“Best meat restaurant in Prague”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

We go for business dinner regularly to Finestra. Every time we go a perfect piece of meat. The waiter brings the raw meat to the table and you select what piece of meat you want and how you want to have it prepared and you get it than as you want it. The only disadvantage is that people are allowed to smoke in the restaurant and some new rich Czech like to smoke cigars during dinner and that can be very disturbing.

“A change from typical Czech fare.”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

This restaurant is high end food that is actually cheaper than the tourist restaurants on the main square. The meal begins with a glass of sparkling wine and assortment of breads. The seafood and meats are presented on a platter so you can choose your piece. We went for the salt encrusted fish. It was wonderfully presented and filleted perfectly by our waiter. The fish was spectacular.

“Exceptional Service”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Perfectly trained team of professional waiters with extensive knowledge of all items they have on the menu. This is the kind of place, where you don't need a menu to choose from, but just to ask your waiter and he/she will very skillfully help you to set up your culinary experience.
Food was simply great, tasty and fresh. Save some space for desert as they were delicious as well.
This restaurant deserves to be in Top 5 Prague Restaurants!
We will definitely come back.
PS: Their Coffee is one of the best I've ever had!!
