Amazing inside, beautiful mosaic on the columns and walls. You can transfer to another century. You can eat here breakfast, lunch or dinner or just enjoy coffee. If you want to eat, you have to make reservations

Amazing place. Amazing food. Friendly staff. But I don't think placing breakfast buffet right at the entrance is the best solution. It's a small place where there are many guests who are choosing meals from the buffet and incoming guests has no place to stand...and wait to be seatedMore

Cafe Imperial is one of my favorite eating establishments in Prague. It is well known for its exceptional breakfast, arguably the best breakfast option in Prague. And don’t miss out on a late afternoon Prosecco! Classy place with great decor that retains that feel of...old Prague. Don’t miss it.More

On a stroll through the city, the Imperial beckoned to us with its amazing interior. The food was just as impressive! Perfectly prepared and presented, this was an absolute highlight. The service was friendly and attentive, the prices meant great value for money. Once was...not enough- we had to return for a second visit, which confirmed our impression of top professionality and quality. The Imperial is now one of our “musts” for a visit to Prague and an excellent memory of a successful trip.More

We were recommended the Café Impérial by our hotel concierge and we could not be happier. The decor itself is breathtaking. Lovely staff. Definitely a must-do for a romantic evening. The tables are perfectly set, with crisp, high-quality linen and elegant glasses & cutlery. Very,...VERY good traditional Czech food. The value for money is incredible, we ended up paying less for a 3 course meal + drinks than we did at a fast food-ish trendy place the day before.More

First day in Prague, we decided to have diner at Café Impérial and came roughly after 6:30pm. Although it was still early, it took some time until we were greeted and we were firstly told that there wasn't any table available for us. The waitress...actually didn't care to check because when she did, there were free tables. Obviously it's worth coming here just to see the incredible interior but there's more to it. The teriyaki salmon was very good and the dessert was incredible. I got a chocolate bomb and it simply was perfect (I'm not gonna say more about it, no spoilers!). Probably the best desert I’ve ever had, it was just perfect (taste-, texture-, and presentation-wise). I tried the banana-egg nog desert as well and wow, delicious! They also have a large choice of slices of cakes to choose from. Oh, and the onion soup is pretty great too! I was not a big fan of the service, it looked like they didn't care very much but it remained very professional. The prices are on the more expensive side but still completely reasonable for the quality of the food and the stunning setting.More

Very nice interior, fresh and tasty food. Excellent service, but beer may be colder. Best recommendations for this restaurant

We were staying in the hotel so thought we'd try the restaurant. Even during covid it was packed at 21:00 on a Saturday night but they found us a table. Wonderful surroundings - the décor looks original art deco. A lovely waitress looked after us...throughout and sorted us with some excellent wine and a fine local Czech beer. Great atmosphere in the very large restaurant, really tasty Czech cuisine (grandma's food but poshed up a bit). Highly recommend the whole hotel but even if you don't stay there try out the restaurant.More
