Description: Restaurant Houdini, which is part of the hotel, offers its hospitality to visitors in search of culinary values. This restaurant's menu, marked by the style of the young and creative chef, Michal Škrabák, reflects the influence of European cuisines. Houdini gradually focuses on Slovak and Central European meals and original recipes made from ingredients of the season. Meals are prepared not only with the passion of a man passionate about his profession, with respect for the gifts of nature, but also through the use of modern food processing technology (sous vide), which brings new surprising tastes and flavors and enables their preservation and underlines their taste and nutritional qualities Free parking in garage of hotel Marrol's for restaurants guests.

I had the back of suckling pig and my wife had the lamb cutlets. It was so good that we went back again. The dishes are creative and very well presented - the service and surroundings made this feel like a Michelin experience without paying through the nose (although it is on the expensive side for Slovakia). Having said that, if you're prepared to pay a little extra and know that you'll get quality, then this is the place for you. We also received 30% off our final bill because we were residents of Marrol's Boutique Hotel, which is where this restaurant is based.

We were staying at the lovely Marrol's and went to dinner here and were very pleased with the meal and service. The food was well-prepared, both in taste and appearance on the plate. We enjoyed the flavors and found it to be excellent.

Had the guniea fowl. Must say it was done very well. Staying at the hotel, I used a coupon they gave me for a 30% discount. I'd say that was a good deal, but I propbalby wouldn't go backwithout the coupon. It's just a little higher pricie than places of smiliar quality in Bratislava.

The restaurant itself is nicely decorated, the staff is well trained, but the food for that price was hugely overpriced, meal presentation was also rather poor. We chose the tasting menu, it was not any special. It lacked taste and variety. One course tasted as the other.

Suspect that the best restaurants in Bratislava are attached to the better hotels. Messina restaurant is within Marrols Hotel and was a good if pricey choice for dinner. Certainly much better than the no. 1 rated restaurant on Trip Advisor.
