Rilke Restaurant


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

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.

We found this restuarant through tripadvisor and the positive reviews are well deserved. A lovely authentic restaurant, it had a very warm and welcoming atmosphere with friendly and attentive staff. The food, simply beautiful. It was my favourite meal of the trip, would highly recommend!

The loveliest restaurant I’ve been to. A cute little authentic Czech restaurant with the most delicious food and best customer service! My boyfriend got the lamb shank and said it was the nicest meal he’s ever eaten in a restaurant. Highly recommend

Visited Rilke in January. We were alone in the evening. Small cozy place on the road from the center. Quiet pleasant music, old fashioned furniture. We choose national cuisine and it was really tasty. Ice cream with hot raspberries for the desert.

This is a cozy place very close to the castle, in a street off the main tourist path. We had a very nice lunch and coffee. Friendly service.

We trusted the reviews and walked out of the way to come here. Portions are large, but that’s about it. Food was really not particularly good. Service was very good, but the food was just a big flavorless disappointment. It makes me wonder if there...More

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.
