I went early (18ish) for a quick solo dinner, finding the place by pure coincidence not far from my hotel. What a discovery! The place is classy, warm and cozy. I am not a big fan of oysters hence I tried a mushrooms velouté soup, with poaches egg and little spinach, a touch of truffle, simply amazing!! Afterwards a prawns'... More

What a beautiful surprise to find an upscale oyster bar in Prague. An impressive assortment of oysters from around the world were offered as well as many seafood options. Location very close to the square. A wonderful find!

The Oyster Bar has honestly shot to our number one slot for atmosphere, food and specialness. Having eaten in many starred restaurants over the years, we normally seek them out - how this place doesn't have a Michelin is a complete mystery and surely one will be coming soon. EVERY course was magnificent - served with flair, beauty, skill and... More

They have a good selection of oysters and other dishes. We had oysters, salmon and octopus . Everything looks and tastes wonderful. The staff polite, helpful and attentive. A bit pricey but worth every penny.

We were in this restaurant for the third time. It is really special place with a lot of fish, oysters, seefood, ets. Cuisine is amazing, but now it seems the staff was changed and restaurant is full of cheeky youngsters, pretending waiters. Unfortunately, I suffer from a lot of food allergies and asking for simple fish with vegetables I have... More

Thank you for your feedback, but I don't agree. There is a list of allergens to every dish in the menu according to the new legislation of EU. This solves exactly case you are talking about. So you can choose a dish without a specific allergen. More

We had the Laban and la Perle Blanche oysters which were both amazing. Unfortunately there were no langoustines or lobster available so our choice was a bit limited. We tried the bouillon risotto which was very nice but had a bit too much aioli mayonnaise. We didn't want too much wine so ordered by the glass. The wine wasn't measured... More

If you are seafood lover, this is definitely your place. Great choice of delicious oysters, shrimps, shells. All courses we had, were simply fabulous. Pricey but worth the visit.

Love this place, the inside ambience is great, and its lovely to sit outside in the summer. The service is excellent, helpful and knowledgable, the food fresh and fantastic. Excellent and varied wine list. It's only the price that keeps me from going every week.

As a lover of seafood we were looking forward to our evening here and thankfully it managed to live up to our expectations, in fact exceeded them. All the food was beautifully presented from the delightful amuse bouche, to the most unique and delicious prawn cocktail , followed by the mixed seafood pan this really was a fabulous culinary experience...

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.
