I am always sensitive and looking around carefully but there was simply nothing worth to mention in negative sense as regards our visit. Good location (close to city centre), very nice place, nice (and fast) service, nice food and drinks - we were VERY satisfied. You won't have any problems when speaking English only either.

Based on great reviews and the fact that this restaurant is located in a very easily accessible area of Prague, my husband and I decided to visit during our honeymoon in Prague. We had a wonderful lunch, in a great atmosphere, with excellent food and very good service. At the end of the meal, however, we realized that we didn't... More

We (4 senior Americans) thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. Comfortable, pleasant decor and friendly helpful staff made it a lovely evening. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. I had veal cheeks on the advice of the waiter and enjoyed my dinner immensely.

This restaurant is so popular that I think we were unlucky, but since 3 of my group ordered the scallops and all sent them back, euphemistically complaining that the scallops were too salty. I cannot give a higher rating. The waiter handled the situation very well and removed the scallops from the bill without any further intervention from us. I... More

I have recenlty sent guests here and both raved about the food. The first couple loved the dill soup and the wife had some type of fish and the man some pork dish. They both enjoyed it. The second couple, just this weekend, raved about the veal and the liver..both exceptional in their opinion. Locals have indicated prices have increased... More

Located downtown, get ready to be transferred to Prague in the beginning of 20th Century. Very nicely restored interior, with interesting wall tiles, but my favorite are golden bathroom fixtures in the shape of swan necks in women's bathroom. Food is great Czech cuisine with a modern twist, chef is a Czech TV cooking show celebrity. I had a typical... More

The restaurant was a short walk from the Marriott and was a great experience. The inside was an architectural master piece and restored after the neglect of the communist occupation. They did have local dishes and I had the meat and potatoes with gravy. Too much to eat! Others had the fish (which they all liked very much). Recommend this... More

This place feels like being in a very expensive restaurant but nevertheless it wasn't expensive and the food was lovely! The staff were friendly. I certainly would recommend it, even just for a coffee, as the ceramic decor is amazing.

You have to come here to see the ceramic decor. Then stay and enjoy exquisite food, drinks with Class A fine dinning service at a good price. You'll need reservations so plan ahead. The dishes were very well prepared and delicious. For desert, you have to try the Chocolate ball surprise! :))
