When we (a party of 5) arrived, my friend went inside to order drinks and snacks - 2 portions of fries and 1 portion of onion rings while waiting for 2 more friends to join us. Got 3 portions of fries and 3 portions of...onion rings. Since the portions were small, we didn’t argue. Our friends arrived so I went inside to order main dishes. Since we wanted to split the bill, I also wanted to pay for 1 portion of fries and onion rings and the drinks we already got. The woman at the cash register did not speak english or russian, so another woman helped and translated to her exactly what I wanted. I do not speak slovak, but since it has some similarities with russian, after paying (from the receipt) I understood that the woman had taken money for sweet potato fries (3,20€) and not regular (2,50€), and also the main dishes were not in the receipt. I know that the other waiter told the cash register woman our order like 3 times, because she called the names of the dishes in slovak and also pointed at the foods in the menu. When I understood the error from the receipt (15-20 minutes later), I went inside to discuss this situation. They returned the price difference for the fries in cash, but did not give a discount for the main dishes like I asked considering I had to wait the 15-20 minutes because of their mistake. My friends also had a similar problem - not everything they ordered was in the receipt, so one of them got their food, but the other one had to go inside and order it again. The food that was not brought was baked cheese that had to come with side dishes and cost 7,90€. I have added a photo of the food we got. The other friends did have everything they ordered in the receipt, but did not get all the foods (a side dish of sweet potatoes), so had to go inside to argue about that too. The food was fine/good, but I would never recommend this place because of the terrible service.More

We visited this cool place with our 2 years old son and could not choose a better place to have lunch. The food was amazing, the service was very friendly and our son played whole time in their kids corner which offers different toys. My...husband loved the burger and the pastrami sandwich was exaclty what I needed to satisfy my taste buds. Our son was very happy with his soup and french fries, with rich portion of ketchup:) we highly recommend this place!More

If you are about to spend some time in the High Tatras, you should definitely include the visit of Iba.Tu Bistro to your plans. They got my heart with the yeast bread, which not only tastes exquisite but also it is made by a local...lady at her home, so it is literally Homemade <3 (+ supporting small local business)!!!! And as a real hipster, the best way you can try how amazing is this bread is avocado toast of course (+ looks good on Instagram :D). Also, a big plus is that they offer very tasty vegan alternatives, which is still very rare to find in that particular area. In my personal opinion, a bistro with great food for everybody, which supports small local businesses is always worth your support too.More

Hard to tell anything bad if the meal is so perfect :) We ate a "simple" hamburger and a pulled pork sandwich but they were one of the bests ever. Huge portion, perfect preparation, perfect tastes. Really good :) Price is as high as everywhere...else. The only small disappointment, that we were there at 18:20. Place was 30% occupied and we had to wait at least 20-25 minutes which seemed too long. Pity. But the place is highly recommended!!!More

Thank you. We are glad that you enjoyed the meal. To be honest 20 minutes is not that much, we are not fast-food restaurant. Maybe the chef was busy with some more complicated order. Sorry for that disappointment.

I read the other reviews and always find it hard to believe all at 5 ..but, having lived in SK for 10 years now, burgers are not done that often or that well. We loved it. Both had burgers, should have read the menu better,...they didn't come with chips .. my fault. The food was great and I thought a good price. Self service, fast and nice peopleMore

Great burger for average price and Cesar salad which was awesome! That's 5th place we tried in the town but right now the best. No traditional food though.
