Being a Thursday, we were fortunate in getting there early enough to get by without having made a reservation, but later eaters and weekenders should. Excellent food, in a charming setting, with excellent service. provides a range of dishes, but specialises in local cuisine.

We ate here last year and liked it so much we returned. We made a reservation for dinner which I think is essential during the summer. The restaurant itself oozes character but badly needs air conditioning. Having the windows wide open, onto the street and a fan is not sufficient. The food is freshly prepared so be prepared for a...

This place desparetely needs airconditioning as dining there can be a very uncomfortable experience. The service was good and the food better than average without being outstanding.

This was our first meal in Prague and it was lovely. The restaurant has true bohemian decor and atmosphere complete with a candle on every table and a street view through an arched stucco window. The food was real homemade czech/moravian dishes like crispy roasted duck with sweet and sour red cabbage. The service was excellent.We were waited on by... More

We absolutely loved this restaurant - it's just a few blocks from our hotel and there was a terrible thunderstorm that rolled through so we wanted to eat somewhere close. I am so glad we found it, and my guess is that even though we're here for a full week, we're not going to find a place we like better.... More

Searched this place out after reading about it on trip adviser, luckily I saved it as a favourite, so was able to find it using my iphone. The waiter was really pleasant and helpful and the food was really good too, prices were very reasonable for the standard of place this is and for the food they serve up. Well... More

The outside is displaying "travellers awards" from 2011 and onwards together with a promise of a michelin star. The inside is a cellar with a cozy and easy atmosphere although a bit varm in July. The service of this place is amazing, the vaitor was not to pushy but gave us everything we asked for with a smile. Very polite... More

Found on the day we arrived and had a great (and cheap) lunch, returned a few days latter for a great dinner. Not subtle food, but great flavoured solid local cuisine (and good sized portions!) in a place with a lot of character and a very friendly waiter/manager. Well worth the small detour from the most popular areas just a... More

Stylish restaurant with the beginning of 20th century "artsy/nouveau" theme. Kind of unexpected. Went there twice for dinner. Impeccable service, outstanding food, and very reasonable prices. Portions are HUGE - they give you real 1/2 of the duck, so better to split with a companion, and they even split it for you and bring on separate plates. The same with... More
