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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Rating 4.5 is too far from reality. Unpleasant atmosphere, no one smiles, average food. I do not recommend and I will not come.

Although we had a reservation, they kept us waiting 5 minutes on arrival, even though the restaurant was half empty. All the waitresses and waiters were still running, looking restless and not creating a good atmosphere. Upon arrival, we waited until we received at least...a menu. We didn't feel well and just waited for it all to end. The food was no more than average. The sausage board contained only unripe dried ham, unripe bacon and unripe sausage, so nothing good. The pork knee was unbaked well, firm but dry. The deer steak was well baked, but the berry and chocolate sauce was so pronounced that it overcame the taste of the meat many times over. The restaurant looks pretty nice, but I wouldn't find a reason to come here again. I když jsme měli rezervaci, nechali nás při příchodu 5 minut čekat, přestože byla restaurace poloprázdná. Všechny servírky a číšníci stále běhali, působili neklidně a nevytvářeli dobrou atmosféru. Po příchodu jsme čekali, než dostaneme alespoň jídelní lístek. Necítili jsme se dobře a jen jsme čekali, až to vše skončí. Jídlo bylo ne více než průměrné. Prkénko s uzeninami obsahovalo pouze nevyzrálou sušenou šunku, nevyzrálou slaninu a nevyzrálou klobásu, tedy nic dobrého. Vepřové koleno bylo nedopečené, tuhé, ale suché. Jelení steak byl dobře upečený, ale omáčka z lesních plodů a čokolády byla natolik výrazná, že mnohonásobně přebila chuť masa. Restaurace vypadá celkem pěkně, ale nenašel bych důvod sem jít znova.More

Came here after hiking in the Tatras. We were seated quickly without reservation. The restaurant is super cozy. The plating was wonderful and the food was great. Portions are large but not overwhelming. Couldn’t recommend it more!

As a background, we arrived at 9pm and they announced from the beginning that the kitchen would close at 9:30. Order fast! - Hostile welcome: no English nor Hungarian speaking, only Polish, Russian or Slovak. Agressive attitude without even a smile. - Cleanliness: there were...a lot a tables available, they invited us to seat at a dirty one and they refused to wipe it - Service: the waitress was impatient to take our order. She left, never came back nor did her colleagues Eventually, we left without eating. A pity, since our previous experiences were more satisfactory. Luckily we were nicely welcome in a nearby restaurant, and enjoyed very good local food as well.More
