“A pure seafood rhapsody”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

I come to Giardino restaurant quiet often and it's now when I decided to write a review because after many meals I ate there, they never disappointed me. Recently I visited Giardino with my friends and we had seafood dinner. We shared Adriatico plate as a starter and it was simply fantastic. Seafood was fresh and octopus was one of the best ones I had in my life (similar quality I experienced in Tulum, Mexico)! After that we had fish on the grill and there was not a single complaint not only to freshness, but also execution. Bravo. We will be back for sure and I will definitely recommend this restaurant to many others. Thank you guys, I loved every bite!

“Mixed feelings...”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

The restaurant is present every Saturday morning on the farm product market on Vltava River - "Náplavka". They serve fresh fish and sea products "a la plancha" and a very tasty Pleskavica as well. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful.

That´s the reason why we visited the restaurant for a lunch. It has a very nice outdoor seating – between buildings, but large and among trees. Very pleasant during summer.
It is a family run business, so the staff is not extremely professional, but very friendly…
I had a chance to taste about 10 dishes. They really do try, but one dish is very good, then the second just normal and the third much below average… Very inconsistent… I wonder why a Serbian owner chose to run an Italian restaurant? Why not Balkan style?

I will happily return to have a snack on Saturday on the market, but not in the restaurant since there are better “Italian” places for the same price in Prague.

“Do not recommend”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Definitely do not recommend. I visited restaurant with my boyfriend and we ordered a fish. They presented fish as a fresh, but such a tough fish we never eaten before. If I complained, service was rude and let us paid whole price. For such a low quality the price was soo expensive. By the way, we were sick from the small piece of fish we ate.

“A LITTLE EXPENSIVE BUT LOVELY”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

Giardino is a little on the expensive side, and the wines especially so, but the atmosphere in the garden compensates. The waiters were particularly attentive. We would go there again for a special occasion.
