Lasagna tasted like home cooked. Good service. Ask for seating on the riverfront as it's very scenic. Besides Italian they have burgers and fries, etc.

What a wonderful find! We dined on the terrace overlooking the river and I had the Czech classic Svíčková na smetaně (beef in cream sauce with cranberries and dumplings), and my wife had a well prepared tenderloin steak which was surprisingly affordable. We washed these...down with some excellent Czech beer and had a wonderful evening. Very friendly and helpful service. Highly recommended!More

BEWARE.. overcharging. Meal & staff were excellent. However we were over charged 2000 Czech on top of our 800 Czech meal for 2. Disappointed.

Papa's was nothing short of spectacular! The ambiance of the restaurant was inviting and warm, creating the perfect setting for a memorable meal. The highlight of my visit was undoubtedly the lasagna. It was a culinary masterpiece, surpassing even the lasagnas I've enjoyed in Italy....The balance of flavors, the freshness of the ingredients, and the perfect bake made it stand out as the best lasagna I've ever tasted. The staff's friendly and attentive service added to the overall excellence of the experience. I highly recommended to anyone visiting this beautiful little town.More

Great food, drinks in a cozy place. Bit hard to find from the street. Perfect Cezar salad, burger, lasagna, pizza. Great sortiment of drinks. Unfortunately the terrace was full, we were sitting inside. They also didn't accept reservations for the terrace. Due to the crowd...we had to wait for being seated as well as for the food, but it was worth.More

We had a bad experience here. My friend and I both ordered lasagna. When it arrived, the waiter told us it was hot. We both waited a bit and blew air on the dish. Mine was hot, but not overly hot, but my friend's was...far too hot to be served. My friend burned her mouth very badly on the lasagna dish--she actually developed two blisters on the roof of her mouth. We kept asking the wait staff for ice, but kept getting ignored. To be fair, we all finished our food while waiting for ice--and of course, the lasagna naturally cooled off. I finally found the manger/owner. He was very dismissive. His response was, why did my friend eat the entire dish if it was unsatisfactory? We asked if he could take her lasagna off the bill, but he basically laughed at us, said we were warned it was hot, and my friend ate the lasagna. Of course, she ate it. It took twenty minutes to get his attention, she was hungry and the lasagna had cooled. We were told later by a local that the restaurant is popular, and she said the restaurant owner probably felt there was no reason to accommodate us, as their reputation is secure. It left us with a bad taste in our mouth, so to speak. Certainly, my friend had a burned mouth that took several days to heal. Would not give them business again. June 18, 2023More

We were taken by our guide. The maitre d' Mr Radek was most helpful and he gave us a table by the riverfront. We ordered a veg spaghetti and onion cheese rings. A small glass of beer. The young waitress hardly understood the order. The...beer came : half empty due to froth. I sent it back as the barman should have poured without 50% foam. It came back slightly less foam. The spaghetti turned out to be non veg, so back it went. The fresh veg spaghetti was tasteless : no sauce or gravy. It was thin spaghetti and semi cooked. Olive and tomato pieces were scattered around it. I ate half and left it. MrRadek called the taxi and that helped a-lot as it saved us walking.More

We discovered this place while wandering the city in search of slightly better restaurants and our evening experience did not disappoint. The staff were keen to welcome us and really friendly. The menu was mixed Czech or Italian. We had been here a week so...chose Italian and starter and mains delicious, couldn’t fault it at all.More

This is one of the highest-rated restaurants for good reasons. First of all, it sits on the water for some lovely views as you can see in the photos. Secondly, the food is outstanding. In our opinion, the tomato soup was the best we've ever...eaten! My husband ordered the sirloin steak and it was cooked perfectly. I ordered the slowly braised beef that melted in my mouth. Both were hefty portions too where we couldn't eat any dessert. Last but not least, the staff was attentive and personable. Overall, if you have the opportunity to dine here, try to make a reservation in advance so you don't miss out!More

Very rude stuff. We’ve been waiting for 15 minutes to be sitted and when we got our turn server told us he had no free table and he would not have any free table. Apparently didn’ want us there.
