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. The food is hearty and elegant, ranging from goose liver palacinky to meats flambeed on a sword. $$$. CC: no. Eng. menu: no. Res: yes. 900 91 Limbach. % 704-477-361. < 12:00-23:00.
