Another great spot in Karlovy Vary for a meal. We dropped in for lunch and sat outside on the terrace, and enjoyed our lunch of Czech specialties - Moravian pocket, and poached salmon. Both meals were full of flavour, and generously portioned. The Moravian Pocket...(30 mins to prepare) was well balanced, perfectly cooked pork fillet, velvet jus and stuffed with finely chopped vegetables and herbs. Great dish! The poached salmon was served with a most tasty puree of root vegetables, seriously it was the best thing i had in KV last week. Service was friendly and didn't mind my lack of Czech language skills. Definitely worth a visit.More

Love Love Love this place. We stayed in Hotel Romance Puskin and this restaurant located just in there. Open daily from 7:30 am - 9 pm. You can sit inside, but we preferred to sit outside on a beautifully decorated terrace overlooking Castle Spa and...watch people. Located in the very heart of town. Restaurant offers great Czech and international food and drinks. We ordered the roasted duck and the pork knee, beer, champagne and coffee. It was one of the most delicious dinners during our 10-day trip to the Czech Republic. Service was great. Prices are a bit higher than mid-range, but the portions are generous and tasty. I highly recommend this hotel (breakfast is included in the price - above all praise, the assortment changed every morning), and this restaurant (and its terrace) added a special highlight to our stay.More

We had a wonderful meal at the Romance restaurant in April 2019. The service was perfect, the staff were very polite and helpful. The food (starter, drink, meal and desert) was plenty, just delicious and at a very reasonable price. I definitely recommend this restaurant...if you want to enjoy some good food in Karlovy Vary.More

The "Romance" restaurant was not only the most expensive restaurant we have eaten at during our stay in Karlovy Vary but also the worst. The location itself did not meet the prices they were asking at all and the worst of all was the food....The meat was dry as a sand dune in the dessert and the sides looked and tasted as they were coming straight out of a can. I don't understand why this restaurant has so many good reviews.....More

Dear Mathas, thank you very much for your feedback. We are truly sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. Prices correspond to the location where our restaurant is located in the heart of Karlovy Vary, straightaway on the colonnade. I apologize for...More

We were staying at the hotel and dined at here. After witnessing a pork knuckle in passing decided to try. It was excellent, fell off the bone, heaps too large for a lady! This is not something I would normally cook so worth a try....The other meals were also very good. They were always busy so I suggest booking.More

We ate here on our first night in Karlovy Vary. We’d set our alarm for 0200 that morning and had been on the go since waking so were fairly tired. We were staying at the Hotel Romance and thought that eating in the hotel was...an easy option. With our being so tired we didn’t really expect the meal to be more than something to eat but we were pleasantly surprised. The food was fresh, tasty, well presented and the service was both efficient and friendly. However that service was also very, very fast and that is why we’ve only given three stars. Earlier that evening we’d enquired if it was necessary to make a reservation for 2000 that evening; we were told that they would be fairly quiet (there were only three tables occupied whilst we were there) but that they would be closing at 2100. We decided to eat earlier, at 1930, because of this. We felt that the waiting staff raced us through our meal so that they could ensure they closed on time. When my husband’s starter was cleared before I’d finished mine we thought it could have been a mistake but when his main course was cleared whilst I was still holding my knife and fork and my main course was cleared whilst I was still chewing we felt we were being hurried out of the restaurant. They entire meal, from entering the restaurant to leaving, took about 45 minutes. We finished our drinks on the terrace in front of the restaurant. This was very pleasant however we felt hassled here as well. The restaurant staff was clearing away, removing cushions from chairs, etc by 2030 and we felt we were being encouraged to drink up and leave. For two starters, two main courses and 3 50cl glasses of beer the bill came to CZK 1450. We felt that was very reasonable for what we got. We didn’t tip though because we felt that the service had not aided our enjoyment of what had been a good meal.More

We went there 3 times. The food was great, the staff was courteous, and the location was great! I would recommend reserving if you are more than 2 people, as they are very popular (even we as a couple nearly didnt have a spot one...time).More

We were staying at this hotel and decided to have dinner in the restaurant. There was a good selection of meals to choose from. We both decided on the chicken with celery mash, celery mash is something we are not familiar with. What a good...choice, the meal was delicious and one of the best we have had during our holiday. The meal was well presented.More
