Description: Motto - Enjoy your time to "be here" ... What - Blue Wagon offers modern cuisine as it should be. We cook with quality, fresh and "primarily seasonal ingredients" that are processed by friendly, healthy methods. How - With the good food, we will recommend you suitable wines - we offer not only Czech, French or Spanish, but mostly Austrian wines, which we are happy to have the largest selection in Prague. Why - Great food and excellent wine would mean nothing without a perfect service. Your visit is always a honour to us, and therefore service is among the key indicators of your satisfaction. Where - Blue Wagon is located in Královské Vinohrady, Prague 2, close to the Square of Peace. Bright and airy interior will appeal to its simplicity and attention to detail. Something extra - We will prepare corporate meetings, business lunches, for teambuilding activities we offer tastings with our sommelier, or we will prepare special events on request. Or just come for a romantic dinner ...

“not even average”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

I heard this restaurant was average and saw the menu so why not try when you stay few days in this beautiful city. Not good choice. Had a "ponzu salad" with overcooked dry shrimps and some sort of ratatouille which actually had nothing to do with ponzu flavor. The main was nothing special, wine pairings ok but the service was not helpful, not that polite. The place was quite empty during the dinner service. Atmosphere bit cold, maitre´d didnt even say bye or thank you. Weird place,overpriced with no reason to come back. Not recommend.

“Not recommend”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Went to this place after reading all the excellent reviews and i was very disapointed. The food was really bland with no taste. For this value and price i would expected much more. The presentation was weak, so was the lazy staff. The day after i had a stomachache and felt really bad. I would not recommend this restaurant and i am really wondering how the travellers rate on this page. Here are some pics, make your own opinion.

“A "must" if you're in Prague”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

The restaurant was really buzzing with locals and the waiting staff were helpfulness personified - nothing was too much trouble. We had a tasty salad as a starter, my husband had pheasant to follow and I had the venison ragout - both delicious. We also took a recommendation of a local wine - very reasonable and extremely gluggable! All in all a lovely place to spend an evening.

“Great value!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We chose this restaurant based on comments in TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. Blue Wagon is located near the Namesti Miru subway station, a bit outside the most touristic area of Prague. While most of the clients were foreigners when we dined there (it was Easter evening), it was clear that it was not one of the tourist traps so common in downtown Prague. The decor is modern and tidy, yet relaxed, and the service was friendly and attentive.

The menu offered an interesting selection of appetizers and main courses and the wine selection was outstanding. I opted for the soup of the day (pumpkin -- simple but perfectly seasoned and tasty) and pheasant breast (a suprisingly generous and juicy portion accompanied by vegetables), while my wife had grilled foie gras (beautifully prepared) and deer medallions (with a surprising coffee. Plating was quite sophisticated, without being pretentious. We both had Czech wines by the glass recommended by our waiter - a nice discovery that paired well with our respective orders.

We spent roughly 80 euros for two, including three courses and a few glasses of wines each -- a great value considering the quality of the food and service.

“Food is not a sideline here”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

This was our second time at Blue Wagon. And though some restaurants are just there to meet friends and have a nice chat, this place is all about it's food. At least they got us and specially the kids wraped round there little finger. The menu has a broad variety of interesting food, there is a good choice of wines (try some of the czech ones). The food and the wine we had was both time a sheer delight. The only thing: this place might want to work on the choice of aperitifs.

So you might think there is a snap to it? Actually no. The prices a fair, there is nothing to complain about. Well, the only thing might be the pronounciation of the road "Uruguayska" - Hungarien road. Rather tell your cab driver you want to go to Blue Wagon restaurant. But if you are looking for a special light bulb moment about food - give it a shot and reserve a table at the Blue Wagon.
