We have just returned from our visit to Prague having visited many lovely and cheap eateries and drinking places. This was by far the worst of them all.
We are usually very prudent when eating abroad. We do our research and find the best places. Having walked around the mill earlier in the day, we spotted the restaurant with it's heated outdoor section and immediately thought it would be a great romantic spot - not thinking that we even needed to read the reviews as it looked so nice.
When we arrived we asked if it was warm in the outdoor section and the waitress said "no". There was one heater on but there were about 7 or 8 in the whole section. Another couple were in the restaurant and they were sitting with their coats on!! So not a great start...
We asked to sit inside and we were the only people there so ordered drinks. They took ages to arrive and they even came after the starter we had ordered. In the meantime the waitress also gave us bread which we didn't eat.
Everything was just ok until we got the bill. It came before our plates had even properly been cleared away, along with a calculator automatically adding 20% service charge. This on top of the 50 koruna charge per person for the bread which ended up, for 4 of us, being £7! There was then another charge for 150 for chips which we didn't get and another for dumplings for the goulash we ordered (which appeared to be included in the menu)
The attitude of the people here is complete rip off nature. We didn't leave a TIP and the waitress recounted the money several times before just asking "TIP?"...
In the end I think it cost us £100 in total. We then ate somewhere the night after which was just fantastic at 1/2 the price.... we even went to a beer hall in the old town and the food looked great... plenty more to pick from so avoid this one at all costs!
