We did a trike tour and saw this restaurant on the same street. He said it was good, so we took a chance and stopped in. I'm glad we did, it was delicious. Everything seemed fresh and handmade. I'd go again if we return to...Prague.More

We stumbled upon this restaurant and had some of the best food. We were there shortly after indoor dining was allowed again. Guatemalan tortillas, sangria, an extremely thoughtful proprietor, a cook with that magic je ne sais quoi---can't wait to go back. Highly recommend. Also...great for gluten-free food.More

We found something for the entire family 2-85 years old to enjoy. It was a great break from the crowded streets, service was a little slow but the food and atmosphere were worth it.

We visited for lunch after a trip to Prague Castle. It was a little hard to find because of road construction in the area, and it wasn't obvious that the restaurant was even open. It was clear the construction was hurting their business because there...were not many patrons. The waitress (from Cuba) was very friendly, and we had tapas as good as we've had in Spain. Pulpo, tortilla, anchovies, papas -- all very fresh and seasoned perfectly. Reasonable prices, too, for the quality of food.More

We stumbled upon this restaurant as we love Spanish food and wanted a decent bottle of wine - had some olives and some brushetta and a lovely bottle of wine (recommended by the waitress at lunch and promised to come back that evening - which...we did, had tapas and the same bottle of wine, which was all declicous. Unfortunately, we decided to come back for our evening meal a couple of nights later - the waitress had told us we didnt need to book - we walked in (party of 2) there was one table of 2 and a table of 8 I think - the waiter saw us after a while and made a cutting throat gesture - we weren't sure what that meant so stayed where we were - he then after a couple of minutes shouted across the restuarant, that he had two big parties in an basically he couldn't serve us - we were quite shocked at the way he turned us away and felt that if the same waitress had been there, she would have acted differently - to say we were disappointed was an understatement but that doesnt take away the fact that food we had there was awesome - just catch them on a good day or maybe book after allMore
