Nestled on a quiet, nondescript strret sits one of the best dining experiences in Prague. Chef Steven Trumpfheller is a master in the kitchen, using only fresh ingredients. We enjoyed wonderful corn chowder, delicate halibut with grilled vegetables, and finished with delicious dessert dishes. All the while the atmosphere was made warm and cozy with live piano music (played on... More

The food we had was just delicious. Very tasty, good portions, value for money. The restaurant was nearly empty on Wednesday evening so we could hear each word and also whistling of two waiters. I am really not interested to hear their "ty vole" while having my dinner. I think this should not happen in a place like this. As... More

Fabulous ambience with cozy couches, fireplace and candlelight but the phenomenal seafood dinner was outstanding with the abundance and variety of seafood in a light butter lemon sauce. The chef greeted us personally and helped select a terrific wine and a sinful dessert of chocolate mousse.

The restaurant was just two minutes from our hotel (hotel 16). We took a chance as we had not booked, but we were hungry so went a little early, arriving at 7.30pm there was a table free but the restuarant was surprisingly busy. We were seated quickly by friendly waiting staff who spoke very good english and made to feel... More

Great place. Quiet, great service and wonderful food. Regarding the food, I judge most restaurants by how fresh and well cooked the fish is. I was not disappointed. It was perfect.

Great service, great food and if you are looking for a romantic dinner one of the best restaurants in Prague. The only thing missing is a great view, but the food, and good selection of wines make up for it. I would definitely recommend the seafood, You can not get much fresher in a land locked country, especially given that... More

I think it's fair to add to my previous comment that I received an answer from the owner of the restaurant within 2 days, mentionning that he took good note of my comments. He mentionned he would review all bullets one by one, and that a new menu was on the way, so I hope things got better since then.... More

Dear Steven, after having heard very positive feedbacks from your place and after a deep look at your nice webpage, both my wife and I were really looking forward to visiting you. So we came for dinner on Saturday. We were so disappointed... I'm not used to do so, but this time I really wanted to give you our feedback,... More
