The duck pancakes are amazingly delicious, give them a try because if you’re in Bratislava then you have to stop here! Friendly staff and good service on offer too!

It was our second time there, we came for lunch with kids. Big portions of decent food. Waiter was not nice, no kids' offers.

My wife was keen to try Verne on the basis of Lonely Planet recommendations. What a let-down. Brusque service and tasteless food. For sure - super cheap but I’d rather pay more and get something with a bit of flavour.

Walked passed the Opera Square down Hviezdoslavovo, along fountains and beautiful trees in fall colors and found this little hole in the wall that looks drab compared to all the other places serving tourists. Ordered the most traditional Slovakian dish: Bryndzove halusky and my wife...More

Classic Slovak dishes were very good - e.g. the "segedínský guláš/Szeged goulash" or chicken perkelt/Hungarian goulash, however the pasta dishes we had were genuinely appalling. In combination with indifferent service this place should be avoided.
