We stopped for lunch. Has good variety of food and big meals for under 5 euros. Quality of food was good and service was quick. Hard to find as just a door on Main Street. Nice alternative for cheap local food compared to the surrounding restaurants.

This is a good-value place for beers and a simple but good value pub food. The staff are friendly and speak good English. It can get crowded so go early to ensure a table.

Always had a good experience, fair price and quality tasty food. It's not exactly fine dinning, but it's totally great combination of price/quality/service. Would definitela recommend for casual dinning

The café serves a daily menu of cheap main courses. It's an excellent value for money right next to the Opera!

We came here for Lunch & it had a couple of Vegan options on the menu. Not the best place I ate while in Bratislava, however it was really nice, really cheap. The meat eaters I was with loved it.

The restaurant is famous by the locals for a food that is prepared traditionally like your grandma would do it. Do not expect any fine dinning, but nice local food. (You need to know what to ask for).

I ordered off-menu for my 2 kids, asking the waiter if it was possible to simply get two small servings of plain rice and chicken (a staple Slovak dish) as there is no kids menu and nothing that otherwise appealed to them. The waiter (who honestly had already been rude to our friends and disinterested in actually doing his job)... More

The atmosphere is really interesting, some people are going to love and some are going to strange it. The food was really good for the price, specially the pancakes! I would recommend it as a nice option!
