BORINKA Pri Potoku- Drive (buses are limited) 25 km north of Bratislava to dine alongside a babbling brook close to the hiking paths that lead to the Pajštún Castle ruin in the Little Carpathian mountains.

Cintorínaka 227, Borinka. % 938-141. < 11:00-22:00 Tu-Th, 11:00-24:00 F-Sa.

LIMBACH Hotel Limbach- The area's best (and perhaps the most expensive) restaurant is 15 km away in Limbach. Relax under wooden beams, rustic paintings and hunting trophies.
