They have closed and been replaced with an excellent restaurant - Academy Bistro. I would strongly recommend them

We started with the charcuterie/cheese/veg plate which was quite large and very tasty! The service was accomodating and warm - even though we had to guess every other word our server was saying. Both of our main dishes were flavourful and filling. The atmosphere was lively and I would definitly go back. They also have some fun desserts! Try one.

This is a perfect cold weather restaurant. Klara's has an interesting menu, huge portions, and good wait staff. The duck special (usually has to be ordered 24 hours in advance) was exceptional. The goulashes are high quality comfort food at its best. Highly recommend the smoked salmon appetizer also.

We love the authentic Czech dishes and can always count on Klara's for a delightful meal. My husband orders the duck entrée whenever it's available.

Fortunately the triangle offers a wide range of international cuisine so we decided to go here for my father in mother in law's birthday dinner. The restaurant is situated in Cary's quaint city center with easy parking. There is a patio area outdoors and a cozy upscale interior. Our waitress was obviously Czech and made some recommendations that were helpful.... More

I went here with my daughter, her husband and their son (after reading the good reviews on tripadvisor). The service was excellent- our waitress (maybe the owner?) was just wonderful. She explained how to eat the goulash with dumplings and was so attentive. The fried brie and cauliflower were delicious, too. My grandson (almost a year old) was getting tired... More

My wife and I took my mother before seeing a play during her visit to NC. We were pretty early, so we could easily get a table in their outside seating on Academy St on one of the nicest weather evenings for months. We were greeted and seated quickly and our server had plenty of suggestions for both beer and... More

Apparently its packed at lunchtime, was pretty empty when we went. But it was great. A lot of Czech specials - but you expect that in a Czech restaurant!

The food is great and the atmosphere is very intimate and welcoming, but what stood out the most was the amazing service!!! Our servers were personable and attentive to our every need. I would go back if for nothing else but for the supberb service. Cheers!
