Just back from a fab few days in Prague for my husband's 50th. Everything was brilliant except for our evening at Kampa Park. We booked on line for his actual birthday meal (after ballet at the State Opera) and then checked that they had received the booking during our first day in Prague. Sure enough, they had, including my request for the best table in the house as it was a special birthday so we were very excited and very much looking forward to it.
On arrival, we were whisked through the kitchens to a table right by the window looking at the Charles Bridge - excellent. However, the rest of the room was occupied by 2 tables of what could only be described as the German mafia! One large table of important black suits and one small table of chain-smoking bodyguard "heavies" (unfortunately right next to ours). Every time one of the suits went to th loo, it was guarded by the heavies until he was finished. The smoke was unbearable. We asked to change tables as we felt very uneasy and uncomfortable but there were none available.
As for the food, I would give 7/10. I ordered the tomato "Tarte tatin" to start which was not a tarte tatin at all but a cold shortcrust pastry case with tomatoes inside. My husband had the scallops which were good. Rack of lamb and venison also good. Presentation and service were excellent and they even gave us a complimentary "crema catalana" with a candle in it to mark his birthday!
If anyone is looking for a truly fab meal, we recommend the restaurant at the Alchymist Hotel (next to the American Embassy) - food there was exquisite!
