Decided to dine here after reading some very positive reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent without being overbearing. The atmosphere was cosy and romantic. I am so glad that we decided to try some local cuisine. My starter of ham and main of tenderloin stuffed with bacon was delicious. The portions are large but... More

One of the best restaurant in Prague, not very touristic (rare in Prague), every time it worth the visit, food is very good, service is perfect, atmosphere is sweet and Rilke is one of my favorite writer. Enjoy.

Our first impression of an empty bar/dining area from Karoliny Svetle almost caused us to pass by. However, since the weather was cold we decided to venture in and we were rewarded with a warm, comfortable and busy dining room on the other side. The food was excellent, especially the venison pate, the roast duck and the very delicious chocolate... More

We found this restaurant "by mistake", seeking European and International cuisine more than the local one. However, passing by, we guessed that the atmosphere of this small, rustique and cosy restaurant was worth a visit. And it was indeed! Service was fantastic from the minute we arrived! Food was really good, wine by the glass was served generously, and the... More

This was a very cosy restaurant and decorated with photos and quotes of the poet Rainer Maria Rilke. Food was traditional czech food and was delicious - we had goulash and lamb knee. Portions are on the large side so it was a good thing we didn't get starters. All for a very reasonable 800CZ ..

Be sure to make reservations for this one. It's a small, cozy restaurant with wonderful check cuisine. The prices are also very reasonable.

We found this restaurant and it was recommended by our hotel. The duck was delicious, the staff very friendly and courteous had helped us pick our dishes and drinks. If you are visiting Prague and are looking for authentic and delicious Czech food this is the place to go. It also has some vegetarian friendly dishes.

The restaurant was located near our hotel (Leonardo). It has great atmosphere, many locals and few tourists. The service was very good, English speaking and super friendly. We ordered two Czech specials from the menu which were excellent ! Even the beer was so good... We took a lot of pictures of the restaurant itself, it is truly special. This... More
