I certainly can't claim to have sampled every restaurant in the city, but of the 30-40 I've dined in on my various trips to Prague, U Modre Kachnicky (The Blue Duckling) has to be the best. There is a great atmosphere inside and the food - largely traditional Czech cuisine - is outstanding. It's perhaps not the cheapest restaurant, but neither is it as expensive as the quality and service could easily demand.
We were apparently not alone in our enthusiasm for the place - a hand painted list details some of the restaurant's notable regulars, ranging from top local political figures like Václav Havel and Václav Klaus to international celebrities like Sean Connery, Mia Farrow, Roger Federer and Pink Floyd! We didn't spot any of them on our visit, but we could certainly see why they would be attracted to this great place.

We had read the reviews of this restaurant and have to say it was beyond our expectations. The moment the waitress took us up the stairs and seated us in the large atmospheric room we knew we were in for a good meal. The food was exquisite and the staff tote rive but not pressurising. We would wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant as not just one of the best in Prague but one of the best we have visited for many a year Europe wide. Don't miss it.

Our hotel (The Golden Well) recommended this restaurant to us as a good place to sample traditional Czech cuisine - and we were not disappointed.

The atmosphere was great - it felt like dining in your great granny's sitting room - and there was a live piano player to boot!

My husband and I chose the Tasting Menu which was fantastic (although very filling) - but don't expect too many vegetables - lots of meat, dumplings and wonderful sauces which I believe is very authentic.

We also enjoyed some very nice local wine which was extremely reasonable - although we are au fait with French and Italian wines, we were not sure what to have so took the recommendation of our waiter which turned out to be a good choice - so again we were very pleased!

For a fantastically atmospheric, authentically Czech (?) restaurant and for great food at reasonable prices (7 course tasting menu for 2 with wine and water - around £100), you cannot go wrong with this restaurant - a truly great find and a great evening had by all!

We went for our dinner here after reading some great reviews. It definitely lived up to the expectations! To start we both had the Czech potato soup, which had some wonderful flavours. After this I had one of the duck options and my boyfriend had venison, on the waiters recommendation, both of which were cooked to perfection, so rich and filling. We didn't have any space for dessert!! Don't be put off if it is not full, when we went there were only 2 other tables filled, but the food more than made up for this!!
