Excellent restaurant, great atmosphere and the owner is completely dedicated to his small piece of art, and to the customers. Not to be missed in Prague.

My magnificent girlfriend chose this restaurant for its unique interior and great trip advisor reviews. In terms of food it was spot on! We shared the prague ham to start which was the best we have had is far on our trip! She then had a tasty chicken soup and I had a very tasty crispy duck dish which was... More

We had special czech dishes and can only recommend this restaurant. Good value for money! Lovely staff and fresh food. As we were early we could chose a table - so we chose a table with a cosy sofa. Needless to say that we stayed a fair while! It's recommended to book a table a day in advance.

My wife and I wanted to go to a nice restaurant near our hotel and so I found this on tripadvisor. When we arrived we found out that the restaurant was fully booked but someone had cancelled at the last minute so we got a table. The service we received was simply brilliant; I would have to say some of... More

Make a reservation in advance for this small, quaint restaurant. When asking questions about the various menu items (and thinking it sounded delicious but too much food) the waiter suggested a 1/2 portion. It was still a generous portion and just right! Save room for coffee and dessert. Yum!

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.
