I have to say, when you find a quality fishing spot, there's a little reluctance to share the review with others. Unfortunately, I have to say THIS WAS THE BEST RESTAURANT we dined at in Prague. So much so, we returned the following evening to...enjoy the relaxing ambience, a table right in front of the fire and the service was outstanding. The young man pouring beers was also super professional and helpful with the menu. The steak dish was lovely. In fact, it was all of a high standard, the Czech table wine (red) was lovely and we had an experience which will be remembered. Highly recommended.More

Excellent Czech food experience. The staff was lovely and very welcoming. I do strongly suggest evening time as closely located to the castle for a nice evening view of the city

Rude woman did not want to seat us, as it was full and then two came after us and sat down. Whatever reason, she was not polite. Glad we did not go in, the atmosphere was awkward.More

Hi, thank you for choosing our place! We are really sorry you were not seated and left disappointed. We were fully booked that day. It’s always better to make a phone call or drop by and do a reservation at least one day in advance....More

Great restaurant only a short walk away from Prague Castle. It was our first real taste of Czech food, and we were blown away with how great the food, drink and service was. They went out their to squeeze us in, so might be worth...reserving in advance! Also very good with my allergies.More

A great find for us, we visited twice during our stay in Prague for the very good local food and wine. Would highly recommend, especially being more out of the way of the tourist hot-spots. Also, a very reasonable price and good service.

Fabulous atmosphere, lovely staff and decent sized plates of traditional Czech cuisine, we would highly recommend the pork knuckle and the roast duck, in fact the duck would win over and over, it’s delicious. Good selection of wine and beer to go with the food....We loved it so much we went back a second time, we would highly recommend this wonderful place! Also, you need to book for evening meals, sometimes they can squeeze you in but they turned a lot of walk-ins away (just shows how good this place is).More

Long wait and cold food!! The two stars are only there because the ambience was nice and the staff too. But I‘ve never had such a watery soup (the pumpkin soup) and the flavor was also not really there. I’m really disappointed because the restaurant...had such a good review but I can’t support this opinion!!More

Best food myself and partner have ever tasted!!Great place in heart of town just down main lane from castle. Very cosy and fantastic selection of food and drink. When we say it’s best food we’ve ever tasted we mean it, never felt so satisfied after...a 3 course meal. The portion sizes are great and the food was just melt in the mouth. The staff were friendly and quick service. The fact it was only around £50 for 2 people 3 courses and a few drinks made it better!!More

Very cozy place in the heart of Prague, tasty Czech cousine with a variety of meals and really big portions for a decent price:) Good choice of Czech beer and wines from local wine cellers. On top of that tasty deset (Pana Cota specially recommended)...and Italian coffee. Definitely worth trying!More

Food left mixed impression (pork steak and pumpkin soup were okay, but the Caesar wasn’t good at all) but staff’s attitude towards visitors’ belongings was bad. We had forgotten an antiseptic flask and when we came back for it the next day, staff member said...they just have put it in the trash. C’mon, keeping forgotten things for at least a day or two is simply good manners. Well, it seems if you accidentally forget your keys, sunglasses or AirPods there, they might do the same thing with no second thought.More
