This restaurant was beautifully decorated inside, and had bottles of wine on display in literally every direction. Our waiter was proficient in English and went straight to this. It was an excellent dining experience. They made us feel very comfortable, and there was a range of guests, some in suits talking business, others dressed up, and others still in jeans. We never felt out of place which was a good sign. We were still gobsmacked that a restaurant of this class operated continuous service.
The food was exceptional. There was an amuse bouche of goats cheese with mixed berries. It was basically cheese with jam. It did not have the same wow factor that other starters have had. This was made up for by the bread platter. We could not get over the size of it, and it was photo worthy. There were four different types of bread on it, and then they came out with bread sticks as well. It all came with a garlic butter and was quite nice.
For entrée we had ravioli with feta and spinach and pine nuts which was delectable, and tortellini of confit duck with walnuts and apple. Both were very tasty but quite small. What we liked was the waiter explained the contents of the dish in its entirety as it appeared on the menu, which helped for remembering what you had ordered. The mains were equally good and a nice size meaning we were not overly full and it was nicely spaced out. We had chicken stuffed with prosciutto with pea puree and potato and it was a ten out of ten and veal with chocolate and chilli, potato puree and parsnip crisp which was also good once we dodged a couple of chilli seeds. It was close to ten out of ten too. We finished with good coffees and thoroughly enjoyed a well paced meal.

A friend called in and said: show me a place nice and pleasant to enjoy with superior atmosphere.
I said: well, let's jump in and have a small bite.

Result is: simply the best in town or put in that way: second to none.

If you love good food matched with good wine and want to get the whole experience, rather than been fed, then this is the place to go to.
We went there for our wedding anniversary and ordered the slow food menu with the wine menu. However, I was not able to drink alcohol, since I am pregnant, but the waiter was so kind to put a small amount in my glass as well, so I could taste how the food was paired with the vine. My husband on the other hand enjoyed it fully and truly. ☺ And loved it. We both did.
It is not cheap, but it is not the place you would go that random Thursday night when you just don’t want to cook yourself. It is a place for celebrating life. Good life. ☺

Useful tip: Please dress accordingly – it is a nice place and just showing that you are aware of that by your understanding of the dress code will just show the needed respect for the staff that is really doing their job excellent.
We felt that there were too many sport shoes and jeans around us, when we were in a black tie and a dress… And no, we didn’t felt uncomfortable. Not even a little.
It’s not a family restaurant. It’s the nicest place in Brno, so please… ☺
