We visited restaurant in January. The location is in the town centre, interior is nice and cosy. We had lunch- 'halusky' which was ok, but other food was far from tasty - when we take into account quiet high prices. I recommend this place for coffee stop :)

We cook only from high-quality raw materials and components that we eat ourselves and we dependend on the good quality and taste. Sometimes it happens that guests wait... More

Despite it being very late October we sat outside in the sunshine, which was delightful. Service was fine and the strapacka (sorry, that's the Hungarian name, potato pasta with sheep's cheese) with a nice piece of pork (called cutlet on the menu) was delish. Wanted to return on the Sat evening but it was full.

Interior design original with 2 lizards. Service friendly but a bit slow. But on holiday we have more time than money :) Food simple but quality.

We went to Banska Stiavnica for a couple of days to see the museums. Upon arrival, we saw this restaurant and thought how nice. We went in. Quite busy, the waitress looked like she's not keeping. Granted, since she was serving both the restaurant and the wine bar next door. We sat down at a table not cleaned with still... More

We were starving and it was late, we ordered 3 courses which were all served and eaten within an hour. Our waitress was a real sweetie, she spoke good English and was polite, friendly and very efficient. Nice meal, I'd recommend the goulash and dumplings if you're hungry

Restaurant offers a large menu but it was surprising that some of the foods were really delicious while another ones - e.g."zivanska" were heavy over-salted and too spicy. So rather, while ordering, ask the waiter for recommendation. Or chose another facility.

Finally, a great place to eat in Banska Stiavnica!! Service is a bit slow because they don't seem to staff enough servers for the volume or turn around. But the servers who are working, work hard, speak English well, and genuinely care whether you have a positive experience. The food is wonderful. Trout with lemon spinach - perfectly cooked. Sheep's... More

Terrace seating outside but sheltered from the direct sun. Chef specialties and a killer cream of porcini (cep) mushroom soup. When I eat at a restaurant for the first time, I always try to order french fries to compare. Matej has the best in town, better than the two other main competitors. Prices are high-ish but the service is attentive... More
