The place was good once, but it lost a lot...We tried it last week and were disappointed. The tartar was tasteless, balsamic, neither olive oil or balsamic souse served. French soup was sweet like a desert. The price is high....I would skip it

Higher end restaurant of chef Polreich is a synonymum for good quality meals. Typical czech meals prepared with care taste delishious and its located right in the center of Prague. Pricey but beautiful place, good atmosphere and lovely staff, convenient for special occasions. We had Svickova, rizek and steak and all were worth those 300-400czk we paid 5 yrs ago.

We chose this place to have our first Czech meal and we are glad we did . We are pretty fussy and don't like stodgy food but the dumplings etc were very tasty and light . I disagree with the service being pretentious, we thought it was fine and loved all our courses and drink choices . It is a... More

We were recommended this place so thought we would give it a try. The cafe was nicely decorated and looked old and authentic. On looking at the menu and seeing some of the food we decided against ordering. The drinks and food were drastically over priced. In all other bars and restaurants we had paid around £1 per beer, here... More

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.
