“True hidden gem”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

I first visited this restaurant 3 years ago. Pure coincidence. It is on the way from Spindleruv mlyn, big ski resort in Krkonose, north-east Czech republic. There it is hard to find anything that isn't either overpriced and bad or just simply horrible.

This restaurant is not to tempting to look at from the outside. You'd definitely do a big mistake missing is because of it.

The menu is amazing - it is modern, fresh and besides being quite robust catering to every taste, it still remains simple and elegant.

The waiting staff is again something else - if you are used to "czech standard" you will be pleasantly surprised. If you are used to a good "american standard" you will hardly notice anything strange. But as I wrote in many of my reviews, american standard is not a standard here. Here they are friendly, quite fast and pleasantly vocal.

As to the food - I had from seasonal menu Asparagus soup and a Spinach salad with salmon. Both great.

Because it is already my 3rd visit in 4 years and they are still very good and getting better each time, I can highly recommend this place.
