Terrible place

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

Cold day and needed something to warm me up. Ordered a capuccino and a piece of cake. Only after ordering did I see there were no prices on the menu. The coffee was very small but the cake was OK. The bill was a shocking £9. It left a nasty taste! Do not go to this hole even if you... More

The girl at the door was very persuasive. We were four seniors and told her we were only looking for a bowl of soup on a cold day and a coffee. We were ripped off to the tune of approximately £63 for 4 soups in a cottage loaf, 2 hot wines and 2 coffees. I argued with the so-called manager,... More

We were warned to stay away from this restaurant by the owners of our rental apartment, which is in the adjacent building. They were right, and every review here is spot on. Regrettably, after a whole day of sightseeing and climbing the hill back up to the Castle District, my partner wanted something quick and convenient and asked "how bad... More

Sadly we didn't check trip advisor before entering this hell hole. We should have been put off by the lack of prices on the poorly displayed menus but still my partner wanted schnitzel so we sat down. I ordered the 'special local duck' and he the schnitzel. We had 2 sprites each. I had been told about checking prices so... 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.
