We just don`t understand all the good reviews for this place. I am Norwegian and used to high prices, but the prices on this restaurant are just insane. The far cheapest on the menu is a burger, and that costs almost 20 euros, which is...close to what you have to pay in Norway. A t-bone steak costs close to 50 euros, and that is just wild (and I am not even sure if side dishes are included in that price).. The wine prices are also sky high. I think the average price for a bottle of wine is more than 150 euros, and it was difficult to find wines that costed less than 40 euros. Probably a lot of great wines, but still.. I must also mention that we asked to have the burger medium done, but it was almost totally raw. Not worth the money, not by far.More

We had the pleasure of dining at Monarch during our stay in Prague. The restaurant it self is very charming and well decorated. The service is quite good and the wine list is great ! Lots of good choices. We absolutely loved the tartare and...carpaccio starters, very tender meat and well prepared. The main courses we’re very good but maybe lacking a little “something more” in the preparation of the meat. Great desert. Over all a good dining experience in Prague but a little bit pricey. Recommended if you are a meat lover !More

We were a group of friends visiting prague for the weekend and were recommended to visit Monarch by a friend. We had the most amazing time! We shared the USDA tasting platter for 4 people and had a Chateau neuf du Pape from 2007. The...Meat was perfectly cooked and probably some of the best we've ever had! The wine was perfect with the food. Out waiter Monica was a joy and made us feel so welcome! All in all a great experience that I could recommend to anyone!More

We shared a platter for 4 even though we only were 3 but we managed to get through it anyway. The prices are a bit expensive and the service was lacking. The food was great and the restaurant is nicely designed.

This nice steakhouse is perfect for an romantic night out. Rustique decor, fantastic steaks and an impressive collection of wine. Local too. The staff is extraordinary. It's somewhat pricey here, but you'll leave full and with a smile on your face.

Great meat, perfectly cooked. Beautiful place. The service could improve a lot and you will wait quite a long time for the dishes. You will ask for a starter and they will say they will bring it along with the main courses...I don't get this...at all...you will have to keep asking for them to bring it before, and they will look at you in a bad way...even if it's called STARTER in the menu and you asked for it in the first place cuz you are hungry and want it BEFORE the main dish...as it's done in a normal restaurant. In a normal circumstance I would give less stars since service is really a big part of the food experience, but the meat and point o cooking are really great, so I am giving it 4. I recommend the prawns with mango and chili chutney too...amazingly cooked prawns.More

We went there for the dinner and ordered both steaks both regular and aged. The taste of both were bland. The meat was too fatty ( a rib-eye) even if some "marbeling " was expected. They had a terrible selection of coctails ....When I was...about to pay, I wanted to tip them but was politely told that tip is already included... In Prague, it is not to be expected and they included a tip of 10%. It was quite rude to do so,...if I want to tip somebody, I will do it by myself... It is another tourist trap in Prague to be avoided ..More
