We read about this restaurant in Rick Steves' Prague guidebook and were surprised by both the brilliant view and the spotty service. The waiters didn't greet us, frequently forgot us for long periods of time, and took a very long time to bring our food with maybe only a couple other tables occupied. That's what put me off most, not to mention the priciness.

The view is breathtaking, and we hung out there from 6-9pm to watch the sun set and the city lights go up. I would've given this place fewer stars without it. On the terrace, you can see the St. Vitus Cathedral, Lobkowicz Palace, the Vltava, the red roofs of the Little Quarter, the mini Eiffel, and the rolling green foliage of the Petrin Hill from your dinner table.

We had a lovely time at BellaVista for late-afternoon cocktails, after a long day touring the Prague Castle, which included the Cathedral of St Vitus. We sat at the terrace and it was magical. It overlooked the city of Prague, just below we also viewed the monastery and their vineyard. We enjoyed our drinks and snack of local cheese and meats on a platter with fruit and nuts. Our servers were very attentive to us. A shout out to our server Jery or George!

My husband took me to Bellavista the last night of our stay. We came early enough to get a great seat to overlook the city. We had been to a few places overlooking the city and this was by far the most stunning. I give it a 10 for views and a 7 for food. A little overpriced compared to other restaurants in the city (food was ok) but you really pay for the view and romantic setting.

The restaurant offers definitely one of the best views in the city. The food was also tasty, the drinks are slightly overpriced though. At the end, the waiter didn't show the receipt and asked for the sum already including the 10-% tips, because the wireless device automatically includes 10% tips O_o. We would give the tips any way but normally I am used to decide how much tips I want to give. The case has been clarified, but still be aware what you are paying for. Still a very lovely place!
