One of the main attractions of Bratislava is the quite unattractive bridge (Novy Most) on which sits an equally out-of-place looking spaceship. Hence the name UFO seems appropriate. Despite the ugly exterior, reviews suggested the food is relatively nice fusion and the degustation menu was good value.
I didn't have enough time to enjoy the degustation, but the menu, views and cold weather outside was enough to convince me to go in. The interior is very nice - white table service, modern clear chairs and a surrounding shelving with cushions and books. Then mere centimetres more is the expanse of space, the view over the Danube River and the prominent (but also quite ugly) Castle.
The menu is fusion with strong elements of European, Western and Asian jumbled together. Some dishes seem disjointed like this, but for me it's intriguing. As I wasn't looking for a full meal (that was to come after at the pub), I settled on an entree and two soups.
- Crispy tiger prawns, daterino tomatoes, coriander, coconut milk;
- Tom ka gai, frog legs, dried tuna, oyster mushrooms;
- Pumpkin soup, coconut tofu, tapioca pearls, basil oil.
Considering this is Bratislava, the prices are remarkably high. Obviously you are paying for the setting, the view (including in the toilet), fusion food and ingredients and overall the privilege of being there.
