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! :))

I grew up 50m from this hotel/cafe/reastaurant. It was used after 1948 as premium stay for the union members, especially farmers and their families. They used to be shuttled in in coaches and often looked as if they came straight from the fields, in stark contrast to the opulence, if not decadence, of the hotel. After the velvet revolution, the... More

For the last night in Prague we decided to eat at the Café Imperial - 3 couples. We did not have reservations (which I highly recommend) but we were there around 5 PM on a Monday Night in July. The restaurant is beautiful. An Art Nova design circa 1907. The walls, ceiling, pillars were covered by Ceramic and Plastic embossed... More

Our only regret? We were able to dine here only twice and not three times. I knew it the minute I saw the menu because I wanted at least 4 of the entrees! In the end, I chose veal liver one day and rabbit the other. Both were absolutely superb . . . leaving me only to miss the venison.... More

We enjoyed our visit to Cafe Imperial. It was some of the best breakfast food during our entire visit. Beware that sometimes the portions are small - I ordered pancakes and received three that were smaller than silver dollar-style US pancakes. My husband ordered an espresso latte, assuming it would be a latte with espresso instead of straight coffee .... More
