Description: You will find our restaurant in the very heart of Prague, in the place which inspired the famous romantic poet R.M. Rilke. The restaurant provides a calm oasis of gastronomical experience, worth discovering, in the busy, pulsing centre of the town. We build upon the very best of Czech gastronomical tradition. Our cuisine isn't based on extravagancies, but on a straight approach to Czech meals, the freshest local ingredients and humility to the culinary profession. The best proof is the satisfaction of our customers.

We ate here last year and liked it so much we returned. We made a reservation for dinner which I think is essential during the summer. The restaurant itself oozes character but badly needs air conditioning. Having the windows wide open, onto the street and a fan is not sufficient. The food is freshly prepared so be prepared for a wait. It seems to be a family run concern.

This place desparetely needs airconditioning as dining there can be a very uncomfortable experience. The service was good and the food better than average without being outstanding.

This was our first meal in Prague and it was lovely. The restaurant has true bohemian decor and atmosphere complete with a candle on every table and a street view through an arched stucco window. The food was real homemade czech/moravian dishes like crispy roasted duck with sweet and sour red cabbage. The service was excellent.We were waited on by the owner who provided warm, efficient and courteous service--a level of customer service not always found in the Czech Republic. Overall it was a wonderful meal and experience and I highly recommend it.

We absolutely loved this restaurant - it's just a few blocks from our hotel and there was a terrible thunderstorm that rolled through so we wanted to eat somewhere close. I am so glad we found it, and my guess is that even though we're here for a full week, we're not going to find a place we like better. Our meals were fantastic (beef goulash and pork tenderloin) and the bees who contributed to the honey cake must have come from a very special place because that cake tasted like heaven.

We went here on our last night and kept to the czech food theme.I had tried to reserve a table over the internet in advance but could not.When we arrived at the hotel the receptionist recomended this restaurant so she phoned for us.
When we arrived i mentioned it to the owner and he mentioned that they only have eight tables and people reserve but do not turn up,so you cannot blame him really.
The restaurant was cosy,the food was lovely and again at a good price.
The service was good and helpful with big portions as well
