Let's start by saying I would not be giving this restaurant 5 stars in, say, Paris or Rome, but it was a big improvement on most of the meals we ate in Prague and we enjoyed both meals we ate here. The dining room is lovely, with an ancient painted ceiling (redone in 1937) and classical furniture. All a tiny bit shabby - old cutlery, a fraying tablecloth, but clean and tidy. On our first trip we ordered choices from the 3-course lunch special (though it was already 3 p.m.). I started with an excellent cream of spinach soup, and followed up with a crisp, fresh salad with a tasty dressing and a very good duck confit with red cabbage and (over-) roast potatoes. My wife started with the salad, then the duck, then a perfectly adequate tarte tatin. We drank the house cabernet moravia (a local variant of cabernet franc) and were impressed by it. Our second trip was in the evening, and we both started with goat cheese on a bed of beetroot (a super combination, to my surprise). I followed up with lamb shank and my wife with fish. The latter was very good, but my well-cooked lamb was accompanied by a rather stodgy gravy, the only real disappointment at U Maliru. We again drank the cabernet moravia, having started with with a tasty house veltliner, also from Moravia. The service was excellent on both visits. Our lunch cost 1500 Koruna for 2, our evening meal a little more, so this is a fairly expensive restaurant by Prague standards.
