I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant, Latino-American in the front and colorful in the back. The court yard was calm and cozy. I absolutely recommend this place in the heart of Prague

Hi Gilly, thank you for your review. Looks like we need to work a little bit on our service. Generally, people are happy with us, but nobody is perfect. For the waiting time - our cooks are cooking everything fresh and if there are more...More

Came across this place by chance, so glad we did. Family run business, very welcoming, took time to explain the menu and show us pictures of what we were ordering if we weren’t sure of what to expect, fantastic Sangria (I know we were in...Prague!) however it was delicious. Would highly recommend this gem, lovely people too.More

How is this not 5 stars !!!! I know it's a limited menu (since Covid all restaurants have to do this) but on the limited menu I had the Serrano ham, the Octopus and the Prawns in a mushroom spicy soup... Which were all beautifully...seasoned and very tasty.. topped off with a glass of Rioja and a flan for dessert made the perfect lunch... The husband and wife team also knew how to make me feel very welcome... Come visitMore

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
