If you can get a window seat, that would be preferable, however the entire place is roomy and great for couples or groups. The food selection is pretty diverse, and so far everything has not failed to please. Favor something salty? Try out their "salty crepe" and go for the spinach ;)

We found the food here to be good. The Salad Bresse was a generous serving with frisée, tomatoes, blue cheese, walnuts, gherkins and chicken. The dressing may be a bit spicy for some diners. The goulash was good. The service seemed to be spotty. The best thing was the table near the window with a view of the bridge. Probably... More

The food and service are standard over the years. Which means pretty good. We went to Slavia in a group of 12 people and all of us were very satisfied. I had chicken nuggets fried in almond/bread crumbs wrapping and really excellent simple potato salad in Viennese style, i.e. without mayo. Our company was happy with their meals, too. And... More

You can go there whenever you want. I could recommend the visit before some show in the National Theatre. You will get wonderful food and drinks for very very reasonable price. I love the view over Prague Castle and also the live piano play.

We had breakfast at Café Slavia on a rainy Sunday morning (29/06/2014). We all enjoyed the food we ordered and found it extremely good value. We decided to go back there for dinner before leaving Prague. We experienced excellent service from our waitress and all enjoyed the local food again. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone visiting Prague... More

We went here for afternoon tea, based on the recommendation of our guide book. The Art Deco interior is really lovely and you could really imagine its history, full of literary types. The service was good , the tea hot and much needed and the baklava good, but not great. Really nice place but preferred the Grand Cafe Orient which... More

Great location (close to the center, opposite the National Theater), great food (try the gulash beef with dumplings, it's great) and great prices, really affordable... What more do you need? It also has a pianist playing at evenings, which makes the atmosphere even better.

Very atmospheric...a historic venue frequented by Vaclav Havel and others. Heavy smoking atmosphere, so be aware of that. Less "cafe friendly" than some others but still well worth a visit.

Crossing the border by OBB Railjet from Vienna, we didn't have high expectations in terms of modernisation of Prague city. However, we were pleasantly surprised. The tour guide praised the Karvarna Slavia Café, as we passed the place citing the many famous celebrities the frequented this place both now and years gone by. We decided to have lunch there and...
