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.

Nice place to eat with draft tank pilsner urquell beer. We had cheeseburger served with fries and barbeque sauce, pork steak with fried potatoes and seasonal specialty pretzel with butter, as dessert we tried grilled pineapple. Everything was delicious, prices are good too.

Very good position, very good kitchen and service. Plenty of tables inside and outside. During autumn/winter season, overhead heaters are available. Serving typical Slovak food mixed with pub-like dishes (ribs, wings, hamburgers etc.). They serve beer and spirits as well. Never have I ever had...a bad food/experience there.More

Had the beef flank, BBQ wings and pistachio cheesecake. We ended up stuffed despite not planning to finish them since we are not big eaters. Great service, food, drinks and ambience. Remember to give the sloe brandy a try! Oh yes, there’s a kids corner...under a tree too.More

We were very nicely surprised to find out this restaurant had some great vegan options. It is hard to find dedicated vegan options in restaurants in Slovakia but Central got that sorted.

What a great experience! It’s a modern but cozy interior in heritage hotel with friendly staff and good quality product. I am a massive fan of tartare stake, it’s the best one I had so far. There is enough choices for everyone from starters, soups,...mains, desserts and kids menu. And what a nice and large selection of RUM. If you are heading that way, give it a shot for sure, you won’t be disappointed! They also have a beautiful coffee shop with homemade desserts right next door.. Enjoy!More

Enjoyed tasty cheese burger prepared swiftly with a excellent bottle of petit merle from Slovak producer Jozef Repa. If just the rookie waiter would bring the wine 🍷 prior the burger and not almost when I was done with it. 🤣

We had such a perfect experience at Stary Smakovec for the first time we've ever been there. The Place was recommended to us from our good friend and we were not disappointed. We had a few items out of the whole menu as tartar steak, duck risotto, soup of...the day , traditional Slovakian halusky and at the last place del;icious Pilsner Urquell from tank. All the food we had was excellent.  Portions are huge and the meal value is very reasonable considering we are in high Tatras my friends!  More

Stopped at the restaurant after visiting tricklandia and was expecting to find an overpriced and average place. Were we wrong. The waiters/waitresses were welcoming, the service fast and the food and drinks brilliant value. The do traditional food and well and burgers etc, and have...some items for those whom need gluten free food., but at a small extra cost. But food was very tasty and filled us up.More
