Description: Restaurant Zofin Garden, located on Slavonic Island is a hidden oasis of calm: smack dab in the city centre, yet shaded by trees and in the shadow of the impressive neo-renaissance Zofin Palace, an architectural jewel built in honour of Archduchess Sophie, mother of Emperor Franz Josef I. with an interesting history of many concerts, weddings feasts and a variety of music and dance events, making it the cultural centre of Prague of the 19th century. Menu offers a fresh, local Czech & International food, BBQ Grill specialities in around covered garden tent in the Summer season, beautiful historical gazebo and in-door restaurant. Sunday Brunches with an unlimited buffet menu and soft drinks are a great time to experience the funniest kid’s entertainment in the city.

“New Year in Prague”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

We booked a table at the Zofin Garden to celebrate New Year. The "party night" they put on was first class. The food was a buffet and overall above average. The location was excellent - a small island on the river which meant you had a great view of the midnight fireworks display. The entertainment was good with a couple of live bands, a juggling barman and a disco. The unlimited drink as part of the price was limited in choice but we were happy with it. The staff were all cheery, enthusiastic and attentive. Overall our group all agreed it was worth the money.

“Wonderful New Year”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

We booked here to celebrate New Year. As a couple of pensioners, we were anxious that it might be difficult to get involved in the celebrations. We need not have worried.
The location is superb, on a small island in the river, so that the midnight fireworks above the town are easy to watch.
The evening was spent in a well heated and spacious marquee attached to the building.
There were groups and couple and even 1 lady on her own. There were locals and visitors from all over the world.
The buffet was superb, an unlimited choice of everything from traditional fare to fish and chips. We had a welcome bottle of local fizz, another quarter bottle each at midnight and unlimited soft drinks, local wine and beer in between.
There was a very good local trio, a disco in between sets and even a short cabaret of barman skills.
The atmosphere was infectious and inclusive.
At £100 each, it was very good value and I would thoroughly recommend to anyone in Prague for the NY.

“New Years Eve at Zofin Palace”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We had an excellent evening at Zofin Palace . A very warm welcome on arrival and were given a large bottle of champagne . Were taken to our table good position . Drinks were included in price but limited. I was ok with the beer but my wife did not like the white wine and there was no alternative unless we paid extra . There was a area where we could purchase other drinks and the price was reasonable . There was several food stations and we thought the choice was very good and food was available from 20.00 until close at 2.00 . The Band was excellent . The venue was in a good position to watch the firework display at midnight .The whole evening was well organised and we enjoyed every minute. Would recommend for people of all ages New Years Eve at Zofins

“fabulous and memorable new year...”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

We booked the zofin palace for out new years celebration's and we are glad we did! It was a fantastic night with a great party atmosphere, plentiful good food, open bar all night, bottles of sparkling wine and a fabulous property in a great location to see fireworks over the city.
Staff were happy, worked hard and really helped to ensure all guests enjoyed their night. The band who performed were very good and spoke English and Czech. Most folk enjoyed a dance although we could have done with a larger dancefloor!
The heated marquee was beautifully decorated with lights, huge balloons and party streamers. Large sparklers were avaliable alobpng with party hats, blowers etc It helped make it a real party. The chefs did well carving the delicious hams and keeping us well fed! Just as well as the open bar was also well received and we loved the great Czech beer, wine and soft drinks. Another great touch was the SmileBox photo machine were you could get photos with your loved ones and get them emailed straight to your account to share around your friends and family! A fantastic idea and gave us a lively momentous of our night...
All in all we would recommend zofin for a visit and if your lucky enough to be in Prague over new year it really is worth paying to be in a beautiful setting in a safe and warm party venue. Thanks to all at zofin for making 2014 start with a bang! :-)
