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.

This is one of the best fine dining restaurants in Bratislava. We had a delightful experience at this restaurant. The food was outstanding. We took the bouillabaisse and grilled octopus - as starters and aged rib eye and NY strip - as main courses. The...quality was exceptional and it was cooked to perfection. Yurii's professional service added a special touch to the overall enjoyment. I would highly recommend this restaurantMore

This spot is absolutely amazing, from interior to food, but what was really exceptional and stood out was the service. We were serviced by Renaldo, he was extremely helpful with food selection, presented the food professionaly and helped with everything we needed and made it...happen. Probably one of the best restaurants we've been to..defenitely recommend 🙌🏼More

Awful. Slow service. Cocktails are tiny and full of ice, no liquor. Soup was good. Got shrimp pasta. A giant bowl of noodles and four shrimp. No sauce, no veggies. Just cheap noodles and four shrimp. I complained. The manager came and said it was...80 grams of shrimp- 2 ounces! He said for an extra charge he d give me three more shrimp. Slow, poor customer service. Overpriced Don’t go. Many better optionsMore

Incredible restaurant and one of the best steaks I can recall. The vibe is sophisticated and modern, with the DJ on a Saturday night providing the perfect tech-house atmosphere. The member of waiting staff I had was brilliant, recommending both food and drink options, all...of which were spot on! Prior to the starter some warm bread was served, which was totally delicious, but as a result the actual starter of octopus was served perhaps a little too quickly. Saying that though it was a good portion size and really tasty; a great start to the experience. My main was filet steak with truffle fries and vegetables as the side. Cooked medium rare the steak was perfect, presented well and genuinely one of the best I’ve ever had. The portion of fries and veg was great and equally impressive in terms of flavour. There was no need for desert but I really want to return and can only therefore highly recommend. It’s obviously not a cheap option in the city but totally worth it both for the service, atmosphere and food itself.More

Very dark, behaves like a restaurant warranting large price tags but doesn’t deliver. Food was average at best, service was disappointing, no spoon for my soup. No bread on the table, sea food soup had one prawn and two overcooked muscles in it. Burgers were...over seasoned ( very salty), and my husbands burger was drowned in sauce, literally exploded everywhere. I would have been happy with a burger like this in a pub or cafe but not in a place that charges £20 for a burger!!More

This is one of the best steak houses in Bratislava. I like the touch with the sizzling hot lava rock, but prefer the chef-made versions. Good argentinian wines, nice service and all around the items on the menu are prepared well.

As a restaurant- too dark, too noisy with background music, and the food was particularly disappointing for the price - dry, overcooked and over seasoned.

Very nice lounge-like atmosphere, discreet and professional service, nice interior. The setting has its special vibe, definitely! I was recommended by the waiter to pick risotto, and since i am quite a fan of risottos, i must say, that was an exquisite dish. Very delicios....Stylish place and great food to taste! Very much recommended.More
