place just around the corner from Michael's Gate. Don't be put off by the fact you have to go through a few doors and passageways from the street to get to the restaurant itself. The menu is diverse and the two meals we had were well done (Salmon Tagliatelli and Halusky) and pretty cheap (14 euros for both). It was nice atmosphere out in the garden seating area as well.

Nice atmosphere, delicious food and reasonable prices. I advice chicken breast with Jose sauce, little hot and so good. Did not like the brownie on the other hand. I recommend this restaurant in Bratislava.

I have eaten at Prasna Basta 3 times (twice in winter, once in summer) while on a business trip in Bratislava. The environment is quaint and nice both inside & outside on the terrace. The food is very delicious and affordable. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. You should make a reservation because they fill up during peak times.

Nice location. Very intimate. Probably worth a visit for a beer, while relaxing at the end of the afternoon, although I woudn't suggest it for dining.
Our food, although well presented, was below the expectations. The veal was tough and the mushroom cream insipid. The trout was well cooked, but too much combined with many other ingredients.
The wine was terrible.
Waitress was really kind, but it seemed she was passing there by chance, with a limited knowledge of the menu, especially regarding the wines list
