This restaurant is simply a delightful experience waiting for you. The staff is friendly and helpful and the prices are fair. But the food? Amazing.

Go here for dinner, order the wild boar and have the Janousek Zweigeltrebe 2011 wine. The beef cheeks were also very good. But the wild boar was pork cooked to perfection!

The wine was rich yet tannic enough to border on dry and avoided being sweet. I would happily buy it for nice dinners.

Don't be put off if it seems quiet, it was almost empty when we ate there. And don't be surprised if the head waiter teases you a little or makes jokes, it is meant in a friendly way.

At the conclusion, we were offered a brandy -- for free if we could identify the fruit. Ours was Quince.

We stopped in here for dinner twice as the first visit was so good. Great location; below the castle tucked away from the tourist groups. Nice setting in-side with a few different rooms and the cave area as well there is an outside patio. Nice menu ... we started with the smoked duck and daily soup both good ... and for dinner, the venison steak with apple "purse" crepe with is absolutely amazing and the reason we went twice. We also tried drinks before dinner .. bentianna .. very good, we recommend trying it.
Overall, very friendly service, great meal ... we would recommend this place.
Total dinner for 2 people - appetizers, dinners, shared desert and a few round of drinks was $77E

The ambience looked inviting and we booked for dinner. The restaurant was empty when we arrived and there was still empty tables when we left. The pate for starter was average. The meat was extremely tough and the fish tasteless.
The worsed place we ate while in bratislava

This is by far our favorite restaurant in Bratislava. We have been coming back every chance we get. The food is excellent, the service is above average for Slovak restaurant. Definitely the place to check out when visit Bratislava.

After seeing the Trip Advisor reviews, I decided to go for dinner with a friend on my first night in Bratislava. I had been to Bratislava before and I must say that this is one of the best restaurants in town and reflects its reviews. Food,service, and ambience are good and its also good value for money. My friend shared my views and decided to return back!
