Bratislava restaurant recommendation

On the way back we stopped for dinner at the Slovak Restaurant (Slovenská Restaurácia) on Hviezdoslavonvn nám a long shaded walking street that included the U.S. Embassy. At this restaurant, which offered a shaded porch on the nam, we encountered the most aggressive waiter we have ever met. But I will say his “suggestions” were right on the mark. I had Racia, a local speciality that the menu descripes as Sauted Filet of Beef and Pork with smoked Bacon, Onion, mixed Pepper, traditional served in Potatoe Pancake. It was wonderful and my wife had a Chicken with asparagus, tomato and mushrooms. All this was washed down with a wonderful Veltlinske white wine which I think was Slovakian but don’t know for sure because the bottle was never on our table. With desert the meal came to 1574 SK ($80) for two, which we thought a good deal for a meal of that quality.

    Thank you for posting!! Your thread is the only one that turned up when I typed in Bratislava. I will be making a day trip there in September with DH. We will take a bus in from Vienna. I will add Slovak Restaurant to our list of "to do's".
