Very very ordinary. Home cooking not done over well. The good reviews must be because of the large portions sizes. Good staff prices ok but not worth the walk.

Great lunch here. Portions are huge and the food good enough to make you want to finish it all! Epic garlic butter with the bread. The inside is cosy and lots to take in. We had the schnitzel (on the menu as pork loin) and the baby chicken. Both recommended.

Fenominal place! Quite intimate atmosphere, very good food - we've tried 5 dishes and loved it: great venison, duck, rabbit, beef, goulash, nice apple strudel and super honey cake. Highly recommended.

Staying in the close by Design Hotel Neruda we walked past this restaurant on our way up to the monastery. It looked a charming place and being close to the hotel was ideally located for an evening meal. At night it looked even more charming and surprisingly quiet with just one other couple dining. A very warm welcome, great service... More

We tracked down this restaurant after recommendations from friends. It has moved over the river to below the castle but their clever decor makes it seem as though it has been there for ever. Bohemian beams and candle lit tables with many words of praise written on the walls. We arrived cold from the castle for lunch and enjoyed duck... More

After seeing so many good reviews, I too wanted to try this restaurant and see what the fuss is about. The restaurant itself is very quaint and cute, and has a romantic feel. The menu has a good selection of meals that all sounded better than the other. I tried the duck livers with cranberry and mint, and had the... More

We noticed the Michelin sign on the door on the way to the monastery, but the plan was to visit the monastery brewery that day. Unfortunately it was all full and the waiters were not really trying to find a place for us. So we moved back to "that door" and were positively surprised! The place is very warm and... More

Typically, I try to avoid restaurants so close to a major tourist destination. This is very close to the entrance to the Prague Castle. The food was some of the best I had eaten in Prague. I had the Crispy Duck. My wife really enjoyed the Beef Straganoff. The decor was unique and interesting. Free wifi!

Yesterday we went to eat at this beautiful restaurant. We were staying just up the road and as it was our last night in Prague and we still had to do our luggages we decided to find somewhere near and thanks to TripAdvisor we found this little restaurant just close to the hotel. During the day we booked for the... More

You will find our restaurant in the very heart of Prague, in the place which inspired the famous romantic poet R.M. Rilke. The restaurant provides a calm oasis of gastronomical experience, worth discovering, in the busy, pulsing centre of the town. We build upon the very best of Czech gastronomical tradition. Our cuisine isn't based on extravagancies, but on a straight approach to Czech meals, the freshest local ingredients and humility to the culinary profession. The best proof is the satisfaction of our customers.

Neighbourhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
