Gorgeous restaurant with perfect service

It was lovely. We found it on here. As we walked there we thought it was going to be a horrible tourist place, but it wasn't at all. It felt really contemporary and modern.

Very enjoyable and popular restaurant just around the corner from the Four Seasons. Excellent wine list and their sommelier, Andre, is enthusiastic and knowledgeable. My husband and I shared two pasta dishes for our first courses; truffle, and also a fresh tomato, and both were delicious. We split the Whole Sea Bass in Salt which was very moist but unfortunately... More

You'll find also very good meals well dressed and testy. Ok price are higher than other but right regarding test and quality. You will enjoy this adress I... More

I found La Finestra through an online recommendation of a top food critic that made me aware that although food in Prague has developed amazingly a lot of it is still typically Czech (not a bad thing just very stodgy) or is merely catering to tourists but not that refined. La Finestra is none of those. The attention to detail... More

I loved food & service, fresh fish was delicious, service was excellent. But the dessert, especially raspberry mousse with pana cotta made my day :) If you are aiming for classy dinner or date, it is a perfect place. ...but make a reservation day or few day before the D-day.

Excellent dining experience coupled with a very informed sommelier and an evening to truly remember. We chose this restaurant after a beautiful musical soiree at the Jewish synagogue and we were certainly not disappointed. This is easily one of the best Italian restaurants we have been to, and the list includes many restaurants on our trip to Italy. The meat... More

Very professional and friendly service - we all loved our dinners. Creative menu. Grilled fish with roasted potatoes - best potatoes I think I've ever had, better than in Tuscany. Asparagus soup with beef tartare. Spaghetti with pesto. Seafood stew. Wine sommelier was informative and gave us several choices at our price range. One of my daughters didn't want a... More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. 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.
