Quiet mid week visit in January. Absolutely delicious and great service. Had the king prawns to start followed by sea bass, fish was perfect, tasty and fresh with a nice side salad. Had a house white which was crisp and fruity.

Perfect atmosphere, perfect service and the best fish we have tasted in the Czech Republic (and also at half the price you will find in and around Prague)! The children were also very happy with their delicious pasta dishes. Highly recommended!

Very little portions. On the a la carte it says 300 grams but both me and a friend had just maybe max 80 grams of meat or fish. The taste was good but the portion as main dish was definitely not enough.More

We have visited this restaurant twice and truly enjoyed it. Brought our friends with us who loved the food and had a great experience as well so glad that we did please them as well :) Love the location and their patio. Staff is really...friendly and their English level was also good so no problem to order if you don't speak Czech. The only little bit negative thing for us is that we didn't realize the weekly menu was more expensive during the evening but that was our mistake as we didn't read the notes at the bottom of the menu. Overall great, we will definitely come back during some lovely sunny day.More

We had such a beautiful time at restaurant Tefiti last Sunday. Me and my friend, we both wanted to visit place in the center of town to have great food with beautiful view and good service also. We made a reservation before. They prepared one...table outside and one inside, very good service. Tables were set very nice. For drink, we tried Poliane sekt, waitress told us some informations about this sekt and it tasted so good. In Tefiti, there is great offer of very good proseccos (higher class also), italian or local wines too. For dinner, we wanted to try some fresh fish. They offer fresh fishes- orata or spigola. You can have it with typical italian bread focaccia or fresh salad or grilled vegetable or roasted potatoes etc. Fish can be prepared whole or without bones. They made it on grill. The dinner was delicious. After main meal, we had tried espresso- great coffee (Pavin, 100% robusta). We ordered desserts also- tiramisu-very tasty and cake from belgian chocolate with little bit of Jack Daniels whisky- this one was foodporn:-) We recommented this restaurant for romantic dinner for two, family dinner, lunch with friends etc. Thank you Tefiti for having such a great time here.More

Hello Antoniagreek, thank you for your review. Your medium baked meat was "tagliata di vitello" , so veal meat is still more light than some kind of beef meat like tenderloin, sirlon ecc. But thank you and happy new year! A.Otman

Pleasantly surprised by this Italian place. I had chicken with creamy spinach form weekly menu for lunch. It was very good and the size of the portion was more than enough for me. Staff has a lot of things to do and many customers to...serve. The waitress waiting my table was fast, but still very pleasant. As a customer, you are listening to some Italian radio that is playing at the place the whole. It's not too loud so it didn't bother me even though I didn't understand. What I liked a lot were black and white pictures from old Brno hanging on the walls. Possible to pay with a card, including Sodexo.More
