Visited this place as a couple. Restaurant looks authentic and nice. We had garlic soups with cheese, which were quite strange, no consistency with melted cheese floating around, but taste was ok. For seconds we had chicken and pork stakes, they were good, the best thing was a semi-mashed potato side dish, it was really great. Overall worth a visit.

Went to this place to have some real slovakian dining. It was all I expected. The house was nice, service perfect and the food was good. As a foreigner the waitress wasn't really sure that I would like the special slovakian food and drinks but it was perfect and interesting to try.

We came when almost nobody was there. Despite this fact we had to wait more than 1 hour to get food. We twice reminded staff ourselves. Chicken broth salty. Main dish relatively good but after one hour even did not have will to eat.

Wow... I love this places. ON our 2 days trip in Sv.Anton/B.Stiavnica we were here 2 times and the food was amazing. Well, the soup was not always hot, but it was tasty, prices are good and staff was friendly. No problems with ordering tap water - one extra star! I will definitely come back and maybe stay overnight too.... More

The selection of meals is pretty standard for the region, their preparation is very good in a traditional sense. I recommend you to try Erb for a more modern interpretation of most of the same recipes. I was missing a few classic desserts here though such as Parene Buchty or Knedliky. When we came, they were missing the best red... More

This is a great example of a local restaurant with tasty Slovak cuisine. We had duck with cabbage and loksa (salty pancake) with fat and goose liver and both dishes were delicious. We have had the opportunity to see through door to kitchen and saw that everything was home-made, no semi-finished products like in many restaurants. Staff was very friendly,... More
