Me and my partner ate there as we were staying at a hotel down the road, i have to say we really were not that impressed with the food. The service was a bit shoddy and we felt hurried. I understand the restaurant was busy however personally felt for the price it should of been better. However the decor was... More

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

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.

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.
