It is just one of the best meals I've even had. A la carte offers just melt in your mouth. There's always a variety of fresh fish & meet which they will bring at your table and you can pick the piece you want and they will make it just the way you like. Open kitchen. You can see the 'chef in action' :) Great selection of wines. Great personnel, speaking several languages. And I love that lemon or forest fruit sourish sorbet they bring you between the meals. Oh yeah and the deserts are fantastic. The restaurant itself looks just amazing. Indeed, not the cheapest dinner you would have in Brno but it is worth every single penny. Perfect for all occasions. My favourite in Brno.

I stopped at this restaurant for a quick lunch only as I was traveling from Olomouc to Prague to catch my flight after a business trip. The restaurant seemed very nice and was non-smoking (I believe, but I'm not 100% sure), which unfortunately is not always the case in Czech Republic.
As I was very limited by time, I only had a chance to try a salad, some grilled vegetables, tuna carpaccio and pea soup. All ingredients were very fresh and nicely prepared, especially tuna carpaccio with burrata and pea soup. Grilled vegetables could be improved, but vegetarian dishes/side dishes are not their specialty. I would definitely go back to try more.

Great food and a fantastic atmosphere in a restaurant that is part of the Grandezza Hotel.

The staff are attentive, and made an effort for this vegetarian. Prices are high though, when compared to other restaurants on Brno, hence not 5-stars.

Well worth a visit.

Located in a hotel on a quaint square near Brno's cathedral, Il Mercato is a very nice, if pricey, Italian restaurant. We went for a late lunch the Sunday before Christmas.

The restaurant clearly showcases their fresh proteins - quite literally - right before your eyes. There is the main menu you can peruse, but without getting too far along, they will bring out their fresh fish selections and finally the "turf".

There were some very appealling items on this list, the prices matched their quality, of course. We ordered fresh turbot prepared for two with tomatoes and other spring vegetables. The fish was carved fresh from the oven before our eyes - of course, after all the showmanship thus far...

They had some very good accompanying dishes as well and a good list of wines.

Certainly a potential budget breaker, but a very one at that.
