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

It is a well known place and the interior is very nice and classy; however, the quality of the food and drinks is decidedly not worth the money, particularly considering this is in Prague. The coffee was very pricey and weakish, cakes average at best. If you are looking for the Art Deco style and/or old world atmosphere, go to... More

We had dinner at the Cafe Imperial and what a meal it was. I had the best French Onion Soup I've ever had followed by the best ever Wiener Schnitzel. My partner had Crab and Avocado Roulade, followed by Pike Perch and by all accounts it was absolutely delicious. We also had breakfast on three occasions. The breakfast choices were... More

Food good but not the best we have had in Prague, but the dining room is gorgeous Art Nouveau. Service very good. Caesar salad good but not exactly Caesarlike dressing. Rabbit over fresh spinach ravioli quite nice.
