Came here with my boyfriend and enjoyed a nice meal. I was very happy that they had 3 vegetarian options. I had aubergine which was delicious. The cakes for desert were superb. A little on the expensive side, the first Prague restaurant we have eaten in which added in a service charge. Also after ordering a vegetarian meal we were... More

Amazing place to dine and always very busy. They did manage to fit us in for a late lunch before we left Prague. Good service even with English rather limited. Huge plate of lunches with the Chicken BLT and my daughter had the Beef with Dumplings - excellent. The tiled walls give an Indian theme which seems odd in Prague... More

A friend recommended us to come here. It was a really good recommendation. The food was phenomenal and the service was great. Don't miss the Foie Gras.

This is an incredible room with incredible history. Don't worry flavour, quality and service won't distract from the incredible surroundings. However you could just walk in, snap a few photos and dine elsewhere - that's what we should have done.

Built in 1915, this stylish restaurant is all class. Mint, ice and lemon on offer to accompany your table water as an example. We were enthralled with the ornate tiles on walls and ceiling, truly beautiful and unusual. Classic Czek food was excellent and we received superior service. Highly recommended!

Cafe Imperial is located near the Namesti Republikity station, just a 3 minute walk. The ambience and paintings were lovely, which was accompanied by good food and dessert. The fish was fresh and yummy, and the creme bulee was good despite too sweet. The service was not as good as thought. but the price was reasonable.

Thank Justin C

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.
