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.

Poor quality beer in a place trying to be upmarket and living on it's historic place. It's expensive compared to other local bars by almost double the price.

An absolutely fantastic bar in Kosice, right in the centre on the main pedestrianised street. We loved this place for its outstanding beer / drinks menu, the staff who are brilliant and the food. The building itself inside is also beautiful. The staff who served...us were friendly, professional and efficient. The beers were awesome and the fried flatbread was awesome. If you're in town pay it a visit, it's a fantastic place. Thanks to all the staff.More

I been invited to this place by my friend. We wanted to drink and eat. But all we managed was to get 2 beers… As the waiter was way too busy serving all the other tables , with more people than we were . So...he did what he thought was the better for the business and didn’t care about our table at all after about 40 min he came to us and asked if we needed anything but at that point we decided to leave. Such a shame .. terrible management. Wouldn’t recommend it if you don’t gonna bring with you about 6+ people. 2 people for them make no differenceMore

Established in 1542 it is one of the oldest running hotels. Now a boutique brewery and is serving fabulous food. We had the Gnocchi with smoked pork knuckle and the gnocchi with sheep cheese. Both were equally delicious.

It was a great place, and lovely to sit and drink their delicious beer while the beer maker was opening, sniffing, and adding tings to the fermenting copper vats in the bar. They serve a great "beer tasting" with about 6 good six beers. We...did not eat, but the food we saw looked good. Everyone around us was having a good time.More

We stumbled upon the restaurant and chose to dine based on both reviews and the gimmick around the age of the establishment. This is a review of two parts - first the food - incredible! Without fault. Good portions, well cooked and clearly nice ingredients....I’d return for the food in a heartbeat. The second part was the service…. I hate to complain about the hospitality industry but being presented with unclean cutlery, which upon showing the waiter, was then scrutinised at the table by said waiter including a delightful bit of business with scratching at the blemish on the blade…. The wrong drinks order; apparent disbelief at our drinks order (and subsequently ignoring what we’d asked for) proved to be the way this was going…! For the food? I’d cross continents but for the service, I’d not cross a cycle lane.More

Bad weather and a desperate need for beer brought us there and it was definitely a good choice. While we expected the beer to be great, we were surprised by the quality of food. The best tatar in our lives!

Having checked Tripadvisor reviews of restaurants in Kosice while visiting the town, we went there for lunch and were not disappointed. We had fried cheese with chips and some drinks. All was good, although we expected some small side salad to accompany the meals. I...had a 2.2% Kyselac beer which was excellent. Coffee was good too. Overall, decent food and drinks. Service was fast. Very good value for money.More

The service and food not incredible, but was ok and reservation well handle. Waiter crashed a glass accidentaly...behind me (bad energy) and meat was not so fresh, but we enjoyed the beers!More

For me definitley one of the best ones in Kosice. Mainly due to fish and chips and the selection of beers. Always a great selection of beera on tap. Also the burgers are delicious too. Well done. Thumbs up

Went here during a business trip to the city. The restaurant is the oldest place in the country dating several hundreds years back. However their own crafted beer was good and tasty, we tried a few, and the standard blonde ale was our favorite. For...meals, I ordered the Fish & Chips and my colleague the ribs. We were both happy with the selection, the fish was fresh and the fries cooked nice and crispy, definitely among the better F&C I’ve had. My colleague also appreciated the tender and juicy ribs. Serving was nice and polite, so overall a good experience, which we can recommend.More
