Best Restaurants in Bratislava Slovakia

Traditional Food

Slovak Pub – The most popular restaurant in Bratislava for traditional Slovak food. Slovak Pub is located in the heart of the city and is famous for its unique interior and garlic soup.

FlagShip – Similar to Slovak Pub as it shares the same owner, but is slightly different in style and variety. Much like its sister restaurant, it has a unique interior as it’s located in an old ornate theater. Flagship is known for its halušky, sweet dumplings, and house-brewed beers.

Zylinder – Another great option for traditional food in Bratislava with an emphasis on Austrian-Hungarian empire-inspired dishes.


Rannô Ptáča – A way underrated breakfast spot in Bratislava. This was some of the best breakfast I’ve had in Europe. It reminded me of a classic American breakfast back home.

Bratislava is the gorgeous capital city of Slovakia. It sets along the Danube River between the borders of Austria and Hungary. The famous Old Town is filled with adorable coffee shops and bars. Bratislava is definitely worth a visit!

When to Visit Bratislava

Fall and Spring are the best time of year to visit. During these seasons, Bratislava’s temperature is comfortable and it’s not as crowded as summertime.

How Long to Stay

Bratislava is very small, and you can see everything in one day. However, I recommend staying 2-3 days to really soak in everything the city has to offer.

What to Wear

Dressing for Bratislava is easy! A maxi dress with fall tones would be perfect to match the cobblestone streets and historic architecture.

Be sure to bring a good pair of sneakers for hikes and walking tours.
