Food was great, I had the veal cheeks and hip jam and the service was good and quick.
Beer prices are on the expensive side (but in my opinion a normal markup for a good quality restaurant).
I think this we be good place to impress a date.

Being in Prag one wants to drink a good beer. On the way home to our hotel we sat down outside this small reataurant and just wanted to drink a beer before continuing our walk. They had only 0.33 l servings which was ok for us so we drank two beer each. The surprise came when we got the bill. 440 korunas for four 0.33 l beers was extremely expensive. The normal prices, also at better locations, are between 24 and about 70 korunas per 0.5 l. After that we never ordered beer anywhere else without knowing the price in advance. After my objection to the bill, the only comment by the waitress was that dark beer (120 koruna per 0.33 l) is more expensive than light beer (80 koruna per 0.33 l). We drank three dark and one light beer. I cannot rate the food, but I would never go there again. (This review was written in english)

The restaurant offered modern Czech cuisine which is perfect for a nice night out with good food and stylish surroundings. Dress well if you are coming here, and be prepared to pay for quality food, gourmet meal options and good service. The staff were very polite and accommodated us without a booking, but it is not your average casual restaurant. We loved it!

Friends had visited this restaurant a year ago, and recommended it for our trip. We made reservations on Saturday evening, expecting it would be crowded, but it was not. The dill soup was especially delicious. My wife was very pleased with the duck and two cabbages. I had the chef recommendation veal cheeks. The meat and sauce were delicious. The dumplings were attractive, but not flavorful. The evening special dessert of terrine of poppy was unique and delicious. Biggest downside was the wine. Only Czech wines by the glass, and non-Czech wines by bottle were ridiculously expensive.

Enjoyed this small and cozy restaurant located beyond one of the arches on the Old Town Square. It is very comfortable and dressed nicely with white linen and glass. We had seen it earlier in the day and liked that the menu featured contemporary versions of Czech dishes. We sampled duck with two versions of cabbage and an incredible red lentil salad that we would order again. The staff was young, very cordial and accommodating. We would love to return.
