We last visited in October 2013 with a promise to return which we did having booked in advance from the UK. We were not disappointed. Other reviewers have spoken highly of the mushroom soup; wow, this is without question the best ever followed by the venison steak in rich plum sauce, which was equally outstanding. Quantities continue to be huge,... More

Looking for a non touristic place in old town we bumped into this place that looked different. The atmosphere was nice, i especially enjoyed the painted glass on the windows. When we arrived they were empty and gave us only 2 options,but they let us sit on a big table for 6 although it was only 2 of us. Service... More

On our last day in Prague in February we were lucky enough to have had a late(ish) lunch here, having stumbled across it quite by chance. We were, I now realise, very fortunate to have been given a table (especially as there were five of us). This is now my most favourite restaurant in Prague (and I do have a... More

Came here after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor We arrived around 8pm on a Tuesday night and at first we were the only people in the restaurant which was slightly concerning .... however it did start to fill up around 9pm and there were a number of reserved tables. Ordered goats cheese to start which was really good. It... More

This restaurant provided a very pleasant, quiet romantic evening for two of us. Service was good, menu was interesting and the food was pleasant, and reasonably priced - Wine menu was significantly overpriced, but house wine was really quite acceptable, and was sold by the 25cl glass at a very reasonable £2.50 a glass. Decor was very interesting and atmospheric.... More

tackled in a quiet street just minutes from the happening city center. Relaxed, cosy atmosphere with a very attentive and genuine owner. Mushroom soup, apple strudel are the must! enjoy

Visited after reading reviews and were not disappointed. Lovely old fashioned decor with vaulted ceilings. Friendly waiter who speaks good English. Varied menu of traditional dishes which in my opinion is what you want to eat when visiting other countries. My wife and I were full to say the least after our starters and main, and its not often I... More

As so many others gave glowing reviews, we decided to go to this restaurant. BIG mistake - it was awful. The service was OK, if a little overfriendly, which felt worse as it dawned on us that we'd been had. A bottle of wine in Prague should not cost €36, reasonably good though as it was. The cost of the... More
