About
We are happy to invite you to our lovely, colourful restaurant Luka Lu. Luka means harbour, and this suits our restaurant very well. Luka Lu is a harbour in Mala Strana, with its courtyards, colourful decorations, little birds and its friendly staff, mostly from the ex- Yougoslavia.Lula Lu is...Born in Prague, in a quiet and wild, cute, defiant, hides inside two natures, one from the father, Italian adventurer and bohemians, and another from a mother Bosnance quiet and simple.Lu works in Lesser inn which carries her name Luka Lu. Evil tongues say that people cross the Vltava River and on the Male Strana is because of her untamable beauty and not because of good food and wine.

Wandered into Luka Lu not sure what to expect. Preferring a local experience, it looked like a real possibility. We chose a table out front so that we could people watch. Upon excellent advice from our waiter, we ordered two different pastas, both cooked to...perfection and we loved every bite. When we finished and asked for the bill, we struck up a conversation with this proficient young man and he offered to give us a tour of his family’s restaurant, a real treat. Ah ha, don’t be deceived about the size of the place. It could seat 150 people! So many private and interesting spaces to choose from. I’m drawn to the garden area and I’m counting on returning before we leave for San Francisco. Great fresh food served in well thought out artistic spaces making each visit different and quite special. Thanks Luka Lu, we had a memorable visit!More

We visited Prague for couple days and a friend of ours brought us to this stunning restaurant. You are impacted the minute you walk in. Is so nicely decorated, it's just like contemplating art really! The concept of this Restaurant is to bring together beautiful...places and Landscapes of the former Yugoslavia. The owner was so creative, you will be really impressed! The Best of course is the food! Delicious Balkan cuisine and tasty cocktails! Service is superb and location is very convenient, just a short walk from the Charles Bridge. Truly recommend!More

Reluctant service when the waiter refused to bring the terminal and we had to queue to pay at the cash register. Average food, poor quality raw materials ("pljeskavica" with cheapest edam cheese instead of cheddar?!). Exorbitant prices. Never more.

Visited after a recommendation from a local and so glad we went. It's always a good sign when most of the clientele are local. We sat in the back courtyard, the setting was lovely and colourful as was insde the restaurant. The food was excellent,...we had pork and steak and both were delicious. Plenty of choice. The staff were pleasant and service excellent. Would definately recommend.More

Arrogant service and management, average overpriced food, make sure you have your covid pass ready and well examined/questioned. There are hundreds of better restaurants in Prague with better prices, where you can find more welcoming waiters, not annoyed when they smoking outside to see another...customer entering, food not giving you diarrhea, of course, have your Covid pass ready in this place. Why I also mentioned arrogant management? Just look at their response to every negative review of their restaurant... but if you like nice decorations, it is place to go and make some instagram pictures ;-)More

This is a delicious restaurant for anyone craving some Serbian/Croatian food (e.g. cevapcici). The service is absolutely second to none - you are made to feel like royalty immediately once you enter the restaurant. The surroundings are so colourful and memorable that you will definitely...be mesmerised by it and will spend half of your time in the restaurant studying it all!More
