Eating

Goral (highlander) restaurants, preparing sheep’s cheese and meaty soups, provide ample fuel for Tatra Mountains hikes. Equally plentiful in Poprad and the Smokovec towns are pizzerias, bakeries and fast-food places, excellent value if not always inspiring. If travelling outside high season, pensions with half-board and guesthouses with attached restaurants, found even in small villages, are the most reliable places for a bite. Poprad and Štrbské Pleso have the best restaurants.
