Exclusive hotel affiliated restaurant. Friendly staff, but the atmosphere is a bit posh and over the top. They clearly cater to a higher end market, but the food quality does not live up to expectations. We had a great veal dish which was as tender and juicy as you can get it, but we also had overcooked trout, bland dishes... More

Stayed in the hotel where this restaurant is located. Both hotel and restaurant are really good ones, though not cheap, but quite reasonable for the value you get. They have a good craft beer (bottled), tasty foie gras and a really delicious duck breast. Really enjoyed the meal there. Atmosphere is nice and cozy, would suit both for business dinner... More

Nice not to be over faced! Just the right portions, I have medallions of steak with rice, and it was perfectly cooked. The local wines are better than expected. Old fashioned service, they even open the door for you when you leave. Give it a go.

We have enjoyed a wonderful ten days at the Marrol's hotel enjoying breakfast and dinner most days during our stay. The staff are extremely attentive, the food and wine have never disappointed us and the extras we have requested have been satisfied with an enthusiastic willingness. Without question the best hotel and personal restaurant in Bratislava.

This is a top notch restaurant that deserves to be a lot busier than it generally is. It offers an excellent compromise between fine dining and classic European gastronomy. The food is excellent. We had the pike perch cheeks, rooster broth, deer loin ravioli, duck pate and we finished it off with the vanilla lasagna. The food was well executed... More

Decided to try the restaurant whilst staying at the wonderful Marrols hotel and we were not disappointed. We were served excellent food by Martina who recommended the best wine to go with each course and we had a fabulous meal. All waiters wore white gloves and Martina was so knowledgeable about every course she is an asset to the hotel... More
