After having walked uphill towards the castle, it was great to sit down in this cosy restaurant. The guy who took care of the service was really friendly. We ordered the sirloin in cream sauce and the porc and cabbage - both with dumplings. Served heaped on cartwheel-sized plates and very tasty. We managed, however, to share a huge helping... More

This was the first of the 3 restaurants, and the ambience, food, wine and service were excellent. Also extremely good value. We decided to walk from the Old Town to the restaurant (in the Little Town, just below the Castle) and the last bit was decidedly uphill - at the end of a good mile and a half. No problem... More

We usually don't go back to the same restaurants when on holiday, we like to try new things. But, we enjoyed our lunch so much we decided to go back for dinner the following day. This little restaurant manages the perfect balance between being classy, but staying cosy, welcoming and not pretentious. The service is perfectly pitched, many restaurants in... More

We had an excellent, authentic Czech meal with a nice beer in a very nice atmosphere. it is a small restaurant that is away from the tourist area, so we had a quiet dinner with top notch food and service.

Can't fault this place. We really liked the cosy atmosphere. It is traditional local food. Service was friendly and portion sizes plentiful. Lots of GF options too. I had the pork medallions in mustard sauce and hubby had the duck. Both were really good and the prices were reasonable. It's a short walk from Questenberk, so if you are staying... More

A real fine - wonderful food and excellent hospitality. Menu provided a range of food included traditional food. Tonight they offered us a taste of a dessert - apple strudel; certainly the best I have eaten in a restaurant. Be aware you may need to book if eating after 7.45pm but well worth it

We were complete gluttons, mopping up every bit of the outstanding grilled pork with peppercorn sauce and roasted deer steak with potato pancake. It was completely delicious. It's a small place and we couldn't get a table the first night we tried but tonight it was quite empty at 7 pm even though all the tables were reserved- maybe it... More

Just around the corner from our hotel, excellent traditional Czech food. Fabulous good hearty food. Nothing fancy. Lovely romantic little place but would be fine also for groups. Good value. Wish we had gone back again the next night! Highly recommend the goulash !

Thank jmayle999

You will find our restaurant in the very heart of Prague, in the place which inspired the famous romantic poet R.M. Rilke. The restaurant provides a calm oasis of gastronomical experience, worth discovering, in the busy, pulsing centre of the town. We build upon the very best of Czech gastronomical tradition. Our cuisine isn't based on extravagancies, but on a straight approach to Czech meals, the freshest local ingredients and humility to the culinary profession. The best proof is the satisfaction of our customers.

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
