I was skeptical when our hotel receptionist, Dusan, recommended a Camelot-themed restaurant in this eastern Slovakia city. Seemed like a kitschy, tourist trap on the lines of the Excalibur hotel in Las Vegas. This was far from the case when we found a vibrant patio of beer-drinking patrons and open-air grilling. The restaurant is tucked away downstairs, away from the Friday-night bustle outside. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked down a flight of stairs into the tastefully decorated restaurant (dark wooden tables and carefully place chain mail suits, amor and swords). We had the duck liver for an appetizer and the pork tenderloin with garlic sauce was hearty, tender and subtly flavored. Seriously one of the best meals I've had and I've had a lot of pork tenderloin, growing up with a mom from Slovakia. The roasted duck was delicious: crispy skin and luscious meat. I wasn't crazy about the red cabbage, as I like it a bit sweeter and the potato dumplings were a little too dense and moist. The chestnut parfait was brilliant. All in all, this made for a lovely first night in Kosice.
