The fine cuisine of the Executive Chef Tomáš Sysel is complemented with a professional, friendly staff and a gorgeous fairytale setting that is simply unforgettable. If you wish to dine like royals, then our Aquarius Restaurant is the perfect choice for you. The Aquarius Restaurant's menu offers a wide selection of home made pasta, fresh fish and seafood dishes. The fine dining establishment also offers traditional Czech dishes prepared from only the finest highest quality and traditional fresh ingredients. The thoughtfully chosen wine list features more than 160 wines from the Czech Republic, France, Italy, Spain and Chile. The Aquarius Restaurant features an exquisite interior complete with Venitian stucco, hand painted wall murals and antique furniture. Dining in the delightful inner courtyard in the summer months is an enchanting experience for our guests. From Thursdays to Saturdays our piano singer Yves Chelala will entertain the evening with his live music.

“Lovely courtyard for dinner or drinks.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

This was the first restaurant we ate in in Prague over 8 years ago and I have such happy memories of sitting in the little courtyard having dinner. It hasn't changed at all in all that time. Dinner in the restaurant is a whole different experience. If you like over the top kitsch then go for it but I would recommend the courtyard, far more romantic and quieter. The food is excellent and the service impeccable.
We only made it for drinks this time. Straight off our flight and into the covered area in the courtyard as it was pouring with rain. Many drinks later and still raining, the wonderful staff offered us umbrellas for the short walk back to our hotel. And yes! dear reader, we did return the umbrellas!!

“Could be better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Maybe they had problems in the kitchen that day, but they opened fairly late for a saturday dinner service (around 19:20, my reservation was at 19:00 and they asked me to wait in the lobby because they were not ready and never went back to tell they were open).
Staff is fun and sweet.
Meals were not very consistent. Great main course, though.

“Our last night in Prague”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

This was our last night in Beautiful Prague so decided to eat here, we were staying at the sister Hotel The Alchymist Prague Castle Suites (an amazing place). When you see this Hotel it looks very luxurious you will not be disappointed when you walk inside the interior including the restaurant is very flamboyant but a lovely place to relax and enjoy a very good meal.

Apart from the Hotel looking amazing the restaurant was exceptional, we have eaten in some top class places around the world and this sits there with the best, both décor and cuisine. It was not a busy night for them, there were two other couples and a Birthday party of 5 people that was it; but the atmosphere was really good and I think we kept them busy enough.

There was a piano player who plays at our hotel and he was surprised when we turned up and he was great, we always looked forward to hearing him play each evening of our stay with a glass or two of wine.

The food here was exceptionally good, from our starters to the sweet and of course some wonderful wine and cocktails. The service was amazing extremely helpful when we were choosing our meal and wine, plus looking after us all the way through the evening, which was a long one. Thank you.

We had a great last night in Beautiful Prague thanks to the Aquarius Restaurant, nice food, wine, great service and some nice people having a Birthday celebration.

When we are in Prague again we will definitely have a meal here again, and so should you.

Enjoy Have Fun.

“Romantic atmosphere and excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Elegant elongated room with chandeliers and gilt furnishings. Pianist unobtrusively playing. Excellent service from Maître D and Waiting staff. Onion soup in particular was exceptional if you like it thick and tasty! Lovely breads, good choice of Czech and International dishes and wines. Chocolates exceptional!! A real dining experience in Prague in a lovely secluded location yet close to all the main sites.

“Very Interesting Decor for very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

If you like unusual decor, this is the place for you. It is worth the trip just for this. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. The prices are high, but worth it for the experience. If isn't one of the top restaurants in Prague for food, but the overall experience is very good.
