Went there on a Tuesday, therefore we needn't make a reservation. Had the tuna steak moroccan style, which was absolutely great, and we also had a green salad with duck, which was also amazing! The place has a very cozy atmosphere, and it's nice to get a little away from all the pork and beer you have in Czech Republic!... More

Chose this restaurant based on the Trip Advisor reviews. Unfortunately, got a bit disappointed. The prices were quite high, yet the food - nothing special. I had myself a pork chop with potatoes and cheese. Arrived in a clay pot, however it was extremely salty and full of sauce, the meat was quite chewy Most of my friends had some... More

We visit this place yearly, due to family celebrations. Every year for last 3-4 years, we come to 'Life is Dream' and have yet to have a bad experience or be disappointed in the food. So for me that means a lot. Each time we visit, the staff are pleasant & helpful, the restaurant is a combination of old and... More

Looking at the TripAdvisor reviews we decided to move away from the main square for a good meal. Just two minutes walk from the main square there is the restaurant we were looking for. Our luck: they still had one table available in the courtyard, not exactly in the open air, but nice anyway. The menu is huge, lots of... More

The quality of the food and service was excellent from the starters to the deserts. The quality of English from the staff and translated on the menu is some of the best I have witnessed in Czech. The food was very tasty and brought out quickly. There is a very eclectic choice. The value for money is good. Would definitely... More

This restaurant really has the best butcher in the region but there's so much more on the incredibly huge menu including vegetarian. Charming old building and good service too, wish I could come again as there were too many amazing things on the menu it was difficult to choose.

We were going out to celebrate a birthday on July 22, 2016. Got recommended this restaurant. The food was very good but the service was terrible. Ignorant waiters who rarely attended. Orders were forgotten. No good experience.
