Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

You can tell a restaurant the sets high standards. The owner Massimo was constantly on the move, in the kitchen, with the wait staff, at the register ensuring that high standards were being met. I had the calamari (Excellent) served o f fired seaweed, The...gnocchi, and the veal. I asked the waiter to suggest a wine and he brought a Toscano red that was spot on. If you are in Bratislava nd love good food, well served with everything your would expect from a five star restaurant, Put this place on the TOP of the list. I am surprised Michelin has not added this place to their list. It is a slight to a place like Massimo not to be accorded its due.More

All sites say they’re open till 10pm but when arriving around 915 the waiter said they’re closed, walked off and shrugged his shoulders. Location is nice and food looked okay despite being pricey… but never got to try it because the waiter rudely told me...they’re closed and walked off when I said they advertise 10pm. They were still taking food orders from others and taking food out the kitchen but his attitude totally put me off going back! There’s many other options.More

Nice restaurant with a view over Danube. We tried several dishes, including soup, pasta, steak and desserts. The food and service were not exceptional in general. The prices are higher than in similar restaurants in Bratislava.

Very good restaurant we chose for the business dinner. The menu doesn't offer very wide selection of dishes, but whatever we have had was really first class quality delicious. Don't skip appetizers! The service was also excellent, the waiter was a real pro. Good experience!

Pleasant find walking around by our hotel and chose to go here for dinner. Authentic enough Italian, being Italian myself, and being in Slovakia. Forgot what we ordered but all our food was delicious, the ambiance was great, the restaurant was clean and modern, and...the service was good despite a minimal difficulty in English. Would highly recommend and definitely return. One thing that did take me a back was that they had a big sticker on the front entrance that was anti-TripAdvisor? Why would a restaurant that anti-TripAdvisor be on TripAdvisor? It was the first time I had seen such a sticker.More

After lunch on Sunday July 7 we went with my husband for a walk along the Danube river and while passing Massimo Ristorante in the River Park we stopped by for a coffee and a dessert. It was approx. 2:45 p.m. and the restaurant was...almost empty. Only two tables were occupied. Waiter was standing at the outside porch/terrace. We wanted to sit down at one of the small outdoor coffee tables to have a coffee. We were told that the restaurant was open for guests who order lunch only and the waiter refused to bring us coffee ... We left disappointed and with bitter feelings... This was really unpleasant and rude especially because it was not a lunch time anymore, the restaurant was almost empty and we did not even want to sit at the table prepared for dining....there are separate small outside tables clearly for guests having just a drink.. Well, all I can say is that this restaurant looks nice from outside however the customer service is poor.More

Why is the best one? because is run by an Italian guy Massimo. He has fresh products and the location is amazing, as it is on the River Danube.

Great place to enjoy good food. Both meals, wine and the service was excellent. The atmosphere - simply great. Well, it comes with a price. And the price is, I would say, even more expensive than in Belgium. But it’s a great place to enjoy...life!More

One of the best restaurants in Europe! When we are traveling we always try the best restaurant that we can find in the city! We have been here for five times last year! We are very satisfied with the food that we get. Our favorite...is the escalope for start, the octopus for main course and the tiramisu for the end. We really recommend the place. For us it is more tasty than some two Michelin star restaurant, the ambience is great and the staff is very kind. We like that place and we come back every time when coming to Bratislava. We are happy that we can find people who do there’s job with passion and from there hart! Thank you!More
