Poor meal in combination with a long waiting made a very chaby impression. We won ´t repeat this again. A smell from the kitchen is also not a good point.More

Everything so perfect! Inside design, amazing food, value for money, kids corner, service... Really nothing where I can decrease my potential points. Starters amazing (croquette, pate), mains excellent (svickova, surf and turf - meat smooth as a butter) and buchticky with sodo for our kid....On top of everything amazing service, friendly, funny, professional. Once I am back nearby the area I am definitely visitng the place again.More

One of a few of really great restaurants in this area. Staff is really friendly. Not a food expert but I really enjoyed it. Environment really friendly and clean.

If you are looking for a great meal, you should really go to Bistro Magdalene. I like this restaurant a lot, me and my family choose it for celebrating some festivities. It’s located on the housing estate Vltava in České Budějovice. This French restaurant offers...salads, fresh fish and grilled meat. The Bistro has won the award for the best restaurant of the year 2016 in South Bohemia. It uses quality and fresh ingredients, they cook easy but delicious meals. It’s open from 10:30 AM - 8 PM. You can look forward to a very nice and cosy environment with kind service. The only issue is overflowing because the restaurant is full very often, so you should make a reservation. If you don’t know what meal should you try, I would recommend chocolate cheesecake for dessert (it’s delicious).More

The food was excellent. The prices are quite high but worth it. Long waiting times but we were there for lunch on Saturday so it was understandable.

Magdalena gets us out of the common-place Czech menu to some new and special dishes. The service is excellent. Inside, the decor gives the feel of a trendy Stateside restaurant- comfortable yet classy. Since the weather is still lovely, we enjoyed dining in their outdoor...patio area. Here we were treated to a brilliant sunset!More

Found this restaurant by coincidence. We were very happy with the quality of food and wine. The waitress was very nice and friendly. The terrace is a great advantage in summer.

Despite the location in the middle of block of flats, interior is in the french bistrot style - awesome. Feels like an oasis. Loved the desserts and wine selection. And the highlight - homemade lemonade! Thanks, we will be back :)
