Had the most wonderful meal in this beautiful Art Deco restaurant. Our waiter, Petr was polite, attentive and helpful. The food was excellent. Try to lamb shank.

The decor and building were resplendent The food was hearty, cheap and as tasty as I have tasted in Central Europe And most importantly, the service from our host, Petr, was as crisp, polite, friendly, helpful and engaging as one could hope. Truly a delightful man and a wonderful evening

After a "Don Giovanni" at the jewel Estates Theater, we needed to end the evening at a restaurant that could be at our level of expectations and Cafe Imperial certainly did the trick. The place is fantastic with Art Deco decoration, which set us in the right mood. Moreover, this was superbly matched by very attentive and efficient waiters, who... More

This restaurant is a jewel in Prague. The restaurant interior is made out of mosaics which make it a bit retro. Food is good (they have outstanding hamburgers and I tried a good local soup called kuleida). Don't waste time on desserts, that's the only negative point ... tried all of them and not outstanding. Price is not low but... More

We ate dinner at Cafe Imperial. It was a beautiful old building and the staff were very friendly and attetive. Three of us each had different entrees and all of them were excellent. Unfortunately I don't remember the names of the dishes. While traveling we always like to try local food and this was one of the best we had... More

This cafe is absolutely gorgeous. It reflects back to the time it was built, over 100 years ago. Definitely worth a visit. And enter or exit through the hotel for a glimpse of the lobby. We just stopped in for coffee and cake, both good, so I can't comment on the food. But the waitstaff was pleasant...not always a given... More

This is an awesome Art Deco restaurant, located within a shott walk distance to the Hilton Old Town. Service was great (I did not have a reservation) and the food was spectacular in quality. I could not believe the price (very affordable). You could go there just for dessert as they specialize in delicious local cakes (and apple strudel). Highly... More

Ate here because we were tired after walking all day and it was in our hotel. Did not have high expectations of a hotel restaurant, but it was wonderful. Beautiful art deco decor, very nice service, and reasonable prices. Portions are huge and very nicely presented. We ate here twice for dinner while in Prague for 3 days and it... 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.
