Having tried a couple of Czech restaurants where the food was average, my wife and I wanted something a bit special. The entrance to the restaurant is off Wenceslas Square in an arcade. It was very busy when we arrived but the staff managed to squeeze us in by laying another table and by dragging chairs from other areas. We... More

We did eat this evening in that restaurant. The food was ok, not great but just ok, the ambiance was nice, but the service was real under the level. And what happened at the end was really crazy, the waiter asked me for tips and he didn't give me the space to decide. And when I added some he didn't... More

Outside aperiance and inside interior design are promising more than food and staff. Disappointed. I would only recommend lentil soup. A meat was dry.

The place is nice inside, clean, and good decor. One of the waiters was rude and simply was inattentive. We eventually approached and received better service from another waiter. Food is medium. Not really Lebanese. Meat was not soft and Salmon had a soft pink center and could use a few more minutes of cooking. Food quantity is also on... More

Wow we went for lunch and it was the first time either of us have had Lebanese food and were surprised at the variety of amazing flavours. We had the meal for one each, thinking it was enough believe me it was enough for 2 people. First course consisted of little pasties - lamb, cheese and spinach. Picked veg cold... More

I visited the place some days ago and I strongly RECOMMEND NOT TO GO. Here’s why: • Upon our arrival, we were received by a rude waiter who was irritated for coming 45 mins before the restaurant would close- although any professional and decent restaurant could have apologised that the kitchen had closed already and there wouldn’t be any hard...

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.
