Tune in to the TV tower's restaurant

There is a surprise awaiting when you finally arrive at the new restaurant located on Koliba inside the large TV-radio tower seen for kilometers. Bratislava has never been seen so beautiful as it appears from the towering heights of the mid-level restaurant. We recommend that residents of Bratislava or visitors alike find their way up there for the view, but don't expect to be impressed by the food.
Kamzík is hard to get to - there are no trolley-buses or regular buses that go up the small mountain - so we recommend going by car or taxi. Upon entering the lobby of the tower, it costs 20 Sk per person to be whisked up an elevator to the restaurant. Stepping out you no doubt have the best view of Bratislava and the surrounding areas.

Kamzík is hard to get to - there are no trolley-buses or regular buses that go up the small mountain - so we recommend going by car or taxi. Upon entering the lobby of the tower, it costs 20 Sk per person to be whisked up an elevator to the restaurant. Stepping out you no doubt have the best view of Bratislava and the surrounding areas.

It is a well-known fact that on average, restaurants which have a view this outstanding tend to have sub-standard fare We have found few exceptions around the world. Kamzík's food is not bad, but the real reason to come here is for the view and the atmosphere that it creates.

The surprise... technology has struck. The tables and chairs in the restaurant rotate around the tower for views from all four sides. Once seated, (make reservations, seating is limited) you are approached by pleasant wait staff who smile and serve you promptly. Airplanes and ducks hang from the ceiling, and the comfortable red rattan chairs create a playful and comfortable atmosphere. The fare is typically Slovak with some nice steaks which are thin, but cooked to order. Views of the forested hills near Koliba give a peek at the wild game on the menu (deer, boar) roam.

Skip the mushroom skewer the melting point for the cheese over the large fungi tends not to be high enough, plus it's a bit too greasy. If you like, ask the kitchen to prepare something special - we requested potato pancakes stuffed with Edam cheese which was prepared as ordered without fuss from the staff. Salads from the salad bar are crisp, though skip the Šopský salad (mixed salad with sheep's cheese).

Kamzík is good for a special event, special guests, or if you simply want to get out of the city and relax a bit. One ti: it is a bit tight for more than two people at a table, and five is out of the question. Dinner for two with drinks, tip and covert: 700 Sk.
