One of the biggest restaurants in Bratislava which has its own bio farm as well. Slovak Pub is usually packed, as many students often visit it for its affordable prices, especially in the evenings. It is THE place where you want to try all the traditional Slovak stuff. Very similar meals like in the Flag Ship restaurant as they both have the same owner.
This pub is situated at Obchodná Street which is quite the center already. It is a longer street with a tram line in the middle, packed with shops, restaurants and cafes. Look for the McDonald’s sign – Slovak pub is just next to it :)
Portraits of national patriots hanging on the walls, a stove or a huge fireplace, and wooden-furnished rooms. You can find the statue of Juraj Janosik (Slovak Robin Hood) here, too :)
There are daily newspapers spread on the tables. The perfect choice to soak in atmosphere of the old traditional Slovak inn.
WHAT TO HAVE IN THE SLOVAK PUB?
Slovak Pub is THE place where you want to try all the traditional Slovak stuff. Have Kofola to drink first – which is the Slovak version of Coca-Cola, just a bit sweeter with some additional ginger taste. Our favourite drink to refresh ourselves in the hot summer! If you are a beer lover, have something „capovane“ which means tapped – the Slovak beer you should try is called Zlaty bazant.
This is the only restaurant we go to when we want to have a really amazing garlic soup. We know it might sound weird – why would somebody want to eat garlic, right? Well let us tell you something. You almost don’t feel the garlic taste in it (neither after you have eaten it) because they make it so creamy and with sooooo much cheese! The best part is that they serve it in a bread loaf so you can basically eat your whole „plate“ :) We have friends who request us to take them to this specific pub when they visit us, just to have the soup again! Trust us – once you try it, you’ll fall in love :)
What you need to have next is bryndzove halusky – potato gnocchi with sheep cheese and bacon. Or have a big plate with the selection of the best Slovak dishes :) That includes the mentioned cheese gnocchi, cabbage gnocchi with bacon and meet pies with sour cream.
Meat fans will be happy to have a wide selection of meals as well :)
If you like sweet meals, you need to try the dumplings with jam and cocoa (parene buchty)! After the meal you should definitely have a shot of our traditional spirits. Slivovica (plum taste) and hruskovica (pear taste) are the favorites ones, there are however more fruit tastes if you have other preferences.
Dobru chut! (means bon appetite) :)
