“Authentic french food”
Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

Prague has so many nice restaraunts at such a good price. I visited this place for lunch and it was filled with the high end of the business class. In NY or sydney the same meal would have cost over $50 incl a glass of wine. The same high end meal only cost under €20 for per person. The service was excellent and the wild boar was awesome.

“wine and food”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

I have been there 3 times while visiting Prague and I must say that their advantage is very good atmosphere and ability to pair wine and food. Somellier is great, he really knows wines he offers and it is not so usual even in top Prague restaurants. Food is also very good, the choice is limited but they always have daily speciality.

“Veal tartar slightly smoked”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Veal tartar slightly smoked is an amazing starter in Kalina restaurant. Before the starter we were served with an amuse bouche - rolled smoked wild salmone in a green pasta with a seaweed covered with a black caviar. Then came a veal tartar under a glass cover. The veal tartar has been smoked just during a journy from the kitchen to the table. The staff is very expirienced, we got a nice suggestion for the bottle of wine. There were also a big selection of wines by glass perfectly accompanning daily dishes. Cosy atmosphere, exellent food and a nice service attract us to Kalina restaurant again. Kalina is situated down town next to the Old Town square.

“Overated!”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

I read great reviews here and elsewhere, but the place, to be honest, did nothing for me. After we were seated, it took about 15 minutes for the waiter to get our drinks order. They offer 4-5 main courses only but for very high prices. Quality of food is very good,servis not so. Ask for the table in front room!

“Very nice but a limited wine choice and slow service”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Very interesting recent establishment in Prague for fine dining. Visited several times. Cuisine sometimes great sometimes normal. Atmosphere could be a little warmer.Lightly smoked veal tartar is excellent. For establishment of this class winelist should be much more comprehensive and less overpriced
