Nice selection of various sea food. They try to apply little bit of an art to the cuisine. In general nice experience especially during summer time

I'm allergic to oysters, but its the only seafood place of good quality I saw in Prague. The waiter was very good, took me from 1 glass of Czech wine (150Kc) to 2 glasses of wine and 2 appetizers later (1200Kc) it was well worth it !

Loved this place. Went for a great dinner and that's exactly what we got. Excellent service, and amazing food. We ate oysters oysters and more oysters with lobster. This place is not cheap, but who wants cheap seafood? Not me!

Pleasant service and good wine. A tad expensive for Prague, but the experience is well worth it. Extensive selection in all sections with good oysters and delicious main courses. My nigerian prawns were succulent and the broth and bread accompanying were just as good. My friends calamari were a bombastic umami explosion. The broad menu will certainly make you content...

This place can bring all kinds of seafood that u can only imagine. Snails are tasty! Portions are very big. So, it's better to take 2 dishes on the persons (two different and it will be very enough to). Mussels are great... Local wines are good too. The service is amazing. So, for the snails, mussels, salad, three glasses of... More

My wife and I went to Zdenek's Oyster Bar in Prague last night right after an organ concert just opposite at St. James' Basilica. We saw Zdenek's as we entered and made the reservation online while waiting for the concert to begin. This is a first class oyster bar with an excellent wine list (I am a wine blogger, so... More

We were referred to this place by our hotel concierge. What a find! It is pretty expensive, but the experience was absolutely perfect. It's a small charming place, great for couples, service was outstanding and food even better. A must!

We stumbled on Z. by accident as we walked through downtown Prague looking for dinner. It turned out that the Bentley parked outside was definitely a sign. Everything that we ate here was excellent, without any qualification at all. A mussel and octopus dish had large pieces of octopus that were as tender as you could want, and the tiny... More

The concept of our kitchen can be best described as “natural”.
We build on natural tastes, the highest quality ingredients, years of proved methods and recipes, which we work with in our own way. We try new techniques and compose new meals. We collect inspiration from all over the world, as well as in nature.
Forget time and let yourselves drift away on waves of sea and decadence. It is so easy to get seduced by the highly addictive atmosphere of our restaurant!
