I used to live right above this place back in early 2010 and we would go here quite often. They make very solid food and there's almost always something everyone will enjoy on the menu. As I recall the soups were good here and so was the bread/butter served at the start of each meal.

The service was very poor. Our waitress was very rude (rolled her eyes when we made requests, didn't acknowledge us when thanked her in Czech every time she brought us food or cleared our dishes). The food was also not very good. The carrot salad was literally just a pile of grated carrots. One of our party felt so bad... More

Having a sort of dilemma where to arrange a birthday party we visited this restaurant to get a picture about what they are capable of. We tried a variety of meals including cake and finally I must admit all of them was nothing but excellent. Although restaurant itself seemed a bit shabbier that I expected the French restaurant should look... More

I was there with my boyfriend, who likes french cuisine. But we were really dissapointed, because of the staff. They were really unproffesional according to the money we spended there..And food can be better, can be made with some love..

Very cozy restaurant, nice light, good food and service. We'll be back. It's both for smokers and non smokers.

After enjoying a lot of Czech food, we were craving for vegetables, so we decided to go with a French restaurant. We weren't disappointed, the food was great, very friendly staff, quiet atmosphere, and reasonable prices (although slightly higher than your typical Czech restaurant).

No doubt, Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in the world where lovers of classical music will find daily more than they can attend. However, a gourmet will need good glasses to find delicate dishes as most reestaurants offer exclusively Czech food: piglegs, fat goose, dumplings (no not the delicate Cantonese but the indigestible German type). An exception... More

Faultless service, delicious, good quality food at a very reasonable price. I had the best steak tenderloin I've had in a long time, cooked exactly as I liked it. The restaurant is quite noisy, but the atmosphere was really good so it was fine, everybody seemed to be enjoying themselves. The service was really very good, the waitress remembered our... More

Very affordable. We arrived from the airport just as they were closing but they were good enough to let us in. We had a great meal and were pleasantly surprised by the bill - under 500 crowns for a meal for two with beer only 30 crowns.
