“A lovely meal but lacking in atmosphere”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

The restaurant is on the bustling main road by Wencesles Square. We read the good reviews about the restaurant and cave so we decided to try it out. It was a lovely restaurant and although the cave setting is not real (obviously), it was a rare experience that was lovely.

When we entered the restaurant, we were probably the youngest couple there by about 30 years. It was very very quiet, so quiet that my girlfriend actually started whispering to me. It was lacking in atmosphere and everyone was so intent on being quiet and eating that it actually made us feel awkward to have a conversation.

The service was great, and we would like to thank the waiters very for attending to our needs as my girlfriend has strict dietary requirements (although it took a bit of explaining!). The food was delicious and was rounded of with some beer and wine.

Overall it was a lovely restaurant that serves delicious food but really lacks atmosphere. If you are a young couple looking for somewhere a bit more lively, I would look elsewhere. But if you are looking for a quiet romantic meal, this restaurant really is perfect.

“A beatyful restaurant”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

The restaurant was in the cellar of our hotel. We waited for each other at the hotel bar. When we went down, the bartender told us we could bring our drinks with us. The waiter at the restaurant was not happy about that and that made a sad feeling, as we had asked. The restaurant it self is really beatyful and worth a visit. Most dishes we choosed was really good tasting.

“Posh and tasty!”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

We went hear for one meal as a treat. It is located centrally in Prague. There is a fairly wide choice of menu. I had Thai prawn for starters - which was disappointing as it only came with ONE prawn. The accompany beetroot thing was full of cheese which I couldn't eat but wasn't listed on the menu either so I didn't know. However my one prawn tasted nice. Next I had the wild boar which was very nice. The food is very rich and fanciful and may not be everyone's cup of tea but the quality of ingredients cannot be faulted.

Service was good, although like others there was a slight 'stuffy' atmosphere. We were the youngest there and I would say the rest of the diners were 50+. However, we were treated courteously at all times.

I would recommend Triton for a change from the other restaurants or for a special occasion. And not really one for children.
