“Great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

We chose this restaurant based on comments in TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. Blue Wagon is located near the Namesti Miru subway station, a bit outside the most touristic area of Prague. While most of the clients were foreigners when we dined there (it was Easter evening), it was clear that it was not one of the tourist traps so common in downtown Prague. The decor is modern and tidy, yet relaxed, and the service was friendly and attentive.

The menu offered an interesting selection of appetizers and main courses and the wine selection was outstanding. I opted for the soup of the day (pumpkin -- simple but perfectly seasoned and tasty) and pheasant breast (a suprisingly generous and juicy portion accompanied by vegetables), while my wife had grilled foie gras (beautifully prepared) and deer medallions (with a surprising coffee. Plating was quite sophisticated, without being pretentious. We both had Czech wines by the glass recommended by our waiter - a nice discovery that paired well with our respective orders.

We spent roughly 80 euros for two, including three courses and a few glasses of wines each -- a great value considering the quality of the food and service.

“Food is not a sideline here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

This was our second time at Blue Wagon. And though some restaurants are just there to meet friends and have a nice chat, this place is all about it's food. At least they got us and specially the kids wraped round there little finger. The menu has a broad variety of interesting food, there is a good choice of wines (try some of the czech ones). The food and the wine we had was both time a sheer delight. The only thing: this place might want to work on the choice of aperitifs.

So you might think there is a snap to it? Actually no. The prices a fair, there is nothing to complain about. Well, the only thing might be the pronounciation of the road "Uruguayska" - Hungarien road. Rather tell your cab driver you want to go to Blue Wagon restaurant. But if you are looking for a special light bulb moment about food - give it a shot and reserve a table at the Blue Wagon.

“A great food restaurant in Vinohrady...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

often stay in Prague 2 (Vinohrady), where there are good restaurants like Mozaika and Olympos and regret the closing of Passe-Partout. There are many restaurants that are pretentious and quite good and charge town centre prices but no great restaurants. Now with Blue Wagon here is the best new place I have been to in Prague for a long time. the food is at least 9/10. For a 4 course meal with wine and fresh juice at £40 per head is great value as we really pushed it

“Great looking and even better tasting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

I went for dinner with a friend on a weekday night. We were a bit early and the place wasn't very full at all, but somehow this didn't really bother me. It's such a nice-looking venue, and it feels very warm and relaxing to spend some time here, especially in the corner seat by the window. The pumpkin soup and octopus / prawns we had for starters were lovely, beautifully served, but the real highlight was the main course, a sort of vol au vent with deer ragout and chestnuts. The meat was tender, the chestnuts deliciously sweet and the rich dark sauce was simply sublime. It had the perfect consistency and was bursting with taste. We also enjoyed a bottle of Pinot Noir which was very unique and went nicely with the dish. The service was attentive, polite and cheerful, and we left feeling very satisfied indeed.

“Nice but there are better in Prague”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Blue Wagon, located in the area of many great restaurants, offers good but not excellent cuisine. Food is well presented, interior is stylish, service rather average. It has become quite popular among Prague locals and their daily menu offers very good value for the money you pay. I wouldn't say it's worthy such a high ranking. You won't be disappointed if your expectations aren't high. And there are always high expectations when a restaurant is ranked so well :)
