“Romantic dinner”

We have visited with my husband and our 6 years old daugter restaurant to celebrate his birthday. Big experience, lovely food. Its expensive, of course in 5star hotel, but time to time its worth it...

“Birthday bliss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

A dear friend and I were here for the wine brunch this weekend. The food was just perfect and the wine was stunning. We have been so many times for this brunch, but this weekend was so wonderful that I thought that they deserved a five-star review. The staff was friendly and the service was personal. The rabbit soup was one of the most memorable dishes I have had in this city.

“Dinner on 14.2.2014”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

One of the best experiences in Prague ever. Food was excellent, everything precisely made, tasty..but to be honest, not sure if I will remember tastes for ever :)...nothing really super special...but the 3 course menu was really fine...the starter (salmon...) a really big portion.....great wine pairing and absolutely great waiters (Ondrej) and all the staff. The local chef Mr. Stift was serving his masaman sauce personally :) which was great.
