“Good food & nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

My wife and I arrived late (22:30) in Strbske Pleso and the only restaurant still open we could find was Furkotka. The restaurant has a nice decor and feels comfortable.
I've ordered a beef steak with roasted vegetables and my wife had a bean soup. The food was freshly made and tasty. The red wine I had with the steak was great.
The service was ok, polite but a bit slow. All in all I could recommend this place to anyone. Great value for money and available even late at night.

“very nice place - good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

We had lunch which was very tasty and fresh. The staff was kind and helpful. But the main goal was the place - it was amazing = very nice decor and stylish.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

We came late a friday night. Staff was kind and here to take our orders but food was too cooked as it looked they were in a hurry to serve us in a way to close.....Bit disappointed for touristic area which leaves almost through week-ends.....

“Amazing quality/value - velmi dobra restauracia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

in English:
This restaurant was just amazing. Being a chef in London, I know what I am writing about. So, the food was freshly made, nicely presented, good balance of flavours and the menu with reasonable selection of options. People were nice and polite. Mulled wine was amazing, not a cheap blend, but a real mulled wine as I am used to in London. Portions were good, but not massives, so there is no any waste after you finish the food. The restaurant deco was very retro style, old machines, coffee mills or old lamps. Price wise, two adults can eat for 15 euros each. I really enjoyed it in Furkotka, and I highly recommend it to those, who appreciate an honest work of a chef. This is the place to go folks.

in Slovak:
V restauracii je uplne super atmosfera retro stylu, stare pisacie stroje, mlynceky na kavu a pekne kresla. Ako kuchar v Londyne rozoznam kvalitu, bol som milo prekvapeny ked mi doniesli cerstve jedlo, krasnu brokolicu ci salat. Kacka bola krasne opecena, medova omacka super dochutena. Varene vino bolo perfektne, klinceky, skorica, no uplne super. Porcie boli dostatocne, presne vedia, kolko turista zvladne, ziaden odpad na taniery. Citil som sa skvele. Cenovo som zaplatil 30 eur za dve dospele osoby, co je 15 eur na osobu. Avsak, porcia, cerstve jedlo a zamestnanci si to urcite zasluzia. Je to poctiva robota, ktoru vidno. Rad by som odporucil restauraciu Furkotka pre vsetkych ludi, ktori si potrpia na kvalite, prezentacii a atmosfere. Niekto tu pisal, ze porcie su velke - ano, su, lenze tretina taniera je salat, co je zdrave, lepsie je zjest viac salatu ako menej. To niektorym ludom urobi dojem, ze tanier je velky. Zelam restauracii dobru buducnost.
