Restaurants

From old-fashioned Slovak to ultra modern Thai, Bratislava’s eating scene is diverse and exciting – and atmospheric as most of the city centre eateries are tucked away in wonderful historic buildings on hidden side streets. On here we have a preference for the places we feel are distinctively, charismatically Slovakian – but not to fear, there’s a great mix of the modern with the traditional in the capital, and of the French/Italian/Asian with the Slovak staples!


Restaurants in Bratislava & Around

  • kolibaMUSIC AND LAUGHTER IN THE KOLIBAS

    If you ever decide to take tea in a koliba as eccentric as the one in Stara Lesna, take a fire extinguisher too. They spike your tea with a lethal dose of Slivovica and serve it in flames. It gives you a heartburn that can only be put out by a bottle of red wine while ...

  • ©www.englishmaninslovakia.co.ukFabrika

    Fabrika is one of the words Slovaks use to describe a factory, and it’s the first thing would-be drinkers should understand about Bratislava’s latest pivovar (brewpub). The industrial chic concept might have hit other parts of the globe but it never really took off before in the Slovak capital: until now… Fabrika, with its motif ...

  • ©www.englishmaninslovakia.co.ukBratislava’s Best Pivovar (Brewpub-Gastropub)

    This site does not usually seize on the obvious (recommending places people are more likely to know about anyway) but there is a way to subvert every trend (for example, writing about somewhere people are less likely to really know about because those people won’t be expecting me to write about anywhere people are likely to ...

  • Image by www.englishmaninslovakia.co.ukThe New Bistro St Germain

    Wifi: slow. My memories of the old St Germain are fond, I must say (even although the old location is now ancient, and the new one no longer quite so new). Previously tucked into a cosy little courtyard off bustling Obchodná, this dinky but dignified spot with its elegantly old-fashioned Frech decor, from the black-and white ...

  • Obývačka

    It’s a fairly simple, but mind-blowingly effective recipe. Take breakfast (three-cheese omelette, eggy bread or pancakes, perhaps, alongside one of Bratislava’s best possibilities for a good macchiato). Take lunch (maybe the Obývačka special, a tasting platter of aubergine dip, feta, olives, grilled courgette, shrimps and a dash of chilli). Take dinner (the chicken and mozerella ...

  • Verne

    It’s always the way, right? You come to a beautiful city centre, you see the key sights and then you build up a thirst – or even a hunger – for after all, being a tourist or a traveller or a wanderer or whatever word you choose to use for it is, sometimes, draining. And of course ...

  • Traja Mušketieri

    It had been a long time in coming. Circumstances had thwarted us from visiting Traja Mušketieri, Bratislava’s medieval-themed Slovak restaurant, on many an occasion. Now we were to be thwarted no more… although its location, on one of the elegant old back streets behind the Presidential palace, can be hard to find. As you descend into the ...

  • Bratislava Castle Restaurant

    Slovak cuisine tastebud-tickling time. And this, primarily, for those who have been asking me about classic places to eat really good Slovak food in Bratislava Old Town. On first examination, the question itself appears bizarre – what other kind of food would restaurants in the Slovak capital be serving up? Well, the current trend in the ...
