We enjoyed lovely typical Slovakian food and the kind service of the waiter. If possible, ask for a table with lake view. Beautiful!!

- We had typical Slovak food but with various modification, what was all met by waitress. - It felt fresh and tasty, i really liked halusky and pirohy - only garlic coup could have been more garlici..one minus - from far the best coffee in...Tatra, congrats - great selection of Slovak non mainstream beers - excellent view and location - very good decoration - super smiley and nice stuff, quick and interacting with kids - for me the best in Tatra, i recommend It is slightly more expensive on food than average, beer was pricey somehow, but it was worth every pennyMore

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

Classic Slovak restaurant with beautiful view and tasty traditional Slovak food! Halusky the “must try” also the local draft beer! Don’t miss this place if you are in the High Tatras!

I liked it so much there that after trying different restaurants I came back to "repair the damage" done by other restaurants. Great meals, great service, very nice place.

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
