Re: The capital's cuisine in historical premises

Re: The capital's cuisine in historical premises, By Saša Petrášová, March 17 - 23, Vol 9, No 10

My husband and I ate in this restaurant in 1977. They had just uncovered one of the frescoes on the wall and everyone was quite excited about finding it. I must say that the food that we had back then seemed much better then what you describe now. We had a cabbage soup with big chunks of meat, potatoes, and beans in it. The beer and wine was delicious too. We also had a wonderful bread pudding with whipped cream for dessert. We went to Bratislava on a hydrofoil from Vienna on a day trip. We loved the food and the people so much that we came back on a tour in 2001.
