Lovely friendly restaurant, wonderful food and excellent service. We spent a very relaxed afternoon sampling the menu and wine. Would recommend a visit when you want an alternative to the local cuisine.

We stopped by for some Sangria to warm up, the prague weather is getting super cold. It was tasty and my spanish friends were also happy with it. They were very friendly, had a family feel to it.
