We ate at this restaurant by chance. We liked that you can see the menu posted outside the restaurant to give you an idea of what they offer. As we did not want too heavy a meal, we asked what they would recommend. We got...very honest advice to combine the Czech platter with salad, which will be sufficient for two. The food was delivered fast and it was very tasty! As we were having a nice experience in the restaurant, we decided to stay for dessert and asked for a recommendation. The waiter recommended apple strudel as according to him, it was made the way his grandmother made it. His tone and expression were so trustworthy so we took his advice. It was indeed delicious! Overall, we were impressed by both the food and service in this restaurant that we had to make sure we got the name right for the review. Highly recommended. :-)More

This restaurant is on the main street of Wenceslas Square with outdoor seating and extremely friendly staff. Dont be deceived thinking its small - went to the loo downstairs and the place is huge inside but we loved eating outside. The food is amazing and...in particular the mixed grill which is steak, pork, and chicken with an egg on top surrounded by veg and the most delicious sauce. It was lovely sitting at the tables outside eating or just having drinks and the atmosphere on the street is fantastic. I cannot understand anyone giving this restaurant bad reviews as we visited it on numerous occasions at different times of the day during our stay and it was 100% every time for both service, atmosphere and 1st class food.More

Bad service. It took 30 minutes to receive a menu. Another 1 hr to order. They seem not to understand English, even they are young and they have the English flag. We ordered food for 2 people, thought the portions was for 1. We had...the expectation to find some Czech traditional food.More

Not really. There are some meals that will suit, however, it’s quite difficult to explain this concept and expect a completely gluten free dish.
