Having arrived in the afternoon at Hotel Pod Vezi, with the snow falling, I decided to "eat in".
What a choice. I have had some dang good meals on this trip, but this blew them out of the water.
Started with goulash soup served in a small loaf of bread. My first taste of true goulash- yum! Main of sirloin in vegetable cream sauce with dumplings, creme fraiche and cranberries! Sounds like a weird combo, but boy did it work. I washed it down with the sommeliers recommendation of Malbec. Not usually my favourite wine, it was spot on. I really didn't need anything else to eat, but when the waiter offered dessert, I couldn't resist. He suggested the cheesecake, good call. So, my first meal in Prague was brilliant.
The restaurant is intimate, beautifully appointed and the staff are really friendly and expert in their service.
Subsequently I ate at several great places, but returned to Restaurant Pod Vezi for dinner on my last night in Prague. They managed to better my first night!
This time I went for Goose liver terrine as an entre , delicious. I followed it with goulash (wow), and a dessert of flambe crepe with oranges and pistachio ice cream. The dessert tasted amazing, but the theatrics of the flambe at the table was magic.
So two brilliant meals served by great staff.
While in Prague I ate at Francouzska's, at the Municipal House. A real fine dining experience, however the food did not match Pod Vezi.
I also ate at Tri Stoleti where the meal was brilliant and the setting lovely, however it lacked the detail in service that Pod Vezi has.
Yep, I have no doubt that, to date, I have had two of the best meals on this trip at Restaurant Pod Vezi.
It is not the cheapest feed in Prague, but compared to the rest of Europe and for the quality, I don't reckon you can do better!
This is a great place and I don't think should be missed if you are in Prague.
Ooops, forgot to mention the location. Right next to the Charles Bridge, I guess I got blase, staying at the hotel :-)
Do not miss this reataurant or the hotel.
