Not impressed at all. Yes, the starters were fun but mains were very very ordinary. Braised beef cheeks are not inventive, for example. Duck breast can be had in many an average restaurant and let's be honest, it's easy to cook at home. Eating out...at this level - and this price - should be about quality and precision that is impossible to do yourself. Frankly, very little there was. Gloriously overpriced too. Even an average bottle of French Chablis was about £70. And that was by no means the most expensive bottle on the menu. I left feeling a little cheated because I had been led to believe it was brilliant. It isn't.More

Having experienced a great evening at this restaurant a few years ago, my partner was keen to come back to this place again. However, we were left bitterly disappointed on this occasion. Though the waiter was not unpleasant, we didn't feel particularly welcome. Even when...we arrived, there was no one there to greet us when we entered and we stood waiting for a short while until the waiter appeared from an adjoining room. We were also quite surprised when the waiter came to take our order, and simply came to our table and said "What do you want?" in quite a transactional fashion. It's really not the service you expect at a fine dining restaurant. Onto the food, we received a little mushroom cappuccino amuse bouche, which was pleasant. For the starter, I had the Eggs 63 and my partner had the Tuna Tartare. The Eggs 63 had a nice flavour but was nothing special, and was completely overpriced at 495czk. It's worth mentioning that it is advertised on the website at 395czk, and was also advertised on the specials board as 595czk, so the pricing is clearly all over the place. For the main, we both had duck breast. We were asked how we wanted this cooked, and requested medium. As you can see from the picture, it arrived cooked rare. I queried this with the waiter, who told me the reason for this was that "this is how it's served in France for medium". Having lived in France, I assured him that this was not the case, and clearly, the meat was rare. He took the meat back to the kitchen and a few minutes later, the plates returned and it actually was quite tasty - though again completely overpriced at 695czk (I recently paid around the same price for a sublime magret de canard at one of the best restaurants in Bordeaux, for context). This item is also another which is listed at a different price on the website (595czk). I think one of the main issues with the restaurant is a lack of communication. The waiter could quite simply have informed us that they cook their duck rather rare for medium when we ordered. In such a place, and especially given the restaurant was empty, I would probably have expected the chef to come out and justify how the meat was cooked after we had said we weren't happy, if they felt it was indeed medium (though it clearly wasn't). For tourists, it's worth noting that the prices for the food here are expensive for Prague, and for that you would of course expect a fine dining experience with sublime food and fantastic service. This restaurant, unfortunately, falls short, and we have experienced better fine dining experiences here for around the same price and even cheaper too. Also note, the bathroom hand tap is extremely hot and the temperature would not change.More

My husband and I loved everything about this restaurant which made the last night of our first trip to Prague very enjoyable. The wine list is extensive, the service is excellent and accommodating, and the food is worthy of at least one Michelin star. It’s...been difficult to find good steaks in Europe, but according to my husband, he found it here! Be sure to make a reservation here if you are in Prague.More

When my husband and I arrived in Prague for our third visit together, we were expecting the usual heavy and boring Czech food. Staying in the touristy Old Town for the first time has provided us easy access to some very fine dining at affordable...prices. What a surprise! At Pot au Feu we dined in lovely surroundings with gracious hosts/servers and the finest dining we have experienced in Prague, and there have been excellent others. We felt very welcome and the host accommodated our seating arrangement since my husband is hard of hearing. The back wine area is very cozy and comfortable. A cauliflower veloute amuse bouche started with excellent French bread to start. We chose the tuna tartare and pumpkin veloute next, both excellent. The piece de resistance came next, the house speciality of Anjou pigeon with truffles and truffle sauce with some vegetables. Quite an amazing dinner. We could not even find room for the crepes Suzettes which were on the dessert menu. Do not miss the small and fabulous restaurant if you like really fine dining and welcoming atmosphere.More

Had the taste menu and it tasted great and could hardly finish it all. They serve French food. Considering the place has a Michelin plate the price is quite fair for what you get.

A fantastic surprise, perfect dishes after a few disappointments in Austria. We had the calf liver, and rib eye steak, both were tender tasty and melted in the mouth. So called "simple dishes" but real delicacies. The Chef Jan Kracik generates a real gastronomic experience...that is very hard to match. We shall come back as soon as we can.More

Before leaving Prague, we looked for a nice restaurant for lunch. We found Pot au Feu. It was mid-week and off season but the welcome, food, wine and service was top class. The only regret is that we did not find the restaurant earlier as...we would have liked to return for another meal. The location is a very short walk from Old Town Square so it is so easy to get there at any time and there is no excuse for missing a real treat!More

Wow! What a wonderful place. The owner was so friendly and helpful as we hadn’t booked a table but he managed to put tables together for our party. The restaurant is beautiful. The food is a true delight. We’ve not eaten in a french restaurant...before but the fantastic owner helped us with our menu choices and wine to match the food. What can I say but our meal was exquisite! The waitress who also looked after us was brilliant. I’m just sorry I didn’t get their names for a personal mention. The place was frequented by lots of French people so that says everything doesn’t it. Thank you for a great night.More

We popped in here as the weather was cold and the restaurant close to our hotel, fortunately Jan found us a table. Wow, this seemingly unassuming little place is amazing. We were welcomed and Jan talked us through three different menu options and a board...full of specials. To say we were spoiled for choice is an understatement. We were treated to some delicious canapés and amuse bouches. I had foie gras, and venison, which was cooked perfectly and served with a generous helping of truffle. My husband had a poached egg dish that was served with a mushroom base and then duck with truffle. The plates looked and tasted Michelin star standard. I was served Jan’s choice of red wines with each of my dishes which went beautifully and my husband had a very nice non-alcoholic blush wine. We almost said no to desserts as we were full, but seeing them come out for another table meant they were too hard to resist. My husband polished off a wonderful dark chocolate torte and I had crepe suzette. We loved it so much we have booked to go back for our final dinner of this trip the day after tomorrow. You also need to visit the loo with its heated seat and space age control panel. Book your table here and don’t miss out. This place is a real gemMore

Maybe because not as many people visit or review but that number doesn't reflect the quality and service as it's an excellent restaurant
