We had dinner at this place and it was good. as they said this is one of the best places in Český Krumlov I would say YES. Food was tasty, staff was frindly and you have amazing river view from this place (if you will...have chance to sit outside).More

The best service and coffee in town. Really nice food, and the view. I am really impressed and I look forward to visit this friendly, professional place again! Well done to all personnel for making this place so good.

Really enjoyed dinner here, there is a great view onto the Vltava river. Waiters were nice, food was tasty but the choices were rather limited which was a shame. Service was very quick, and they accept card which is a rarity in this town so...that was really convenient.More

The restaurant have quite nice interiors and a beautiful veranda in the side below the castle overlooking the river. It’s immediately clear that claims itself to be a classy and elegant place: at the entrance there’s a small stand with a sign that informs customers...to wait there in order to be accompanied to the table. We were waiting like two fools for more than 5 minutes without any of the staff who passed nearby, deigning to do anything. So after this first wasting of time we devised to came in, and met two waiters who also didn’t say anything to me. At that stage i decided to take the initiative and after having stopped another waiter, i asked him for a table for two people but i was told that there were no vacancies BUT if we wish, we could sit at a table (obviously bigger) with some people who were already there. Now let's keep apart this attempt to be available and kind toward us, but with reversed roles is an indication of bad service and further lack of respect for the customer: how i say? I have a quiet dinner in a romantic and supposedly classy location with my wife and waiter brings two strangers to the table? What kind of place is it? Not even at the self service of the train station they behave like that... We obviously went away immediately and with no regrets.More

We are local people and we came here to have a typical Czech food - sirloin sauce (SVÍČKOVÁ). We were so disappointed...This sauce should be sweet however it was just like an mustard sauce. Horrible. 👎🏻👎🏻
