Excellent meal, reasonable price !

This is a lovely art deco restaurant in an old hotel in downtown Prague. Everything about the meal was great, the environment was wonderful and the service and food excellent. Very reasonable, too !

The Cafe Imperial is such a special place, beautiful decor, lovely food, very friendly and professional staff. I had steak which was very tasty and my husband had the lamb also very tasty. Good wine too.

This place was recommended by the concierge at the hotel and it was a great find. We did not book but it was quite busy so we were lucky to get a table very quickly. The surroundings are all tiled walls and ceilings which were very unusual. Service was fantastic. The food was interesting, well prepared and tasty. A bit... More

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and, seeing the good reviews decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is stunning inside with beautiful ceramic tiles on the walls and ceiling giving an upmarket yet welcoming atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and helpful which always makes a big difference (I do wish all restaurants would... More

" To die For"!! We were recommended by several Tour Guides for good Reasons: 1) Beautiful Ambiance 2) Incredible Food! Try the " Duck Confit " and " Dill Soup "!!!! You WILL be back 3) Ridiculously CHEAP! Nice meal, with wine, for TWO for about $30-$35 US!! 4) The Duck was better than the Duck @ The Eiffel Tower... More

I saw this place on-line and it looked so interesting I really wanted to see it. We had lunch here and the interior did not disappoint. Really interesting place to eat. The food was good and the service very nice. Worth it just to see the interior.

It was quite a let-down for us. Food was average. And I can't help but feel that the place is a bit rundown.

Great place if you want good Czech food. Beautiful dinning hall. Welcoming and friendly. Ask the waiter what is genuine food on the menu and you will get good dishes to choose from.

So so service, cold beer, and average food. Worth one meal or drink just to see the mosaics. There was a little bit of language barrier for us english speakers but I tend to blame myself as we are the visitors. Just makes it a little harder to order, but pointing at the menu (written in several languages) worked.

The wow factor is obvious here. From pillars to mosaics to golden swan facets in the ladies room, this restaurant is a feast for the eyes and stomach. Easy walking distance from old town. Good food and really good service. And save room for dessert.

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.
