it depends on tastes but the best choice is to find out Slovak Spectator online and ask for their guide through the whole Slovakia and of course restaurants. It is very useful material :)

Favorite Dish: What to try? Definitely, BRYNDZOVE HALUSKY, it is a national dish consisted of dumplings (made from potatoe dough), bryndza (what is a kind of taste like cheese feta mixed with yoghurt but it is not the same, just for imagination ;) how it should tasted for you) and finally fried bacon. When you mix it all together and add milk cream it looks pretty scary but taste is really delicious. No one of my foreign friends who tried it was dissapointed. Then you must try ZEMIAKOVE PLACKY, potatoe pancakes. They are served with meat or cheese or milk cream and garlic. It depends on season but the best are always on Christams Markets served as fast food. Similar stuff is called LOKSE (read loukshe) special kind of pancakes filled with poppy seeds or goose roast, very yummie. If you are fan of sweets then you must go to CUKRAREN where you can taste every single cake ;). The most famous are kremes (read kremesh), veternik or laskonka. Fine cakes can be found in many places but especially in downtown they are pretty expensive, so try to find Cukraren at Sturova ulica, there is also served at least 40 kinds of ice creams (especially in summer).

Drinks ;)) there are available all kinds of drinks you can experience at every corner of the world but try BOROVICKA, kind of vodka like drink (around 43-47% of alcohol) with special flavour of juniperus and SLIVOVICA (strong alcohol 40-60% of alcohol made of plums, apples, apricot... all depends what you can find ;)) Who do not like strong drinks try Slovak wines, the best is Tokaj and then you can find other nice wines in cellars or restaurants around. Non alcoholic drink - my favourite - made in Slovakia is VINEA, with taste of sweet wine and you can get two kinds - white or red.

Bon apetit or Dobru chut ;), Cheers or Na zdravie :) (literal translation means On your health!)
