...restaurant is attached to the Imperial Art Deco Hotel and run by a Celebrity Chef. Evening menu was reasonably priced for us Brits but maybe a little on the high side for the locals. Food was excellent and, if you are looking to sample local dishes, there are plenty here to choose from. Would definitely recommend.

Efficient, friendly and informed service, good food, good price. A bit too formal for my liking and they kept giving us free bread which was completely unnecessary. I'd I've rather paid the low prices for the good food! Not much to compare it to in Prague but certainly very good.

The cafes atmosphere was beautiful and the service okay. The food was decent. However their ginger beer and dessert were really good. I recommend their chocolate bomb surprise.

I've eaten in this restaurant several times and only have superlatives for it. The whole hotel building has been is meticulously restored to its Art Deco glamour, even the gold-and-crystal swan taps in the loos are simply exquisite. Service is impeccable in both Czech and English, food is delicious made from top ingredients. We have tried the 'svickova', steaks, fish,... More

Lovely breakfasts - plenty of choice on the buffet. Evening meals are also delicious and reasonably priced. We had two courses each, beer and a bottle of wine for £37 and we were full up!

We stopped off here in the afternoon after a busy morning sightseeing, the staff were very pleasant & helpful. We had a hot chocolate & Latte, plus a cake each, then had another piece of cake to share - all delicious! The interior of the café is stunning, so lovely to relax & enjoy tasty cakes in such beautiful surroundings... More

Lovely surroundings and excellent breakfast. Best to avoid weekends if you can as it is extremely busy. You have also the choice of the buffet breakfast till 1030 or various other dishes. Service was good and not too expensive. Would definitely recommend it as a nice place to eat and watch the world go by.

Charm and luxurious feel of olden days is provided by authentic and unique interiors and great service from highly professional staff. Food is bit boring - good but not great. Then again beeing a hotel restaurant with quite wide menu, it holds up quite well.

Especially delicious hot chocolate! We were well cared for without feeling rushed and enjoyed a lovely... More

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.
