“The best value meal in Europe.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2011

Set back a little from the main square of Zvolen, this restaurant offers sophistcated food and service for an amazing price. For lunch we chose the 3-course set menu at 11.40 euros, so for English readers that's a superb lunch for a tenner. We ate outside on the terrace but everything looked and felt 5 star. The young staff were attentive, friendly and clearly very well trained. It was only part way through the meal that we were told the restaurant is owned by the town's catering school, and we were being looked after by its staff and students. The venison was cooked to perfection and the plum-based dessert delicious, but it was the brilliant starter of rabbit livers with roasted onions that will live long in the memory.
We booked for the evening and enjoyed it equally, this time sitting inside. My duck on a bed of mushrooms and barley was excellent and the local pinot noir was the perfect companion.
At both meals I felt I was enjoying specialities of the area served with style and sophistication. Zvolen's castle, central square and this restaurant are worth a long detour. i shall return.
