1 single oyster for 150 ~ 250 crowns which is already outrageous. It's not much process to crack open fresh oysters. I ordered Squid with grilled leek. It was fishy, slimy, sandy with chewy cartilage. It was inedible and I like fishy food. Server tried to defend the chef first.

Me and my girlfriend visited this amazing restaurant on our first night in prague! The bottle of Pinot to the complimentary home cooked bread, it was good from the word go. We weren't that hungry after a day of travelling so we shared the seafood risotto and only wished we had ordered one each! Hands down the best risotto we... More

We were impressed with highly trained staff and enjoyed the sitting outside, which was pretty quiet for such a central location. We took two main dishes for lunch: seafood risotto and calamari main - both very tasty. Servings a bit small and pricey comparing to other restaurants around.

The venue is super nice, people are really polite (even when they tell you 3 times that they don't have the wine you ask for or the course you ask for)... Putting flowers in a plate and serving really small ration doesn't make you a gastronomic restaurant allowing you to make gastro prizes. Beside it... The food is quite correct,... More

Dear Alex, thank you for your review. We are very focused on the quality of the dishes served, especially the freshness of the fish and seafood - everything is imported so it may happen sometimes that we run out of the particular ingredient, which is not possible get in our landlocked country. We are sorry that you were not satisfied... More

We went to this place for a long nice lunch. Highly recommended as the best seafood place by "locals". We did not book it but there was a lot of available space (even though this place is not large) for Friday lunch. Service was good but first our waiter was too distracted to pay enough attention to us. However, then... More

The Restaurant offers fresh fish and sea food. Everything was delicious. I had a carpaccio and the Turbot. The only but are the portions! Too small to me. Every main course was expensive so the size of it could've been more generous. A basket with different kind of bread was offered and all of them were very nice. The wine... More

Very tasty oysters and soup was mouth watering. Variety of wines to chose from and wait staff very attentive. Expensive but worth the splurge.

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
