“Great food and location.”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

It was the only restaurant in Prague we really wanted to return to and we actually did! Both times the food was very tasty (we tried goulash, duck and trout), I especially enjoyed hot bread the waitress served at the beginning and she also helped me to put out bones from the fish with a special knife, which was very nice. We also tried Czech dark beer there, it was tasty. The owner of this place is a very friendly man from Ukraine, we talked with him while waiting for our food to be cooked, he even showed us a picture of his wife, it was sweet.:) The prices in this place are average. This restaurant is located near the Charles Bridge and is a great choice if you found yourself hungry in Mala Strana.

“Good, but not specially impressive.”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

Main eating halls of the restaurant are downstairs, in the cellar. That is why it was rather cold there - the temperature was not comfortable at all to have a long, nice, relaxing dinner. The decor is very minimalistic. The food was good, just good. Nothing was for free - we were given bread at the beginning of our dinner. After we finished I found its price in the bill! Ridiculous! The starters were tasty, but not generous. The main dishes - fried carp and baked half a duck were decent, but I had an impression all the way that every piece and every gram of that food was counted and we got exactly that amount that was mentioned in the menu. Definitely not more, probably a little bit less.
The owners are Russian/Ukrainian. They care about the level of service and are very friendly and nice, but even more they seem to care about the profit. So the portions are not at all generous. The beer seemed to be diluted. The coffee was TERRIBLE! Do not order coffee in this restaurant - it is a waste of money. The prices were OK. 9 USD for the salad, 9,5 USD for my carp with potatoes, 12,5 USD for the duck. Together with alcohol and coffee we paid c. 60 USD.

“Nice food, great service”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Traditional Czech cuisine. Had a very nice duck in berries sauce and pancakes for desert. They deliver what they promise, in Prague, generally be advised of the heavy czech food. In this restaurant, I experienced very, very nice service. Try this place.

“Wonderful find!!”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Just off Karmelitska in Mala Strana was this cute little restaurant that we just happened to find! It was not on my well researched restaurant list but it SHOULD have been there!! We sat at a table on the street level but enjoyed going downstairs to see the atmospheric cellar where there were other tables. We were only there for lunch but judging by the quality of the food we would definitely recommend trying them for dinner in the evening also!!
I had fresh mushroom soup and my friend had the garlic soup. The bread and soup + a lovely vegetable salad were delicious and freshly made!
We drank a lovely crisp white wine to round off the meal.
The staff was pleasant and helpful!
it is nice to see folks trying hard to please their customers and succeeding so well! we hope more folks find this little treasure!
