Slovak tastes in the legendary hotel

Getting to know the surroundings of Strbske pleso (tarn) brings many unforgettable experiences to visitors of the High Tatras, but at the same time it is very exhausting. After your wanderings, come to recharge and eat at the pleasant restaurant of the Hotel FIS. You can choose from a selection of home-made meals, light salads or enjoy one of the delicious desserts. The chef’s tip – the traditional Russian borscht – can make it easier for you to decide what to have. In the summer monthssitting on the terrace in the captivating Tatra environment will be a well-deserved reward.

Dine as an emperor
