Great stop to end the evening with a glass of wine.

We didn't dine here, but it looked like the fare was good. It is a comfortable place, with friendly servers and good wine - right next to Hotel Hastal. They do allow smoking; that may put some diners off.

We wandered in tonight for dinner. We were a group of nine but that was no trouble. Everyone was very pleased with the excellent meal, house wine and desert. Very relaxed atmosphere and friendly service.

Next to the Hotel Maximillian and has small yard in the rear which we liked. Returned several times for either a meal, to have snacks and cake, and of course nice cold beer and coffee. Always felt a calm place and whether it was during or at the end of a busy day walking we were always made to feel... More

Had dinner on the first evening of a week end in Prague (june 2015) - and had to come back next evening. Got four different main courses, a couple of entrées and a couple of desserts. Everything - EVERYTHING - was spot on. This happens very, very seldom! I can't remember getting a better Bistro meal - even after spending... More

In this little back street French restaurant you will meet all French people living in Prague at some point. Absolutely amazing food at very reasonable prizes, and of the beaten tourist track.

This restaurant is two doors down from the Hotel Maximilian. We had lunch there twice, not because of the proximity, but because the ambiance, the service and the food is wonderful. We highly recommend it.

Have travelled widely and am a fan of French food, but I found the service horrendous in this restaurant. Waiter was actually mocking me and humiliating me in front of other waiters when my husband was in the toilet! He seems to be a misogynist and was laughing about 'The British Female' (which had to be me as it was... More

Dear Caroline C I am sorry you feel you had a bad experience at Chez Marcel but I am 100% sure my waiters were not mocking any women including you. My waiters are not misogynistic even in a small way. I am a female owner of Chez Marcel employing 5 women and 6 men and in the past 10 years... More

A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
