This outstanding restaurant belong to the AMBIENTE restaurant group, which are professionals! Cestr is located in down town of Prague, has interesting, very nice and noble interior. The restaurants butcher is located insides the restaurant. Menu offers a great variety of homemade beef dishes, homemade bread, chips, dips, everything. Also great bier and wines offered by sommelier. The art of serving is very modern and natural, personal is excellent. You will be surprised by low prices for that high value and standards! If You visit Prague and looking for a Steakhouse, this is the best choice.

My husband and I shared the Three Course Menu. We had:
1. Strong beef broth from ribs with farm egg
2. Beef neck slowly stewed in paprika with sour cream
3. Striploin: a leaner part of the back with a layer of fat
We had a choice of two potato-based sides, so we chose mashed potatoes and home made chips (crispy French fries with the skin on).

Everything was excellent. The Three Course Menu was definitely enough for two people.

When we first sat down, they brought us a free starter of brown bread with egg salad on top. It was very tasty. When we finished that, they brought us another small plate of bread. With each course, they brought us each a fresh hot bowl or plate. Everything was served in hot copper pots. We enjoyed the presentation and the attention we were given from the staff. Every time my water glass was empty, someone refilled it with the panache usually reserved for fine wine. Everyone was friendly, which is amazing for Prague, and we enjoyed the whole experience. We especially appreciate the fact that this place is 100% non-smoking!

My only suggestion is that the Three Course Menu should include a vegetable option, rather than just potatoes. It would have been nice to try the butter stewed spinach, for example. I'm not sure whether that can be substituted for an extra 10 crowns or not. The waiter was not clear on that point. I will try to get more information on my next visit, which will be as soon as possible!

Highly recommended for anyone who loves meat!!!

Recommended by "Taste of Prague" and a meat eaters dream. Excellent steaks and many more cuts than you normally don't see. Second visit with Tasting tour we had the slow cooked dishes equally excellent. Fried cheese good as was Carp starter. Good wine selection, was advised on a great Slovakian Red which went very well with the food. Service good, prices reasonable, all in all very good. Puddings are also excellent, including the beer ice cream.

Maybe they reach their transition point and should reinvest in customer focus lessons ? I let you make your own experience... Good luck....
