This was the third time that we are spending the year end in KV and Promenade, for lunch or dinner, is our kind of cantine. We are never disappointed, the service is warm, the dishes excellent and the wines excellent, local or from abroad. Yesterday we had delicious fresh oysters followed by an angus beef perfectly executed with various vegetables as side dishes accompanied with a tasteful onion sauce. A nice old Chianti wine accompanied it. As a dessert, we had crepe Suzette flambé prepared in front of us: just perfect! The price is relatively high but justified by the quality of the food. To be noted the elegance of the restaurant's furniture and internal disposition. We shall definitely come back!

This is the old school of fine dining, done right. We had a meal that would be scary in a US restaurant, but was perfect here.

We started with a locally foraged mushroom trio and an onion soup. We spent the day wandering through the woods that provided the mushrooms, but these were picked by a master forager, prepared simply as to not bury the subtle flavors, and artfully presented. The soup, which had the same ingredients as a French onion soup, was also distinct and light.

Our main was a chateaubriand for two, with several vegetables and potatoes. This was my father's favorite dish, and I don't think that I have had it in 30 years. It was delightful.

The restaurant is small — you must make a reservation — and the service is courtly without being intrusive or overbearing.

The best service we've received on our entire vacation. Granted European service isn't that great, but this place is a pleasant exception. We had the venison and it was amazing. The sides were great, especially the mashed potatoes. Highly recommended.

Very good food, many typically Czech. Excellent and attentive service with plenty of knowledgeable staff available. Many dishes flambéed at the table.

Those who read my reviews know that I rarely give out five stars. In my view too many reviewers hand out five stars for what are, in my view, three- or four-star experiences. The Hotel Promenada Restaurant, however, deserves every one of its five stars. First, the setting is small and intimate. The room is charming, traditional, and not overdone or kitschy. Second, the service is superlative -- given with a broad smile and great cheer. There is no whiff of the Soviet era here -- the staff aims to please! The headwaiter in particular deserves kudos for his good humor, knowledge and kineticism.

Most importantly, the food is excellent. Our dinner here was our first in the Czech Republic and remained our favorite regardless of where we traveled. In my view, you will have trouble finding a better restaurant in the country to combine traditional Czech cuisine with excellent ingredients and superior execution.

The best choices are those prepared tableside. The goose liver really benefitted from the flambee -- it was slightly crisp on the outside, tender and flavorful on the inside. The duck was also winner, its skin crispy and the meat suffused with deep fowl flavor. The duck gravy was superbly rich and savory -- you wanted to splash it on everything. Only the dumplings were a little dry and under-flavored. The wines by the glass were excellent accompaniments to the meal. Finally, the crepe suzette prepared tableside was far better than the average dessert crepe. it was not too sweet and had excellent notes of bitter orange and dark caramel.

All in all, this was a memorable meal and a great choice when you're in Karlovy Vary
