We visited the restaurant specially for its stunning reviews on TripAdvisor, though were bitterly disappointed. The food was utmost mediocre (steak was very greasy, beans had nasty aftertaste and the salad was dry and without any taste), though the staff was pleasant.

Very nice restaurant which we were recommended to visit, food was delicious and very tasty. I ordered cheeseburger which was great but the fries were not hand cut which is a bit pity, it would add so much value to the dish. The second dish...we ordered was a combo of steak, ribs and wings - all delicious. Very friendly and nice staff, we will return for sure:)More

We really enjoyed our stay at this resteraunt. The food was awesome and was served in 15 minutes. At this place i’ve had the best beer in my life. The staff was friendly and was very happy when I asked about the taste and origin...of the beer. They’re clearly beer specialists ;). The restaurant looks great overall.More

Very nice place in High Tatras to eat - good food, reasonable prices, nice selection (also for vegeterians). If you have small kids, book table next to the kids corner. The service is also very good.
