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.

Quite poor and unfriendly service. The food was OK, but nothing special and quite overprice for the level of service. The decoration is nice and has very local touch. The location is very convenient close to the lake.

For an excellent local meal or great steaks this wooden restaurant with its lake views is the place to eat in Strbske Pleso. We had really good food, including local specials like the venison goulash and fresh trout, reasonably priced drinks and live music from...traditional musicians on one night (we dined here three times). Staff are friendly and the experience is very atmospheric. Recommended.More

Добрий день. Ресторан не надто вразив. Надворі всі столики були зайняті. Довелося сісти всередині. Повітря всередині це все запахи кухні. Зробили дівчині-офіціанту замовлення, до речі, немає меню ні російською, тільки словацькою, вона прийняла замовлення, але не виконала. Філе форелі замовили дві порції, дали одну, замовили...хліб, його взагалі не дали, а в рахунок включили. Порція філе форелі та овочами гриль велика та смачна. Штрудель довго чекали, порція велика, сильно солодкий, багато родзинок, кориці. Кава добра. Знижую оцінку обслуговування. Добрий день. Ресторан не надто вразив. Надворі всі столики були зайняті.

Ціни високі. Good afternoon. The restaurant was not particularly impressive. All the tables outside were occupied. I had to sit inside. The air inside is all the smells of the kitchen. We made an order for the waiter girl, by the way, there is no menu in Russian, only in Slovak, she accepted the order, but did not fulfill it. Trout fillet ordered 2 servings, they gave one, ordered bread, they didn’t give it at all, but included it in the bill. Portion of trout fillet and grilled vegetables is large and tasty. They waited a long time for the strudel, the portion is large, very sweet, a lot of raisins, cinnamon. The coffee is good. I'm lowering my rating for service. A Russian-speaking waiter, who was not very restrained, counted on us, pushed us a little and did not allow us to fully understand the check and translate it. I recommend the institution, but check the receipt before you pay. The prices are high. .More

Beautiful restaurant by the lake. Great atmosphere, with a live folk band playing. Delicious food, and wide choice of drinks. Be sure to make a reservation, it gets full quickly.

The location and the building is fabolous. Staff is also nice (although they struggle with English). This is everything I can mention as positives. The food is the worst I've ever tried. I'm sure you have a friend or relative who can not cook at...all and you are praying not to be invited by her/him. Well, this food is even worse. I ate the goulash, and there is nothing positive I could mention. Nada. It was so chewy that I could barely eat it, it had no taste. The cook really should feel ashamed serving something like this. And this is coming from someone who had hiked the whole day in the mountains and was hungry like a wolf. Considering all of that, maybe it is a positive that the portion was ridiculously small. Prices are also high. The next day I ate the same food in a different restaurant. It was extremely good, twice the size and even cheaper, lol. It could have been a delightful place, such a waste.More

We decided to visit this place on the last day of out vacation. We came at around 19:15 on Saturday. One reservation got cancelled so we got a romantic spot near the window with the view on the mountains. The service was fast. The portions...were great. I was surprised that the food was an appetizer in itself, as I longed for a desert I rarely order at dinner. We were satisfied with all our choices. In the background life music with violin, contra-bass and an accordion was playing traditional but also cover versions of modern songs. All in all it was a perfect finish of a great week in this beautiful spot in Slovakia.More

The surroundings are amazing - beautiful nature with a big lake and stunning mountains. The architecture of the restaurant is beautiful, and really gives you the impression of a real lake house. Therefore, the atmosphere indoor could really use a boost to reflect the outdoor....The food is good and the prices are fair. We were placed in an unlogical seating for a couple and the waiter forgot about us, so we had to approach the staff at the bar. Simply, the place could use some "warmth".More

I went this place with my boyfriend who is Turkish and this is his first trip to Slovakia. Based on reviews from internet and my friends, we decided to have lunch here. I have to say this was one of the best gastronomy experiences i...have ever had in Slovakia. Great atmosphere, traditional slovak music, interior design and decorations as well as waiters had traditional clothes. The food was amazing! Yes, it is little bit expensive, not something i am able to repeat every day, but it was worth it. We started with creamy garlic soup that was really tasty. Afterwards I ordered baked potato with bryndza and bacon and garlic dip. My boyfriend picked deer goulash with potatoes, onion and veggie. He claimed this was the best food he has tried in this country so far. Service was nice and fast. Definitely recommend to visit if you travel to High Tatras.More
