We came for a belated Valentine's/birthday dinner. We were greeted warmly and offered our pick of tables, as it was still early. Chef Steven personally offered us his recommendations and shared the specials not yet on the menu. We started with the beet salad and scallops. Both were excellent. The scallops were cooked to perfection, and the dressing on the... More

Probably have had the second-best meal in Prague in this place (out of 50-80 meals). The combination of interesting and delicious food (far from traditional Czech), good wine and excellent service, making you feel very much at home, is a killer. Need to come back....

First and foremost - the food is excellent! It was so good, we didn't notice and/or bother to point out that the waiter had got it completely wrong. How can it go so wrong between taking the order and passing it to the kitchen??? Somehow he turned the swordfish we ordered into salmon, and the mashed potato side became roast... More

I was taken to this restaurant by my partner for my birthday dinner. We were not disappointed, although there were several things that were on the menu and wine list that, when we asked for them, were not available. Having said that, the alternatives were superb. Unusually, both myself and my other half chose the same starter, main and dessert.... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our Airbnb owner. The meal was average, something I would eat in my local cafe. The service was suboptimal considering we were the only people in the restaurant. Nothing proactive, eg, when bread ran out we had to ask for more, wine was brought in glasses already poured and no discussion of what the... More

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theatres. National Theatre near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
