We slightly ended up in Kalina by accident. We were staying in Prague for the first time and asked the hotel to make some recommendations, of which Kalina was not one. However, a friend had recommended a restaurant that he thought was called Kalina on the river, and so we booked it!
Clearly nowhere near the river and hardly inspiring when you walk in, but that was the last thing that was in any way disappointing. The food and service are almost faultless - staff are attentive, but not overly so, and the delivery of each dish is exceptional. I started with Celeriac Soup with Lobster Ravioli, which I can honestly say as a chef was one of the best thing I have ever eaten. The Tournedos were faultless and the Czech Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir were excellent choices by the sommelier and made a refreshing and good value alternative to what appeared to be a good selection of European wines.
There are evidently many very, very good restaurants in Prague, but if you want something out of the top drawer then I would strongly recommend that you include Kalina on your culinary tour, and at £80 for two including two courses, wines and a couple of aperitifs, pretty good value too.
