We were visiting Prague to mark our 10th wedding anniversary and reserved a table at Cafe Imperial after reading the reviews on TA. The restaurant has a lovely feel to it and the staff went the extra mile to make us feel special. The food is great quality for the price and everything is freshly prepared. We had steak and...

The Art Deco tile work and frescoes are stunning. A nice atmosphere for a good cup of coffee and a standard breakfast. The wait staff was excellent. Well worth a visit.

We ate in this restaurant a couple of times since we loved the art deco tile work and the overall ambiance. The food was very good. I had the roasted veal shank and it was outstanding. A good assortment of Pilsners. Make sure you ask to see the private dining room and stroll over to the hotel lobby.

In the center of town is an historic, very much "Imperial" cafe ready to take you back in time and help you experience a different age. The service was mixed, from excellent to typically unpleasant Eastern Block attitude. The food was good and reasonably priced. Overall, a very pleasant and special experience worth recommending to others.

Beautiful building and service is perfect. Lovely elegant dining with beautiful food. Mostly full of tourists but not "touristy". A wonderful evening but slightly lacking in character if you're looking for something more traditionally Czech.

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
