Lovely riverside restaurant. Excellent food and wine. The Trout Chips starter w/Lime Mayo is a winner. Re-opening menu still doesn’t have full selection, but excellent nonetheless!

Across the river from our hotel, so a perfect location for a stroll over the bridge to this charming restaurant. We were welcomed warmly and the restaurant was quiet, it being mid week. We were well looked after and chose a French bottle of red...as we waited our food. The presentation was outstanding. The duck and beef were delicious as were the accompanying vegetables and sauces. We shared 'the swan' for dessert, a mousse in the form of a swan! We look forward to a return visit, next time our travels take us back to Prague. Highly recommended.More

After a long walk and across the bridge taking in the scenery we chanced upon this gallery restaurant. There was a lovely terrace along the river bank. The waitresses were very friendly and the food good. Service was a little slow because it was such...a nice day and not enough staff. Pleasant experience and relaxingMore

Very attentive staff for our party of 14 persons. Great view of the river in nicely decorated restaurant. Tender meat and great beer (Narodni pivovar). We highly recommend this place so close to central Prague.

Deserved to be much busier. (Not the Asian restaurant of other reviews). A really excellent meal, a little more expensive than "generic" Czech food (hearty but sometimes lacking in finesse) found in the town centres, but so much more. Excellent rillette and paté to start,...followed by the house signature rabbit dish, which was moist, tasty and filling, with a fabulously rich jus. All this was washed down with a reasonably priced local riesling that cut through with a pleasingly creamy acidity. Dessert was a tough call, so we ordered the chocolate tart, and the "swan". The chocolate was pastry-less and slightly cakey in texture, but served with an excellent dark chocolate cream, and assorted fruits. The Swan was a choux creation filled with caramel chantilly and a caramel sauce. Not for those of a non-sweet tooth, but a delicious way to end, followed by coffee. The service was excellent, following the local custom of removing your plate once it is finished with rather than waiting, but always with a "please may I?" rather than demanding it as soon as the last mouthful is eaten. There was also engaging banter regarding our choice of dessert: the two waiting staff preferred one each, and have a competition going, so our diplomacy at the end wasn't appreciated! All in all, an excellent meal, and with three courses, coffee and wine included, excellent value for a fab meal in a beautiful setting.More

We attended this venue for a large evening party. Apparently it was once a swimming pool which probably explains the unusual lay out. We enjoyed a buffet supper which was good but possibly set to a budget. Waiting staff were friendly and helpful. The outside...tables were set under large parasols which was handy as it rained. There were blankets supplied too. River cruise boats passed by. There was space for dancing to the lively disco music. All in all, a fun evening.More

We found this delightful riverside restaurant by accident on our first visit to Prague in August, 2019. The food was delicious and its presentation on copper ware was a nice touch. The food was very reasonably priced; dinner for four including drinks and desert came...to 2280 Kc or about 91 euros. Their Lion beer, brewed on-site, was very good. The young wait staff treated us like royalty. The restaurant is new and apparently not well known as ours was one of the few tables with customers that evening. We highly recommend it.More

This restaurant was just open after general reconstruction under new management. Last Saturday, before our departure back to US, we invited several friends there for lunch. We ordered most appetizers, soups and main courses and I can tell you one word - DELICIOUS!!! Home-made spreads...with bread, Onion soup, Beef Bourguignon, Confit duck leg, Leg of rabbit, Sauté potato gnocchi and much more, everything was served perfectly and tasted just wonderful! It was so surprising we asked our server to meet the chef. He came to greet us and introduce himself. We realized, that this young sympathetic man graduated ftom one of the world most prestige culinary school - Paul Bocuse Institut in France. So I have a message for Michelin Guide - don't wait and come to taste the food here!More

Expected to find a Thai restaurant here as per Tripdadvisor, but instead we found a newly opened fine dining restaurant with awesome local dishes and great cocktails on the menu. Cooked and prepared to perfection, we had a great time and paid a more than...reasonable price. Can highly recommend and is a hidden gem in Prague.More

Went to this restaurant with my father during our holiday to Prague in the summer for a treat. It definitely did not disappoint. The food was stunning and very flavoursome, but the best part was the setting - literally on the river where you could...watch the boats go by as well as the sunset. We stayed for a couple of hours due to the gorgeous setting and the peacefulness too. Highly recommend for a romantic meal with great picture opportunities and fab food!More

My partner rang to book a table for our last night in Prague, we saw this place on one of the river cruises and thought it would be the perfect place to end our trip on the waterfront with the view of the city lights....We arrived and one of the staff showed us to our table which was a lovely window table over looking the Vltava river. The menu has something for everyone I think. We had starters, the dumpling are a must. However the portions are quite big so I really struggled to even finish 1/4 of my main when it came which is a real shame because it was delicious and flavoursome. My partner had the crab and polished off the lot he said it was cooked perfectly. As we read this was one of the best Thai restaurants in Prague we were pleasantly surprised by the bill. 2 starts, 2 mains, 3 drinks all of which was amazing food. Totalled 1432czk which worked out at being around £49. Staff were friendly and attentive. We would recommend a visit here.More

This restaurant is tucked away from the hustle and bustle. We found this place on our last night in Prague and was the romantic, excellent service filled dinner that dreams are made of. The food was delicious, and a very good price for the quality...and quantity. Beer is also cheap. There were only two waiters working when we entered and they had the most amazing manners and very ontop of everything despite being busy. I haven't even mentioned the views!!! 10/10 experienceMore

We noticed this restaurant whilst on a boat trip along the river, and decided to eat there. It was very quiet when we dined there and the views were spectacular as the sun set. We asked about several items on the menu and ordered one...with less chilli, the other curry was very hot, delicious! I've read reviews about the service- but we had good service on the night we were there. You may need to book to get a waterside table and I imagine the outdoor dining is lovely in the summer.More
