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.

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
