Went to this pub to try their craft beer in the afternoon and was impressed with them. Ended doing back again for dinner and some more beers. Excellent service and the price was good.

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

This was plan B for us after not being welcomed at Med Malina. Very happy about the experience! House beer was great, aged beef steak cooked to perfection! Service impeccable. Highly recommend!

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

Used to be good, but the prices of the food have greatly increased while the size of portions and quality of food have decreased. The fish in the 'fish n chips' was half fish half batter, the bean salad was a bit boring, everyone's chips...were shrunken and cold. Still, the beers are good and we had very friendly service. We'll be giving them another chance for food, but only one.More

Had there a teambuilding for 7 people. Booked a outside space in advance to ensure we have space. Restaurant is opening in Summer after 4PM ! which is a nonsense but saw this on several others. The beer offer is excellent, homebrew the food offer...is a standard for this sort of restaurant. variety was good , well prepared...I had ribs and was bit dissapointed for the missing dips and vegetable selectionMore

It was packed outside, so we went inside where it was totally empty. Later on, extremely loud group of czech tourists visited and we decided to move on. Of course that was not fault of the brewery, which is by the way one of oldest...pubs in Slovakia. In the meantime I tried pork cheeks. Those were extraordinarily tender. I tried local beers as well, however almost all were very fruity, which I did not appreciate that much. I like IPA style of beer, but those were way too crazy IPAs... . Staff was very responsive until the group of tourists came. Since then, the young man did not show at our table with such frequency as before. 😊 we decided to leave because of the noise anywayMore

Hostinec is a great place for drinks only, lunch or diner! Inside the pub you can witness the brew process! We had a great lunch and started with a beer taster round. The waitress was very friendly and kind. You should visit the place when...you are in Kosice.More

Our last evening in Kosice and we came here for something different. The welcome was good, the food was good and we were looking for Slovak food and the beer was good too. We had a an evening that ended with two Slovak digestifs, Demankova...- both plain and cranberry and a new one for us - Bentianna with honey but not sickly sweet. If you want something different, try here but if you want international food perhaps not!More
