It is an interesting place right in the downtown. Service is very friendly and helpful. But the sushi is really far from you will expect. Not proper ingredients and soda sauce was too salty. Also risotto was not properly cooked.

Cozy place luring you in with a smell of fresh coffee, the place where happy people meet. In the day time - perfect place to have a lovely cup of coffee, in the night time - cool place to hang out with your friends, to enjoy a local´s concert. Magical atmosphere that will grab you!
This funky little bar has well priced wine and beer and is cosy and pleasant. Has live music in the evening some Friday and Saturday nights.

Art Cafe - a favorite hangout both for locals and tourist - is well known for its authentic "Stiavnica" relaxed atmosphere, good coffee, staging Concerts and art Exhibitions.
We happened to find this place on a Saturday night craving some late snack and a drink. Art Café was so much more than that.
The bartenders magiced lovely panini out of nowhere even at the late hour when we arrived. The place was all dancing by about ten at night to a catchy mix of contemporary music and some dance classics.
There was a great mix of locals and tourists and a lot of entertaining conversations to be had over the very customer friendly priced drinks.

I had the pork with marjoram sauce and rosemary potatoes and spouse had salmon salad with egg. Both were delicious.

Pension and restaurant on the hill overlooking the historical centre offers daily menu and Slovak culinary specialties. With indoor and outdoor children playground.
Situated behind the local football stadium, the place is bit difficult to spot. Especially on a rainy evening.
We almost gave up but luckily there were two young boys whom were very kind, willing to lead us, following their car, from the city center all the way to the place.
Make sure you use the exact address on your navigation device.
Other than that, very nice place, with quite some nice view, and excellent food. Prices are more than reasonable for full diner.

Traveling from America to visit our cousins who recommended the eatery as it was just a short walk from our hotel. We were a little leery about ordering pizza but were pleasantly surprised at the order we received. It was prepared perfectly and was delivered promptly. The beer was cold, the service was both prompt and courteous and our server spoke fluent English. First time we'd ever had corn on a pizza and it was wonderful. The price was very reasonable. Go ahead and give them a try, you won't be disappointed.
