Takes ripping off the tourists to a new extreme, with all sorts of additional charges that appear only on the bill, items on the menu that are not available (how can toast with jam not be available? What did they run out of?) and bad service in general. We paid about three times what the signs... read more

The Lady there almost pulls u inside the restaurant. The sweet talking ends the moment u walk in. A bowl of chips kept on the table has the price hidden. Very expensive place n bad service. Do yourselves a favour and stay away from this place...

We have visited a couple of places in centre of Prague before this one. It isn't any different regarding its location or look, so we expected service, prices and overall experience to be the same. First, there is this lady that tries to literally pull in walkers by, loudly and impolitely. Then, the waiter was obviously unsatisfied when we said... More

We visited here recently, the place is located not far from Prague castle, iooked nice, so we sat down outside. The guest is greeted with very nice colour photos of the dishes on offer, BUT NO PRICES ARE VISIBLE! At the bottom of the page is a notice to the effect that the prices are printed on the main menu....of... More

Latte costs here about 4,5€, a cake - about 5€.. Am I in Finland??? For this price you're supposed to get a royal service and superb food, but nope, it's worse than average. Better try Starbucks 5 min away from here.

The restaurant looked nice, and the location, just near to the Scharzenbach Palace attractive. But the food was low standard, and the staff regardless. For two basic salads and two lager beers we had to pay 1133 CZK - tip not included- A real tourist-trap. To avoid !

Looking for a restaurant where I could take a quick lunch, I unfortunately was duped by the pics of salads hanging next to the entrance. Thinking this would be the right thing I’m looking for, I sat down inside, ordered a beer and the menu. Before I got it, I had a glance at the place: it’s said to be... More

Seriously, the only reason why I think they are still in business is because they rip off tourists so bad that they can cover the loss of every other days. 1. Hidden costs? Checked. Chips are given 45 CZK label, but beware of others. 2. No price on menu? Checked, they will give you the 'real' menu only if you... More

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
