It’s overlooked by many – but wrongly. West Slovakia has great wine and spa towns that have cultivated a trend of good restaurants and cafes: Bratislava folks flock out into this region at weekends to one of the countryside eateries up in the hills in this region, which gives diners satisfying rusticity but also a lot of high quality which thins out slightly further east. Also, in and around the main culinary towns of Modra, Trnava, Piestany and Nitra – all proudly independent of Bratislava – are some great eating possibilities which indeed rival Bratislava’s best.
