the decor and the food, both excellent

We couldn't believe the atmosphere created by the history and the decor of the restaurant. The food was traditional and the service was excellent. So handy to have fine dining at realistic prices right there where you are staying.

We stayed in Prague for a long weekend in May'15 and had breakfast here 2 out of the 3 morning we stayed. The prices are very reasonable (compared to English restraunts of a similar calibre anyway) and the building itself is beautiful - inside and out!

I recently had lunch here with my daughter and two grandchildren. Really good quality food and plenty of it and at a reasonable price. We tried to get a table on another day but as the cafe is a favourite place for locals as well as tourists and it was a Saturday we were unable to get a table. I... More

We first came for dinner which was so delicious (Czech cuisine and international) and a great value that we decided to come back for breakfast which was even better (best Eggs Benedict!!) and only didn't make it for lunch because we were too busy. The waiters are very attentive and friendly, the interior is like in the old times with... More

This was the restaurant attached to our hotel so we decided to eat here on our first night. The food and wine was very good. Both my wife and I had steak which was delicious. My wife thought the steak was a little bit salty but I out this down to the fact that she doesn't normally out salt in... More

Visited the Cafe Imperial as part of a food tour - we were not disappointed! Following a beautiful soup (with a poached egg in it), I opted for the national dish. Each dish was delicious, the service was fantastic and you felt like you were sitting somewhere incredibly special. Definately recommend a visit to see the decor not to mention... More

Absolutely wonderful restaurant! 1920's decor that would be an appropriate set for a scene from an Agatha Christie novel. Service and food was excellent! We had seafood, onion soup, pan fried aubergine (eggplant) and potatoes Au gratin. Enjoyed it so much that we returned for a second night! We were told that we would need a reservation, but when we... More

We were staying in the hotel and ate at several other restaurants but we came back here and had lunch one day and dinner another. You will need dinner reservations since this is a very popular restaurant.

Huge menu featuring both traditional Czech food as well as anything else you might be in the mood for. English menu available. Service was excellent, food was delicious and artfully presented. The dining room is classic art deco. This café in the US would be triple the price!

As something of an institution in Prague, this place lived up to its billing. The service was very good. The staff are clearly well trained and drilled - as a large restaurant they need to be. They were polite, knowledgeable and ready to advise if asked. Food was presented well and tasted good. There was a wide range of dishes... More

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.
