This place might be my favourite dining experience (maybe ever)? Starting from my email interactions before going, they replied to emails fast and when I mentioned it was my friends birthday they offered us a table with a castle view and for my friends name...so they could write her a birthday card, that’s so thoughtful! The food was genuinely so nice, we even had a little prawn snack to start with as a free token from the chef. The service was so personal and professional. The ambience was lovely, no loud music, no gimmicks, it felt like everyone in there was almost whispering (sounds weird, but it was all so calming and intimate). I can’t exaggerate how much I recommend this place. I’m so grateful to have been here!More

If you are looking for a unique, romantic setting with impeccable service and good authentic czech food, look no further. We booked Zvonice prior to our trip, explaining it was to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We were given a perfect table on the 8th...floor. It had stunning views, perfect lighting, felt very private and romantic. We were greeted with a card on our table congratulating us on our special day, which was a lovely touch, followed by a complimentary amuse bouche. Staff were attentive but not intrusive. Everything we ordered was high quality, well cooked, and delicious. Admittedly this is not a cheap restaurant, but its clear on the website menu what the prices are. I think previous reviewers saying it did not represent good value are missing the point that this is a small restaurant, with very limited covers available per sitting, so of course they need to charge more to be profitable. Its a truly unique and beautiful building that must have had high set up costs and will be costly to maintain. You aren't just paying for the food, you are paying for experienced staff and a unique and exclusive experience. My only comment would be that the cheapest bottle of red on the wine list was a rather extortionate £53, which is too high in my opinion. We therefore stuck to soft drinks and beer! Payment in cash gave a welcome 20% discount. It's a special meal that will stick in my memory for years to come and I would go again in a heartbeat. Thank you to the two lovely staff who served us that evening, we left feeling relaxed, full of good food, and well looked after.More

Lovely place but the food was not good the night we were there. They got the order wrong and the food was not up to standard. And it was very expensive. GK

We were drawn to Restaurant Zvonice by its fantastic location and made sure to book a reservation ahead of our trip. Upon arrival, we were immediately taken by the restaurant's stunning ambiance, which promised an exceptional dining experience. The restaurant sits in a unique and...charming setting, which added a lot of expectations to our visit. However, while the ambiance delivered, the pricing of the menu items gave us pause. We found the menus to be considerably overpriced, which set a high bar for the quality and execution of the meal. On a positive note, the quality of the meat served was undeniable. It was clear that high-quality ingredients were used, and the preparation of the meat itself was commendable. However, the execution of other elements on the plate, such as the asparagus, was disappointing. The temperature and preparation of these sides did not meet the standard set by the main dish, detracting significantly from the overall dining experience. In reflection, while the ambiance of Restaurant Zvonice and the quality of certain ingredients were highlights, the value proposition was lacking. The disparity between price and quality, especially regarding the preparation and presentation of the entire meal, left us feeling that the price-quality ratio was not balanced.More

Had an incredibly special meal here celebrating my boyfriend’s 30th birthday. Our waiter (we didn’t get his name unfortunately, but was working 27/01) was so accommodating, friendly and went the extra mile. We had a gorgeous table under the original 16th century bell, complimentary champagne...and starter, as well as a congratulatory card and candle in our dessert. The mains are on the expensive end of the spectrum, but the food is delicious, and you get much bigger portions than any michelin starred restaurants. We had the venison which was cooked to perfection, and the salmon, which was large and filling The atmos is cosy and romantic, and the tower itself is steeped in history. 11/10 recommend.More

What a special place. Holiday Bohemian Menu was really special, meat forward though. Each of 5 courses was exceptional spanning over 3 hours. Waiter was friendly and made the experience special.

We absolutely love everything from this place: from the foods, drinks, service, ambiance, and stunning interior.. We had one of the best trout fish ever and couldnt get enough with the complimentary shrimp starter.. Every single dishes we had is above and beyond our expectation...- its so well balance, not over powering but yet not bland as well.. And the service is extra ordinary.. Yahim and another gentleman (I forgot his name) were helping us and I love how they gave recommendations based on our preferrence.. And at the end, they gave us a surprise which was an unforgettable little tour to the top of the tower.. Above all, the price is surprisingly very affordable. You might have to spent at least a good $800 for this kind of dining experiene in LA for 2 persons.. And this place charge less than 1/3 of what you will pay in LA.. Definitely a must place to go!!!More

We had a table booked for my wifes 50th. They told me in advance they would prepare a dessert and sing happy birthday to her on the night. On the night of our meal we were seated in quite an uncomfortable tight spot near the...actual bell in the tower with the shutters to our left and not much room to move or eat and low beams above us. We arrived at 7.30pm and did not get our meal until 8.40pm. Considering they knew weeks in advance and told us they would have a dessert prepared, we were not served it until 9.50pm. Groups of 4 and 5 had come in after us, eaten 3 courses and left before we even got our dessert. I think we actually left the restaurant around 11pm. We payed nearly £150.00 for 2 courses , 1 beer and half a bottle of wine. Dont get me wrong the food was delicious but the service for what we payed was bad. We had previously eaten at another hotel restaurant for a 3rd of the price for equally nice food but far better service.More

This dining establishment in Prague had a strong presence on the recommended list, so we decided to make a dinner reservation there. Based on our experience at the restaurant, we found the atmosphere to be pleasant, and the staff were very attentive and service-oriented. However,...we were somewhat disappointed with the food, which, despite the high prices, was rather average in quality. Appetizers started at a minimum of 25 euros, and main courses were not available for less than 50 euros, which we believed to be a significant overpricing in relation to the quality of the meals. The prices for beverages were also quite high, with minimum prices of 150 euros for a bottle of wine and 8 euros for a 0.33-liter beer. This made the total cost of the meal significantly higher than what we had expected. While we appreciated the excellent service and ambiance, we couldn't help but feel that this place was a bit too expensive for what it delivered in terms of food and drinks.More

The novelty location - a cramped space at the top of one of Prague's old bell towers - is used to justify sky high prices. The restaurant is spread over two floors intersected with wooden beams. There are no views from the tables. The menu...is the size and weight of a small rodent. The food comes up from the bowels of the tower on a dumb waiter. It was luke warm and it took two hours to serve two drab, overpriced courses. The wine cost 60 euros and yet was so bad we couldn't finish it. An over-priced tourist trap aimed at customers who won't return.More

Tomash(sp?) was an amazing waiter and was very fun to talk to. Amazing ambiance and wonderful food. My wife said the duck was the best she has ever had. I had the venison, and it was delicious. Don't hesitate, book early, and enjoy this 500...year old bell tower. The restaurant is on the 7th and 8th floor. 8th floor had the best view of the steeples, but the 7th had the 500 year old bell. The recommended Moravino cab sauv went really well with dinner.More

I can't write anything about the food as the waiter ignored us for 20 minutes and we had to leave as our eight year old daughter was tired and wanted to finally sit down somewhere and get a real Czech dessert. The restaurant was empty,...only one table was occupied. It was the first time in such a terrible situation. Very disappointed.

It was very busy when we dined there in April I so I would recommend making a reservation. There is no dress code and jeans should be ok. It is a great ambiance and the food even better.
