Internal structure is beautiful, however disappointed by staff manner and attitude at time of arrival. We hadn't booked a reservation, at that point we should have not proceeded and left the restaurant to go elsewhere. The male staff were far better than the female staff. The female staff were abrupt in their manner unwelcoming and rushed our dining. We would... More

Was here for dinner on our first night and it was delicious, service was great and restaurant looks beautiful. I would definately recommend the avocado shrimp dish, the confit of duck and chocolate bomb surprise but also great just to have a cup of coffee with a piece of cheesecake.

We stayed in the Cosmopolitan hotel across the street and ate here because it was too cold to go farther. The interior was quite lovely. The veal cheeks and schnitzel were delicious. Service was formal and adequate. 10% service charge was automatically added to the bill which was a bit surprising (apparently in Prague it is expected to round up,... More

The place is so beautiful designed and decorated, Everyone was surprised as it was their first time there. We were only dissapointed from the deserts we took ( 6 different cakes) which... More

As you might expect from a long established hotel with a name like this the style in the hotel is classic in its design, however, there was nothing old fashioned about the food or the service. We popped in for afternoon tea and were pleased to see a display of fresh cakes and pastries which one can only assume are... More

We had the best meal in Prague here. Make reservations and don't think you will find anything better. It might cost a little more but well worth it. Should of had every dinner here and none of our meals would have been disappointing.

Thank HowieEmbry

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
