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.

Not far from the 'Man at Work' statue in Panska Street, you'll find this little treasure. A family run restaurant with exquisite Slovak dishes and a wonderful, helpful staff. Thank you, Da Da, for being so cheerful and courteous. You did a wonderful job of...looking after us, quickly sorting us out with a charger so we could give our mobile a boost while we eat our delicious meal. A long, draining day for the battery and we needed to be sure we'd have use of it later on return to Budapest. Wild boar and dumplings - not a combination we could ever get at home and a real taste of local cuisine. We very much appreciated your positive attitude , Da Da, and your ready willingness to ensure we had a good visit to this lovely restaursant. We enjoyed our trip to Bratislava a great deal and hope to return one day. If we do, we will certainly seek out Dalnozemska Krcma and hope to meet again.More

Great gastropub in the old town of Bratislava. We got steak tartare, smoked beef loin, chicken wings and a flank steak - perfectly cooked. Definitely try a palinka - quince was our favorite, and the unfiltered Staropramen topped up the meal. We’ll return.

We escaped from a downpour to take refuge in this restaurant and so it was filling up quickly with people who had the same idea. The staff coped admirably with what seemed to be an unexpected surge in orders and although advising us that the...likely wait for food would be 30 minutes, it actually arrived in 15. A traditional menu meant that as first time visitors to Bratislava we took a chance and ordered whatever sounded good. I had the slow cooked pork with pumpkin cream, which wasn't at all what I expected when it appeared but was nevertheless delicious. A really enjoyable experience, it didn't matter at all that the lights occasionally cut out and crashes from the kitchen caused one of the waiters to sprint back and forth as if he was in training for the Olympics - it all added to the ambiance! A special mention to waitress Dada who smiled throughout and provided very friendly service.More

We had dinner at this restaurant on a Friday night and, honestly, even though it was not crowded, the food was not as tasty as it should be. We are familiar with Slovak food (being one of us Slovak) and we found the halušky to...be kinda weird, with the bryndza tasting different and the mangalica bacon was fatty and dry. The bryndza soup was tasty. We understand that they probably are a restaurant aimed to tourists, but the overall quality didn't please us.More

The bone marrow and beef tartare was one of the best I've ever had of either, and they worked wonderfully together. Ask for some bread with it instead of the chips. Excellent!

I wanted some Slovak food but I decided not to use Tripadvisor but ask locals. Of half a dozen or so, no one would point to a Slovak restaurant. I can only speculate why. So Tripadvisor pointed me to this place. Staff attentive and forgiving...in that I don’t speak a word of Slovak. Soup starter (more of a bean stew). Think Fabada or Cassoulet and this soup could hold its own in that mix. Boar main course with inevitable dumplings was wonderful. What next? More dumplings, this time sweet and covered in poppy seeds with a plumb jam. The barmaid and waiter made me feel at home and guided me to some fantastic Slovak red, Sparkling Slovak mineral water and a lovely sweet Slovak white wine. No rush. Enjoyed every mouthful and every minute. Ďakujem!More
