Very nice cafe

while not a 5-star restaurant, I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. the piano music was a page out of the past. Maybe the service wasn't great (seems criticized in a lot of reviews) but it was our first night in Prague and I didn't really notice.

You don't go here for the amazing food, or smiling service. You go as he building is beautiful. The food is overpriced and a real shocker! So many more places to go with better food and warm welcome.

There is so much I love about this place. It's directly opposite the National Theatre and the Legion Bridge (Most Legii), not far from the Charles Bridge. The decor is beautiful art deco. There are gorgeous black and white portraits on the walls. There is live piano music. The desserts are divine. I could sit here forever. Speaking of which,... More

Yummy Chez food! beautiful 1920's environment with live piano music. Beautiful views of Charles bridge if you sit on the smoking side. Extremely reasonable and good choice of wines. Our waiter Artur was fantastic.

Traditional Czech menu options. The decor in the restaurant is very nice and our service was great. Not a fan of smoking in restaurants and it seemed to be a bit more smokey that most. Good option for a late night dinner. Favorite dinner choices were the roasted duck and beef goulash. Food was very good. Prices were unbeatable as... More

This very storied restaurant right next to the Vltava is a landmark in Prague. Vaclav Havel used to write here pre-revolution and many other notables used this as a meeting place. The decor is vintage Art Deco and looks like it was built yesterday. Much of the furniture is original and the painting by Victor Oliva of the green fairy... More

I went here often by myself and also with my boyfriend. I like to visit the café before going to the National theatre. And if I do not find a good performance at the moment, I can listen to the nice piano music. Also, it is nice to have Budweiser beer for a change sometimes.

Went there for a light lunch, came out stuffed to the brim. My fault - I know - but the portions are huge and the food is good. Would recommend both savoury and sweet dishes for anyone. Airconditioned!
