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.

We have been to this bar three times. Never again. If you want ignorant, rude, unfriendly, impatient, intolerant and cold service, then this is the place for you. One member of staff had the temerity to say "I don't care, I've resigned anyway" when we...complained about their attitude. I would question the quality of the owners too if they have such a low benchmark for staff. We are staying at the adjacent Hotel Grand, and now we avoid this bar. Don't give this place your custom. Coffee may be good, but without good service the overall taste is very unpleasant. They deserve that. 35 minutes before closing they refuse to serve anyone. I wish there was a zero star rating.More

Nicely prepared coffee, cappuccino was with rich milk microfoam, balanced acidity and bitterness. Nice service, polite, friendly. For me good cup of cappuccino in the morning. Well situated near a square. Not too busy in the morning.

I’ve visited Zilina couple of times and I have never had an issue with smoke in a restaurant. When you enter the restaurant the smoke is so prominent, that you can’t concentrate on anything else, just to be able to inhale some air in. We...planed to stay for lunch, but could’t find any non-smoking area, so we’ve left.More

We are visiting this great restaurant several years and we are never disappointed. Food is allways great, coffe is excellent and the bar has a great atmosphere. There are two parts-for smokers is a bar and non-smoking restaurant.

Service was amazing waitresses were so...kind and smiling all the time. Also the prize for my breakfast and cafe was good. Only think what I really dont like and thats how i put just 4 stars is that poeple can smoke inside and if you want to enjoz your food is not so good.More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and honestly I didn't really believe as it doesn't look very tempting from outside. But I was nicely surprised. The modern interior, quiet atmosphere, friendly staff, fast service and excellent food - this all made me enjoy the...evening very much.More

Only went here for the coffee which is 9 grams coffee, one of the few cafes that have specialty coffee. The roasters are one of the top in Slovakia and have the best range of single origin beans in the country. We had a very...nice Kenyan in a Chemex which was prepared well. I always buy their beans online as I'm not from Zilina from coffeezone which is their website. They have an extensive range of coffee merchandise including espresso machines. Worth having a look if your'e into coffee.More

We went here for a nightcap and ended up in the middle of the nightlife. Nice bar and restaurant if you are able to get a table ;-)

We had lunch here today. The main courses were 2.5 times the prices we paid for lunch yesterday at a pub style restaurant nearby. This place is just off Marianske Namestie so we understand there may be a premium but then you expect quality. The...food was very poor. Three of us had pork schnitzel. It was terribly dry. Two of us had the roast duck with red cabbage. The duck was very dry too. We were expecting traditional Slovak roast duck: moist and crispy skinned. Instead it looked more like they had run to the Chinese restaurant at the other end of the square and picked it up there. It had a thick layer of fat; the sort of thing I expect to be served in Hong Kong not in Zilina. We ordered Tyrolean Dumplings as a side dish. They were so dry I couldn't swallow them. At the pub restaurant nearby bread dumplings and red cabbage (much tastier than here) were included with the duck for EUR4.20 .The duck with cabbage here was EUR10.70 Don't bother coming here.More

This cafe is one of the best cafes in Zilina. Their service is excellent and they make specialty coffee drinks. You can have your lunch in a freshly re-designed non-smoking hall.

Visited for lunch after making a mistake the day before visiting another local restaurant. This was far better - very tasty food, nice atmosphere, good drinks and friendly service. A good option for dining in Zilina.
